  • Why do you need a Blog?

    1. Attract an Audience

    Blogging enables you to reach the billions of people that use the Internet. Blogging can help you promote yourself or your business. Blogging works as a method for attracting an audience because it provides something of value to them before asking for anything in return.

    What would you rather click on, a page titled “How to Promote Your Blog“, or a page titled “Buy My Consulting Services”? By creating a blog that is of value, you can attract an audience and eventually convert them to customers, partners, friends, or otherwise.

    2. Build Rapport and Engagement

    Blogging can convert traffic into leads and leads into customers. Blogging can “warm-up” your cold calls and traffic from other sources. If someone receives your cold call, they may be more receptive if they’ve read your blog and received value from it.

    3. Create Opportunities

    Blogging can lead to other business/traffic generating opportunities. For example, speaking engagements or press. I’ve had people contact me to speak at conferences who found me through my blog. Blogging enables anyone with something interesting or valuable to say to be identified as an expert.

    4. Organize Your Thoughts and Learn

    Blogging forces you to teach yourself what you don’t know and to articulate what you do know. When you begin writing a blog post, you are forced to organize your thoughts. If there are any gaps in the topic that you are writing about, you will have to learn about it. Writing out and articulating your thoughts is a great way to internalize something you’ve learned or experienced. Writing helps you become more familiar with the topic you’re writing about.

    5. Tell Your Story

    Blogging enables you to be your own media company. You can tell your story the way you want to tell it without being dependent on journalists. When you are writing about a topic of your own interest, you can decide how to portray a story, what information to include, and what information to exclude. Blogging allows you to ensure that all information included in the blog is factual.

    6. Meet New People

    The audience you attract through blogging doesn’t have to just be your “audience.” They can become your friends, colleagues, partners, or lovers. I’ve had many people reach out to me directly after reading my blog. Some of those people have become friends or good business contacts.

    7. Stand Out

    According to “the 1 percent rule,” only 1 percent of Internet users actively create new content, while the other 99 percent of the participants simply view it. By blogging, you separate yourself from the 99 percent of people that don’t blog. Standing out is essential in an increasingly competitive economy.

    8. Validate Expertise

    Blogs are the new resumes. Blogging about a topic you would like to be viewed as an expert in, can illustrate to readers, employers, and your network, that you are are skilled and knowledgeable.

    9. Make Money

    If you have a blog with a lot of readers, there may be opportunities to monetize. In today’s economy, being diversified and having additional sources of income can be tremendously beneficial. If you are working a job that doesn’t pay as much as you’d like, or if you would simply like to earn more money (who doesn’t?), blogging can make for a great side income.

    Income generated from blogging can also be “passive,” meaning it can be automated and is not directly correlated to the amount of time you put into it.

  • Why do you need a Website?

    Having a website will attract new customers to your business and make you more money.

    If you don’t have a website, you have no chance of capturing a share of this market. 

    Your website can be available 24/7/365 even when you’re not.

    A website acts as your “always-on” business advocate during and outside of office hours.

    1. Websites help you convert more of your existing referrals

    Because most people still do their own research and stack you against your competitors.

    2.  Add instant credibility to your business simply by having a website.

    Having a good website instantly boosts your credibility as a legitimate business.

    First impressions count, and websites allow you to make a very strong impression with a well-designed introduction for your business.

    A website can help showcase your expertise and better position your business. A website can be your number one tool for standing out in a crowd.

    3.  It’s not as hard, or as expensive, as you think.

    You don’t need to be tech-savvy to get a website.

    Many web development companies have very simple signup processes which make the process quick and painless for you.

    It can be very cost-effective.

    Websites offer a better return on investment than any other form of advertising.

    If you’re planning to market your business, a website should be your first priority.

    Over time the relatively low investment of getting a business website will pay dividends by driving you new customers and building your brand.

    Plus, it’s a legitimate business expense and a tax write off.

    4.  Having a website will end up saving you time.

    Whether you’re trading emails, taking calls, or sending out proposals – communicating with potential customers takes time.

    Your website can save you that time by providing answers to common customer questions and inquiries.

    What does this mean for you? You can spend your time doing more valuable things.

    5. Position yourself and stay in control of your brand.

    A website acts as a platform for your messaging and shapes the online perception of your business in a way that your social media channels cannot provide.

    The platform allows you to position yourself in the market to get the exact type of customers you’re looking for.

    Many business owners have been reviewed online, sometimes unknowingly and/or negatively.
