If you’re sort of or even brand new to doing business online, you have probably thought at least a little bit about the platform through which you want to do business. There are a lot of good reasons to incorporate a blog into your business (way more than three). One of the biggest reasons is SEO, or search engine optimization/marketing, which is where blogs out perform all other sites. But there is quite a lot more to it and it mostly concerns more efficient marketing. The efficiency factor (ease of use and speed of use) are important. Typically, things are faster and easier on a blogging platform and that is why so many people choose them.
One of the big benefits for using a blog is the ability to get things done so much faster. This includes adding new content, updating the blog, or even rolling out new marketing tactics. Social media marketing just keeps growing in popularity every day. If you install some simple plugins to your blog, readers will be able to share the things you post with others they know. You’ll find plenty of ways to encourage this type of response from your readers. This is just a matter of creating strong connections using social media. Yes, you can do that with static sites, but it’s much more cumbersome and takes more time. It makes no difference how small your business is, presenting a professional image is crucial. This is very easily done with a business blog, as this acts as the online face of your business. Work on offering customers more information about what your business offers, but be sure you keep it professional. While it is true that you can accomplish the same thing with a static site, it is a lot easier to do with a blog. It’s the convenience that really makes a blog worthwhile.
The blogging platform–as a business tool–offers you quite a lot more flexibility in terms of your marketing and in other areas as well. One of the things that you need to think about in terms of being more flexible is the speed at which you can execute and then change directions. It is very common and normal to have the need to change up your marketing. The faster you can do that, the more efficient and effective you will be. If you think the need for that does not exist, then just think about what happens with Google algorithm updates, etc. Web business is fluid and it changes as quickly as the wind changes direction in the sky. It’s important to be able to respond and you’ll be able to do this faster when you blog.
When you are weighing the choice of going with a blog for your business, just think about the dynamic environment on the web. If you’re still relatively new to Internet business, you need to figure out what all is possible. For example, it’s possible for policies–policies that will have a major impact on your business–to change in an instant. For the most part these changes affect some specific method, but there are also other reasons to be concerned.
