Business Blogging

You know you need to be blogging, but you’re busy running your business. Maybe you don’t have the time or desire to write. Or you don’t know how to install a blog. The good news is you don’t need to know how to make it happen.

Most business owners do not write content for their own blogs. And writing is not the only aspect of blogging that is important. On blogs like this one, I spend as much time doing all these tasks as I do writing:

  • Formatting the content for visual appeal and easy skimming
  • Creating or finding the perfect images and resizing them for fast loading
  • Making sure each image has alt-text, titles, and possibly captions and links
  • Watching many videos to choose the most relevant and acquiring embed codes
  • Filling in the SEO fields, categories, and tags

Is there anyone in your company that knows how to do all that? Some companies buy content, but they aren’t experienced at taking that content and creating a compelling blog post. There is an easier way.

Blog Management Services

Many of us have been blogging for over eight years. We have a Blogger Mastermind group I use to identify talent I can recommend. Sarah Harris specializes in content marketing and recently launched WriteCollective.com.

  3. Using a blog for the company I\’ve worked with was a easy way to communicate and learn what fans wanted from us and the products we had. Since we were in the tourism industry, it was quite nice to get the feedback from our clients through our blog, we could develop further and keep those people more attached with us and our offers.But some companies don\’t have employees that do the social media and could use the WriteCollective.com service. I do know a dozen of firms in RO that would badly need some good articles.

  11. A lot of businessmen that I talk to are intimidated by blog writing, fearing that one day, they will dry up and not be able to find anything to write about. After three years, we are still going strong, but for those of you worried out there, these tips are great. And you do need a blog on your business site

  12. Blog writing is very beneficial for large and small businesses alike. The problem is, a small business owner might not have enough time in the day to sit down and write a blog at least 3-4 times a week, or they might not be tech-savvy to be able to do it themselves. Sometimes there might be a language barrier. If that\’s the case, you may be better off outsourcing blog writing to a professional like WriteCollective.Blogging may be more beneficial in some industries than others but generally it can always help to some degree t least. Thanks for sharing Gail!
