Should Your Startup Business Start a Blog?

Business blogBuilding and continually adding posts to a new business blog may come across as a time drain, however, one has to seriously thonk about putting up a business blog it if you want your startup to have a strong presence on the Internet.  A blog can do wonders in ways that a busines website can’t on by itself. While a website is typically for displaying, promoting and selling products, a blog is utilized best as an bolt-on to your site, offering the potential to increase your visibility and likability—standout details of businesses that move the most leads to sales. At the same time, an updated blog is an good way to keep your website’s Seo highly concentrated. In other words, blogging can assist your preserve and make it so your site shows up at the top of searches.

While this is all a bonus, blogging isn’t for everyone. If you’re lacking time at your business and don’t have the exaxa time to blog consitently—at least once a week and even that is pushing it—it may not be smart to start one. Having a bad blog usually gives a even worse impression than not having one at all. It can make you look Non reliable even if you’re a great businessperson.

With that said, the benefits of an up-to-date business blog might be worth finding time to have one. If you think your business has any room for improvement whatsoever in the following areas, blogging might be the answer.

Credibility and Likability

Customers like doing business with companies known for their expertise. Credibility can be established in plenty of ways, the most obvious being consistent delivery of high-quality products and service. People will notice, and word will spread. But you can also gain business cred by offering customers something they want, that you have, for free: tips and information relevant to your industry. It’s pretty standard to blog about what your business has coming down the pike—soon-to-be-released products, events the company attends, etc. However, people also appreciate valuable blog content that’s not about you and your business, but the industry you serve. It shows them a few things. One, you’re knowledgeable about what you do. And two, you care about sharing tips, news and best practices with your customers—not just about selling them stuff.

That can attract new customers, and it’s good for your SEO.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Having a blog is often the easiest way to improve how high your website is indexed by search engines, as long as you make sure to do a few things: move the blog to your own web domain, and post regularly.

BLogging platforms like WordPress let you build a blog for free. However, if you really want SEO results, you’ll need to some capital  and host your blog on your own web domain. Search engines won’t find you very easily if you don’t do this. Plus, having all your sites on one domain is generally a rule of thumb if you care about SEO.

Key Points:

Now that you know how a small business blog can be useful, here are the big questions:

Are you confident in your level of knowledge about your industry? Are you comfortable with your company’s voice and personality? Do you have relevant content—tips, tutorials, photos, videos, industry insight, etc.—that you’re willing to share with customers? Do you want to increase SEO or does your site already index well? Are you ready to commit some time to blogging each week?

Your answers to these questions should help you decide if you’re ready to enter the best income opportuntity on the Net for small businesses.

Startup generates business with its blog

Blog

BlogBlogs are a extremely important part of any startup business but especially if your business is startup online. As with this business below, credibility is King when starting out online,

The common model in media is that advertising funds journalism. But what if journalism is the advertising?

Take San Francisco startup Priceonomics, which publishes articles on its website on a range of curious topics, from overpriced diamonds to Mission District gentrification. CEO Rohin Dhar says the goal is “to bring new information into the world” – a very media-company response.

Yet his company makes its money building data-crawling software, which it uses to collect information so businesses and hedge funds can make decisions about investments. Readers wouldn’t know it by visiting the Priceonomics website, which looks like a news blog. The only mention of its software is buried at the bottom of the page.

Recent articles touched on how James Bond introduced American society to its own CIA, why hotel room service is so expensive, and the workings of a “hipster music index.” The company, headquartered in the Mission District, has even waded into contentious San Francisco issues like evictions, rising rents and the underground “economy” of Dolores Park.

Priceonomics’ two full-time writers – not company analysts – try to publish a few times weekly. They often use internal research tools to generate story ideas and gather information for their articles, such as a recent market analysis of babysitting prices.

The articles don’t run with any advertisements and there’s no paywall providing revenue for Priceonomics.

Dhar, who can be called the blog’s editor, hopes the articles attract readers, some of whom notice the research that went into creating them. Those readers become prospective clients.

The blog has been an integral part of the company since it left the Y Combinator startup accelerator in 2012, and now leads to almost all Priceonomics sales, Dhar says.

Priceonomics’ foray into reporting fits into the category of “brand journalism,” in which corporations publish studies and opinions to keep their names in front of prospective clients, according to Alex Howard, a fellow at Columbia University School of Journalism. But unlike many in the field, the Priceonomics blog succeeds because it publishes stories that no one else has, he says.

It certainly isn’t the first business to harness its own products for journalism. Bloomberg, for instance, has long provided Wall Street data to clients but also used those tools for reporting through Bloomberg News.

It’s also not the only company that treats articles as a form of advertising. Some publishers sell sponsored posts, in which an advertiser – hopefully marked as such – creates articles, photos or videos for a news outlet.

Companies are increasingly leaning on their blogs to stay relevant online. Google and Twitter use corporate blogs to announce company news, effectively replacing press releases. TripAdvisor engages people on its blog with insights on travel trends from customer data. Analytics firm Renesys, security firm Incapsula and content-delivery network CloudFlare pen well-circulated blog posts on complicated questions about the technical happenings of the Internet. But these posts are within their areas of expertise.

So far, Priceonomics doesn’t appear to have constraints on the topics it covers – as long as they attract eyeballs.

The goal of any media company is to gain credibility so when it says something is true, readers can accept the information as truth. “It all comes back to editorial independence,” says Howard.

Using journalism as a type of marketing is an uncommon arrangement – but it could help keep Priceonomics honest. If the site were to publish a blog post with bad information, its paying customers might lose faith in the company’s tools, according to Dhar.

“If the posts are wrong, clients aren’t interested in doing business,” he said.

Because the company makes money on its analysis services instead of its journalism, its blog is a cost center, not a profit center. Were Priceonomics to move beyond needing a blog to grow business, would Dhar keep publishing articles?

“It’s something I think about,” he acknowledged, but “there’s no way I could conceive of Priceonomics without our blog.”
