Did you know… The average number of new blog posts published on WordPress per month is a whopping 70 million. That makes the competition to get eyes on your content enormous. Is there any point in blogging, I mean, does anyone actually read blogs anymore?
Today’s stat from Impact suggests yes! With a massive 77% of internet users regularly reading blog posts.
Adding a blog to your website and regularly adding informative posts is good for your business. Using blogging as part of your marketing plan is a great way to reach existing or potential customers. It will help increase traffic to your website, increase trust in your brand and expand the reach of your business online.
So, are you frequently creating blog posts, or is blog writing something you struggle to keep up with?
Keeping your website regularly updated with fresh, unique content is a practice highly regarded by Google. If you’re in a highly competitive industry and have the time and resources, your business could really benefit from posting 2-3 times a week. Because blogging can help you stay one step ahead of your competition, so keep these tips in mind when you create blog posts:
📌Add as much value to your blog post as possible. People don’t read blog posts just to be entertained, they are looking for solutions to specific issues. Answer industry-related questions that it’s not always easy to find answers to and provide answers in a straightforward way, avoiding complicated jargon.
📌 Ensure your content is easy to skim read. Break your text up into easy-to-digest chunks using headers and sub-headers, short sentences and short paragraphs, bullet points and numbered lists.
📌 Keep readers engaged by adding visual content (images, embedded video or audio.)
Maintaining a consistent approach to your blog strategy will help support your SEO campaign. Let’s explain how it works:
By blogging regularly, you have more pages for the search bots to crawl and therefore stand more chance of showing up on search engine results pages (SERPs).
