Blogging: Helping You Get Started

Posted by: in Communication, Customer Experience, Facebook, Pre-Commerce, Social Commerce, Thought Leadership on May 8, 2013

We are excited to be partnering with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to present a five part webinar series on social media and some of the key topics (blogging, mobile, content creation, influencer outreach) that support it. A recap, recording and slides from the first webinar on getting started with social media can be found here.

Today, we co-presented the second webinar titled “Blogging 101 — Helping You Get Started.” The webinar was an hour long with the first 45 minutes spent addressing key statistics, best practices on how to blog the right way along with a couple of case studies. The last fifteen minutes were spent answering questions.

During the presentation, I (Aaron Strout) was joined by SBA blogger, Caron Beesley and small business blogger/digital strategist, Simon Salt.

As promised, the full recording of the webinar is embedded below.  Here is the transcription for Blogging, Helping You Get Started. You can also click through to see the video on Youtube.

In addition, you can access some of the key slides on Slideshare below.

Note: The next webinar on using social networks is coming up on May 22 at 1 PM ET. We will have a sign up link soon.

  3. Thanks for organizing this, Aaron. It threw several big heaps of creative coal (err…non-polluting type, of course) into my blog’s train engine.
