Online marketing strategies are created to help drive traffic to a business’ website, and an important aspect of this intricate plan is blogging. Blogging creates trust between your business and customers, builds credibility for your products or services, gives resources to new and returning readers, and can solidify your brand/tone. Whether your considering blogging, have already started, or are looking for tips, there are 5 important aspects of blogging that can make or break your marketing plan.
Intriguing titles. If you’re not capturing someone’s attention in a short title, why would you expect them to commit to a 400-word post? Their time is precious, and blogs are supposed to be entertaining as much as they are informative. Your titles need to be attention-grabbing otherwise they get lost in the muck of other boring headlines.
Your writing has to be great. Complaining about essay writing in high school seems silly now that you want to enter the blog world. You can have the most pertinent information for your consumers but it means nothing when you can’t say it well. Being able to write a bland sentence isn’t enough, either. Personality, organization, and execution are all aspects necessary to satisfy a reader with visiting your website.
Have useful information. As much as someone wants to hear about your day and how long the line was to get coffee this morning, blogs need substance. Whether you’re looking to solely increase website traffic, compel readers to buy or invest in something, or just want to offer professional or personal advice, the reader must leave with something valuable.
Keywords are essential. For businesses to appear and be relevant in their market, they must be SEO-friendly. Knowing your keywords and how to integrate them into important topics in your field can shoot a business to the first natural link option on Google.
Call to actions that benefit the reader. Just as you should have information that matters to your reader, a call to action should exist to benefit their lives. It could be a service or product, but the reader must know the next step to take to put your advice to good use.
