You're trying to reach out to new audiences, but where do you start? Do you just update your social media page and hope for the best? Or do you just improve your search engine optimization (SEO) tactics?
In this day and age, it's important to stay relevant and visible. It's not enough for your company's content marketing strategy to revolve around your Facebook page and your website. You need to produce content relevant to your audiences. You need a blog.
In the early ages of the Internet, blogging was more of a stream-of-consciousness digital diary for users then known as a web log. There was an opportunity to be had—a business potential. Now, blogs are more than just Internet-based journals; blogging and content writing become an integral part of the content marketing strategy, producing content tailored to your intended audience.
That said, what can blogging do for your business? Here are five reasons how blogging can be beneficial to your business and further widen your reach.
1. Drive traffic to your main website
Directing your target audience toward your website involves coordinating your SEO, social media, and blogging efforts. Each entry you post on your blog gives you visibility in search engines, such as Google and Bing. Users are more likely to find your blog organically, which can lead them to your website itself. The content you post can be shared to social media accounts as well to drive traffic to your site.
2. Your content can help customers decide
Content marketing is about creating relevant and informative posts for your audience. By blogging, you're giving them information on what could they solve or improve on. Not only that, it helps them make informed decisions based on the details you've provided. If you've given them what they need, with the right moves, you can get them to buy your products or use your services.
3. You establish authority
By creating informative blog posts, you're establishing your authority in your industry. Potential customers will look to you more in hopes of finding answers. As previously said, blogging allows you to educate your potential customers. Clearing up their confusion shows your knowledge on the said topic, building trust, and eventually converting them to be your customers.
4. You develop your brand
Blogging allows you to create and develop your brand personality. Your business isn't a transactional thing anymore. Your blog can serve as a mouthpiece of your brand's personality, which can appeal to your general target audience. From the nurturing mother to the professional peer who has your back, your blog is your business' brand personality come alive.
5. You engage your customers
Your blog becomes one of the ways for your customers to learn more about your products or services. You can gauge your customer engagement by checking the blog comments for feedback, reviews, or testimonials. You can also check its traffic, check which topics get the most engagement and organic searches, and develop posts from there.
