Content Strategies for Business Blogging

This article is part three of a ten part series by Wishpond. We explore the business benefits of blogging, and how it can help your online marketing efforts.

To increase your blog readership - create strategic themes based on your business, brand, and  target markets.

Determine themes that will support your goals to:

  • show your industry leadership

  • drive traffic to your website

  • develop better customer relationships

Defining your overall topics and keeping it consistent gives you a focus for your writing. As a fellow content marketer/ blogger, believe me, this will help you come up with ideas for what to blog.

Some general content themes include:

 

  1. Solutions for common problems

  2. News updates about your company, product or industry

  3. Ways to make life better

  4. Points of interest

Integrate these general themes with topics relevant to your overall business marketing strategy.

Wishpond, for example, is a company that makes easy to use social marketing apps. Our blog is about Online Marketing, Social Media Marketing & Ecommerce.

Combining our marketing strategy with the general themes, we create our blog post topics.

Examples of our blog posts include:

  1. Solutions for common problems.

Example: case studies and tips of successful social media marketing companies
