He is set to keynote the first Blogging and Social Media Summit (BLOSOMEX) this Saturday August 8 at WOFEX, Function Room 3, 2nd Floor, SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
I interviewed him to give a preview on why you should not miss his keynote this weekend:
1). What works now on the internet in 2015 and beyond?
There are many things that work and there has never been so much opportunity to reach and connect with such a huge worldwide audience, or a highly focused audience.
2015 is the year of online video. While online video has been popular for many years, due to the development of social media and the wider prevalence of mobile devices and better internet speeds, this is the year when video is really expanding, both with viewers and creators. In my opinion, as an online business or blogger, video must be a part of your social strategy.
I also think blogging is still just as important as it has been in the last 10 years and will continue to be in the future. However, gone are the days when you can type a few words and add a photo and click publish. In order to succeed as a blogger in 2015 and beyond, you need to publish high-quality content that provides real value to readers.
