Why should you consider working with Houston bloggers?
The first important reason why blog advertising is a good choice is that blogs are usually updated frequently and so visited by the search engines more often than static web pages, which means your advertisement and link will get noticed sooner.
Another big reason is that many blogs are highly read which means that your advertisement will be placed in front of a large audience. Even better, if you allow Hello Houston! Media to select the blogs you advertise on, then you will match your ad with the target readership of the blog, so the resulted traffic will be very targeted. Best of all, you could start getting that targeted traffic within minutes of your advertising hitting the web.
A third reason blog advertising is attractive to many internet marketers is that it is inexpensive and sometimes downright cheap. Of course, purchasing ad space on the high traffic and high ranked blogs will not be cheap — but it is often much cheaper than any alternative form of advertising.
Finally, blog advertising can provide all these benefits in the long term. Many blogs have been around for years and will continue to publish long after your initial advertising or marketing campaign has ended. Unlike television or radio ads, and even many internet advertising ads, some forms of blog advertising, especially blog post sponsorship, will stay on the blog permanently for the life of the blog. That longevity makes the cost of blog advertising even more cost effective.

Welcome to the Houston, Texas
Houston was founded on August 30, 1836, by brothers Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen on land near the banks of Buffalo Bayou. The city was incorporated on June 5, 1837, and named after then-President of the Republic of Texas—former General Sam Houston—who had commanded at the Battle of San Jacinto, which took place 25 miles (40 km) east of where the city was established. The burgeoning port and railroad industry, combined with oil discovery in 1901, has induced continual surges in the city’s population.
In the mid-twentieth century, Houston became the home of the Texas Medical Center—the world’s largest concentration of healthcare and research institutions—and NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where the Mission Control Center is located.
Houston is the largest city in the United States without formal zoning regulations, it has developed similarly to other Sun Belt cities because the city’s land use regulations and legal covenants have played a similar role. Regulations include mandatory lot size for single-family houses and requirements that parking be available to tenants and customers. Such restrictions have had mixed results.
Though some have blamed the city’s low density, urban sprawl, and lack of pedestrian-friendliness on these policies, the city’s land use has also been credited with having significant affordable housing, sparing Houston the worst effects of the 2008 real estate crisis.
