Content Marketing Is Here To Stay (Infographic)

content marketing
Most gurus will tell you this: "Content Is King" as for as internet marketing is concern and personally I am 100% agreeable with to it. Also, it will be forever true as long as we continue to consume media through the online channel especially internet. 

Of course, what would probably evolved is the format of the content as well as how we consume them. For example, with the ever increasing world-wide adoption of smartphone/tablets, more content will be customised to fit into the mobile devices like there (in the form of phone apps) for a better user experience. 

Thus, content marketing is here to stay. Having said that, for content marketing to work well, we need to ensure that the content is valuable, up-to-date and relevant to the targeted audience. As illustrated by the following infographic, content marketing starts with sufficient research followed by identification of the appropriate formats and finally choose the proper channels to release/promote them.

Let's Go Back To Basic Of Blogging [Infographic]

blogging, blogToday I am feeling a bit nostalgic and thus like to share a bit of the history of BLOG. Of course, I will not dwell with too much historical details here but just wanted to share the answers to the following two basic questions:

1. When was the term BLOG being coined and by who?

2. How is the term BLOG formed?
First, the one that responsible for the term Blog is Jorn Barger. In December 1997, he first coined the term Weblog and the term Blog was derived from the combination of these 2 words (Web + Log), which is the answer to question number 2.

Courtesy of Blogskinny, they have generated a simple yet meaningful Infographic about the history of Blogging which answer the similar questions.
