Let me set the scene. You’re sitting in a marketing meeting and someone mentions content marketing. It’s a phrase you’re familiar with but you’ve never quite gotten around to googling the exact definition. You nod along confidently as if you know what’s going on. It’s now 15 minutes later, your boss has gone through 11 PowerPoint slides on the new content marketing strategy and you’re feeling a little bit lost. If this scenario sounds even vaguely familiar then you’ve come to the right place.

We all know someone who rolls their eyes at the mention of the word ‘blogger’. A lot of people may be of the opinion that blogging is pointless or that they are above such a millennial-centric trend or some people might even think that writing blogs is easy and that anyone can do it. In actual fact, these assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth. HubSpot’s Ultimate List of Marketing Statistics for 2019 states that marketers who prioritise blogging are 13x more likely to have a positive ROI. However, blogging can be difficult, and almost no one gets it right the first time. Below are some common blogging mistakes that you should avoid:
What do Instagram's Gary Vee, Queensland’s Police Force and online media’s Thrillest have in common?
They all have a strong brand voice that is unique, distinct and clearly aligned with their company. This is why these specific brands have a successful and loyal following - they relate to their followers on an individual level.
What if we told you that something as simple as refreshing old blog content could increase your website's traffic?
If you have been in the blogging game for a while, then you know how difficult it is to create incredibly valuable, engaging content everyday that also receives the views and recognition it deserves. Even when you do roll out an outstanding piece of writing, it will eventually get buried under the continuous wave of posts you or your team will write in the coming months.
As your company grows and expands, it is inevitable that you will have to realign your brand at some point.
There are plenty of reasons for rebranding. It could be because your target market has grown apart from your brand over the years, your competition has recently undergone a modern upgrade, putting pressure on your company to do the same, or your brand has a poor reputation that you would like to change.
