Is Blogging an Effective Way to Advertise?

"Hello all. I have noticed that more and more people are blogging and I am wondering if blogging is a good form of advertisement? Also, I have never tried blogging and am wondering exactly what it entails. I get that it is like an online journal that is shared with others but is it something that you should write in everyday? Any specific topics that are more popular than others? Basically, what makes a blog successful?"

Blogging can be useful as advertising if you're providing answers to your visitors' questions. Become a resource.

I have just begun to blog and, thanks to social media, am quickly gaining a lot of followers, though these haven't converted to sales of products yet, but the whole process is enjoyable all the same - especially if you write your own content. That's a cost saver!

it's excellent if you can get tons of followers and you have to be posting all of the time... many people can't do it and choose other ways of advertising. i for example create and sell dog clothing and i simply don't have the time to do it everyday... sadly i don't get any followers.

Blogging in and of itself does not guarantee success but it can definitely draw traffic to your main website. You'll have to continue to add fresh content or promote it, through different means of advertising or by commenting on other blogs.

Blogging is effective in that, if networked properly with other bloggers, it will bring more attention to your site itself. That is, of course, if your site is well represented on your blog.

Good advice! I agree completely with this.

Hello Diana,

Creating a blog is easy but maintaining a blog is tough,in this case you need to update your blog regularly so that readers keep visiting your blog all the time.And the content,the presentation is also very important here.

Those are alot of questions. Best form of advertising is word of mouth. Or in this case word of computer. I think , blogging is very important. We get alot of visits , because of it. Anytime, you are putting your name out there. It's important.

Blogging can be very rewarding if you know what you're doing. There are people like myself that have blogs pulling in $1000's of dollars monthly. You want to find a good "niche" or topic to center your blog around. Find products or services that compliment you niche, and build a steady stream of traffic. You can find a profitable niche by using googles keyword tool.

There are two ways to look at the success of a blog- From the eyes of the blogger and through the eyes of a reader. If the blog I write is tracking towards the measureable goals I set for it, then to me, it's successful. From the readers eyes, if the blog is entertaining, informing, and relaying the kinds of things I am interested in, and doing it quickly, then I am satisfied.

I've seen lots of blogs that might be a commercial success to the blogger, but a whole host of readers may not share in that view.

I guess my point is, when you set out to blog, have an idea what you want to accomplish. If your goal is to make lots of money, then you have a long, long road ahead of you. If your goal is to entertain and/or inform, that road is a lot easier to travel.

Blogging is a great way to express ideas in detail.Moreover,you can earn money by using your blog to promote or advertise products for companies or your own products.

The best way to start blogging is by joining the free blogger site and getting a blog for free.

The average blogger posts atleast after every one day.I usually post according to my whims but it is advisable to post atleast four times a week.

The best thing to promote or write about is something that interests you or something you like doing or can relate to.

well yes, however it is not advertising it is a form of building your reputation in the specific industry you are trying to cater and adding a link end of your blog so that viewers would look more about you as an expert and in the process you can pitch in the product you are selling.

Blogs and forums can be a source of traffic if placed in the right ones, but mainly you do it for linking, but once you have a link to a site that all the crawler sees, the rest of your post are simply for traffic.

Blogging should not be considered as an "advertisement" but it should be informative and potential readers must benefit from it. If it is deemed as an advertisement readers will stray from your links.

Of course, if it is god information, people will click on your desired links...and perhaps they will subscribe or purchase via your link.

In short, it is how you have "touched" them thru your blog.

I have a blog as well as a website and so far I don't know what the blog is good for. I guess I have to get each person to go to my blog individually. Makes no sense so far. I am trying to figure out how to get to lots of people.

Good to have another presence on the internet though.

yes it can be if you advertise well and network well, as well as having good topics, popular topics i find are ambitions and issues, its always good to have pictures and video's on your blog too and not to overly advertise on your blog, some people like me get very put ogg blogs with too much advertising space on them!

How much advertising is too much? I have a blog and just wondering.

I think the best way for blogging to help you in advertising is if you integrate blogging with social websites. For instance, start a facebook group or join one that is somehow related to what you want to advertise and then use that as a place to post information and links to your blog to drive traffic to your blog.

That's a GREAT idea! I'll try it. Thanks.

I've wondered about that too, since it seems to be a very popular type of promotion amongst a lot of crafters. I think the most effective blogs go beyond pushing one person's shop (or even just rotating through product features) and offer content that might be of interest to people who aren't just shopping, like tutorials or reviews of local stores or restaurants.

Blogging is a wonderful way to advertise. Depending on your blog site, they are automatically picked up in main search engines, ie, google. I write 3 articles a week and include an images of my work on the post. Images link back to my shops.

I find blogging very useful but it took a lot of work, many changes in my approach and sacrifice in what it was orignally about to get it going successfully... and it's still a learning curve, although i find that if you make sure you know your target audience and make the blog cater for them, post regularly although not too much, have something that people will want to revisit on a regular basis like a special feature or something, and in no way totally focus on yourself in both your posts and interaction with other bloggers you should find that things start moving in the right direction. You'll want to bring in topics of interest and give your visitors a reason to want to stay and check out more. It depends entirely on what you want to get out of it i suppose but you want quality traffic in the least so the most important thing is to target a niche and not try and bring in any old joe because you'll have the numbers but maybe not what you want from them.

Hi there Yes I have decided to change my website over to a blogging site. They do seem to generate a lot of traffic. I have also added a free forum and a section where you can add your own artcles and links. I will let you know how it does. Good luck with your own site

Kind Regards

When posting to your blog you want to also ping your posting. This gets the word out to various networks. After posting to your blog and publishing it. Go to http://www.pingoat.com , fill out the form and publish your message to various blogging sites. It is free!

Pingoat is one out of three from my Ping records.

Blogging is one of the way for communicating with people.

If you don't have blog,you have limited your exposure to millions blogging people of the world.

Many nice blog sites such as Technorati,Blogcatalog, Entrecard and so on, must use have a blog to join.

You should at least one blog with you,so that you can post comment on blogger,wordpress,for increasing traffic to your site.

However,blogging needs time and good quality contents. I am blogging just for getting people to understand what I am doing. My last stop is sharing my Lead Capture Page for promoting at end :)

Nice to meet you all here

Have an incredible day

I think the best way for blogging to help you in advertising is if you integrate blogging with social websites. For instance, start a facebook group or join one that is somehow related to what you want to advertise and then use that as a place to post information and links to your blog to drive traffic to your blog.
