Did you just decide to jump off the cliff with the rest of the blogging herd and now you don’t know what to do? Big Red SEO has some answers for you! Blogging is easier than it sounds and our team of content writers have some tips for you so you don’t get stuck. First, it is important to know that a blog should be enjoyable to maintain while providing your expertise and experience in the field. We don’t want you to feel overwhelmed or stressed when writing a blog so take a few minutes and learn how to blog like a pro below.
Start out slow
When you first start to blog, start out slow. Make it a goal to post once a week. Then you can go on from there. However, the more you post unique and well-written content, the more the search engines will like you. See a headline in the news? Write about it! You can even write a few personal blogs about mistakes you’ve made in the industry. As content managers we have researched hours on end to find what people are really looking for in a blog. People are interested in reading blogs that blend the personal and the technical, so make sure you write your blog with a personable and conversational tone. After all, we are human!
Write about your expertise
Do you read any blogs regularly? Maybe like Big Red SEO! Why do they interest you? Take ideas from them, but do not copy! Putting duplicate content on your blog is a big no-no in the SEO world and tactics like content being copied can lead to your website being blacklisted. If you wish to provide a small percentage of duplicate content on your website, be sure to write in your own words what you liked about the article. Also, be sure to link back to the original source and even email the person saying why you agree or disagree with the post. At Big Red SEO, we have used these tips ourselves successfully and you can do the same.
Do you have infamous and exciting events within your company? Write a post about it letting your public know all about the occasion. If something interests them, they may begin to regularly follow your blog to find out more about you and your company. Isn’t the whole point of a blog to educate others on what you do and how you can help them?
Notice a Problem?
Have you or a coworker noticed a problem within the industry and set out to fix it? Why not write about the problem at hand and give some feedback about how you think it can be resolved? People will be intrigued that you are involved enough to notice a problem and they will especially be looking for the solution if it involves them.
Listen to your clients
Our content writing and web design team at Big Red SEO know it’s important to always take into account what your clients’ feedback is. You don’t have to agree with it, just listen. Give them a chance to give feedback via survey or phone call. Some may not think to give feedback if they had a pleasant experience, but any feedback is good feedback because you know what you should change or keep. Write about these things as well! Your public will want to know you are listening. Also, if they are confused about something, use a screenshot or film a how-to video. You can do all sorts of different stuff on your blog. The most important thing is to make it yours and be creative.
