What is a website
A website gives you presence on the internet. It provides information about your business on the internet, allowing potential customers and existing customers to have access to information about your products and services 24/7. Your website is also built to help you convert your visitors into paying customers.
A website may allow you interact with your visitors, but if you want to deepen the relationship between you and your customers, you will need to add a corporate blog to your website.
What is a corporate blog
A corporate blog is an online journal (web log) maintained by a business to inform as well as keep in touch with visitors and customers. A corporate blog is a website, but is structured to focus on informing visitors and collecting feedback. Blogs are also easier to distribute. Using RSS feeds readers can read recent posts on your blog without visiting your blog site.
A corporate blog allows you or your designated person to write entries called posts or postings or updates. A blog also allows your readers to comment on your blog post. They can interact with other visitors as well. A visitor can also subscribe to the feed of your blog. If a person subscribes to your feed, he may be able to read your blog without visiting your website. A blog display in reverse chronological order with the most recent blog post being on top.
Because a blog is frequently updated, it gathers links faster which can affect its search ranking. Giving you the required link juice to make your main website ranks even higher in relevant keywords.
Why do you need a corporate blog
There is a limit to the type of information you can place on your website, for example an announcement of a new product is better done on your corporate blog, than on your website. The interaction provided by your corporate blog allows you to access visitor’s impression about the new product, something that your corporate website will not do effectively.
In the example given above, your website will focus on providing detailed information about the new product, like specs and features, as well as a conversion page like a buy page if you sell online, while your corporate blog handles the announcements, postponements, and up to the minute information about the new product and what your business is doing generally.
A corporate blog will allow your employees or spokespersons to address issues that some of your customers have with your business. A corporate blog can be useful in crisis situation, say the new product you launched is having problems, your corporate blog allows you to know the particular problem and restore customer confidence. You can post specific instructions on the solutions to the problem on your corporate blog allowing your customers to solve them on their own.
A corporate blog is great for public relations and marketing and a must for any business. Having a corporate blog can reduce the amount of customers at your customer care centre as well as the number of calls received at your call centre. If you notice that visitors are calling about a particular issue, you can provide info on how it can be resolved on your corporate blog, thereby de-congesting your customer centre.
Because your corporate blog is fresh with the latest information it can be a great tool for driving free traffic to your main website/business. Your corporate blog creates a following and builds visitor loyalty for your brand. A corporate blog can also boost the search ranking of your website in relevant keywords.
A blog allows you to communicate with your visitors and customers. Visitors to your blog can eventually be turned into customers as their loyalty for your brand increases.
Your corporate blog should be the headquarters of your social media engagement. Facebook and Twitter will come and go, but your corporate blog will remain for as long as your maintain it.
Focus on providing useful and timely information about your business, products and services on your corporate blog. Also provide tips, How Tos, Guidelines to your visitors on your corporate blog. Also provide general information about your industry on your corporate blog. All these will enable you build trust and credibility with your visitors and soon your competitors will not know what has hit them.
