Online publishing could do so much than present a new style of storytelling, engaging audience, interacting with fans, friends, supporters, concerned citizens, clients or potential ones.
In fact, 28% of the Fortune 500's blogs link to Twitter accounts and 5 of the top 10 companies have public blogs: Wal-Mart, Chevron, General Motors, Ford, and Bank of America. Why so? Because blogs have the power to reach a wider audience and they are able to communicate and market their brands, products and services with a small investment.
Google and other search engines provide references to blogs and their content that is why bloggers around the world are being considered by PR Agencies as well when it comes to promoting business and events like...
But most importantly, blogs have the power to influence if done well especially when harnessed to further great causes same as we did for our social marketing project under the Young Minds Academy.
You can make blogging as a career too! If you offer products and services, you can very well use this tool along with other social media outlets to reach to more people.
To learn more about improving your blog sites, how to make it sustainable, professional, and how it could help your business and social causes, you can attend the Visayas Blogging Summit for FREE!
This year it is being held in Cebu and is organized by the great people behind Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. (CBSi). The CBSi members and Board of Trustees would like to thank our partners and sponsors which will make the event happen at SM City Cebu on November 26, 2011. Also, get to meet bloggers from other parts of the Visayas region and hear from Mayor Mike Rama and respected guest speakers as well!
I am much honored to be part of the organizing committee for this event and I was tasked to spearhead the branding, marketing collateral designs which include the poster design. And after a long collaborative design process we were able to come up with the following graphic and branding outputs below:

|VISAYAS BLOGGING SUMMIT (VBS) CEBU 2011 SUB BRAND by Jaysee Blabs.. The graphics represent the fun and dynamism of the province in all aspects which accompanies the summit graphic with two Cebu icons which are not faith based for universality. The ‘puso’ or hanging rice represents Cebu’s humility despite everything it could boast for. The guitar denotes the ability of Cebuanos to create rhythm in all industries which I think is the most advantageous character we have.|
|VISAYAS BLOGGING SUMMIT (VBS) GLOBAL LOGO by Jaysee Blabs. The Typeface reads VBS which stands for the event. Acronym is being used instead of the full text for more recall value and for easier marketing. The Graphics show a mountain where the summit emits the RSS symbols. The mountain denotes the challenges and success that online publishers face. Minimalism is employed in the design process so you can experiment with colors and sub branding evolution purposes. Blue gradients represents the professionalism that blogging has become.|
