“Think human” to turn people into advocates
Share

radio

The other day, a friend and I were discussing the current state of blogging. This is what he had to say about it: “Blogging is dead, you know. I don’t understand why people are so adamant to maintain a blog. To build your brand, you need to move on to other things.”

Well, I disagree with this statement. Blogging is not dead. Actually, the same thing could be said of books, the radio, and magazines.

We focus too much on the tools and not enough on audiences and their needs.

“See, online marketing’s Holy Grail has nothing to do with exchanging digits. If you insist on getting scientific about online marketing, you need to cast aside your thin digital device and pound into your thick head that likes, RTs, endorsements, plus-ones, and pins are merely signposts—not destinations.” – Barry Feldman
