5 Effective Content-Marketing Principles to Drive Your Business to the Zenith

Image
Lee Odden a marketing expert states that “ Content marketing isn’t just about adding content; it’s about creating information for a target audience that has a particular purpose and intended outcome. Content drives awareness, but also social interaction, customer engagement and sales. ” This shows that having a great content is not really what content marketing is, it goes to show that content creation is actually a subset of content marketing i.e. it is a division of it. Using the analogy of the human body-the human body is made up of different parts some of which includes the head, the chest, the hands and the legs. These different parts cannot function on their own but as a whole. The above analogy is relevant in content marketing where content creation without a target audience is like trying to catch a fish without the right bait. This is why the posting of a health article on a technological blog will not elicit the type of comment we desire.

From Sexual Abuse to Avenues to Wealth

Image
One area my mum focused on while growing up was protection of her children from sexual abuse. As a mother, she strove to juggle her diverse responsibilities with that of the home front.And that is what made her unique. Her innate ability to multitask is legendary-from breast feeding to managing people, she strove to manage her time. It is this struggle that has sometimes led to mothers being unable to take proper care of their homes, leading to that which they dread-sexual abuse. How then do they balance/ manage their time in such a way that the home front does not suffer as well as being able to speak of self fulfillment in terms of imparting on people lives?- the dominant reason for which were sent to this world.

The reason I say this, is because there are opportunities for mothers’ to work from the comfort of their homes and make money. This opp

Three things You Must do to Start a Business Today Not Tomorrow

courtesy www.dripple.com.ng , “There are three qualities that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and the burning desires to achieve it.” Napoleon Hill The following statement has been paraphrased by me. While Napoleon Hill says “one”; I am saying “three” Knowing your God’s given purpose is not an easy job, it requires prayers and insight. However your not having a clear cut purpose in life should not stop you from starting a business. This is because we have been sent by God to dominate the earth. How We Can Start a Business Without a Clear Cut Purpose. To start a business even if we are yet to define our purpose may seem an odious task, however it is not at all impossibility. The first step: 1. Having Desire or Passion Desire or passion is the first ingredient for a successful business. I say this because most of the times many people engage in business just because they have a friend who is

How to make $50000 between now and January 2013: The Challenge.gov challenge

Life is about making impact; it’s about making changes in a changing world. Being a change agent takes lots of determination. Sometimes it requires sacrificing our time in order to make our world a better place. In other times it requires suffering disdain and mockery all in order to achieve life goals. Making this impact can both be negative and positive. So what then is your inherent desire? Is it to make our world a better place or to place your name in the sands of time in the mould of Al Capone? This is something you and I need to think about. I ask this question because I wonder the extent of man’s inhumanity to man-all in the devilish quest to acquire money to the detriment of others comfort.

Why did Kasuwa change to Jumia

Image
, Taking cognissance of the fact that from an oblivious stat on Alexa ranking it jumped to the position of being 24 th on the top 500 most visited sites in Nigeria- one wonders why Kasuwa.com now Jumia would decide to change its name. So my likely proposition is that jumia- a company based in Egypt most have bought over Kasuwa.com Why Changing the Name Does not Appear to Make Sense Re-branding the name of an organization on the top lather of Google search is quite an expensive business because taking the new name to the pre-existing height in a short possible time can be very difficult. This is because it requires lots of money as per advert. However am sure the new owners must be up to the task.
