Why Businesses Need to Blog?

Whenever I talk, write, consult, lecture, I can’t stress enough the importance of blogging for your company or brand. Believe me, it really pays off. I have seen it time and again. If you are still in doubt, here are some reasons to blog:

  • Create an image of an expert
  • Interact with clients and prospects
  • Improve search engine rankings
  • Spread the word
  • Talk about more than just products and services
  • Solve client’s problems
  • Build trust
  • Stay on top of your field
  • Build brand
  • Exercise your creativity
  • Put a human face on your brand
  • Proving ground
  • Foundation for social media activities
  • Differentiate from competition
  • Educate clients, prospects, stake holders
  • Increase traffic
  • Make money

And here is a real life screen shot straight from Google Analytics (points are weeks):
