Blogging


Blogging is a significant way for you to gain website traffic and help convert leads into customers. By providing valuable content, blogs can easily and effectively draw prospects to your website. 

Keep Your Buyer Persona In Mind

Be sure that you know your audience. The content on your blog needs to attract your target audience- your buyer personas- in order to convert website traffic into leads and eventual customers. Remember, if you help solve someone's problem, they're likely to come back to you.

Address One Topic Per Post

It is best to focus on one topic in each blog post. This will ensure that you're utilizing your post for search engine optimization. Therefore, if you find yourself writing about something other than the topic you began with, you may want to consider breaking up your post into multiple ones. 

Blog Consistently and Frequently

You should publish as often as you want to get found online. Research has shown that consistent blogging boosts inbound ROI- 82% of marketers who blog daily report positive ROI for overall inbound efforts. While publishing frequently is ideal, remember that producing remarkable content is more important. 

Great Imagery and Format

Design is an important aspect of blogging because you want to gain readers' attention and keep it. Good formatting practices should include bolded text, subheaders, numbers, bulleted lists, whitespace, and high-quality images.
