I wanted to do something special and different for this post, and two things brought their aloha forces together to give me this idea.
“Business blogs are powerful tools for any business to adopt.
Whether the company is a traditional bricks and mortar business, an online business venture, or both, a business blog can pay dividend for any business bottom line.
The benefits are numerous, ranging from improved search engine rankings, to better customer relations, to more effective public relations, to ever more powerful marketing. Blogging succeeds in all of these areas.
We all know that to be true.
What we need to do now, is spread the word.
As bloggers, we need to become missionaries for the concept of business blogging.”
If you are a business person, you must read Wayne’s entire post. As I read it, a voice kept asking in my head, “Hey Ms. Businesswoman, you know he’s right, so who’s the last person you talked story with about it?”
And so I thought – hey, why not? I know I’m going to renew my own subscription, so why not give the other one away to someone itching to start a business blog for themselves? And if you know TypePad’s offerings, you know that the very basic program gives you the ability to set up 3 different blogs, so you could do a personal one too, and still have another left over for a link blog, or a community page, or a second business blog!
So hear ye, hear ye all you business owners: to celebrate this, my own 100th post, I’m giving away the one-year gift subscription I will receive with my TypePad renewal.
My only caveat is this: one of the 3 that comes with the program must be a Business Blog, and I will do your unveiling here on Talking Story when you are set up and ready to roll.
If you want my invitation, send me an email telling me how you ho‘ohana, i.e. how you work with passion and intent in your business, and second, how you will ‘imi ola – seek your best possible life in business, with a blog.
I do have one more request: I’d like you, the business owner, to be the blog author.
The deadline for your email will be this Saturday night, January 8th at midnight Hawaii Pacific time. (not July… thanks Todd!) How will I select the winner? Take your cue from my mantra: Ho‘ohana with us, (work with passion and intention), as we manage with Aloha.
How much fun is this?
