Using fun or interesting imagery, word art and typographic designs to illustrate a little nugget of information is an easy way to put across a point and have people pay attention to it. Everyone likes a pretty picture, so why are you not putting them to work in conjunction with your business blog?

How can we have a business blog if we have nothing to say?” is a question this content marketing agency tends to deflect on a regular basis. And our answer, invariably, is to start thinking creatively.

Now we appreciate that you may not have 1000 words of wisdom or invigorating comment ready to publish twice a week every week. And just between you and I, sometimes nor do we!

Microblogging can come in many forms amenable to social media marketing.

Twitter is a microblog, but we’ve opted for the meme (which I believe is pronounced ‘meam’ though someone led me into serious self-doubt by pronouncing it ‘meh-meh’ the other day).
