Many businesses that have a website have begun accepting that having a blog can help in getting an audience to sell their services, and more importantly, get them discovered. It’s a good thing to have search engines finding and ranking your website, and an even better thing to have potential customers find you. Even businesses who realize that a blog can help their business, some struggle even getting started and/or maintaining it.


Why Do I Need A Blog?

Having a blog on your website is an essential part of modern marketing. A blog allows you to communicate with your customers and build relationships with them. It also provides a platform for you to share content, promote products and services, and increase your visibility in search engine results.

A blog can help you to establish yourself as an expert in your industry. By providing helpful, informative content that is relevant to your audience, you can position yourself as the go-to source for information in your field. This establishes trust and credibility, which is essential for building relationships with customers.

Having a blog also helps boost website traffic by increasing the number of keywords associated with your site. As more people read and share your content, search engines will recognize this activity and rank your website higher in their results page. Additionally, having a blog gives you more opportunities to link back to other webpages on your website, which helps further increase visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs).


Countdown To Launch

Ready to get started? Here are 6 steps to help you blast off:

  1. Decide on a goal for your blog. Do you want to establish your company as an industry leader? Increase brand awareness? Grow your customer base? Once you have a clear idea of the purpose of your blog, you can use this goal as a guide for all your content creation decisions.
  1. Identify who will be responsible for creating content for the blog and then assign tasks accordingly. Will one person be responsible for all posts, or will multiple people within the company contribute? Consider assigning different topics to different people so that all areas of expertise are covered.
  1. Choose an appropriate platform for hosting the blog and customize it based on your desired look and feel. Research various platforms and decide which one is best suited for your needs (WordPress, Squarespace, etc.).
  1. Brainstorm post ideas and begin creating content for the blog. Think about topics that are relevant to both your company and potential readers, such as new product releases, industry news, customer stories/successes, etc., as well as topics that may be more lighthearted but still related to what you do (such as fun office activities or employee achievements).
  1. Set up social media accounts and start promoting the blog across multiple channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). This will help increase visibility and bring more readers to the blog itself!
  1. Analyze data from analytics tools (Google Analytics being one example) in order to track progress towards achieving your original goal(s). This will help inform future decisions about content creation as well as other aspects of running a successful company blog.
