Default Why You Should Have A Blog For Your Business

Like all online tools and applications, blogs started out as a tool and a toy for geeks. If you look at email, forums, html, and now blogs, they were all used by geeks for some time before businesses found a way to monetize them. Blogs have fairly recently become the next online tool to become indispensable to businesses.

Blogs started as VERY simple online applications for posting online diaries. Those diaries were used as personal diaries, political activists, amateur news reporters, and for anyone that needed a soapbox. Today, that has all changed, and with this article I’ll show you some of the reasons why blogs need to be a necessary part of your online marketing.

Its true that blogs are more used by geeks and it also helps alot in Online Marketing.

Blog submission is a part of off-page S.E.O and it's role is important in search engine optimization. Though this we can increase our website's traffic as well as search engine ranking.

I agree with this, however when you are starting your business it may just be a couple of people. It is a bit difficult to find the time to try and create a profitable business and also keep a blog up. Maybe one way would be to carefully think of topics and write 5 posts over the weekend, then post one each day of the week.

The only difficulty I have always found with blogs is that they are pretty costly to maintain and keep up. Providing decent content is very time consuming or very costly depending on which route you go. I think blogs are getting taken over by social media which is much quicker to update, more personal and more widely used. Blogs are still important to some businesses of course and even whole businesses have been made out of blogging but they have lost a lot of steam as compared to 3-5 years ago. Now it is really a combination of many many different marketing and interactive techniques that allow businesses to survive or become heavily promoted in a successful light. I will say I love my Google reader and all the blogs I have subscribed to so by no means do I think blogs are dead.
