The optimized blog post that drives social media content and serves as a basis for specially targeted e-newsletter: Marketing and communicating on the Internet is about rallying tribes. Whether the tribes are Facebook likes or Twitter followers, they must be reached and moved to act.

With unlimited information available at the stroke of keyboard or a swipe of the tablet or smartphone, your words must cut through the clutter. To remain competitive in an online realm where SEO has levelled the playing field, constant streams of content are required to improve page rankings.

If this content is rich and read and linked to, then it will be effective, whether it is social media post, a B2B website or a marketing e-blast.
