Sound like too much effort?

Look at it this way. If you write a blog, or plan to, you have content other people crave. You are ahead of the game. Content is where the market is moving. Content means expertise. Having content means you can promote yourself more effectively as expert across traditional and new social networks as well as in other offline channels.

Positioning yourself as competent, credible and approachable gives you the best chance of business success as a trusted and valued partner.

So when you look at it like that, what are you waiting for?
