Upgrade your website SEO, get more traffic and increase your sales.
Let's keep things honest and simple. We all know we should write more content. We know it drives traffic to our websites and can increase sales. It's generally a sure-fire way of building long term engagement without the need to spend on paid ads. The problem is there are so many questions and not everyone is really clued up on the answers.
- What shall we write?
- How often shall we write?
- What blogs will get the most attention
- How do I know if it's working?
These are all valid questions and each one deserves its own post to explain further and I will touch on these in later posts but in brief; Write what you feel adds value to your customer, business and product range. Does it inform, educate and answer important questions? Write as often as you feel comfortable. The more you write and the more you publish the quicker you will see the growth of your blog and site traffic. To test if it's working, use free traffic reporting tools like Google Analytics or paid services like https://moz.com/ or https://www.semrush.com/ that give you great insights into your traffic and customer behaviour.
High Traffic Blog Ideas
Here's a list of article ideas to get you started. Remember if you don't have the article on your site, then they will be reading it on someone else's, more likely a competitor. So do your research, find articles that rank highest in google and create a similar, informative article. Be careful not to duplicate or copy directly. This will harm your site more in the long term. So to the list.
