ASU lecture: Why Your Business Needs a Blog

Wed., Feb. 20

"Why Your Business Needs a Blog"

Presented by Dave Barnhart

* Have you heard of blogs and wonder what they are all about?
* Are you wondering if a blog could help your business?
* Do you want to be known as an authority in your field?
* Do you want to leverage the most cost-effective means
for boosting your business' image, exposure, and revenue?

Blogging has evolved into a cutting-edge marketing tool that
is immediate, personal, and engaging. Blogging can boost your
image, exposure, reputation, and revenue. Best of all, blogging
is within the financial reach of everyone. Done well, a small
company or organization can achieve results that large firms with
millions of dollars to spend on marketing would be hard-pressed
to achieve.

Blogging expert Dave Barnhart will help you learn what a blog
is, how they work, why they are so effective and how you can
get started.
