What is blog marketing? Well, the term “blog” comes from a combination of the words “web” and “log”, which used to be known as a “weblog”, and now is just known as “blog”. There are many different types of blogs, such as personal blogs, advice blogs, cooking blogs, fashions blogs, and business blogs. The purpose of blog marketing is to reach a business’ target market through the use of their blog. Today, blog marketing has become very popular for businesses to integrate into their marketing tactics. The blog is intended to draw people onto your company’s site through the topics of your blog. The purpose of a blog makes it ideal for marketing since they provide new content that brings people back and offers a way for clients/consumers and businesses to interact. Here are just a few of the benefits blog marketing provides.
1. No Cost
Blog marketing has little to no cost, which is an excellent way to save money, while still marketing. This way, you have more money to spend on other marketing campaigns that won’t break the bank.
2. Bring People Back for More
Blogging is a great way to bring people back to your site. Offering advice and valuable information is an incentive for your target audience to keep returning to your company’s blog/site for more.
3. Show Off
Clients like to know who they are doing business with and what expertise they have. Blog marketing is the perfect way to let clients know that your company is an expert at what they do. Providing tips and helpful information to your clients makes them feel more comfortable giving their business to you.
4. Build a Connection
Using a blog as a way to connect to your clients is imperative for your business. Most businesses use Twitter and different social media platforms to connect to their clients, and often forget about the power a blog has. While it is still okay to use other social media outlets, don’t forget about your blog and what is means to your clients.
5. Bring in Potential Clients
Just like building a connection with your clients, this is a great opportunity to bring in some potential leads. Once a potential client has read your blog, they are more likely to search around on your website and become more knowledgeable about what else you offer. If they were drawn to your blog in the first place, there is most likely something you can offer them.
