When the late Pak Nukman Luthfie was still alive, he often visited his blog. As an online and digital marketing expert, he shares a lot of knowledge. One of them and I still remember writing until now” Blogs Are Increasingly Influential In Consumer Purchase Decisions“. Every business or brand needs to have a marketing blog. It was made in 2008.
And what now?
What is Blog Marketing?
Blog Marketing is a business strategy using blogs to directly reach potential customers, both corporate and individual. With digital promotion it is similar to what is desired as a product or mark Customer can earn credit.
I’m brainstorming about the importance of blog marketing. Because after family and friends, blogs position themselves as the second source of information for customers before buying a product.
In fact, the interest group built on blogs gets larger, the more and more useful the information received from the blog.
The establishment of the importance of blog marketing has been confirmed by a survey conducted by Forrester Research. Not only that, Jupiter Reaseach is supported by buzzlogic to conduct deeper research on the consumption behavior of blog readers.
These are some of the reasons for the importance of blog marketing
The research results that Pak Nukman recorded at that time were as follows:
- 50% of blog readers say blogs are the right place to get product information.
Just blog visitors trust blogs as a source for making decisions more than content on social media. Maybe it’s less relevant now, but at the time the results of Facebook, Twitter and others were less effective in supporting promotions.
- The more focused the blog is, the greater its role in driving purchases. 56% of respondents say focused blogs are an important source of product information.
The influence of blogs is not only related to technology. Blog information is also important for purchasing decisions for entertainment (15%), games/toys/sports goods (14%), travel (12%), automotive (11%), health (10%), and others (30%). . Palm sugar could be included in the latest statistics.
Certainly the above facts have given me the power to think, to concentrate, and to determine Arenga Indonesia blog
This article is a follow up to a blog post that was published in 2008. Some cases are no longer relevant. So that this information is still useful to friends, I will update it according to the current situation (2022).
When reading Pak Nukman how important blog marketing is for a product or brand, something comes to mind. If the blogger only relies on the recommendation of friends or family in the consumer’s purchasing decisions, the blogger must meet certain requirements.
In 2008, 85% of Arenga’s customers with organic Palm Sugar products came not from the internet but through the traditional market. This means knocking on the door before ordering. Although at the time, people were impressed with palm sugar, ant sugar and organic sugar, they always appeared on the first page of Google.
I also don’t know if the research results will be the same if the Indonesian market is the object. In 2008 the internet was indeed cheap, but not too cheap for all Indonesian people. Apart from that, it seems that even if they are financially capable, not all Indonesians are thoroughly literate. I have several friends who only know the email by name.
So in 2008 I realized that the search was only suitable for non-corporate retailers like Arenga at that time.
