Are you are looking to increase traffic to your website and/or channels? Looking to inform your audience on specials, events, and updates? Need an easy way to connect? We have put together some reasons why blogging is essential to growing your online identity.
Blogging is key to growing traffic to your site
When you think of starting a new campaign to gain new traffic and expand your audience, what comes to mind? Do you think of Google AdSense? Facebook Ads? Instagram Boosted Posts? These are definitely great ways to gain some extra momentum when you are looking to boost your audience. In fact, these tools are staples in many marketer's "digital toolbelt." While good on their own, adding a supplemental blog will complement these marketing efforts greatly.
What if I were to tell you that (when done correctly and overtime) blogging can be just as effective as some of these methods. What makes blogging so vital to growing your web metrics? When asked, about 72% of marketers say that blogging increases engagement, according to the content marketing institute. That engagement is absolutely KEY to building a good strategy with your content. Impressions from an ad are always nice but engagement is where you truly start to see conversions. That means turning clicks into real customers. But how can you do this on your own project?
