Greetings to BDNT visitors!
This won't be a long or glamorous post, just one to welcome those who are visiting because Blogmutt is presenting at the Boulder Denver New Tech Meetup tonight. (I've been coming for a while, and you can actually kind of see me sitting next to Brad Feld in the background photo for that site, but Josh Churlik's big head is right in front of mine.)
As I tweeted from my personal account earlier, this is an opportunity to donate blood! (The BDNT crowd, and the incomparable Robert Reich, make a point of showering affection on startups the way the Lions had affection for the Christians.)
But it's all in good fun and the BDNT crowd is certainly part of the ecosystem in Boulder that lives and breathes startups.
Luckily there's not much pressure, it's not like Brad Feld is going to show up and make a major announcement or anything.
I'm sure that some of the attendees will ask questions about some of these topics, and in case I don't get to answer them there, here are some of the answers about our blog writing service:
Do the writers really like it? All I can tell you is that we have dozens of them, and they keep coming back and more apply every single day and we aren't advertising for them at all. (If interested, check out this page.)
Can we really get big, fast? The answer to that question is easy when you think about these couple of points:
- Blogging is crucial, all the experts say so. One says it's worth $500 per post, another says the ROI of blogging is 179 percent if you have staff do it. With Blogmutt the ROI is that much higher.
- Content is now, and ever will be, the king.
- Blogging is hard. How many times have you looked at, and not been able to finish, a to-do list with "write a post" on it?
- There are at least 10 million businesses doing business in the US -- even though many are from overseas -- and they all need to blog. We don't need to get 50 percent of the market to become huge.
So, thanks to BDNT for inviting us to present, and if you have comments you can leave them below, or just contact me directly. Thanks!
