Blogging is also good way to provide more information about your company, to explain your services and to feature the news about your company’s activities, such as promotions, new product launch, events you are organizing, etc. Having a blog is basically like having you own newspapers, that you can easily adapt to your needs and shape in such way that you can really benefit from it.
In terms of social media marketing, quality content is very important, as users are more likely to share that kind of content with their friends. Additionally, creating content helps you have material to share on your own social media accounts. If the content is of value, it is more likely to get users engaged, which ultimately leads to successful social media strategy.
Types of blogs
Blogs can be grouped according to several criteria, and topic is one of the most common one used. Blogs are usually focused on a single topic, which is related to a particular industry. This way, the blogger publishes content that is specialized in one specific area, and that is how one can build authority in that area. Thus, we have fashion blogs, teachers’ blogs, SEO blogs, fitness blogs, etc. The topic helps you focus on your target audience, rather than publishing random articles about unrelated topics. Not only does this help with building authority in a certain area, but it also allows you to focus on your target group exclusively, which is advisable thing to do if you want to create a loyal base of followers.
However, there are blogs that combine different topics into one, which take a form of an online magazine. For example, a town can have its own blog with various different topics related to the news and events in that town. A blog can cover different sections related to beauty, such as make up, hair, skin care, etc. With this type of blog, one can reach more people, as the blog content will attract larger target group than the blog that specializes in a single topic.
Company blogs are very popular type of promotion in internet marketing, as companies use this area to provide useful content to their potential customers, to present their services, and to ultimately convince visitors to become customers. Having a blog is also a good way for a company to increase website positioning through organic reach (SEO). Of course, the content of the company’s blog has to be closely related to the type of business the company runs and it has to feature the keywords that are used in the process of website optimization.
Personal blogs represent a type of blogs that feature content published by an individual, who usually specializes in one topic in which he or she is an expert. The benefit of this type of blog is that individual bloggers can be quite successful at using personalized approach and at establishing relationship with the visitors, which allows them to be considered as an authority and respected influencer in a certain area. If their blogging activity is accompanied by successful social media activity this enhances the overall influence a blogger can gain inside his or her community. You, as a representative of a company, can benefit from this type of blogs if you are able to persuade the blogger to recommend your business or if you are able to create a project where you could collaborate. Due to the blogger’s own popularity and influence, the recommendation can reach a large number of potential customers, which could be great exposure for your brand.
