This is Why You Should Blog

Blogging, a dreaded duty for some and a most-welcome task for others. Many companies see blogging as an option, but we are here to tell you that company blogs have become a necessity.  Here are what blogs can do for you:

Blog for SEO

While you could drive the point that people may not be searching for your industry blog, consider this: creating a variety of content on your site will increase your online visibility by making it easy for search engines to find and index your written material.

The better the content is, the more attention your blog will get and you can make great content by using high quality keywords and back links. It is an organic and steady form of SEO. This content strategy also gives you the opportunity of getting some positive buzz around your industry. The more people that share your content, the more advertising you will receive.

Blog for Branding

Another great reason to blog is branding, this is the perfect opportunity to shape your brand image into what you want your consumers to perceive. Once you know what personality you want associated with your company, blog consistently to promote that reputation in a creative and differentiating way.

Blog for Education

The final convincing point of why you should blog is for the sake of education. If there are any complexities in your industry, blogging is an excellent way to educate your consumers on how products or services work or why they need it. You could even take the opportunity to learn something new in your industry, just like writing a research paper only it’s for everyone to learn from.

So, if you are one of our blog-dreading friends, we hope this blog helped eased the stress of writing and convinced you how important blogging is. Just remember, each blog is an opportunity to optimize, brand and educate in a creative way.

Let us know what you think of blogging at any of our social sites (you know, like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter) and we’ll share of few of your stories on our networks!
