There is some debate out there as to whether blogging is still relevant in today’s social media marketing environment and some people wonder whether blogging is worth the time or effort for their small businesses, but it can be a valuable way of connecting with your customers and gaining crucial exposure for the company. Blogging is essential to your online content marketing strategy.
Here are some of the most important we reasons we think you should start blogging if you haven’t already.
Improve your reputation
It doesn’t make a difference how small your business is, blogging is a good way for your business to build trust and influence your industry. By providing content that will be viewed as relevant, expert data, your potential customers get to see the knowledge and experience that you have earned in your field. This will not only help to improve customer relationships but your relations with other businesses as well.
Connect with others
Blogs provide another source to develop a connection with your customer. By connecting directly on your website, your clients can get to know your business or product from the comfort of your online home base. A post doesn’t need to go viral to reach a lot of people. If the content you are creating is relevant and informative, readers will find it and share it with others. By connecting with a larger audience, your sales and bookings will soon start to increase as well.
Build a picture of your audience
By using blog analytics you can get a good idea of who is following you and who is interested in what you have to say with no difficulty. This is vital for your small business, as any marketing works best when you know your target audience.
Improve your search engine optimisation
Blogs boost your SEO. Providing new content regularly will automatically improve your SEO. By ensuring that you use relevant keywords in your online presence and content, your blog and website will be pushed up higher in the search engine ratings. Blogging daily about your business, product or customer lifestyle will naturally enhance your search keywords. Being determined by your words will only increase results.
