Why is blogging good for my business?

by: Seth Alvo

Chances are you’ve done web searches on various topics, only to find articles pertaining to your exact search query. Perhaps you’re researching how to do your taxes yourself, or learning about a new feature on your phone. The Internet is full of informative articles on almost any topic you can think of.

How do the writers get paid? Advertising is an obvious form of revenue for high volume blogs, but this is not always the case. Most of the time, simply having a blog can benefit your business.

First, consider the initial impression your website has on a visitor. You may be an expert in your field, but how will you prove this to potential clients on their primary visit to your site? A blog is an excellent way to demonstrate your knowledge.

So, why continue writing additional blog entries? Why not write five or six articles and stop there? The simple answer is that the more content you create, the greater the chance of your site appearing in search engines. If you share your blogs in social networking sites, the chances are increased even more.

What about hiring someone to post tons of stuff on my site?
Many business owners have gotten the wrong message about blogs. The Internet is full of low quality information, sometimes containing grammatical errors and false information. Obviously, this projects a terrible image of your company to anyone viewing the blog. What’s worse, pointless articles are rarely shared and recommended, making them less likely to appear in search engines. Have someone inside of your organization write useful articles about relevant topics, and it will work to your benefit.

What if I’m not a good writer?
Even if you’re not a good writer, you can hire someone to clean up your spelling and grammar. Content writing services like those we provide can turn a disorganized heap of useful information into a highly readable source of valuable information.
