Blog Awards Ireland – Sage Sponsors Best Blog Of An SME In The Blog Awards
By Beatrice Whelan, Social Media and Content Specialist at Sage
Sage is sponsoring Best Blog Of An SME in the Blog Awards Ireland. The Blog Awards are using Sage One Accounts which is an online accounting software to manage their accounts for the blog awards, keep track of income and costs and produce invoices.
The Sage Blog (which you’re reading now) is the hub of Sage social media activities and it’s where we publish the majority of our content that we share on social media channels so we were delighted to sponsor the Best Blog Of An SME, even more so when we saw the superb quality of blogs which are in the SME Blog Long List. I should mention that I am involved in the organising of the awards and am delighted to see the number of blogs that have entered in this category and in the other 28 categories.
Along with the other organisers of the awards I was invited to KCLR 96FM a few weeks ago to speak on the Bottom Line Business Show about the upcoming awards. I spoke about the business benefits of blogging and how you can measure the results using Google Analytics. You can listen to the broadcast here.
Our Sage Blog features guest bloggers such as business owners and accountants and we also crowd-source some of our posts via our Facebook and Twitter activity. At Sage, we are also interested in publishing posts by business owners that have an interesting story to tell. Get in touch by email at email@example.com or tweet us @sageireland.
The blog awards are on the 13th October in the Osprey Hotel in Naas and on 13th August the awards celebrated their launch party, also in the Osprey Hotel. At the launch party, Joan Mulvihill from the Irish Internet Association spoke, followed by Dave Antrobus of Grafton Media.
