Chinese Weekly newspaper box in Chinatown
Have any readers ever been tempted to move their blog up a notch and try to get more hits or a wider audience by employing someone’s skills? Or by accepting advertisers or sponsors or even trying to sell a product or service of your own?
For most of us bloggers, self-promotion is an easy enough task. Linking your blog to a twitter feed, a Facebook page or a Vimeo or YouTube channel are obvious options that work well. Just as effective is being part of the City Daily Photo community. Whatever method, for me it is always about quality of readers rather than quantity.
But were I promoting a product or service I needed to get it to a mass market, (as opposed to the select market of Mancunian Wave readers), I could do worse than hire Pelican PR. They are an award-winning Manchester PR company who move in circles some of which I would approve of, such as the outdoor and recycling industries.
I do agree with their sustainable packaging campaigns, for instance WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme), promoting green packaging. See the environment section of their case studies.
