Blogging & Forums…How and Why for Your Business

Blog orangeLet’s face it, if you’re a business and you have no presence on the internet, you really don’t exist.  Consumers love to visit a company’s website.  It allows them to discreetly learn about you, your services and your brand.  But driving traffic to your website can have costs, including SEO (search engine optimization) and PPC ads (pay per click).  So, what are some free methods to drive consumers to your website?

Blogging is a great way to show your expertise and bring in traffic.  Somewhere on every blog entry, there should be a hyperlink directed back to your website.  There are many free blog websites that will allow you to share your knowledge, thoughts and ideas about your industry.  Many times you will have the ability to post a link in the footer of your company’s website, which will direct consumers to your blog.

Another technique to promote your website is on forums.  A forum is basically an open discussion board, which usually requires you to become a member of.  Did you know that every time a link to your website appears somewhere on the internet, it will increase your listed order on a search engine?  When you become a member of a forum, ensure a link to your website appears in the signature.  This means any response you make will contain one more link back to your website.  But be cautious, don’t post or respond on a forum with something you wouldn’t want associated with your brand and image.  Also, join forums that are relevant to your industry.

Remember, success won’t happen overnight, but taking the first step will lead you down the road to success.
