Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Sun, Apr 08, 2012 @ 08:19 PM

Business Blogging—Being Current, Receiving Comments, Getting Found

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 @ 07:28 PM

Social media has come to mean an array of activities from your website to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and beyond. But the foundation of all social media is your website and your blog.

With the infinitely vast ways your website can stand out which you can do yourself or spend anywhere from a small amount of money to the big bucks, there is no excuse to not to have the best website you can afford. WordPress is the going concern for the bottom layer of the site. On top of a basic WordPress foundation, you can add different skins that will change the look without changing the computer language at the foundation.

Furthermore, when the foundation gets a makeover, you can safely download the new version without losing what is on the skin above. This way you can keep up with the latest and greatest improvements.

Spreading Your Blog With OnlyWire

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Tue, Mar 13, 2012 @ 07:58 PM

We have been working on the idea of doing your social media work yourself. I have been telling you uncompromising truths about the process of successfully marketing yourself. These things are what marketing companies like BroadVision Marketing do for companies who don’t have the time, the resources or the desire to do-it-yourself.


The last blog I wrote we were talking about a simple system to tell if you are moving into a better ranking. We decided to use the Alexa number system, which for all its faults does provide a simple measurement of motion.

Expanding Your Blog's Reach

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Sun, Mar 11, 2012 @ 08:34 PM



I thought I was finished with the idea of do it yourself social media work, but apparently I am not. There are some other things that you need to know to find yourself on the top page of many search engines.


Last week we totaled up the amount of time you could take doing social media marketing, without LinkedIn and some other places. We saw how you could spend over half of a 40-hour work week. If you were worth $30 an hour, it would have cost you $2888.00 a month to pay yourself. Your time and your worth are your value added when you do it yourself.

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Thu, Mar 08, 2012 @ 06:24 PM


I am going to go deep now into the world of Business Social Media Managing for those of you who want to do it yourself.


We have already decided that to write 3 business blogs a week will take approximately 6 hours of your time for a monthly total of 24 hours. Hypothetically speaking if your time is worth $30 an hour, blogging for yourself could cost you $720 a month.

Business Social Media Management on a Budget

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Tue, Mar 06, 2012 @ 06:49 PM



I am still on a kick about what it really costs to work on your social media marketing. We are assuming right here that you are going to do all the work on your social media yourself rather than have someone in your office or having an external marketing firm do this for you.

We have determined that writing your blog yourself, if you are worth $30 an hour, is going to cost you $720 a month with a time cost of around 24 hours.

Fishing for Clients

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Thu, Mar 01, 2012 @ 06:17 PM

Have you ever gone fishing and taken several poles?  Business blogging and other platforms like Facebook and Twitter are like having several poles in the water to hook a client into coming to your website and using your products or services. These platforms are not hard sell platforms. People won’t come visit you if all you do is bombard them with why they need your product or service. They want to learn something or be entertained. What you tell them is the bait on your hook.
