Blogging Can Be A Usefull Resource For Small Businessesby Brandon J. Carver
Publishing a blog is a great way to market your small business on the internet. Millions of people search for information daily on the internet, researching products, services, even looking for the latest in style and in fashion. By simply sharing information about your products and services, you can be providing the content that internet users find to make decisions.
You can feed parts of your blog into your website, offering fresh content that changes periodically when you do a new blog. You can set up your blog to only post certain articles to certain areas, making for a free or inexpensive content management system. Plus, a little fresh content here and there on your website can really keep it from feeling stagnant, giving internet users a reason to come back, check out your website, and recommend it to a friend.
By adding social elements to your blog posts, you are making your content easier to be shared and recommended from one internet user to the next. Social buttons like the Facebook Like Button and the Twitter Tweet Button are today's word of mouth advertising - with one click, all of their friends will see your information!
In addition to social recommendations, all blog posts can be subscribed to by internet users' own feed readers. If a reader thinks you post useful or interesting information, they may subscribe to your blog so they can receive all of your posts without even visiting your site! Users also have the ability to receive your blog posts in their email inbox to read at their own convenience.
As if the reasons above are not good enough, consider this: every blog entry you make creates a new page of relevant content linking to your website. The more links pointing back to your website, the higher your page ranking will be in search engines. Additionally, blog posts themselves are likely to perform really well in search engines.
