San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2006
The expert blogging team of Patsi Krakoff and Denise Wakeman, also known as the Blog Squad™, has completed their 2nd year of business blogging. To celebrate, they are giving away a trip to Tom Antion’s Great Internet Marketing Retreat in Virginia Beach, computer luggage, and other prizes to subscribers of their ezine Savvy eBiz Tips.
“During the two years since we started our first blogs at http://www.coachezines.com and http://www.biztipsblog.com, we have seen an explosion in the numbers of professional business blogs,” says Wakeman. “They are truly one of the most effective Internet marketing tools we’ve seen in ten years of doing business online.”
The Blog Squad is celebrating by giving away prizes along with special discounts on products and services. From September 4 to 8, people can enter The Blog Squad Anniversary contest by signing up for their weekly ezine, Savvy e-Biz Tips.
“All readers have to do is sign up at http://www.savvyebiztips.com, and they are entered in the contest,” explains Wakeman. “Not only will they get weekly tips on how to grow their business on and offline, but also a chance to win one of our multiple anniversary prizes.”
Other prizes include ebooks on blog makeovers, ezine publishing, and lifetime membership access to Conversations with Experts audio programs. But the grand prize is the opportunity to attend a marketing retreat with Tom Antion, multi-millionaire Internet guru, at his Great Internet Marketing Retreat in Virginia Beach. The four-day event is valued at $5000.
“As The Blog Squad, we help entrepreneurs and small businesses set up and optimize blogs for business success,” says Krakoff. “Blogs are powerful marketing tools because of their interactivity with readers, allowing a conversation with customers and creating credibility and trust. But it’s not like personal blogging, and unless professionals know how to optimize a blog for business, they may be creating more work for themselves without getting results.”
Although blogs have been familiar to technophiles for several years, they became popular with the general public with the advent of user-friendly software in 2004. Programs such as WordPress and Typepad encourage the proliferation of blogs: there are more than 72 million blogs set up on the Internet world-wide.
The Blog Squad offers a range of consulting services to authors, speakers and consultants on how to harness the power of the Internet through blogs, newsletters and ecommerce tools.
“Our mission is to help professionals attract and connect with clients through simple online tools, to make their marketing effortless, and for them to make more profits,” added Patsi Krakoff, who is a psychologist turned consultant.
