Starting a blog can be fun or burdensome if you know exactly what you are doing. It can be fun if you have enough topics to write about and can be burdensome when you are not creative.
I often advice businesses to start a blog because it helps their customers know more about their products and services and read more about their business vision and purpose.
Main reasons why businesses need a blog
I will discus few top reasons why your business need a blog
Blogs gives you a platform to say more about your business. A lot of times customers know very little about the business but since blogs are updated often you can update your customers form time to time.
Blogs can be used by business to launch new products and services. Companies can update their customers on promotions, new products and services.
Blogs reveal the human side of the company. A lot of times people see businesses as a robot with no emotions but regular update about life in the company make people feel there are beings working in the company.
Should companies hire freelancers
One question that comes up when i suggest companies to blog is should the business hire a professional freelancer or get someone in the company to blog. It will be great to get a professional writer in the company to blog but if there is no one up to the task then its always better to hire a freelancer.
