Are you trying to decide whether blogging is a good idea for your business?

Adding a blog is not only easy but it’s a great way to introduce people to your business, products and services.  If you’re not blogging, it really is time you started, here are some great reasons why:

  1. They contain up to date information – if you blog on a daily or weekly basis you will be sharing information that is current.
  2. Blogs are easy to update – in fact you could even let other people contribute to your blog but make sure you have some rules in place first.
  3. Having a blog fuels SEO – search engines like websites that are updated regularly and adding frequent blogs to your website does that.
  4. There’s always something to write about – you can tell people anything in a blog from alerting people to your products to providing expert advice.
  5. Blogs complement Social Media – you can make announcements on Social Media and alert people to your blog for the full story.
  6. Blogs attract comment – it’s good to get people talking.  Blogging is an amazing way to start dialogue between you and a potential customer.
  7. A chance to step out of your comfort zone – you’ll build more traffic by doing this. Try being a bit daring with what you say.
  8. Have more than one blog - If you have several areas of expertise, set up a blog for each and make your case as a specialist in each area.
  9. Obtain feedback – use your blog to obtain feedback and don’t forget to respond.
  10. You don’t have to be a web designer – there are many blogging platforms out there that are user friendly

If you haven’t got a blog, why not give your company a voice and set one up today!
