23 Aug 2018

Blogging... that stuff sounds easy right? Throw some words together, pop it up on your website and boom - SEO benefits abound!  In a perfect world, you never need to worry about coming up with consistently brilliant content ideas. However in reality, coming up with ideas regularly can be quite the challenge for marketers.

If you’ve ever had half decent SEO agency they have hopefully recommended keeping up with a well thought out blog. Even if you haven’t done SEO before you may have heard the press on how important blogs are for the modern day consumer.

The bad news is that the days of keyword stuffing are over and your blog actually needs to be filled with high quality, high value content that’s actually useful for your end users, for you to see real SEO benefits from it.

And if you haven't started already - you are officially BEHIND.

The good news though, is that when done right, blogging can generate REAL results. Alyka, we don’t like fluff so we won’t waste each other's time, here are the facts:

  • 47% of buyers viewed 3-5 pieces of content before engaging with a sales rep. (Demand Gen Report, 2016)
  • B2C companies that blogged 11+ times per month got more than 4X as many leads than those that blog only 4-5 times per month. (HubSpot, 2015)
  • Companies who blog receive 97% more site links than those who don't (HubSpot, 2010)
  • Companies who blog have 434% more indexed pages than those who don't. That means more traffic and leads! (Axxon Media)

Now, if you have ever been in charge of producing blog content, you will know that the struggle is real.. Keeping up with a blog on top of your already busy schedule can be a daunting task.

Even more-so if you don’t have a clear cut game plan to get the ball rolling. The modern day internet user requires a lot of TLC before caring about your brand and blogging can be an extremely powerful tool throughout the buying process.
