It doesn’t matter what type of business you have, you can use a blog to generate interest and buzz around your products. Many business owners and entrepreneurs have found that by incorporating a regular blogging strategy into their routine, they are able to reach out to a client base that will either continually return to pay for their products and services or become willing advocates of your business.
Positioning Yourself as an Expert
One of the best reasons to create a blog and regularly update it with topics about your industry is so that you can position yourself as an expert in your field. For instance, if you own a landscape architecture firm, then you might want to blog about architecture, art history, gardening, landscaping, forestry and a variety of other subjects that are related to your field.
Doing this is the best way to put yourself forward as a specialist in your subject and promote the idea that you provide a quality product or service.
The following are some of the new experiences you can have by implementing this blogging strategy:
– Regular readers – you will eventually get a group of regular readers who fall into three groups: those who post positive comments and feedback on your blog, those who challenge and get into discussions with you, and those who never post or are more inclined to write you a personal email.
– More hits on your site – because of the increased traffic to your blog, you will also get more interest in your site; this happens either because people who are reading your blog are also following up to check out your offerings, or because your blog is becoming rated higher, clients looking for services or products you offer are finding them through Google.
– A community – many bloggers experience after a few months that they become part of a “community” of other bloggers, readers, commentators and experts in their industry; this is an excellent aspiration to aim for because it will allow you to become well-known and reputed in your field.
Keep the Fire Going
Many new bloggers find that they are very prolific for a while, but then everyday concerns take over and they become less able to write. They may have to spend their free time dealing with new communication issues and may not get around to being as creative as they have been.
But it is important to keep the creative fire going, because it is only through consistency that your readers will stay with you.
Engage, Converse, and Write What You Know
The key to writing a good blog is writing what you know. The best sports bloggers are those that truly enjoy and understand the games they cover on their blogs.
The best fashion blogs are those written by people who have studied and appreciated fashion, even if in an informal way. Don’t write a blog because you think people will read it; start it because you want to write about your topic.
From the beginning, it’s important to establish a connection with readers. The unique benefit of writing a blog versus writing for a printed publication is that you have a chance to directly interact with readers.
Engage readers in a conversation with your blog posts, and be sure to connect with them outside of the posts, too. Reaching out to readers via social media sites can be a good way to establish a more personal relationship with your readers, which should be the goal of anyone putting their voices out on the internet in the form of a blog.
