Should your business be into blogging?

Blogging is a hot topic, especially now. Statistics reveal a new blog is created every second around the world! Should your business be into blogging?

Blogging is a simple and easy way of broadcasting information to the world via your website,

which people can also subscribe to.

With the click of a button, your content can be sent out to individuals and other websites, instantly.

Best of all this presents a unique opportunity to engage with your clients, keeping them informed and even entertained whilst building your company image at the same time.

Open a dialogue

Your blog also enables you to start a productive dialogue with clients and prospects by offering them the opportunity to leave comments and responses to your articles. This creates an immediate and personal interaction with them.

Before starting a blog, you should consider whether you will have time to check all comments. It’s also worth remembering that posting all comments could open the door for some unwelcome or inappropriate content.

Improve your search engine ranking

Blogs are a great way to improve your search engine rankings because they constantly add new content to your site and generate inbound links from other websites.

Pulling the latest blog post back onto your home page ensures Google and other search engines see a different home page each time. The page is constantly updated while growing in size (which Google ranking loves!).

Should every business have a blog?

No. When done well, blogging can be an excellent marketing tool. When done badly (which it often

is) it can be a disaster for the blogger’s image. To blog successfully you need the following:

  1. Great content. Make sure you have enough to say and that it is relevant and of value to your clients.
  2. Good writing skills. Although blogs are an informal way of writing, you still need to be able to write short, engaging content that is easy to read.
  3. Time. Time to research and write articles and manage responses.
