Blogging News & Advice…

Marketers who prioritize blogging are 13x more likely to achieve a positive ROI from their efforts.
Most of the potential benefits from blogging materialize only if marketers prioritize it. Content marketing success rarely, if ever, happens by accident.

53% of marketers say blogging is their top content marketing priority.
One of the top digital marketing trends of 2019 is blogging done right—the results will make you good money. Between lead generation, brand awareness, SEO, and thought leadership, there are few areas of marketing that don’t benefit from blogging. A majority of marketers, in fact, consider this a more effective tool than several other traditional forms of digital marketing.

According to LinkedIn, the top 3 content marketing tactics are blogging (53%), social media (64%), and case studies (64%).
Every time an authoritative website links to a blog post (or any page), your entire website reaps the SEO benefits. Many businesses now use blogs to attract links easily with high-quality, engaging blog content.

Companies that blog receive 97% more links to their website.
Marketers should prick up their ears with this one. Trends in digital marketing show that if you have a regularly updated blog, with relevant content, on your company website, you are almost twice as likely to be linked by people.
B2C companies that blogged 11+ times per month got more than quadruple as many leads as those that blog only four to five times per month.

According to the same report, B2B companies that blogged 11+ times per month had almost three times more traffic than those blogging once per month or less. The gist is that if you are not blogging regularly, you are missing out on a big chunk of potential customers.

B2B marketers (67%) are more likely to use blogs in their social media content than B2C (56%).

These B2B marketing trends will doubtless impact 2019 marketing strategies. The likelihood of blogging becoming part of a business’s marketing strategy is even greater in B2B commerce than it is in B2C. We can see in other statistics about blogs in the B2B ecosystem that the nature of buyers and their information expectations are more aligned to blogging than many other forms of marketing.
78% of B2B buyers use case studies when researching purchases.

The most tangible way to link your business to a buyer’s need is to show the awesome results similar companies get when they choose your products or services. Digital marketing trends show that these case studies tend to be the preferred information gathering tool for a very high number of B2B buyers.
57% of B2B buyers make their purchase decision before ever speaking to a salesperson.

Marketing Efficiency – Why you should take time to blog…

In this ever increasing world of innovation, technology and social media there are many options for business owners and marketers to use for promoting their business, products and services.

Social Media Marketing 

Social media is a very popular medium for doing this but there are so many social media channels that it can be difficult to choose which ones to use and how much time to spend on each one.

Social Media Marketing issues

There are also issues with login in and out of all of the social media channels and accounts that you have which can also be time consuming and problematic.

And worse still, all of this is set against a back drop of hyper competitiveness for most businesses, especially those in saturated markets where the need for optimal operational efficiency grows greater and greater each day.

Social Media Automation

Many people turn to social media automation tools such as Buffer and Hootsuite to help them improve their marketing efficiency and I myself have done this in the past and still use them from time to time, but I have found blogging to be a much better way.

Social media automation tools cost, and usually have some sort of limiting factors to your posting and scheduling.  There are also large steps ups from a small business user to a large agency users with very little in between for the business that is rapidly expanding and diversifying and expanding their social media portfolio but certainly not of Agency size and budget (just yet).

Also social media automations tools are just that, social media tools and marketing is a lot more than just Social Media Marketing.

So the reason why I blog, and why I teach blogging and recommend blogging to the world with lots of blogging articles including this, “why you should take time to blog” article is because I find it to be the best Social Media automation tool around but it comes with so many more marketing benefits and additional marketing efficiency benefits.

Blogging Platforms

Before I cover the so much more, I need to explain something in a little more detail.  Not all blogging platforms are the same and provide the same marketing and marketing efficiency benefits. I have tried tumblr, blogger and WordPress as well as other web design and build platforms that have built in blogging platforms and as yet, I have only found WordPress to have a built in social media automation feature – social sharer.

Therefore the reason I use WordPress and recommend WordPress and in fact only build websites using WordPress is for the social media automation feature and built in marketing efficiencies.

The social media sharer or automatic post and share feature saves time.  With other blogging platforms you have to post your content,  grab the link and share it around your social media universe whilst creating posts and titles etc. which can be quite time consuming, maybe even taking up half an hour or so per post.

Posting the same content via WordPress which is already linked and set up to all of your social media universe (or a large portion of it) and automatically creates the posts and titles can in comparison take just a few minutes.

People say to me “that they can’t find the time to post” but I say; “I can’t find the time not to post”.

Some marketing efficiency and social media automation has been covered but what are the other marketing benefits I hear you cry?

Free Social Media Automation!

Well we already covered the fact that Social Media Automation tools cost and one of the great things about blogs, especially WordPress blogs, is that they don’t. They all have free versions although do have paid for options as well.

Extra Google Traffic Benefits

The other great things about blogs is that you post the content on to the internet and get SEO and Keyword benefits that you just wouldn’t get with social media automation.

Website Benefits – SEO

If posting on a website you improve your own ranking in the search engines and spread of keywords and content that you can get found for and if posting on a deprecate blog site you get to build up the value and domain authority of a completely separate domain.

Join the Largest Blogging Community in the World and be inspired and build contacts…

Also if blogging on WordPress you are also part of their global blogging network, the largest in the world and can follow and take inspiration from this blogger network or blogger community as well as network with these other bloggers and build your own following!

Summary

So there we have it, to improve on Social Media Automation, to gain many additional marketing benefits and to improve on the marketing efficiency of your business are the reasons why I blog and the reasons why I recommend that all business owners or marketers should take the time to blog.
