I finally made it to the top! Alltop

by Adam Bean on September 29, 2011

Hey Beanie why do you Blog?  That is the question I am constantly asked. Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

Well there are a number of reasons. Number one being that I hope my year ten English teacher will see my name up on the internet some day soon and be really pissed off that someone that barely passed her classes, is now known for his writing!

Only kidding, although that would be really cool of it did happen!

There are numerous reasons I use a blog  so here are a few of them.

As far as I am concerned a business blog is the most powerful Small Business Marketing Idea that any business can employ. A blog is the home/hub of your online marketing efforts, and it is the piece of online real estate that you have full control over.

Something that you just don’t have on social sites, like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter etc (Although I do love all of these platforms)

Another huge benefit is that because of the post structure of a blog,  I can land people on a very specific post that is relevant to a particular topic via Facebook, Twitter etc. For example I can write a tweet……

“How to turn your Facebook Business Page Likers into $$”

Then land them on this link => Turn Likers into $$ Straight away they see the message in the headline of the post, they then immediately know that this is the information they are after, and continue to read the post.

In another example, the other day I ran a Facebook workshop. The power point presentation that I used (Done in Google Docs) was able to be easily put up on my blog. So that if anyone missed anything or wanted to review it at a later date, there it is right there on my blog.

And lets no forget that I love to make video for YouTube which you guessed it……

Cab be easily added to my blog.

But blogging isn’t just about posting on your own site. There is a whole community out there that you can interact with and join in their conversation. On such community is Alltop, and just recently as you can tell by the badge, I have been lucky enough to be accepted on their page.

Alltop brings together the top blogs from all over the web, on almost an imaginable topic. As you can tell Alltop bloggers wear their badge with pride.

Any way enough about me, now it’s your turn. Let me know when you make it to Alltop, so that I can add you to my feed.

 

Cheers Beanie
