Maybe by this time in the Ultimate Blog Challenge you are starting to question why you started. This is a lot of hard work to write a blog every single day and there are days that you just don’t think you can think of one more idea or write one more intelligent word. Well, don’t give up, not yet! Let me give you an energy boost and point out a couple of more good reasons you should keep at it.
Blogging and marketing go hand in hand. Below you will read why you should blog and be involved in blog challenges and even the benefits of being a guest blogger.
Start a blog – It doesn’t matter what kind of business you are running, you can still have a blog. If you are going to create a blog for your company, you should do the following: Host the blog on your domain name (blog.domain.com or domain.com/blog), write good content, and don’t constantly pitch your company in your posts. Create a community by responding to each blog comment.
Blog challenges are great in marketing your blog as well as raising the numbers on your blog.
Make comments on other people’s blogs.
Become a guest blogger – An easy way to get your company out there is to write guest blog posts on other blogs. If you write guest blog posts on other blogs not only will you get traffic and more branding, but you’ll also get links which will help your SEO efforts.
So there you are. I know you probably knew all these things and just needed a reminder. So dust off your keyboard and get back to writing those blogs.
List your blogs below I would love to take a look at them.
