Your Marketing and Your Blog - Are they a matching pair?

Marketing is a very hot topic right now, actually it has been for a while now...it's not just a buzz word for businesses to justify their huge corporate retreats, and BIG money Marketing spend....it's a universal word that really does affect all of us. Whether you have a small start-up blog with only your first few posts or you're a fully fledged full time blogger cutting a pay cheque- Marketing is the thread that runs through a successful 'brand.'

Because that's what you have- a brand- your blog is an extension of you, and you, your words, your images, videos etc. it's all a BRAND....and brands need Marketing to support them in reaching their goals, and succeeding in the plans you have for them.
