Building A Strong Business Blog

Aug 18, 2007
A business blog is a great way to reach more customers and communicate with them on a more personal level. One of the biggest disadvantages of online businesses is that you do not have as much contact with the customer as you would if you ran a traditional storefront business. This means fewer chances to offer customers personal assistance. One way around is to create a business blog that is informative, entertaining and speaks to those who would be interested in purchasing the products from your website.

Business blogs are different from other types of blogs. When people think of blogs, they still think of personal diaries or writings about personal experiences that having nothing to do with their own lives. But in recent years, many businesses have seen the popularity of blogs and have taken them to the next level by introducing informative blogs that appeal to specific groups of people.

These blogs are read by thousands of potential customers each day. If you want to create a business blog, you should consider your audience. What are they looking for? Will they find your products interesting? Why will they continue reading your blog? Your blog should be able to reflect the industry you work in, aspects of the business or about products featured on your website. While it is fine to use humor in your blogs, you should try to be as informative as possible.

If you are new to blogging, you should research popular blogs that are similar to what you want to create. Most blogs are short posts between one hundred to three hundred words. Some blogs are longer. It is up to you how long you want your blogs to be. The best way to attract a constant stream of readers is to post frequently. This means at least once a week. Plan your blog a few days in advance to make sure it is well written and edited. Business blogs do not contain grammar or spelling errors and always have a logical order.

Make sure you include your website address on each post and archive them so readers can read previous posts. This will increase your popularity. You can also include keywords to help your blog expand its readership. Make sure keywords are added naturally and add them to the title of your posts whenever possible. Another way to increase your readership is to write a few articles promoting the blog. Submit to free article databases so your article is reposted on websites and in directories where readers will be able to find it.

A business blog can be a lot of fun to write. Readers can leave comments which increase the personal attention you can give to your customers.
