Did you know that businesses that blog have 55% more visitors to their website?
Business blogging is a great way of increasing the online visibility of your business so that you can be found, and seen, on the internet. In other words, it’s a sure fire way to get your business out in front of people looking for your products and services online.
Drive Traffic to Your Website
Just like social media or email marketing, blogging supports the growth of your business by driving traffic to your website and creating the opportunity to convert that traffic into paying customers.
Being found in search engines is incredibly important for businesses. And for every blog post you publish, you are creating another opportunity for your website to appear in search engine results for the queries people enter into them. On average, blogging produces a massive 436% increase in the number of pages indexed in the search engines, therefore the more indexed pages you have, the greater your chance of being found.
Share Original Content on Social Media
Blogging will also help you get discovered on social media, as you’re creating content that can be shared on your social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. You’ll slowly build up a repository of content on your blog that is not only original, it’s also perfect for sharing on the above channels, widening your audience.
Establish Authority and Build Credibility
Business blogs are a fantastic way of sharing your expertise and your knowledge. Good blogs answer common questions that their leads and customers may have; so the more useful, relevant information you share in your blog posts, the more credibility you will gain. Let’s face it, people are far more likely to buy products or services from businesses they feel like they already know and trust.
