Why blogging is important

Blogging is one form of content marketing that helps you demonstrate your level of expertise on a specific topic. Written content helps you provide value for both current customers and future customers. It gives you content that you can share in different ways from email marketing to Facebook marketing.

If you aren’t already blogging for your business consistently, now is the time to start. Adding new content to your website regularly increases your organic traffic. Every time you produce quality blog posts, you improve your SEO. People uses search engines like Google to find answers to their problems.

You’re probably going to hate our answer. It depends.

The factors that affect blog production are time and money. If you’re doing all the marketing for your company, you may not have a lot of time so daily blog posts aren’t realistic. If your company’s cash flow is doing well, you can hire a writers to publish content everyday.

At the bare minimum, we recommend you publish a new blog post every week. Twice a month is pushing it and is most likely not enough. Remember that fresh, new content helps you rank better on Google. You will also have more blog posts to share on social media when you publish regularly.

What do I write about?

So you have a better idea of how often you should blog but what do you write about? You blog needs to answer the most common questions your business receives. It should also provide solutions to problems your ideal customer is trying to solve. For a few examples specific to different industries, check out these links:

Think about questions your friends and family ask you that are specific to your industry. Write about the problems people pay to solve whether it’s tax preparation or helping them have better camping experiences.

This is you when your web traffic increases after blogging.
