Business Weblogs: Voice Your Niche
Business weblogs are a quick and easy way to bring traffic to your website while building your reputation as an industry leader.
It can be hard to break through the noise of hundreds or thousands of websites trying to win the business of your target market. One way to make your site stand out is to add a weblog devoted to your niche, written by an expert in the field: You.
Newly created content is a key way to encourage search engine rankings (which garner new visitors) and earn repeat visits from those that have found your site useful. Weblogs (or blogs) are a website format that encourages bite-size posts, arranged chronologically (newest first). They are most commonly known in the political and personal arenas; but there is room to expand the definition into many other topics.
For example, if you are a doctor specializing in treating migraine headaches, your weblog could focus on the latest research in your field, and your own personal observations. People searching online for information on migraine headaches may find your site's weblog and then contact you when they are ready to receive treatment. Here's why:
· Weblog posts are one-sided. You are presented as an expert, writing about content with which you have experience and passion.
· Weblog posts are written regularly, sometimes even daily. This allows potential customers to build confidence in you, through your writing style, without a face-to-face meeting.
· Weblogs can gain influence in your industry. As an expert, others in your field will turn to your writing. The respect of your peers will turn into more referrals, more professional opportunities, and more customers.
It's important to note that weblogs can take many forms. In fact, our series of articles for website owners could be considered a weblog. The same could be said for our news section.
