Blog your Way to Giving your Brand a Voice with some Personality and Enhance the Customer’s Experience with Teachable Moments

In the digital world that we live in today, it is a Digital Marketing Manager’s responsibility to make a brand stand out. By blogging, a Digital Marketing Manager can help their brand stand out and give their brand a voice with a personality. A blog not only educates the brand’s consumers, blogs make your brand credible and enhances the customer’s experience with your brand.

Another compelling reason to start a blog is that search engines love blogs. With Google’s Hummingbird, many Digital Marketing Managers are concerned about how to optimize their content to land on page one of a Google search results page.  Well, let your blog be your savior.

Hummingbird concentrates on the long-tail keyword searches, and blog content lends itself to including long-tail key word phrases naturally.  Therefore, if Digital Marketing Managers consistently post relevant content about your brand on a regular basis, Digital Marketing Managers can help their SEO as well.

8 components to include in your blog posts

  • A SEO optimized title
  • A long-tail search keyword phrase
  • Conversational tone
  • Format should include lists and whitespace
  • Length of post should be 500 words or less
  • Create a call to action
  • Don’t make a sales pitch
  • Lastly and most important, a Digital Marketing Manager must make sure the audience learns something from each post

As a school girl, my father asked me everyday what I learned in school, and I usually said nothing.  Then, one day, I asked my dad why he always asked me what I learned in school.  He told me that every day where I did not learn something was a day wasted. Therefore, every post where your audience does not learn something is a wasted post and a chance to alienate your audience which could cause a Digital Marketing Manager to have nightmares.

If you aren’t yet convinced to start a blog, consider the following statistics about blogs from Hubspot:

  •  B2B marketers who use blogs generate 67% more leads per month than those who do not.
  • B2C companies that blog generate 88% more leads per month than those who do not.
  • 92% of companies who blog multiple times per day have acquired a customer from their blog.
  • 57% of companies with a blog have acquired a customer from their blog.
