March 2010 Newsletter

 


What an exciting time for BLI Messaging! While many businesses have had a tough year, we continue to grow. In the last year we have increased our staffing significantly. We’ve brought on some great new innovative thinkers and we are confident they will be instrumental in bringing both our business and yours to the next level. Our success demonstrates that businesses recognize the benefits of an effective marketing program, especially in less than favorable economic conditions.

We have been hard at work getting the word out about our School Announcement platform. School Announcement is an alert messaging system that is quickly becoming popular with the K-12 audience.

Our low pricing includes unlimited use, so School Announcement is ideal for any kind of message a school may need to send to parents, teachers and students – school closings, field trips, progress reports, early dismissals, fundraising initiatives and more. We hope the beginning of your year has been going well and that March brings you more business and warmer weather!


Best wishes,

Sarah Hodkinson
Director of Marketing


Top 5 SEO Marketing Tips


Optimizing your website for search engines can be a very daunting, overwhelming task…if you don’t know what you’re doing. These five easy steps will put things into perspective and help you organize your time.

1. Set a Goal – Before you dive head-first into these efforts, make a plan for what you want to accomplish.

2. Add a Blog – Having a blog as your main SEO priority can help drive traffic to your site. Blogging is a commitment, but it adds credibility to your company.

3. Produce Valuable Content - Some businesses are so concerned with loading their content full of keywords that they forget to write something their clients actually want to read! The more useful and valuable the content, the more likely it is that others will link to your site.

4. Use Free Resources – The Internet has a ton of free resources and tools related to web marketing – Google Analytics, SEO Centro, Twitter and more…

5. Establish Relationships – Through Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others, you can create relationships with similar companies in your field, influential journalists and public relations professionals, and people who are interested in your company.
