How to Choose a Blog Name That’ll Grow With Your Brand

Clothes, food, habits — outgrowing things is a natural part of life. That’s true for brands as well. When brands decide they’ve outgrown their current way of doing things, this might call for a rebrand. Outgrowing a brand, or at least a brand name, is common. Marketing platform Mailchimp used their rebranding to help the company transition to a more “grownup” brand that would allow them to serve more small businesses. Many blogs I read, like “Liv’s Healthy Life,” (Now known as just “Liv B,”) quickly rebrand when they realize their old blog name just doesn’t make sense anymore. While…

Should You Be Blogging For Enterprise Customers? Yes, Here’s Why.

When I sit down to write a blog post, I stick to a routine that has some flexibility. The way I write changes from time to time, but two things never change: who I’m writing for, and how to deliver the best experience. When you sit down to write, what are some of the questions you ask yourself? Are you keeping your audience in mind?

In 2020, there’s no question of whether or not blogs generate leads. In fact, marketers who prioritize blogging as a marketing strategy report 13-times the ROI of companies that don’t. However, many marketers still worry that blogging’s effectiveness could be losing steam. Fears that “blogging is dead” haven’t been eased by research.

But, before you get wrapped…

Does Your Blog Need Its Own Social Media Channels?

If you were to take a quick scroll down my Instagram feed, you’d see the three types of accounts I follow: reality TV stars, musicians, and food bloggers. Yes, you read that right: food bloggers. And, while it might sound a little out of the ordinary that blogs are popping up on social media channels, like Instagram, it’s not an out of the ordinary practice. Blog owners can see great success on social media. They can engage with followers, use hashtags to find new ones and expand reach, and promote their posts.

I’m a millennial. Every time I think about making a big purchase, want to learn about new Twitter or Facebook updates, or even plan a trip, I do research. And I always take the same first step: I read a blog post I find on social media. You may run a blog that’s struggling to gain millennial readers. Your problem might not be the content you’re posting, but how you’re executing and promoting that content. For instance, when you write product roundups, are you including all of the necessary information? Are you writing technology demos for an audience that most…
