I Like Blogdash, The Blogger Outreach Dashboard
An explanation for why I have that opinion may be difficult to voice, but my best effort will be made. Be patient, please, as I get to the point.
Have you noticed that Marketers have become a targeted audience for other Marketers? That audience has now expanded to include Marketers using Social Media Platforms as their campaign headquarters.
Traditionally, the word ‘media’ could be interpreted as a list of news and information-providing sources: Newspapers, Magazines, Television, Radio, etc. Today, ‘everybody’ is ‘media’.
We Are All ‘Media’
We’re all issuing news and information about something … about everything from crochet to child care to health preservation to the cost of gasoline and on and on it goes. No subject goes untouched because, worldwide, there are people who are interested in a subject that’s being talked about by the ‘media’ … us.
Marketers who have been around for a while have learned the searching techniques to use in order to find a target market. New, or inexperienced marketers, have not yet learned that time-consuming and necessary task.
Many, so called marketers, are known to by-pass the search and verification portion of choosing a targeted market. They simply throw their information to the wind and hope it lands somewhere to take root.
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind these days that blogging is ‘where it’s at’ as far as creating a web home, becoming known, becoming liked and becoming trusted. The problem for bloggers who do not yet have an audience is how and where to get one.
Enter Blogdash, The Blogger Outreach Dashboard
The largest contribution made to a blogger, through Blogdash, is the tools with which to search for, locate, and communicate with other bloggers interested in similar topics.
The About page goes into detail as to why and how this service is provided.
The FAQ page is elegantly simple with lots of white space and no clutter. It’s easy to locate the topic for which more information is needed and there is a free, downloadable, Guide. How sweet can it get?
Just as I thought I’d explored all the great things offered by this site, I noticed an icon in the upper right corner of the page inviting me to watch a demo. It was a pleasant surprise, when upon clicking that icon, a page opened up with, not one, but 12 how-to-do-it videos.
There was only two items with which I had some slight difficulty. It has to do with the navigation of the site.
To get back to home page, one needs to know to click on the logo located at the top left. To sign in or to register, one needs to locate a rather small box located on the header’s right side on the home page. I have to think that some small adjustments here would make the site more user friendly.
I think that this group of marketers are providing a tool for other marketers. Blogdash’s All-In-One Blogger Outreach Software, I think, is a tool that fills a need.
I think that the use of this tool will be a blessing to those who are pushed for time and know-how in the area of search.
So, yes, I can, and do, recommend Blogdash to new, or inexperienced, social marketers. I’d suggest that it be used, both as intended and as a learning tool so that eventually, this work can be done independently by the search-challenged marketer.
About Dorothy Allen
I'm Dorothy Allen from the Jackson, Mississippi area and I find both pleasure and profit in social networking using my site, http://www.dorothy-allen.com as the hub for Dorothy Allen - The Maven Of Social Influence. Thanks to a rather insistent mentor, I've done a little of everything online. That includes building niche sites, writing e-books, struggling with 'The List' and the two biggies ... learning to appreciate the art of Search Engine Optimization and the intricacies within the Social Media platforms. My personal priorities include (1) family (one never out-grows the Mom thing) (2) discovering and developing new projects for the Internet that are beneficial to people and to the world in general. I am self employed from home as a writer, blogger, and a designer of social media influence strategy. I work with individuals and businesses to increase their popularity through blogging and participation in the many social media platforms. I write short stories as a personal enjoyment and contribute content to websites upon request. My newly established blog home is Dorothy Allen - The Maven of Social Influence, http://dorothy-allen.com where both theory and strategies for social media influence is discussed as it pertains to individuals and to businesses. While away from the computer, I read, explore back country roads, and entertain drop-in friends and neighbors. People watching is also a favorite activity whenever the opportunity presents itself.
