Do You Know if Blogging is Right For You?

Blogging

Having a blog is a great way to communicate with your target audience or customers.

It is easy to provide valuable content via a post, video, or podcast to your readers.

Most blog post are done informal since you are communicating with your audience. What I like about blogs it allows you to penetrate just about any niche market without having all of the experience of HTML or web development.

One of the benefits of owning a blog it allows you to build relationships with individuals you wouldn’t have meet.

I must add that even though it is pretty simple to start a blog. Most don’t realize that it requires maintenance. Because of the maintenance a blog isn’t for everyone. That is why I put this list together so you can determine if having a blog is right for you.

The number of abandoned blog is surprisingly high.

Is Blogging Right For You

Pros:

  • Blogs are very simple to add content and keep it current
  • Blogs can be used to provide your audience with the latest information
  • You can rank for keyword-rich content for SEO marketing
  • You can update your blog from anywhere there is internet
  • You can brand yourself and establish yourself as an expert in your field
  • You can syndicate your blog with RSS feed allowing a much greater readership

Cons:

  • You must update your blog constantly: A minimum of 3 times per week
  • You must provide new content to make it worthy for your readers to revisit
  • You have to find time to update your blog most likely on your own personal time
  • Most of the time when updating your blog you can use it towards something more productive
  • Most underestimate the time of updating a blog
  • Generating traffic just doesn’t happen on its own. You have to study generation traffic methods.

By now I’m sure you understand that blogs is a great way to target audience and generate leads for your business. But I like to tell new individuals that are thinking about online marketing for their business that it requires dedication.

Yesterday’s post I wrote about the importance of having a mentor. When developing a blog for business purposes that is when your mentor will help out with setting a plan to succeed.

To Your Success,
