4 Reasons Why You Should Start a Business Blog
Writing a blog about why blogging is important for your business might seem a little ‘Inception’ – but it’s something you need to be seriously considering if you’re a new start-up or a small business.
It’s been said that business blogging is dead, that it’s not relevant anymore with so much social media available to us now; but be reminded, it isn’t.
Below, Bulletpoint Marketing have put together our top 4 reasons on why business blogging is key.
Be An Expert In Your Industry
Starting a business these days is no easy feat. The competition out there is your biggest challenge and ensuring your status among them is vital. Writing a blog with latest news, company updates, and knowledge about your industry shows that you are an expert in your field. Customers and any new readers will feel that you are knowledgeable, reliable, and can be trusted. If someone feels you are very experienced in your industry, then they’re more likely to choose you over another business.
Improve Your SEO
A business blog fuels SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and will push your website higher on search engine results. Google and other search engines prefer regularly updated websites with fresh new content than those that haven’t been touched in a few months. A blog is a good reason to regularly update your website, and higher rankings on Google should mean more site visitors and in turn, more customers.
Increase Website Hits and Profit
In theory, the higher your website ranks on Google, the easier you’ll be to find, resulting in increased site visits. With more site visitors engaging on your site, the more phone calls you’ll get, the more site purchases will be made, and you’ll reap the benefits. As small business, you can creep higher up and target localised searching in order to move through the rankings.
Create a Brand
Having a business blog allows your website to have a strong voice, and establishes a stronger, more personal brand. Customers can relate if your business seems less robotic; you can go off-topic, use humour, and add a more relaxed tone to your site whilst remaining professional and knowledgeable. It’s an opportunity to be creative and although it may take some time to get right, it will only benefit you in the long run.
