A to Z Challenge - Day 7: G is for Group!

I'm participating the this crazy challenge on 2 of my blogs. This one and Paranormal Lounge. The A to Z Challenge is a blogging event that takes place every April. The challenge is to write a post for each letter of the alphabet and post nearly every day during April, omitting Sundays.

My theme for this challenge is: Marketing is like war. I'm going to try to stick to that theme as much as possible, but I may have to deviate. Today's letter is G which stand for Group.

In military terms a group is a unit composed of two or more battalions or squadrons. A group in the marketing world is  the people you surround yourself with, whether they be online or in person.

You need support and help. Marketing is no easy task. That's why it helps to have a group of authors who share your ambition. As a group you should share new marketing ideas and tactics and even participate in marketing ventures together.

Throwing a blog event with your group is a great way to get everyone involved and get everyone more exposure.

In my group we often send out an email when we need help getting the word out about something. Who ever is available gladly jumps to help out the others and knows that the favor will be returned when they are in need.

It's also fun to share with each other what tactics have or have not worked for you. If you find that a certain thing is not working, share it with your group and they can either take your advice or help you improve your methods.
