How a Blog can Increase Sales for Your Online BusinessIf you have a small business, you probably already understand how crucial it is to have an online presence. Studies have shown how the world of commerce, marketing, and social interaction are all transitioning online, so there’s no reason not to be accessible on the Internet.

Once your online business is set up, you need something to continuously drive traffic to your site. Incorporating a blog into your business website can be one of the best investments you make. While it takes a lot of work and time for the results to show from blogging, the results are definitely worth it.

Why your blog will work

A blog is a low-cost (often free) form of marketing that can produce significant results such as long term relationships with customers and an increase in traffic. When you set up a blog, you can easily (and continuously) update content and publish it for your customers and viewers to see.

By having control over the content, you can update and inform your customers about new products, services, and promotions. Blogs are great because they can spread quickly across the Internet. So long as they have quality information that is worth the reading, you can gain and retain the attention of fleeting Internet browsers.

Blogs are also a great advantage to have when trying to optimize your website for search engines. Blogs are screened much quicker than entire websites by search engines and as long as you have some sort of call to action in your blog posts, it can drive people to your website with established interest.

Blogs also help with establishing customer loyalty. They can be very interactive. For example, a customer can pose a question or request, and you can recognize that in a blog post. This makes that customer feel important and recognized – adding to your credibility and building on your relationship with customers. You can even use blog posts to give your employees some empowerment, have them write posts once in a while so your entire company can be heard.
