If you've spent any time reading online marketing blogs or sites like this one, you're probably either blogging or thinking about blogging. Of course you also might be wondering about more traditional online marketing options like the ever popular email newsletter. But if your time is limited, which one should you get your focus? That's the question being answered by Rich Brooks at the Flyte Blog today.
Rich admits that small business owners tend to be working on tight budgets and even tighter time constraints. Often times, this means they are forced to focus their efforts on one form of marketing.
When you take too many things on at the beginning it can seem overwhelming and nothing gets done. Unless you have a lot of time and energy to write, starting an email newsletter and a blog may be too much. (Then again, I write an email newsletter, two blogs and distribute articles for article marketing.)
So, this begs the question, which will work better for you, a blog or an email newsletter? It depends on your business model.
Rich goes on to explain what types of sites benefit the most from blogs (those with short sales cycles) and what types of sites benefit the most from email newsletters (those with long sales cycles). If you've been having this debate about your own marketing strategy, this post is certainly a good read.
