Starting a blog is my top recommendation for you if you are new to Web 2.0 social media marketing. Here are 8 reasons why.
Just like I do, you can use a blog to attract more business. Your blog can position you as an expert in your field. Regularly posting credible and informative articles and links then attracts visitors to your blog from all over the world. On my blog, some of those visitors become subscribers to my email newsletters and/or purchasers of my books and downloadable special reports, too.
8 Reasons YOU Should Be Blogging, too.
- Blogs allow you to position your business, products, and services exactly as you’d like potential customers and clients to view them.
- Blogs are easy to create, update, and almost free to implement.
- Blogs attract high search engine rankings on their own, plus they can create another search engine result (in addition to your main web site) in the rankings to attract more free traffic.
- Blogs are easy for consumers and clients to receive since their content can easily be delivered as web site entries, emails, or RSS feeds.
- Blogs automatically create RSS feeds that you can use to port your content over into other customer-rich environments like Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter.
- Blog posts can be automatically (and for free) repackaged into a newsletter format to email your subscribers.
- Blogs create a “community” around your business by encouraging people to comment on your blog posts.
- Blogs also give you a platform to protect your business’ “Reputation Cloud" where you can publicly refute any negative things that customers or competitors may say online.
