Everyone will tell you that you should be blogging because it makes Google happy. But Lollipop Local will show you how it benefits your business.
Websites might be new but 'Content' certainly isn't. For as long as we have been evolving, humans have sourced new information and loved sharing stories. Nowadays a lot of this is done on the internet - on blogs and social media.
'Content' is now the generic term for anything that is 'interesting to the consumer'.
Here's some statistics from around the web that show how content marketing can help your business.
"...improved my website's ability to get found... and I have a specific plan of action for my blog strategy..."

We understand that people are online to have fun and learn about interesting stuff. So rather than sell, sell, sell the focus should be help, help, help.
Regularly adding valuable and informative content to your site turns your website from a static online brochure to a constantly updating resource of useful, relevant information. And if you can make it fun too...
This pleases Google and readers. Both will want to share your website with others and so expose your website to a wider audience.
If someone is looking for a product or service and while researching they stumble across your blog post which helps them overcome a problem or answers their question. This process builds trust and begins to establish your expertise.
Another blog post answers further questions and nudges them towards buying from you or picking up the phone.
This process is NOT hard sell it's building relationships by helping people. Further content nutures this relationship.
People are influenced by what they read online as the stats confirm
- 20% of online time is spent on 'content'
- 68% of people spend time reading about brands that interest them
- 57% read content marketing information at least once a month
- 80% of people appreciate learning about a company through customised 'content'
These days people research online before buying. So you need to be visible and active online to influence prospective customers or clients.
