Blogs are a great way to share good news, improve engagement and most importantly they offer a more personal touch where you can truly engage with your buyers.  But how do you write a winning blog?  What should it say?  How often is too often?  In this session, Christine will give you an invaluable insight into how to write a great blog!

  • Finding and creating content, and long term planning - A series, or stand alone items?
  • The pitfalls - what to avoid;
  • The art of persuasive language - how to use rhetorical language for effect;
  • A template - choosing a winning headline, sub-headings and structure;
