The Core Activity of Inbound Marketing
Blogging is THE core activity of Inbound Marketing. Of course to make it sound more professional, we call it Content Generation, but it’s still blogging.
It is first important to understand that business blogging is not hobby blogging. Business blogging is a highly structured and systematic way of creating, scheduling, and publishing articles and stories (content) that are properly formatted for good SEO but written for people, not search engines.
Definition of Business Blogging
I gave an overview in the last paragraph, and in more detail….
Business blogging is the creation of a steady steam of articles and stories, published in fairly short easily digestible posts, at frequent intervals, on a continual basis, where the articles and stories are of interest to the audience you wish to attract, and are properly formatted for strong SEO.
Please reflect a little on how that description fits major newspaper websites.
From a technical perspective, newspaper and magazine websites are business blogs.
What’s Most Important About Business Blogging?
