Key Reasons You Need a Blog for Your Business

Blog Post

When it comes to putting you and your business out there, you may struggle with your marketing. There are so many different options that you might not know where you want to start. If you already have a marketing plan in place, you may want to add more, but you don't know where to start.

Blogging can be a great way to attract new customers. If you don't already have a blog, here are some reasons why you should think about starting one.

Drives traffic to your website. Though a website is beneficial for your business, if people don't find it, it isn't really helpful.

So, how do people find your website? They can either type in the address (because they already know about you) or they can search online for information and find you that way!

And keep them there. Once they are on your website, you want them to keep reading your blogs and look around to see what you else you have to offer.

Good for SEO. Keeping customers on your website for long periods of time is good for SEO (or search engine optimization). The search engines notice when people quickly go to another website and when they stick around. They prefer to send people to websites that people spend quality time on.

They are also quicker to send people to websites that get updated and changed on a regular basis. The easiest way to do this is by creating blogs regularly.

Find potential customers. People go online every time that they need to find out some new information. If you provide information that is helpful (and relates to your business), you may see more and more people reading your blogs.

As they read more of your blogs, they may feel better about buying your products or using your services because they feel like they know something about you.

Establish yourself as an expert. The better that your blogs are, the more people read them. As more people read them, they will see how knowledgeable you are. You will eventually become the person (and business) that they turn to when they need some help.

Lasts forever. Unlike social media, where your posts get buried under all of the other ones that come and go, blogs will stay online forever. As long as they are relevant, your readers will find them for years to come, bringing traffic back to your website for a long period of time!

Passive income. Blogging can be a great way to bring in some extra income. Once you have enough readers, you can make money when they click on the links that you put in your blog. This doesn't work for every business, but there may be a way to sell products for others on your Blog.

Though you may not think about blogging as marketing, you really should. It is an easy way to increase traffic to your website, meet new customers, and show the search engines that they should refer others to your website.

The more (and better) blogs that you write, the more people will start to come to your website when they need information. This establishes you as an expert and people will be more likely to do business with you.

You may also find a way to make some passive income off of your Blog. By referring products (by the way of links), you can make money with every sale that comes from your blogs. Even a few dollars a week (or day) can really add up, making your business even more successful.
