This is a local marketing blog. I use it to share my knowledge, experience, and voice my opinion about marketing.
So, where’s your blog?
If you own a local business, it’s a good idea to have a blog. And it’s FREE. You love free stuff, right? And here’s a good reason for YOU to have one aside from your website… It will help you come up more often in Google searches!
Let’s say you write one blog post once a week or once every two weeks. Pretty soon you have a nice handful of content floating around on the web. Lots of words in your content that people might type into Google. And your blog posts don’t have to be long. Just make sure you’re providing some valuable content. Give some tips and advice. Tell a story about you or one of your employees. Heck, tell lots of stories in your blog posts, people love stories!
Why not set up your own local blog? It’s free and it’s going to help you get found online more often. And don’t be intimidated …it’s pretty easy to get started. You could use a wordpress.com blog or a blogger.com blog or any other respectable blogging site.
If you have a question about it, post it here …or just start poking around on the internet. There is a ton of helpful information out there. Good luck!
