Great, you’re over the writing barrier now use your blog to increase business credibility.
Having a blog or news tab added to your websites navigation menu won’t do much for your business growth if you don’t keep it up-to-date and add fresh content. We covered some ideas on how to begin in an earlier post. Now it’s time to use your blog to increase business credibility by writing about what you know and you know a lot!
Blogging about things that are relevant to your customers is the way to go and with every post you write you will become a more and more credible source. Your advice regarding your products and services make you the authority and will make your readers quickly realise that you know what you are talking about.
Why are you blogging and who are you blogging to?
Decide why you are writing the blog. What is your purpose and what is the desired result of writing it. Who is your target, who are you writing to. When you are writing your blog posts it’s a good idea to know exactly who your audience is. This seems like a no brainer right but businesses often wear many hats and can have several sources they want to reach. Try not to get your targets confused. An example of this may be something like a factory that supplies raw materials and also end products.
Write with confidence about stuff you know
Writing a blog can build awareness of your business brand. The more people see your logo and images of your products the better they recognise you. Blogging and sharing your blog posts on social media is a great way to expose your brand and promote your expertise in your field. Sharing your knowledge about your products and services is a great way to engage with your audience. You can provide advice on how to use your products or you can add videos or supply recipes. The possibilities are endless.
Offering useful solutions to problems can promote that your business is helpful and reliable. Giving advice and support completely free develops confidence in the community. Not only does it grow your credibility, it creates tangible leads. Good will goes a long way!
