Blogs boost business. Most business Web sites are static and boring, so
they turn people away. A well-written blog that complements your Web
site can transform your on-line presence - giving you more ways of
reaching out with your message, more credibility as an authority in your
field, and more effective ways of supporting your existing customer
How can you use a blog?
A blog can help you in each of these three phases of your business:
- Development: Survey the market before creating products; publish draft ideas for feedback; keep a private record of your ideas.
- Distribution: Get more visitors to your Web site; promote products and services; establish credibility and demonstrate expertise.
- Support: Answer frequently-asked questions; provide on-going training material; store electronic information for downloads.
