Being an expert in your solutions area, you always had the urge to share and get recognized. We all have been wanting to do this but have been constrained. Come social media revolution, we have got this new worldwide web revolution where we can share through blogs, microblogs, social network sites across the globe. This is an amazing opportunity. Hey but I have read these stuff, but not ventured into it, how can i? I have the urge of ‘I too want to become a famous blogger’ but need a guide on what to blog, where to blog, how to blog, more tips etc.
Here you go….
Where to blog:
SAP SCN community is a great starting point for blogging to wide audience, including external audience. It has solution areas under which you can post your blogs. You start off as a junior blogger and at some point you can become an expert blogger.
Sounds good, but I really want to focus on my target audience who may not be reading the blogs I post in SCN.
Just to clarify, the blog posts into SCN gets assigned to Google blogs search. So if somebody searches in google blogs with keywords, your blog is likely to be picked. Offcourse you can also choose to blog into websites where you think your target audience would visit e.g. CFO.com, SpendMatters.com etc. Other option is for you to create your own blog website e.g. http://www.blogger.com/home
