What is Business Blogging?

Business blogging retains all the attributes of “regular” blogging but adds a tasty layer of marketing plan. It helps marketers drive traffic to their website, convert that traffic into leads, establish authority on specific topics, and drive long-term results. (Learn about these benefits in more detail here.) When blogging for a business, marketers should create optimized posts with keywords that their target audience is searching for and provide helpful, educational material to these readers. Typically, these blog posts should be actionable (by providing an opt-in, downloadable offer) to provide a metric for the effectiveness of the business blogging.


For example, let’s consider a software company that develops project management tools. They might create a business blog where they publish articles on topics such as project management best practices, productivity tips, case studies of successful projects, or updates about new features in their software. By providing valuable and informative content, they can establish themselves as thought leaders in the field, attract potential customers searching for information related to project management, drive traffic to their website, and increase sales of their software products.
