A blog can be an important and sturdy foundation to your company's digital marketing efforts. Using a blog, you, as communicator, can spread information directly to your target audience by less formal means. Blogs are well-suited for pictures, video clips and other popular extras. In addition, a blog provides effective communication to customers who want to follow your latest news.
Wipe the sweat from your brow. You don't need any advanced programming skills or expensive IT consultants to start a good-looking and well-functioning blog. There are many different sites that make it simple for you to create a blog. We are going to focus on one of them.
There is a good chance you have already visited a number of websites and blogs based on WordPress. Maybe without realizing it. One of the biggest advantages of WordPress is the opportunity to customize the program and design so they fit with an individual company's needs, without fuss or high costs.
WordPress is a free program that makes it easy to create and maintain a blog or website.
Via WordPress you can custom-design your blog so that it fits your company's visual profile and communication needs. You can also purchase an upgraded version which allows you to personalize your blog or website even further.
A blog is an effective and less formal means to distribute information about happenings at your company. News that doesn't work in a press release can be published in a blog instead. Blogs work well to show pictures, videos and other materials.
Blogs are also a good tool for direct communication to your target audience. Through an open comment function your customers can openly converse and ask questions via your blog.
Some see the public comment feature as a negative, as you can potentially receive criticism. Try to see the opportunities instead. By responding to all comments, both positive and negative, your company can build trust with its customers through a public forum.
WordPress endeavors to make the process as easy as possible. The program has a user-friendly dashboard and comprehensive help and support services. The program has a start-up packet, which can be found at http://learn.wordpress.com.
When you feel ready then the next step is to create your own account. After confirming your email address, which will take no more than two days, you will be granted access to your dashboard.
Begin with designing your blog. Click on ”Appearance” and choose the theme you feel works best for your company. You can even upgrade and import your own design.
Then just to start publishing. Write a post, upload pictures, and link to your company's homepage or other websites and blogs. The more active you are the more readers you'll attract to your blog.
