Using a Blog or Forum to market your Brand.
Is the company Blog part of your web strategy?
Most people are familiar with Blogs. There are many types and thousands of styles. If you already have a company Blog it is fairly easy to build the existing and future contents into an existing or new webpage on your website. Here is a typical version. The benefits of greater visitor interest should not be under estimated. If they don't visit your Blog, they can see the contents on your website. Twice as much coverage. All part of providing a better customer service. Working with your existing website designer can boost visitor numbers and sales. You can also provide a RSS feed to get your business online to more people. Become a member of a specific Forum can provide ideas and solutions from like minded people. A Blogger is somebody who posts to a Blog, which should be done at least twice a week.
In the end you have to keep feeding information to a Blog and monitor visitor comments, if you don't do these things, you are wasting your time. A Blog is much a under used business resource, but is highly effective in boosting web traffic. A good place to spread your Blog news is at BlogFlux.
|Using the same Blog as a RSS UK business newsfeed also has many advantages. By using these different methods, you can use your Blog feed in different ways to present the information to the visitor in a way that catches their eye. Does your web design company use this technique to show more content?|

Maintaining a company Forum is time consuming and only recommended to companies that can afford to delegate some hours per week to supporting the Forum. There can be a great many benefits from a Forum, supporting new and existing customers, understanding what the problems are, building an enthusiastic group of supporters. I am a member of a number of business Forums, and often find solutions to problems, as people help people and the company benefits.
We are creating a number of different blog display procedures, including multiple Blog feeds, an image Blog and other styles. Might be worth you visiting again shortly.
