The Top 3 Reasons Your Business Needs A Blog in 2013

If you are looking for ways to ramp-up your business in 2013, consider a professional blog. Below are the top three reasons a blog should be on every business owner’s 2013 marketing plan.

SEO- Blogs that offer quality content rank higher in Google and Yahoo searches than static website pages. Unlike a website, a blog allows you to add and post fresh content on a consistent basis, and a higher ranking will ultimately bring more traffic to your site, which in turn, will increase your rankings.

Social Media Marketing– When managed properly, blogs and social media channels work together seamlessly to generate traffic to your business. It only takes a few simple steps to have a powerful impact. Just write a great blog-post and share on your social media sites. Not only will your followers be introduced to your blog, but your social media sites will look more professional, and the professional content will give your clients a reason to read your updates.

Share Your Expertise– When you write informative and education articles and post them several times a week, your customers will take notice of your knowledge and view you as an expert. If our competitors haven’t realized the value of a blog, you are already one step ahead.
