Welcome to visitors from the Business Times “’Burgh Bloggers” promotion.

October 30 2012

Welcome to others, too!  We actually have two blogs right here on our Randy Strothman & Associates website:  this ‘Marketing Blog’ and a ‘Client News’ blog.

In addition, we blog for an upscale, award-winning remodeling contractor.  In both cases, blogging is part of a multi-faceted marketing strategy, of which Internet Marketing is a critical piece.

In this post, we offer you a short sampler of our most popular posts with marketing insights, tips and research going back 3 years.

First, here’s our most recent blog postSecond thoughts about Facebook marketing: A disturbing trend? (Oct 2012).  Notice that it seems to refute one of the most popular, older blogs below.  Also, notice that our posts tend to be longer, more detailed and more visual than many.  Some serve as links in press releases. That’s our style.

Second, here’s our most popular post:  Today’s technology revolution for marketing businesses (Dec 2009).  But in some ways it doesn’t really count like the others here… because the word ‘Avatar’ attracted the wrong people to it.

Now, lets look at ones that were visited by many AND the people stayed for a reasonable time reading.  We would call that the true measure of popularity.
