This is a guest post by Felix Albutra who is Blogging For Profit.
There many blog authors arguing which blogging method is king. Some says Content is the King and some says Marketing is the King.
For you, which is king? This post will express my opinion regarding these two successful blogging techniques.
Is Content a King?
As many other successful blogging gurus teach you, Content is the king of all methods to be successful on blogging business or internet marketing. Creating quality contents to your blog is indeed one of the best ways to drive traffic to your blog. Meaning, content is considered as the flesh of your blog while traffic is its blood. Having these two elements, would let stay alive on the blogosphere (the world of blogs).
Is having content on your blog enough to be successful in online business? There are many great articles I had read but they are not gaining much traffic. In other words, those quality articles didn’t receive good rewards from search engine to earn free traffic. In which the author end up to discouragement and abandoned their blogs because they haven’t earn money from it if they were willing to. It’s sad to say. Would you let it happen to you? I guest you won’t. What should you do?
Huh! Marketing is the King?
A blogger had already revealed his secret why marketing is the king and not the content. The first time I had read this article, I was convinced that I think he is right from the examples he had shown. But then I realized that marketing blogs without quality contents is like selling a rotten meat in the market. Who would try to revisit your blog if you don’t have the quality information which your readers need?
Content vs. Marketing
Upon balancing these two great strategies, I figured out that these two strategies must have in your blogging and internet marketing activities in order to succeed online. After creating quality content for your blog, you must apply the marketing processes you knew to gather readers or viewers all you have to do is to market that content to gather readers or viewers on it.
It’s not enough that you all have the quality contents on your blog where no one is reading or viewing on it, right? Because it only consumes your efforts and time without receiving profit reward from it.
