So the last week or so I've been out of my home town (hence the quietness). I been on business, something new I've started up,and boy marketing is a whole different world when you need to sell something.
But whether its selling cars or blogging, marketing is a universal voice that has to be done. Advertising is a form of marketing and after you try one style of marketing, you can start seeing the difference when you change a few things here and there.
Hand to hand marketing lets you deal with your clients personally and these are a tough bunch to please. What one wants, the other does not. Being able to be flexible to serve everyone IS a must if you want to be successful.
My marketing isnt over in Gauteng. I'll still be here a few days. I miss my blogging and I miss my readers. But I will be back. (in this meantime, I'm also conducting a bit of research and will have the stats ready in a few days time for you all as to why marketing is essential.) Enjoy...:-)
Does it ever happen to you that the thing you're searching for is never the thing you find, except that you find something else instead?
Yep, me too.
Today I was searching for ways to intergrate my Blog and Facebook together (as in putting my feed address somewhere where Facebook has since disabled probably from 2012). Then reading some Google searches I remembered seeing something I saw on some very well laid out Blogs. It made me think of just how well is your Blogs reach?

So I spent my weekend with my fiance, Virginia, and in-laws at their home some distance out of town. It was nice to get out of town for a while and relax where it's quiet and spend time with my two little boys, away from the hustle and bustle of town life.
What do you do to get it right? Well it happened to me, and I'll tell you the simple answer to it below.

Without further ado, read on.
I remember back in the day when Big Brother first screened on public t.v, how every one was fascinated by it. I mean who doesn't like to see what happens to people locked up in the house for 90 days with the camera's rolling 24/7. Who doesn't like to see what goes bump in the night? Remember Bad Brad?
We all know that man is "programmed" to make mistakes and some mistakes result in failure to accomplish a set of given requirements or needs of others. But man is ALSO capable of learning from these mistakes and using these learning curves to better himself for himself and others around him. It's from these learnings that we don't swing in trees anymore, or don't stay in caves as well.
When maintaining certain areas of our lives, we tend to search for alternative methods, which may be a shortcut, or it may be a way we can adapt to doing things easier.
However we define it, it boils down to adaptability, how easy the methods we choose work for us. What works for me, probably may not work for you.
Upon searching my Androids Play Store, I came across a nifty app called Blogaway. Reading the users reviews gave a good impression on the app, and I'm sure the 100 000+ people that downloaded it already can't be wrong.
So as I sit back and relax, comfortably typing this article out (and testing it for the first time,and away from the laptop) I'll be getting a first hand opinion of this app. Will it work? It seems risky writing an article live without testing it with a back up near by. But that's the thrill of being able to test a product that helps publishers in the long run. That's the aim of Impressions. Building trust.
So although this article may appear short, it serves as a test of the app for me, and at the same time it'l give me an opportunity to sit back, look at the results, and give the feedback at a later stage.
As a quick question, what app, if any, do you use on your mobile to publish posts? Does it give you the same functionality as a laptop does?
Update 26/May/2013 Blogaway is a fantastic app that gets the job done extremely well. It does not crash, nor freeze. The only down size is that my Samsung Galaxy Pocket screen size is a bit small to utilize the full functionality of the app. Will I use it always? Yes Sir! Have a fantastic Sunday!!!
