Allow me to ask you a simple question. Have you ever thought about death? Go ahead, take a moment and really think about it. Picture yourself laying on a hospital bed, knowing that you only have a few more days to live. Just imagine that feeling.
Overwhelming can’t even describe it. And to be perfectly honest, I can’t really pinpoint the perfect word to discribe it myself. Without getting into religion and personal dogma, I think it’s fair to conclude that death might be the biggest fear humans have. The only problem is that you cannot run away from this fear. Sooner of later you will have to face it.
Many people say, “Why would I waste my valuable time thinking about death?” That’s a great point. However, facing it now and living you life to the fullest will enable you to thrive while you’re living on this planet. While you’re laying on the death bed, you brain will start playing the beautiful memories you’ve gathered in this life. Right after the heartwarming memories, your regrets will follow.

Nowadays, doesn’t it seem like there are just too many blog consultants out there? Have you already started your blog using WordPress or Blogger? Many bloggers start out in the fast lane, very excited about their blogs. Unfortunately, even more run out of gas before they even finish the race.
You can actually avoid having a business blog that simply fizzles out. All you need is a clear understanding of the reasons bloggers fail. So, here are 5 reasons why many business blogs fail.
1. Not Defining Your Objectives
It’s amazing how many company’s have their blogs set up by their IT team, without ever defining the key objectives. Then, weeks later, everyone’s wondering why the blog isn’t getting traffic.
Is your goal to connect with your customers? Is your blog part of an SEO program to archive FAQs, newsletters, etc…? You must identify your main objectives for blogging. Then, create your promotion and content plans based on these goals.
2. Having Unrealistic Resources And Expectations
It takes dedication and hard work to blog effectively. Business blogs showcase your company’s personality, while listening and responding to your online community. It takes much more than great SEO keywords to raise your search engine rankings.
In order for your business blog to be successful, you’ll need access to resources, such as technology, processes and people. Set both long and short term goals, and track your accomplishments using reporting systems like Google Webmaster. Allocate various tasks and make sure everyone’s doing their part. Plan for your business blogging success.
Marketing, just like most other business strategies, is progressively developing along with technology. As technology develops, new modes of mass communication evolve and subsequently improve marketing. As a result, businesses are increasingly leveraging digital marketing at the cost of past marketing methods like print marketing.
Although print marketing is viewed by some businesses as a thing of the past, a significant number of marketers are still using it to reach their target audience. Some of them have adopted it while others have continuously reported dreary results. Consequently, most business owners are left questioning the overall effectually of this marketing method compared to other strategies.
Just like any other marketing strategy, print marketing has its benefits and disadvantages. Its effectiveness principally depends on how you employ it, your target market and the overall marketing goals. For instance, a business can transcendentally employ print marketing to reach out to the local audience. However, when it comes to the global audience, it is advisable to explore digital marketing methods.
The Importance of Tangibility
The chief benefit of print marketing is tangibility. In digital marketing, the target audience only gets a soft copy of the marketing message on their digital devices. That means it can be easily and promptly ignored, since most digital device users only pay attention to other elements in their devices.
Print media on the other hand, is not as easily ignorable as digital media. Being tangible means that the writing is permanent. It cannot be obliterated or moved to the ‘trash’ folder. In fact, people always tend to pay more attention to hardcopy content compared to softcopy content.
Reaching the Elderly
Print marketing is also effective in expanding the target market. Although the internet is currently the single biggest platform for global convergence, not all types of people can be reached through it. The old age target market, for example, prefers sticking to the conventional mass communication methods like newspapers and magazines. To market to such a group therefore, one should leverage newspaper and magazine advertising as opposed to online marketing.
