BLOGGING HOW I SEE IT AND WHAT I DO

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Hi Active Rainers.  This month Jeff Dowler, CRS and Brian England our blogging tips.  I am very happy to participate since I love sharing of best practices and exchanging ideas.

I provide ideas in my consulting practice and I build trust through doing seminars, short talks and listening to others.  When someone asks me what I do I tell them that I help organizations get better results.  When asked how do you do that, the answer can not be straight forward. I know that there are many scenarios

Tip number 1 - your blogging should create a relationship of trust between you and your readers.

I build trust by presenting scenarios, cases studies, and possible solutions.  Hence blogging for me is writing about things that are real cases and offering some possible solutions.

When I started blogging in Active Rain I learned a new medium that can be easily adapted to other professions including mine.  So for me it is presenting a case, an opportunity, a problem and writing about it.

I know that SEO goes up and down.  I watch it but it doesn't drive me. Trust does.

Tip number 2 - Create content that answers a potential client's need.

My web site is full of topics for potential clients and I add a new one every Friday.  I get discussions on the topics just like the comments I get here in the Rain.  When anyone wants to know more about what I do I give them a general statement and also direct them to my blog.  I do have topics that I update from time to time with updated information.

In my next post I will mention some things that I think important to stay away from with your blogging.
