Is Blogging Still Effective in Marketing?

In a word, YES. 

It’s no secret that today’s marketers are still struggling with the same challenge they’ve always struggled with… finding quality leads. 

One solution that continues to attract new prospects is content marketing. Content marketing is comprised of three types of online content:

  • Social Media Posts
  • Videos
  • Blogs

While social media allows you to target specific audiences and short-form videos provide an amazing ROI, blogs continue to be one of the most powerful tools for attracting qualified prospects. How powerful?

Companies with blogs generate 67% more leads every month than those without. 

That’s why blogging is the most popular piece of marketing collateral in marketing strategies, being used by 86% of marketers

So YES, content marketing is still very effective, but what are the benefits?

What are the Benefits of Blogging?

From driving more traffic to your site to establishing your industry authority, blogging provides numerous benefits to your marketing strategy. 

Drives More Traffic 

Each blog you post creates an opportunity for your site to be indexed and ranked in search engines. Regular updates to your blog with relevant content tell Google and Bing that your site is active and you are open for business. All of this leads to better rankings in organic search and more prospects being driven to your site. 

Establish Your Industry Authority

By consistently publishing high-quality content, you share your expertise, insights, and unique perspectives on topics that matter to your audience. This attracts readers and earns the respect of peers in your industry, helping you become a trusted resource for industry news, trends, and best practices. 

Build Audience Trust

Consistent blogging helps you connect with your audience on a more personal level by showing you understand their pain points and challenges. By providing value, honesty, and transparency in your content, you show authenticity and strengthen your bond with your readers. 

Reinforce Your Brand

A strong, well-defined brand is more likely to attract and retain customers, so let your posts reflect your brand’s voice, values, and personality. Combined with relevant content, you reinforce your brand, communicate your mission, and differentiate yourself from the competition. 

Provide Content for Social Media

Every blog you post is a goldmine for social media content. Repurpose the content into infographics, quotes, and snippets so you can keep your social media channels active and engaging. Not only does this attract more social media followers, but it drives traffic back to your blog (and your website). 

Convert Traffic Into Leads

By posting high-quality blog content, you can connect with your audience by showing you care about their challenges and offering solutions. When they trust you, it’s easier to convert them from visitors to leads with clear calls-to-action that encourage them to provide their contact details in exchange for exclusive content or helpful tools.
