5 Reasons A Blog Is Must For Offline Business
In today’s world, more than 70% people begin searching online whether they need to buy a product or avail any service. Therefore, having a blog, even for an offline business, has become an essential element in business world.
There are many reasons to have a blog for your business. In case, you have not found one yourself, read the following reasons and I am sure that they will draw your attention to creating blog for your offline business.
1. Maximize Your Reach:
One of the most important factors to have a blog for your business is that it maximizes your business reach and brings new clients. On the other hand, if you wish to maximize your business reach in a traditional way, not only it will cost you a lot but also there is no assurance that your desired marketing goals will be achieved. In order to build a blog, all you need to purchase is a domain name (name of your website as of your business) and hosting. In case, you do not want to purchase, there are a lot of free-blogging platforms where you can build your blog for free –what else you need.
2. Free Marketing Experiments:
A blog for business will provide you with the opportunity of experimenting different sort of marketing campaigns and to measure their effectiveness. You can place promotional banners on your blog and see how your customers or visitors are reacting with your new promotional offer. In case, if it gets appreciated by your customers, you can implement it physically on a larger scale. If not, just remove it from your blog.
3. Get Referrals:
Having online presence does not only help you experiment marketing strategies but also getting referrals for free. How? Most of the online audience is likely to share anything they find useful. And, sharing over the internet is as easy as ABC. All one needs to do is to copy a web link and paste it to his/her profile to let social circles know that he/she has liked it.
4. Better Visibility:
In case, you think that building a blog for your business is waste because you already have pages and/or communities of it on different social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc, then it is the time to re-think. It is because most of the links or posts you share on your social media pages are not seen by your fans and followers due to their overcrowded timelines and if you want to get noticed by all your fans, then you have to pay those social media monsters some bundle of dollars to boost your post. Whereas, on the flip side, a post published on your blog does not need any money to be spent on it and will be seen by all your followers and subscribers.
5. Build A Reputation:
A blog for business gives your clients a strong reason to believe that you really know about your industry. Write something which they have not read before. All you need to do is to research and find topics that will interest your targeted audience. In case, you are a real estate agent, then it is not necessary to pile up your blog only with the inventories in your area. Give them reasons to buy that property.
Above reasons are enough to draw your attention to building a blog for your offline business and I am sure that you would notice a significant change in your business after setting up a blog for it.
