This week I would like to share some of the blogs created by my students in PRT 5460/6460 Electronic Marketing. Their first assignment was to evaluate a website using AIDA (attention-interest-desire-action). The majority of the students in this class will be graduating in May 2013. If you are looking for a capable employee with knowledge of electronic marketing, then check out these blogs:
It seems that in my busy schedule of teaching, I never have sufficient time to blog. I am always writing a lecture, evaluating assignments, grading quizzes, etc. Yet I love sharing tips for effective electronic marketing with my students at the University of Utah. I discovered a great blog today (J6Design.com.au) with some basic ideas and a great infographic. Excellent timing since I need to get back into the swing of blogging in preparation for teaching social media this fall. So I will test out the suggested 8 secrets to writing faster blog posts beginning here and now!
1. Assign a time frame & deadline... & stick to it. I am going to try and blog once a week for the balance of the fall semester. . . once a week with something about electronic marketing.
2. Create a content calendar: This is an easy one if I simply follow the outline of topics covered in my electronic marketing class.
3. Keep a topic list: Sounds logical . . . again I will focus on topics I cover in my electronic marketing course at the University of Utah. So in the coming weeks there will be (hear that tone of determination as I strike those keys) blogs on Basic Web Design, Search Engine Optimization, Social media, HTML 5/CSS, The power of photography and photo editing, and Flash as a tool to capture attention and generate interest.
4. Remove all distractions. Nearly impossible since I am always multi-tasking . . . but it seems that Monday afternoon might work to close off the majority of the world. Teddy (my blind Pomeranian can sleep on my desk while I work) and I will turn off all the other sound devices to minimize distractions.
5. Start at the end. As a teacher, this is the heart of the lesson . . . the desired learning outcomes. For example, in this blog post I hope students will learn that even they can find some time to post a blog message.
6. Write don’t edit. Impossible. My fingers edit before my head even knows what is happening . . . but I will attempt to minimize the editing.
7. Keep the flow. I will do my research before beginning the draft of the post. Start with an outline and then let the magic happen.
8. You are story telling: J6Design.com.au suggests that you should read your blog out loud when you have finished drafting the blog. I do this all the time when I write my PowerPoint slides for a lecture. This is very helpful when I record my lectures for delivery online on the web. I find it is so much easier if I take the time to read it out loud a couple of times so that I can feel more conversational rather than rattling off facts for my students.
Well tune in next week to see what happens to my plan to implement this in my time plan. See you next Monday.
A recent article I found on SEOMOZ reviewed some key aspects that every blogger should consider in order to make their blogs more effective. I will highlight a few of the recommendations. Bloggers should ensure that they make every effort to avoid making these errors that will decrease the effectiveness of your blog:
Dr. Linda Ralston (alias UTourDoctor) teaches at the University of Utah in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. My blog on emarketing is designed for my students just beginning the journey of exploring the world of electronic marketing.
