    • Your Brand
      • Your competitive edge
      • Builds mind share
      • Readers will think of you first when they think of topics you write about
      • A lasting value: brand equity
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Key “Triggers for Compliance”
      • Reciprocity – We feel compelled to give back once we’ve been on the receiving end.
      • Authority – We’re more easily influenced by those we perceive to be authorities.
      • Likability – The more likeable someone is, the more easily we’re persuaded by him or her.
      • Scarcity – Things are more desirable when they’re less accessible or available.
      • Social Proof – We feel safer following the pack.
      • Commitment and Consistency – We want dependability.

    • Why I Blog by Andrew Sullivan in The Atlantic
      • “ To blog is to let go of your writing in a way, to hold it at arm’s length, open it to scrutiny, allow it to float in the ether for a while, and to let others pivot you toward relative truth.”
      • www.theatlantic.com/doc/200811/andrew-sullivan-why-i-blog
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Reasons Other Than Literary
      • Become the Expert Position yourself as a thought leader of your genre; your craft; your subject matter.
      • Reader Relationships In a forum where your main objective not is to sell, you'll have a more personal relationship between you and your readers. Blogs are a fast way to join the readers’ discussions, provide tips and insights, or receive feedback.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Reasons Other Than Literary
      • Media Relations Media can regularly check what you have to say, instead of just being passive – sometimes indifferent – recipients of press releases.
      • Collaboration Use blogs as a workspace where project members keep each other updated without wasting time writing reports or searching the Outlook inbox.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Reasons Other Than Literary
      • Knowledge Management Blogging is a record of your ‘stream of consciousness’ that’s valuable for both you and your readers to find needed information and resources. Blogging is on-the-job learning.
      • Positioning As a thought leader, your readers will pay attention. They'll read and discuss what you have to say and be ready to buy your next book when it’s available.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Reasons Other Than Literary
      • Simplified podcasting and videocasting Let your fans get to know you in ways other than text. A blog allows you to have a central location from which to distribute and syndicate these media files.
      • Showcase photo and image galleries A picture is worth a thousand words. So save yourself some writing time by archiving images that contribute to your personal brand.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • Reasons Other Than Literary
      • Test ideas and storylines A blog is an informal conversation where you invite your readers into engagement. Post an idea and see if it generates interest. Does anyone link to you? What do they say? Is it worth developing it into a book?
      • Rank high in search engines Google and other search engines reward sites that are updated often, that link to other sites, and most importantly, that has many inbound links. Start a blog and your ranking will boost.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • SEO Benefits of Blogging.
      • Recency of Content
      • Frequency of Content
      • Age of Content
      • Page Title
      • Keyword Density
      • RSS Distribution

      • More visitors mean more awareness, more word-of-mouth, more potential sales
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
      • More inbound links signal authority to search engines
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
      • The more pages you have on your site, the more chances you have of getting found in search engines.

    • How to Find Effective Bloggers
      • Use Google Blog Search. Enter your keywords to discover who’s written about that subject in the last week or so.
      • Google Alerts help you discover who’s talking about what.
      • Run a search directly from Search.Twitter, again using your keywords. Twitter can also be used to contact bloggers.
      • Look at the back links and blog rolls of interesting blogs.
      • Do a simple search in Google to see what pops up.
      www.StrategicIMC.com | jonathan.petersen@comcast.net
    • How to ID Influential Bloggers
      • How much traffic does the blog get?
      • Is it abusive, unfair, or biased?
      • What is its Google Page Rank?
      • How many links are pointing to the site?
      • How many comments are there and are those comments monitored?

    • Starting your own blog
      • Understand that the blog is not for the hard sell.
      • It has to be useful and talk about things other than your book(s) and what you’re up to. Make it a useful two-way conversation.
      • Encourage comments from your readers and respond to them.
      • Be yourself and write naturally.

    • Blogging mistakes to avoid
        • Infrequent blog posts . Six a week is the ideal and once a week a minimum. Get into a rhythm of posting and keep to it.
        • No imagery . Use graphics, screen shots, and photographs. Optimize image captions with target keywords.
        • No podcasts or videos . Go beyond text and images; use sound and video.
        • Too many 2,000 word essays . Most successful blog posts are short and punchy. Infrequently a longer one can give more detail.
