Why Every Business Needs a Blog
A new year is great for new dreams and goals, but an even better time to ensure that your business is doing well, and your audience (i.e. clients and/or customers) is gaining something from consistently visiting your website. After all, that’s what a successful blog does: shows your audience how valuable you and your product are to them. In today’s market, having a blog isn’t only important, but necessary.
Still on the fence? Here are four reasons why every business – even your business needs a blog!
Traffic! Traffic! Traffic!
This isn’t your first rodeo: you know that numbers talk! Not only can a well-written, informative blog help increase the traffic to your site, but when done correctly, a blog can bring even more exposure to your company and its product. More so, a blog will not only bring traffic to your site but the right traffic to your site.
What does the “right traffic” mean, exactly? You don’t want just some random audience clicking through your site, but an audience that can actually gain something from your company, an audience that is going to stick with you and help your business grow. A blog will help ensure you connect with the best audience for all goals and needs.
A Stronger Brand
Your business needs a blog because you want clients and/or customers to feel as if they know your company and its product. What’s the best way to build this solid foundation with your audience? Showcasing your brand. Don’t just tell the world who you are, but show them! You can accomplish this feat quickly and efficiently: writing a blog! A weekly (or bi-weekly – depending on your preference) blog will show off your personality, and remind people why they’ve chosen your company and its product.
Further, don’t use your blog for selling purposes, as that will immediately distract and turn off your audience. You’re not trying to get anything out of them, but give them something for being so loyal.
When written correctly, a blog can help generate more leads for your company. The richer your blog is, the more time people will spend on your site, exploring what you have to offer. If the blog is filled with fun, useful information, as well as published consistently, then your audience will keep coming back for more. In doing so, they will get to know you and your company’s product even better, which could result in more business and growth. After all, you want leads that will eventually transfer into loyal customers . . . this starts with a blog!
Show Your Expertise
You want to show your audience that you know best! Specifically, you want to show that when it comes to the product you’re offering, no one knows it better than you. By writing a blog, you can prove to clients and/or customers exactly what you know, every small detail about the product, and why the product is valuable. This is the perfect opportunity to show your expertise, and why you’re a leader in your particular industry.
Ready, Get Set . . . Blog!
Whatever you do, don’t look as blogging as a chore – have fun with the task! You want your audience to enjoy reading your blog, meaning you have to enjoy writing it. As long as the content is fresh, fun, and informative, you’ll have no problem finding readers and followers.
Okay, enough reading! It’s time for action. Ready, get set . . . blog!
