Setting Up a Word Press Blog

Whether you are launching a new business brokering notes and cash flows or starting a handyman business, having your own blog can be one of the most powerful marketing tools at your disposal.  Blogs can be used to exemplify your expertise with prospective clients or simply to assist in the relationship building process with sources of referral. 

Blogs:  Essential for All Entrepreneurs

At DataMax, we view blogs as an almost essential component to successful marketing and this is especially true for mobile creatives and new entrepreneurs.  Blogs can dramatically enhance the effectiveness of newsletters and standard email marketing methods and in some instances, may replace both.  They provide a method of sharing your expertise by posting interesting business content but also allow you share your personal thoughts and ideas.  They are powerful add-ons for anyone with a business website and can be used to dramatically increase your website visitors.

Monetizing Your Blog

Because DataMax WordPress blogs exist in their own domain, they can be monetized.  This means blogs can not only pay for themselves but also provide sizable income through advertising if successful.
