Stop right there.
I don’t care if you’re an established brick and mortar business, an exclusively online business or a run-it-from-home direct sales business. All of these are businesses that would benefit from a blog on their website.
I know what you’re thinking. You don’t think you need a Blog because ________. (Insert the same excuses that everyone else gives) But you do need a Blog and I’m gonna lay it down for you, right now.
Wanna know why Your business needs a blog?
Here’s the deal. Blogs are big business and they are growing every day. The FACT is, a business with a Blog will generate more leads than its Blogless competitor/counterpart. Why? Because the majority of internet users read Blogs. To top that tidbit, consumers trust advice and information from Blogs.
If you skip out on having a Blog, you are just handing your business off to your competitor. Part of growing your business is staying relevant. You don’t stay relevant by ignoring the trends and best lead generators available.
I dish the facts:
During my research, I found some interesting statistics. Let’s examine the blogless business vs. the blogging business.
FIVE TIMES MORE TRAFFIC.
A business that blogs 20x per month (that’s just 4-5 blog posts per week) receives 5 times more website traffic than a business that blogs fewer than 4 times per month. Hang on. I think you need to say this part out loud. Consistent blogging on a business website will attract 5 times more traffic than its blogless (or infrequent) counterpart. That’s kind of a big deal. Seriously. If you’re a business owner that doesn’t have a blog, you should get one! Right meow…
Your business needs a blog. Unless you don’t want a 5x increase in your traffic…
A Blog will improve your SEO efforts!
Having a blog means increased SEO for your website. Your business blog adds more pages, more information and more images that get indexed by search engines. Meaning- your website will be one of the first things a potential customer sees when they search for related information on google (or other engines). That’s a big deal. SEO is the cornerstone of website traffic.
What does a blog do for your bottom line?
Well, since you asked… Consumers trust a bloggers advice. That in itself brings serious value to your website. But, what if I told you that blogging 4-5 times per week would bring you 4x more leads? It’s true. Companies that blog just 20 times per month enjoy 4 times more leads than a blogless business. FOUR TIMES more leads.
What would you do with 4x more leads than you have now?
As you KNOW, more leads = more growth = more revenue = a much healthier bottom line. But wait, THERE’S MORE! Those extra leads that are generated by your blog- they cost less than your current lead generating avenues. By adding a consistent blog with solid information, you can boost your customer base!
Why aren’t you blogging yet?
There can only be one answer to that question. You were unaware that blogging was your businesses’ new BFF. BUT, now you know. You can no longer ignore the fact that your business needs a shiny new blog. So, it’s time to stop procrastinating, time to stretch your blogging muscles and join me in the blogosphere. You’re gonna love it here.:)
