Find out why and how to create a professional blog orcompany which will bring you more customers.
Blogs have often been mistakenly considered as diaries in which bloggers share their feelings and emotions or as a sharing of travel photos usually accompanied by long descriptions of places visited.
But the professional blog has now become a major asset for companies in order to attract new customers.
In this post, you will discover why to create a business blog and what you need to know to go about it.
Why create a business blog?
There are several reasons why a company should create a blog for its site. A business blog allows the latter to easily promote its products/services to customers who are looking for them.
More concretely, when a customer is looking for a detergent for his salon, for example, the article of a cleaning equipment company can appear on the first page of the search engine.
When the prospect clicks, he has access to an article that lists the best detergents for a salon of his type and also the ideal cleaning tool (which the company obviously sells) for this type of detergent. The company in this scenario is more likely to sell its cleaning tools to the customer.
The corporate blog is an opportunity for the latter to train customers in the use of their products and demonstrate their expertise.
In the rest of this post, we will give you the ingredients you need to implement it.
How to create a professional blog ?
Before getting into the heart of the matter, we must first distinguish between a website and a blog.
What is the difference between a website and a blog?
As announced above, the blog has a very specific interest: to inform. And the topics are vast!
The goal is simply to publish tickets, that is to say articles on a specific subject. It is important to stipulate that the tickets must have a link with what you are selling, you cannot publish articles on nuclear power if your website offers gardening equipment for sale.
The blog's mission will be to feed your website, thanks to its content, in order to attract new potential customers thanks to better referencing.
What is natural referencing?
Le natural reference is an optimization that aims to make your website appear in the best results offered by search engines (in this case Google, whose market share is more than 85% in France).
But a good SEO does not happen by itself!
To gain visibility and ensure regular traffic on your website, several essential points must be addressed such as the internet mesh, the content, but also the popularity of the site thanks to sharing on social networks, the opinions of Internet users and the sending e-mails to your customers in order to continue to retain them.
The creation of a blog for your company must precisely continue to maintain this bond of hook between you and your customers. A popular blog, which is often fed with targeted quality content, will necessarily bring in new orders.
How to create a business blog?
First you will have to define an editorial charter which will be the pillar of the writing of your blog. This will have to define the objectives and the strategies put in place as well as the visibility of your site compared to those of your competitors.
After an in-depth analysis of these different elements, you will have to explore and define your editorial line by selecting the themes you wish to address and the audience to capture.
Also consider going through a specialized site to creating your professional logo if it hasn't already been done.
A good quality and original logo will help people remember your site more easily and promote your brand identity.
Another crucial step awaits you: writing!
This takes time, and not everyone acts as an editor.
We strongly advise you to call on specialized writers, who master the techniques SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and who will be qualified to improve the natural referencing of your site by producing quality articles.
If you can't afford the services of a copywriter right now, think about specific topics that might interest you and make you buy the products you sell.
In other words, put yourself in your customer's shoes!
Deciding to create a business blog is therefore not a decision to be taken lightly and constitutes a real challenge. More than just a showcase, the professionalism of your content will become a major asset for your customers.
