Loudoun Small Business Blogging - Multi-Author Blog & Digital Marketing Help for Loudoun Small Businesses

Need help, as a Loudoun small business, in getting started with blogging?
Join the "Made in Loudoun - Small Business Blogging Community"!





The community of Loudoun Small Business Bloggers, and our stewardship role in it, is a long and storied history....all the way back to the early 2000's - well, basically back to 2005 or so...(Check out this blast from the past - this list of Loudoun bloggers from 2011!)

As a small business in Loudoun, you may have already tried your hand at blogging and social media - Facebook's typically the easiest first route (it's really a "micro-blogging" channel) - followed then by Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Instagram, etc....Really a lot to keep on top of. This doesn't even include "paid" online advertising - i.e. banner ads, Google Adwords, Facebook promotions, classifieds, etc.

The less comfortable route for blogging is "long-form" - i.e. traditional blogging on your website, or someone else's - like Wordpress.com or Blogger. It requires a bit more thought, creativity, planning - but is ultimately the most effective form of online marketing, or "digital, inbound content marketing"!

Looking for help to get your first blog posts out there, to try it out? In a way that not only promotes your message and business, but truly "markets" it online to the surrounding, hyperlocal Loudoun or more broad Northern Virginia communities? On someone else's platform - i.e. the "training wheels" approach, with very little risk?
We're currently accepting new Loudoun small business blogger candidates - who are looking to jump into the blogging arena, with a bit of very professional, locally-experienced help. To also kickstart a renewed "Made in Loudoun" small business and startup community - that will include some great updates to this site in the coming Month...

The kind of help that's ONLY available through those who have gone before, stewards and experts at promoting Loudoun's vibrant, diverse and truly exceptional small business community via digital media.
