28 Apr Best Practices for Business Blogging
When the term ‘blog’ first came about, it was a new concept on the internet and was a widely informal practice of writing down one’s thought in a diary-type style. Originally used in the late 90’s, a ‘weblog’ was simply a way to put information on the internet in chronological order and was often a personal endeavor by a single person. How times have changed!
Many businesses have a blog section on their website and because you’re reading this, you’ll see that Screaming Teapot Media is no different. Blogs are now commonplace amongst different sectors in a variety of industries and are a superb way to convey information to your customers in simple bits of useful dialogue.
In order to maintain a successful blog, what should you be doing?
- SEO – Search Engine Optimization. These are the keywords that search engines pick up, so make sure you have plenty within the blog that relate to your business.
- KISS – Keep it short and sweet. No one likes to read a long blog! 300 words or less is what you should be shooting for with most posts.
- Social Media – Post visual, engaging content to your Facebook or Twitter accounts on a regular basis
- Know Your Audience – Your posts should be relevant to your business and explore topics that are of interest to your clients and followers.
