Benefits of Blogging: Living Proof it Works

Posted by Silvia Lilly on Dec 21, 2017 8:30:00 AM


The very moment I'm in the process of brainstorming a new blog post I aim for relevance, level of interest, personal experience and what our target audience is looking for. Always analyze your ideas from all angles! What topics are going to generate views yet, empower the reader? It hasn't always come naturally! In fact, in the midst of strategizing each post I've came upon several moments where I debated whether anyone would remotely read what I had to say. I constantly questioned if blogging was a complete utter waste of time.

When you take on the chore to blog for your business you're not simply writing about anything. You are giving the public a reason to visit your website. You must deliver insight, awareness and knowledge on a subject relevant to your reader that's beneficial to their needs. Keyword, BENEFIT. But, is blogging only about the reader? What about you? How is writing about different topics even benefiting your business? Well, listen up.

Kulture Konnect Celebrates 12 Years of Innovative Design & Marketing Services

Posted by Silvia Lilly on Dec 12, 2017 8:30:00 AM

An idea became reality the day before ringing in 2006. On December 31, 2005, Kulture Konnect founder, Niki Pacheco, brought her college senior project to life, starting a marketing and design service with co-founder Jorge Pacheco. The two started their services from their home office, which later transformed into a studio. Twelve years later, we are proud to say we've made it past the 10-year mark.

Our studio has come a long way since 2005. As we celebrate over 10 years of business, our team created an infographic highlighting our progress and how much we've evolved over the last 12 years of providing innovative design and marketing services! Click here to view infographic.

With that said, we wanted to also take this opportunity to take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the history of Kulture Konnect. Scroll below!
