Create Engaging Content For Small Business Blog
Hey, Mates, I hope you are all doing well. Today I am going to tell you about the Tips To Create Engaging Content For Small Business Blog. Now that you’ve decided on a blog host, it’s time to create the content for your business blog. But the first question is What type of Engaging content you should place on your business blog? you ask.
The type of content you display will depend on what products and/or services your business has to offer. For example, if you offer writing services, you may want to feature content related to the niche you write on the most.
This will show your readers you know what you’re talking about, and it allows you to show off your experience. Another example: If you sell software, your blog content could include simplified tutorials for using some of the software you sell.
Nevertheless, no matter what products or services you offer, your first blog post should be an introduction. In your introduction, discuss your experience, introduce your business, and let your readers know what to expect from your business blog.
Also include a link to your website as a way for your readers to contact you, in case they have questions about your products or services.
Other Content That Works Well With Any Small Business Blog Includes:
- News related to your business.
- Latest trends.
- The business advises you to share your knowledge and expertise.
- If you sell products, buying guides for the products you sell.
- Monthly or yearly analysis of your sales.
- Announcements about special offers and freebies.
In Choosing the Right Host for Your Business Blog, I discussed going with WordPress if you wanted to create extra pages for your business blog. So now I’m going to cover some of the pages you can create that will be beneficial to your business blog and hopefully increase your sales.
This page is much like your introduction post. Again, you’ll want to give information on your experience and introduce your business: How long have you been in business?
Do you donate a portion of your sales to a charity, and if so, what charity? What products or services do you offer? How can potential clients/customers benefit from your products or services?
Product or Services Page
If you’re in the business of selling products, feature some of your best selling products here. During the holiday season, you could feature products that make great stocking stuffers.
Include pictures and a short description of each product, as well as a link to buy the product. You can update this page as often as you like.
For those of you offering services, mention the types of services you offer, your rates, and include samples of your work.
When you have a sale, include the information about the sale on this page.
Every business blog should have a contact page. Through this page, you’ll give your potential customers or clients a way to contact you.
If you’re worried about spam bots, you can always place a contact form on this page instead of your e-mail. If you host your blog on WordPress, consider this contact form plugin.
Announce all your contests along with the details on this page. You could run monthly, weekly or yearly contests, and let your readers know when you’ll publish the details for that contest.
This page should include links to features, articles, profiles, and interviews about you and/or your business. You’ll also want to give details regarding your area of expertise,
and give members of the press a way to contact you for an interview. Let them know you’re willing to share your advice and be interviewed. These types of interviews could lead to free advertising in magazines and other publications.
“How does that lead to free advertising?” you wonder. Most likely the writer will quote you in their article, or they may write a profile about your business.
