Awareness is the first step to content marketing but the question I am sure you are asking is… the internet is so big and there are so many sites out there, how do I stand out?
Let’s go over the list of what you can do for awareness.
- Social Media Updates
- Digital Magazines
- Audio/Video Podcast
On this entire list, the overused awareness step is Blogging. The world wide web is becoming saturated with blogs. This does not mean you still cannot stand out but it just takes time.
Setting up a blog is easy and inexpensive. Anyone that tells you it cost $10,000 to make a blog is wrong!
It can be done for $50. Just search it on Youtube. I have placed the video I used to create my first site.
Want to know How I created my first blog…watch this video
Follow this video step by step and you would have created your first blog. Post on a regular basis 2 – 3 times a month and there is your awareness.
This is a short blog but it is truly that easy. Don’t worry about the name, the look, its the content that really matters. Once you start getting subscribers and awareness then spend some real money and make it look pretty.
I do cover more of these topics in earlier post. I have placed the links below…
