First let me ask, does your company have a blog? It’s 2016 and blogging is one of the many ways companies can set themselves above their competitors. A company’s blog typically goes along with a product or service the company offers. Everyone wants to be an expert in their field and blogging is an excellent way to prove that.
A blog will not only place a company as an expert in their field, it will also drive traffic to their website. One blog post could lead to various purchases and leads from consumers! According to Hubspot, “Every time you write a blog post, it’s one more indexed page on your website, which means it’s one more opportunity for you to show up in search engines and drive traffic to your website in organic search.” Blogging will drive more traffic to a company’s site and boost their site’s search engine rankings at the same time.
With all this talk about blogging, I’m sure you’re wondering what makes a great blog?
