Four Ways to Market Your blog

Depending on what source you use, there is somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 million active English language blogs today. That’s some steep competition for your blog. Making yourself stand out and generating readership are your two biggest goals when starting a new blog. Here are four ways to start dominating the internet and marketing your brilliant blog.

1. Give it Away
People are hesitant to give away valuable content for free—especially in the business world. But giving away free content increases your online visibility. Take heart in knowing that several online powerhouses such as Cory Doctrow, Julie Powell, and Brian Clark all give away some of their best advice for free. Don’t know them? Look them up, and start learning from the best in the biz.

2. Write Articles for Other Blogs
Your website will take time to build up an audience. In the meantime, take advantage of others’ blogs and websites that have already established an online presence and write a guest article, linking back to your blog of course. The key here? Use your best, most captivating articles on the others’ blogs. While tempting to save it for your site, people are more likely to see it—and in reading it, visit your site—than if it existed on your site alone.

3. Get your Tweet On
Twitter is a powerful tool, if you know how to use it to your advantage. One of the most important necessities of your blog’s twitter account is followers. Socialnewswatch.com offers a list of 237 Twitter users who will, almost guaranteed, follow you back if you seek them out. Just search “Top 237 Twitter Users Who Will Follow You Back” on Socialnewswatch.com. Once you’re being followed by this nice boost of 200 plus users, utilize it. Don’t just sit there. Interact with them so they’ll interact with you. Promote yourself and promote them. It’s a give and take relationship.

4. Be Quirky
The most evident example of quirkiness in action is David Ogilvy. If you’re not familiar with the story, here it is in a nutshell: to promote an ad campaign, which Ogilvy was modeling for, he put an eye patch on in the picture. Yes, an eye patch. The campaign was a hit due to the mysteriousness and oddity of “The Man in the Hathaway Shirt.” So what will be your blog or website’s eye patch? You need to differentiate yourself from the previously mentioned millions of other bloggers competing for your readers. Try to think of something entirely unique, useful and specific.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
