SEO is one of the most critical factors for all business regardless of the actual business they are in. And a great way to increase your organic rankings is have a website that has regularly updated content that is appealing to your target audience.

A blog is a great way to publish new content to your website on relevant topics your customers or potential customer may be interested in. And the continual stream of new content is great for your SEO program.blogging-for-your-business

However one of the factors that hold many businesses back is, “I don’t have enough to talk about for a regular blog.” A great place to start for blog topics is what are the commonly asked questions you get. Perhaps you have an FAQ that you refer to regularly – each question can really be its own blog topic that will help your customers understand more about your business and your product.

Blogs don’t have to be pages and pages of technical information. They can be short, punchy, to the point and give interesting information to customers. Here are some examples of blog topics you could cover.

  • Use the frequently asked questions to develop a range of blog articles
  • New product news
  • Technical process update
  • Expanding the business
  • New uses for your existing products
  • How customers are using your products – case studies
  • Advise on how to better use your products
  • Behind the scenes on how your processes / products are made


And the list goes on.
