A Current Company Blog Means Someone is Home
Have you ever run across a website with an out of date blog? The site itself might look great, but if no one is taking the time to keep the blog current, then it seems as though no one is minding the shop. This can lead to customer unease or distrust, particularly if your website collects sensitive information like credit card numbers.
A Blog is Good for SEO
The search engines like well written, well optimized blog posts. The more posts a site has, the more posts the engines will pick up. This increases the chances that users will see the posts when they are searching for your particular product or service. More blog/website visitors mean more business.
A Company Blog Invites Interaction
Blogs invite customers to leave their thoughts and questions. This can give you insights into what people think about your brand in ways rarely possible before. Responding to these concerns shows visitors that they matter to your business and builds brand loyalty.
