Blogging when coupled with social media is excellent for driving businesses. For example, if you have a blog site that links back to a company web site, you might join Twitter and gain a following of people there. In theory, if you build meaningful relationships with these people on Twitter, they’ll notice that you have a blog linked on your Twitter profile and click on it. At first glance, if they like what they see/read on your blog, then that might lead them to your company web page where they may or may not do business with you. See the personal intrest pattern now?

I recently bought several tubes of the most popular brand of stretch mark cream as a gift for my cousin who is expecting her first child. Although, my cousin is pretty well-off I know that she wouldn’t spend a single dime on something that she believes is purely superficial. I know that she is making a mistake by not taking precautionary measure against stretch marks that’s why I decided that I will just be her supplier. I also put a note on how and when she should apply it and some tips to prevent stretch mark cream disasters like being spilled or dried up. She may be a future mom but she still needs someone to take care of her.
