Where there’s little space and little money for redeveloping urban areas, pocket parks provide a welcome solution. Small green areas with benches for sitting and swings and slides for kids, pocket parks help unify as well as beautify neighborhoods. These mini-parks are part of the Central Indiana Community Foundation’s Keep Indianapolis Beautiful initiative, a wonderful example of making a little money go a long way.
My small business and professional practice ghost blogging clients are in something of the same boat, trying hard to do smart marketing on a limited budget. Most owners enter the web world by having a site designed for their business or practice. The website may be attractive and easy to navigate. Still their “park” is not accessible to new customers and clients who don’t know it’s there! That’s where business blogs come in, and where I, as a professional ghost blogger, enter the “neighborhood”.
Blogs are like pocket parks, much easier and much less expensive to create and then constantly redevelop. People find your “pocket park” blog, not because they know the name of the company or even your own name, but because your blog content is organized around specific key words and topics. People find the blog “right in their own neighborhood”, exactly when they need it.
There is no practical way a website can change its title and its content every day or even every couple of days to match different key words searchers use. Blogs, small and nimble, can readily adapt. Since, by definition, blogs are providing new thoughts and new information with every entry, your “pocket park” is right there, informing the potential customer or client that you have the know-how – or the products – she’s seeking.
Eagle Creek Park offers far more amenities than the School 46 Pocket Park, to be sure. But if you’re far away from the big reservoir, the little park bench under a tree in the pocket park is where you’ll sit for a spell. Ideally, business blogging is just one piece of a multi-faceted business marketing and advertising plan. But budget-conscious owners will find blogging delivers a lot of park bench for the buck!
