As a new year gets underway, now is the perfect time to think about how to transform your current small business’s online profile.
A straightforward and effective way to do this is by blogging. Blogs provide information about your brand and establish you as an authority in whatever service your brand offers. They channel traffic to your webpage and, when done right, can convert readers into customers in just a few short clicks.
To get the most out of your blog, follow these top tips:
1. Check out the competition
Get inspiration from the blogs your competitors are creating. This will give you a sense of the style, length and content that offer and will help you to distinguish your blog from theirs.
2. Think about keywords
If someone wants to use a product or service like the one that you offer, what are the words they would type into a search engine? These will be your keywords, and these will have to appear in any blog text that you write.
3. Get the tone right
Writing takes practice, and getting the tone and pitch of a blog right does too. Think about the demographic or your target clientele. What age are they? Do they live in an urban or rural area? What are their interests? What do they do professionally? Awareness of all these elements will help you to craft a blog that really makes an impact.
