Why Every Small Business Should Have a Blog

Before a customer calls or visits your local business, most people will visit your website looking for information or a specific product. Having a blog for your local business will not only give your customers helpful information, but it will also help establish a personality for your business and increase traffic to your website!

Not sure if your business should start a blog? Here’s some reasons why you should:

A blog provides a new channel of communication with customers

One of the best ways to get more eyes onto your website is to have continually updated, relevant content. Starting a blog for your local business can allow you to put out important information to customers, and also allow you to receive feedback. The biggest reason why people go online is to get information, not to buy a product. With a blog, and the right content, a local business can better communicate their products and services. For example, if people on your website want to know more about a popular service that your company offers, write a blog post about that!

It can improve your SEO

SEO stands for search engine optimization and is a process that affects a websites online visibility. Writing one short blog post won’t get you on the first page of Google search results, but it will improve your search engine rating overtime. Search engines reward you overtime for your content, and implementing the right tags. Blogging gives you more opportunity in the digital world!

If a website has a infinite amount of information, people will find the information needed and click of the site. With a blog, the business can release new information on a consistent schedule. The more you write-the easier it gets! Not sure where to start?
