If your business is like most, there is no shortage of potential competitors that provide similar products and services to what you offer. One effective way of setting yourself apart from the competition is by starting a company blog.
A blog can help your business in a number of measurable ways. First, even if two companies make a similar product, no two companies are identical. A blog gives your company an opportunity to show what sets you apart and makes you different from your competitors. The practice of creating regular blog posts, in itself, has the added benefit of developing and displaying your expertise in your field. Also, a blog can improve your search engine optimization. This will allow your site to be found more easily by potential customers, without having to pay for additional marketing.
One of the most important things a blog can provide for your company is a continuous line of communication between your business and your customers. Periodically checking in with your customers and letting them know what is new with your company, or maybe letting them know about an interesting development in your field will keep you in the minds of your customers. This makes them more likely to give you repeat business when the need arises, or recommend your business to a friend.
Additionally, a company blog can tie in nicely with any social media platforms that your company may use. Regular blog posts can provide you with a steady stream of material for social media posts, and conversely your social media can drive traffic to your blog. This combination can be particularly effective for small business trying to build stronger relationships with their customers.
