making marketing automation look natural

I'm not going to get into the debate about whether or not you should use marketing automation tools, a virtual assistant, or grind the old fashioned way. The reality is that marketing automation technologies are key to any business today from selling staplers to promoting blog posts and building more connections within your industry. The challenge that I find though is that all too often people don't know how to use the tools and simply assume that they are a way to "cheat" and jump ahead of the line on their way to fame and fortune. Let's take a look at how to use marketing automation tools so the result looks as natural as possible!

While we do our own campaigns, this organization likes to play friendly with other blogger networks. One of the most frequent questions that I get asked is "how do you get all those cool opportunities?" I've been fortunate that my background was in doing influencer relations for a variety of big brands prior to becoming a full-time blogger and so I built up a good network of people who have helped me out. The following is a list of my favorite blogger networks that work with male influencers.

I've been a "blogger" for more than 20 years. My first blogs began as video game sites back in the mid 1990's. Back then, anyone who published content online and wasn't part of a corporate media organization was simply referred to as a blogger. Today though, the landscape is MUCH MORE COMPLEX. Despite this, terms like "blogger" and "influencer" are used interchangeably. I'm guilty of not using these terms distinctly as well and in part that's because some bloggers are influencers too. This is either through sheer scale of their reach or that they focus on their expertise and personality more than sharing news and other content provided to them. Over the past year I've started to see not just the clear lines of differentiation, but also the impact that these two types of content creators can produce ... as well as the marketing impact. Let's take a look at the difference between engaging with influencers and bloggers.

One of the things about blogging is that we consume a lot of power. Most of us travel with multiple phones and/or tablets, a laptop, and a camera. Sometimes we even have a drone or other device that needs an AC port to charge up. That's why I absolutely LOVE the Novoo AC Power Bank from Omars Electronics. Featuring a whopping 20,100 mAh battery capacity, it not only has a USB-A charger with QuickCharge 3.0 but a USB-C port and a 60 watt AC port too! We pulled together some of our favorite male bloggers and gave them a chance to check it out too and now we're giving you a chance to win one as well.
