As long as your business is online, blogging can help drive more traffic to your site, secure more customers or clients and help build trust with the public. As a business owner, more site traffic and more customers is something very few of us would say no to, this can be achieved very simply from as little as publishing one blog a month.
Build A Trusty Following
As long as you’re putting good quality helpful content out there that people can trust you will soon start to build up a wealth of follows. Readers will see you as a trusty source of information which will translate into you being a trusty company in which people will spend money. Blog loosely about topics that relate to your business. Do not use your blogs to sell your products, offer advice instead. You can offer advice relating to your products, but do not obvious promote your products. You want your readers to feel like you are blogging to help others, rather than help yourself. Don’t forget to share your blogs on social media sites too!
Increase Traffic Using SEO
To the average business owner SEO is a foreign term. SEO stands for search engine optimisation and is the practice of working to get websites ranking on Google. A way in which this is done is producing new content with key words and linking to your site. As well as producing blogs to publish to your site it is also recommended that you publish blogs on others sites also. Doing this well help your site rank higher on Google.
To do this find other blogs and sites that are under a similar topic to your own and approach them via email about guest blogging on their site. When they accept you can then product content that fits in with their site and links back to your site helping with SEO. Be sure to research your key words though.
SEO can be a complex thing so for advice contact a UK SEO company if you find you do struggle.
Reach Your Target Market
Blogging around the subject of your business means you will automatically be brining in visitors that are more likely to buy your products or use your services because you know they are already interested in the subject. For example if you write a blog about kittens and you are selling laptops rarely ever will someone who is searching for blogs about kittens be looking to buy a laptop too. It’s all about sensible and practical blogging!
