An effective digital marketing strategy always revolves around a business’s website. The higher number of people you are able to attract towards your website, the more people you convert. A well executed blog can create relevant content for your visitors as well as existing customers. Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest can help boost your blog views. 

Creating a link to any of your social media platforms will ensure that your social media followers will scroll through your blogs which would indirectly help to increase the conversion rate. This will also give your social media followers a reason to click through to your website.

Your prospective customer wants to learn about your product or service in detail from your website,  posting blog content is the best way to build that connection with them. 

Blog posting helps you engage directly with user questions and queries which are often left unattended on the website. These questions help you to understand whether your customers are getting the information that they need from your blogs and also helps to know if your keywords are performing well.

Building Value 

You are building value with these people, blogs provide another source to enhance the connection with your customer. Consumers like to be informed and appreciate that you are educating them. 

If they have questions about a product or service you are writing about, respond to them directly on your website. Unlike many social sites, a blog is searchable on your website. Your website comments last longer than on a Twitter response or Facebook post. 

“Build trust by being a source of information.”

Consider what is important to your target market and existing customers, how your product or service will benefit them. What problem does it solve, how will it help them overcome some barrier or do their jobs better?

Many businesses just do not provide this in their blog content. By focusing on features and answers instead of benefits, and by shifting your focus to providing content that focuses on your customers’ wants and needs you are adding and building value to your brand.

Improve SEO and SERP

Blogs increase your SEO. Fresh content is key to one upping your competitors in the search engine results page. Google loves updated content, new content on your website can help to improve SERP rankings. This also helps you to use specific keywords about your product or service which helps to boost your search keywords. 

It may be difficult to regularly update your static content, you can add some engaging new topics from your team members by getting them to share their experiences at events or write about the latest trends in your industry.

Regular blogging about your business, product or service will naturally increase your search keywords. Be aware about the keywords you are using, this will only increase results.
