The power of blogging for your business and how to get it right – with online marketing legend, Yaro Starak #64

Is blogging still relevant? Does it matter in the age of social media? And if you do blog hacking effectively, does it actually gets you results? Well, I’m very pleased that Yaro Starak has agreed to answer those questions for us on the Ideas Lab Podcast. I’ve been following Yaro from somewhere around 2008, maybe even a little bit earlier. And he’s something of a legend of the online marketing world.

He started his first online business in 1999, when he was still 19 years old. He’s never had a full time job. And he’s always had some kind of online business for the last 20 years, from selling services like essay editing and email management, to buying and selling websites to blogging and digital products.

So I’m really glad that we could dive into what really works in blogging these days, and why we should all still be writing a blog.

Best Wishes,
