Silence is a gift when there is a lot of noise, but sometimes making a louder presence is the demand of time. We are talking about business blogs and content and how your business relates itself to them.
When you have something you want people to know and learn about it, teach them your way through your blog. This is a platform without black/white board, chalk/marker, and duster/cleaner but still has tools through which you can guide people (prospects and clients) to come to your blogs and read them in a way o appeals to them. We listen to what we like or are looking for, then why not?
Table of Contents
There was not much talk about a term like “content marketing” just 2 years ago. Since the day Google started working on removing websites that are inorganically trying to make it to its front page, content has become the king. Give readers the best things to read, learn, and explore your blog and website will become regular places for them to hang around. Maybe they end up looking at your offerings when needed!
Small Businesses are reaping more benefits from it because for them it gets really involved to bring out a full-fledged marketing campaign. They have to be satisfied by making people aware of their presence by employing the best SEO tools or the companies that are already equipped with them. Social media are giving a huge platform to them showcase their product and services in a way helping them build their brand slowly and buy gradually.
Asking a popular or more looking for question and then replying with suitable answers station facts and figures piques the interest of readers. This is done in the relation to your business offerings highlighted by the blogs. Giving readers suitable references and examples in your blog makes you credible and trustworthy in a long run. This is because you are not simply telling them about your product but also encouraging them to look for the best and then find you among them.
Citing examples from the industry explaining the solution your business is providing without actually marketing your company appeals to the reader. Give them more references and links to videos and reading materials regarding your industry to make them better informed. Just let them know, that if they are looking for some answers the blog doesn’t answer they are free to contact you. You have a very potential customer to be sure.
Want to know the potential of your blog, just see the sharing numbers (number of tweets, repins, G+1, Likes, etc) and they will tell the story. Make sure the availability (embedding) of these triggers is in places you have chosen strategically.
There are certain things you must know to avoid while tutoring your target audience through business blogging:
Blogs have been in the business for a very long time. However, the marketing potential of these blogs has increased significantly over the past few years.
Due to content marketing, businesses are drawing more and more customers towards them hence there is a need of creating a connection with these customers in order to enhance the sales and conversions of the businesses. For building this connection, companies have started writing blogs and showcasing and highlighting their brand over the internet.
The important thing to keep in mind is that the blog must be valuable – it is not at all enough to simply have a few blogs on your website rather there must be a purpose or reason that they are fulfilling because only then will they make some sense to your customers.
