"I don't have time to blog..."
When we hear the excuse "I don't have the time for blogging", we can make some assumptions about what that person or company does and doesn't know about what a blog is. There's a misunderstanding about the power of blogs and how much impact they can make on your revenue and profits. So, instead of saying "I don't have the time", what you're really saying is "improving my sales and marketing is not important to me".If you don't have time for blogging, what DO you have time for, exactly? Listen to what Chris has to say when he hears this excuse.
