I write blogs. You should write blogs! Writing blogs are good for business. They can draw people into your website. You can create a following. And you can get new business all from a blog. But what do you write about? It is a struggle and it is real. Before you start writing, focus on who your target audience is. Who are they, what are they interested in what do they do for a living and for recreation? Do they have kids? What is their sense of humor and what is it that draws them into a conversation. You want your blog to be relevant and useful and to build positive awareness for your business. You want it to provide information, be valuable and to offer a new perspective. Your ideas should establish your expertise. They should drive engagement and traffic to your site and attract leads. So...Let’s begin writing a blog!
