As a small business owner you probably already know how important it is to maintain a healthy marketing presence. It is a surefire way to stay engaged with your customers and remain on the top of their list when it comes to your particular service or industry. A great way to promote your company is through a blog. In fact, it is one strategy that most marketing experts suggest is a key component for branding success.
But then why aren’t your customers reading your blog? You may be disappointed by the number of views your weekly blog has been receiving. It can be discouraging to spend hours writing a post only to have a handful of people read it. Before you pull the plug on your blog, try some new strategies to get those posts read!
First, start with a great title for your blog posts. Don’t make your title an afterthought. Consider it the selling feature that is “pitching” your article to others. If you want people to read your post they first need a reason to click on it. Here are some tips for creating better post titles:
Next, make sure to use original, well-written content in your posts. No one wants to read a post with grammatical errors and poor writing. And copying content from another website can get you on Google’s blacklist in no time. Keep your content original by writing about what you know – your industry. Use personal stories, industry-related headlines and even “how-to” type articles to keep your posts fresh and interesting.
Lastly, add links to your post anywhere you can. In order for people to read your post they need to be able to find it. Most customers aren’t going to take the time to check on your website for the latest article. You need to remind them that they are there. Add links to your post on many different social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. You could also send out an email newsletter promoting the post or even “pin it” to your Pinterest board. The more people given an opportunity to view the post the better.
