Blogs are great for promoting key messages and distributing information about a brand, company or organizations. Starting a blog can be a valuable tool to help businesses sell their products while making better connections with customers, but it’s not as simple as slapping up some content. Creating a blog that is seen, shared and respected takes some research, strategy and consistency. Here are a few tips that I incorporate at Online Marketing Blog which other companies can follow to increase the value their corporate blog provides.
Research & Use Keywords. Optimize your blog for search engines. Use a keyword research tool to create a keyword glossary of words related to your brand, business, topic or industry that are in demand. Content creators should use the glossary as a reference for planning, writing and publishing content online.

By design, software and technology companies exist to solve long-held problems in new and innovative ways. And because technology can be so readily customized, by factors ranging from vertical industry focus to specific problems addressed, no two software or technology companies will ever be the same.
In much the same way, no two successful search marketing programs will ever be exactly alike. Each program will need to customized based on factors ranging from the type of prospects being targeted to specific objectives being achieved.
The three companies below, each having developed a unique software or technology offering, recently launched customized search marketing programs with TopRank® Online Marketing:

Whether you’re launching a new product or a new blog, reaching early adopters is essential.
Early adopters may be small in number – for example, only 11% of web users know how to use RSS. But this small group packs a big punch. Using the RSS example, those 11% of RSS subscribers are by and large active web publishers.
By attracting the attention of this early adopter crowd, you can achieve:
- Search Benefits: Early adopters make up the “Linkerati,” a group of web influencers who regularly link to worthwhile content from their highly trafficked websites and blogs. In most cases, the more quality links to your website or blog, the better the search visibility.
- Social Benefits: Early adopters are the connectors of the web. They’re actively talking and engaging throughout the social web. By getting them discussing your brand or product, it increases the propsensity to spread.
