Why Should a Business Have a Blog?

When it comes to marketing, it’s often the little things that set you apart from the competition. Two companies could be dead even in their services, customer satisfaction, quality, etc., but the extras of what one might do over the other will make a viewer a client. Blogging is one of those things that can give you an edge. Why should a business have a blog? Here are a few key reasons!¬†

SEO

SEO is a complicated topic that involves many moving pieces, including internal and external backlinking. Having a blog on your site is an excellent way to use these backlinking tactics, all while providing something worthwhile to people viewing your site. 

Social Media 

No one wants to be sold to all the time. Having a blog that you can share on social media is an excellent way to still get your company in front of people without making them feel like you’re just a walking sales pitch. Blogs help harness the power of site traffic.¬†

Show Off and Tell More

A product or service description can only tell people so much. Blogs are great places to expand on your offerings in an informational way, particularly if you offer something niche or complicated. You can use the blog to talk more about ingredients, processes, quality assurance, etc., leading to a more informed buyer. You’re a thought leader in your industry! Take the time to show off a little. Your clients will love it!

Build Trust 

Many people start businesses without really knowing all that is required to make them successful. Having a great product or service simply isn’t enough in an ever-increasingly digital and competitive world. By having a blog on your site, you can show people that you’re knowledgeable in your craft and have a passion for showing it. This is especially important if you offer a high-dollar investment. You’re asking people to spend their hard-earned money with your company, so you need to be able to show them that you’re worth their trust.¬†
