Blogging is one of the best ways to establish your credibility and authority, educate your community and build a personal connection with your audience all at the same time. When done right, blogging can help you grow your audience and encourage them to become lifelong customers with you.
Done properly, your blog will position you as an authority in your industry because it helps build the know, like and trust factor. Your audience will see you as someone who provides solutions to their most pressing problems and will trust you enough to buy your products and services.
Not having a blog can actually make it very hard for you to build your brand and your presence online.
Just remember that a blog is designed to be dynamic and work as a living, breathing extension of you or your business.
This is key because people online are usually searching for solutions to their problems, and therefore, blogging about the topics most relevant to your audience will increase your audience’s confidence in you, your products and services.
For example, if you sell skin products, your blog would have tips on looking after your skin and answer specific skin concerns while also recommending the products you sell.
Unlike a Web site which consists mostly of static pages, blogs have content which is regularly updated so the content is always fresh and relevant. Not only does Google love blogs which are always updated with great content, but it also gives visitors a reason to repeatedly return to you.
Plus, your audience can comment on your posts creating engagement and is an awesome way for you to build a relationship with them.
Hopefully, you can see why blogging is so important in helping you make more money – regardless of whether you’re just starting out or you already have an established business.
