NEW YORK, May 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Blogging on a frequent basis is a relatively easy, inexpensive way to enhance your inbound marketing efforts, drive traffic to your site, and attract prospective customers. It is an increasingly important opportunity that no small business owner should pass up, and yet many don't have a full understanding of why maintaining an active blog is an important aspect of their marketing strategy, and how vital it can be for the growth of their business.
Steve Lazuka, Founder of Interact Media and creator of the Zerys platforms, understands how business blogging is an effective marketing tool and he believes consistency is key to hooking your readers and having them come back for more. In the latest article posted to PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, Lazuka discusses the following ways to maintain quality content on your business blog:
- Running list. Whenever a great blog post idea strikes you, make sure to write it down. This running list of ideas can come in handy when running low on inspiration.
- Outline multiple posts. Lazuka suggests outlining multiple blog posts when you begin brainstorming topic ideas. Having an outline can eliminate the stress one feels when they begin to write a post from scratch.
- Come back to it. If you've completed a post set it aside for a couple of days and give it a thorough read once you've returned to it. Chances are that fresh perspective may offer insight that can help you to improve that particular piece of content.
- Link building. Ensure you are linking to old relevant blog posts and/or thought leaders who have also written on similar topics.
