Why is Having a Blog for Your Website Important?
As we all know, we live in a digital world. If one is looking for something, they can do a quick Google search in about three seconds and come up with thousands of results. For us small business owners, it is of growing importance that we are at the top of the list of those search engine results in order to increase traffic. One effective way to boost our position on the list, or increase SEO, is to write a business blog.
Typically, one would not consider blogs to be business related… often, people consider blogs to be something more personal, akin to a web diary. This was the trend when blogs first gained popularity at the turn of the century, but today’s “blogosphere” has expanded to include professional interests as well. It is becoming increasingly common for businesses to write blogs because they generate more viewership and engage potential customers and business partners. Although these are proven strategies for success, it is hard to constantly update your business’s website. After all, how often can you change your “About Us” section? Not too many times. Further, you want your customers to be familiar with the general outline of your site. So how can you continuously provide new and relevant content? That’s where a professional blog comes in! A blog allows the opportunity for content to be constantly updated, which increases your SEO. The more content that is relevant and regularly posted, the more likely it will be that your website will come up on search results.
Additionally, writing blog posts that relate to your business shows that you are knowledgeable about your craft. Of course you know the business and the ins and outs of your trade, but it is always an added bonus to demonstrate that knowledge to customers in pertinent, easy to read blogs. Also, if customers have questions about your company or the topics your business deals with, they can turn to the blogs.
