Blogging is a great way to get your brand out there and get customers interested and engaged but is blogging enough for content marketing?
A lot of people tend to simply write a blog and then do nothing with it after they’ve uploaded it. A blog can do so much more for your content marketing so here are our 5 tips to get more out of your content marketing.
It can be frustrating slogging away crafting great content if no one is reading it. Trying to get readers to your blog can seem like a major challenge in itself.
The strategy you take to increase your blog readership will depend on the purpose of your blog but here I have listed the five most basic ways to get readers to your blog, whatever your motive for blogging.
(Sidebar-blogging can help your business in some major ways. It can be a business in itself if your blog really takes off.)
Let’s have a look.
Blogging helps your business grow. That is a fact. It is one of the most important things you can do to bring the right traffic to your website.

There is bad blogging and good blogging though. The first, you talk only about your business and services, the blogs are short, boing, technical, uninspiring etc etc. And they aren’t optimised.
The good kind of blogging helps your business in lots of ways, but let’s look at five.
If you’re a business owner or a marketer thinking about working with a blogger you need to be sure you ask the right questions before hiring them so you can ensure you’ve got the right person for your blog. But what should you ask a blogger before you start working with them so you can be confident they’ve got what it takes?
I don’t remember when I first heard the word blog or blogging, however, I do remember back then it was a ‘weblog’ before it was truncated to blog and I remember it was something that people did in their spare time and was something of questionable value.
So you’ve employed an SEO Copywriter to start producing blogs for your website in order to boost your website’s traffic, and thus get you more new customers.
Good move; you’re already on the right step to grabbing those top rankings for your keywords on Google!
But how can you tell if the blogger you’ve employed to write your blogs is any good? Well, luckily for you, there are a couple of key benchmarks that will help you tell whether your SEO Copywriter is da bomb, such as whether or not your blogs are uploaded on time, whether the spelling, grammar and punctuation is correct, and whether your copywriter is writing about the type of subjects that will interest your audience.Read more
It’s a very good question isn’t it?!
I’m an SEO Copywriter by trade (or, at least, I was, before I became the MD of GrowTraffic…now I’m the MD who tries to do some SEO Copywriting when they let me!), and so writing blogs is one of the things I like to do bestest of all.
In fact, if you just left me to my own devices, I’d sit here and write blogs all day long.
“But why?” I hear you cry! What’s the point of all this blogging? What purpose are you serving the universe? Why do it to yourself?
Well my young Padawan, I shall tell you.Read more
Are you singing the song yet? If you’re not, you should be! Aretha should be blaring out in your ears as loud as possible. Go on, sing it loudly. Let that woman stare at you.
OK, that’s enough. Don’t get carried away.
Because, difficult as it is to believe, I’m not just writing this blog post as a tribute to the late, great Aretha Franklin. Although I probably should be; she deserves it.
But no, on this occasion, I’m writing about the fact that we, the GrowTraffic dream team, are a group of four women, fighting our corner in a very male dominated world. We’re independent women in SEO. And we love it. Read more
