Bring Blogs to Your Marketing Strategy
There is not one single secret to small business success, every business is unique. However, when two businesses take similar measures in marketing themselves yet one includes blogging, you’re going to see a difference in results. The importance of blogging can’t be understated.
According to HubSpot, in the B2B market, blogs are used to gain 67 percent more leads for businesses compared to companies that don’t blog.
Here are six reasons why you should consistently be posting blogs that speak to your target audience:
- Build a relationship
Consumers are more likely to latch on to your brand if they can see the human side of the business. A blog allows you to give your business a voice.
Whether you’re pushing products or services, an informative blog can assist you in getting more eyes on promotions and give potential buyers reasons they will benefit from taking you up on the promotional deal.
Blogs are a tried and true method of boosting your ranking in search.
- Big Data
The more you know about your target audience’s behavior; the better you can market to them. A robust blog section in your website will offer up a lot of information on consumer preferences when you track the analytics.
- Relay Your Mission
You know your purpose, your mission – you just need to let others know about it. The importance of blogging is probably most tied to this item as you can really lay out what you’re about in a 500 word or longer blog.
- Thought Leadership
You’re an expert in your industry. A blog gives you the platform to touch on important issues that affect people interested in your line of work. Your blog is your platform to prove you are qualified to address these issues.
High quality content is a must if your blog is going to make an impact on your business. Not all small business owners have the time or inclination to devote to a regular blog, which is why it’s important to outsource your content.
