BLOGGING FOR SUCCESS

Goals must be clearly identified and shared within your team. Every single activity in the blogging process must always refer to those goals. Attendees will learn how to define their goals and which are the most effective strategies to put in place. How to define an editorial calendar, how to organize an editorial team, how to leverage seasonality’s and trends, are just a few examples of what you will be able to master.

How to make sure we are achieving the initial goals we identified? Is there something to improve or it’s just a question of time? Is the audience getting engaged in the right way? It’s impossible to answer these questions without a basic understanding of all the measurement metrics and tools available. During this part of the workshop the attendees will be able to understand how to measure every single detail of their blogging activity, and optimize the efforts to reach your goals.

Luca Sartoni, Blogger & Communications Specialist, Luca Sartoni
