What is Hybrid Blogging?

When you promote your business, it is imperative to set yourself apart from the competition. Developing an effective marketing strategy is vital to the success of your business, and doing something different will help increase interest in your company and improve the likelihood of conversions. 

There are many different ways that you can promote your business, and it can be difficult to know where to start.  Working with a skilled marketing partner can help you use all your outlets efficiently and direct you in different ways that will set you apart from your competition. One way to do this is with a term coined by Virteom — hybrid blogging.

What is Hybrid Blogging?

Blogs are essential for today’s businesses. If you think about it, majority of the pages you land on after Googling something is a blog. If you're a current Virteom customer, then you've probably heard CEO Dan Carbone talk about blogs and SEO in terms of frogs and lily pads. (You know, he gives you his whole spiel to think of your website visitors as frogs on a pond — if you have a ton of pages out there, or lily pads, and are constantly adding new ones, and your competitors are not - where is the frog most likely to land? Your website!)

For blogs to be useful, they need to be kept up to date and interesting. One way to keep a blog interesting and keep readers coming back for more is by incorporating videos into them. By combining blogs and videos, you can gain people’s attention, increase conversions and set yourself apart from your completion. If you do not know how to get going with this process on your own, you can work with the experts at Virteom. 

Why Use Hybrid Blogging?

When you use hybrid blogging as part of your marketing strategy, people will more easily identify with you and see that there is a real person behind the business. 

Another benefit of hybrid blogging is that you get to dictate the message. If you're working with external marketing firms on your blog -- it's possible they don't align exactly with your content strategy guide. It's also possible that you've had some unfavorable publicity -- this gives you the opportunity to get in front of the camera and address it.

Big Tips for Ranking Number 1 with Search Engines

February 22, 2019 Category: Hybrid Blogs, SEO

Ranking number 1? Is there such a thing as ranking number 1 on search engines anymore? In the good old days search engines had no way to identify you as an individual so we all saw the same results when we searched for things. Nowadays there is no such thing as ranking number 1. Search engine results are now profiled by the individual. Around when search engines started offering free services like email and smartphone operating systems, they started tracking what you searched for on the internet. This allowed the search engines to start to identify you as an individual. Thats when ranking number 1 on search engines died. For example, if I search for the word candy on the internet my results may show chocolate bars, while yours may show sweet sugar-based candy. Now my example may be extreme, but I hope its driving the point home that search engine users are profiled and what shows up as number 1 in your search results may not be the same for everyone. how do I rank number 1?
