That emotion can be transferred into positive feelings about a product, service or brand. Read More

What does blogging provide to small business?

Your time might be limited, but there are several reasons why putting aside a little makes a lot of sense. Blog software such as WordPress, Typepad and Blogger is easy to use. Blogging is a low-cost method for web presence. For small businesses with small marketing budgets and little or no understanding of how to create a website and coding such as html, blogging is an inexpensive way to maintain an up-to-date presence on the Internet.
