It is easy to understand why linking a NEW blog post on your social media site is going to be more exciting than sharing a link to your newest products page. But the goal isn’t just to make an exciting post, you want your customer to engage in your brand and share that post with their social circle. The more content you have available to the public the more likely it will be that you connect to and expose potential customer. Not to mention having shareable content that is readily available is automatically going to increase the amount your brand is shared on traditional and nontraditional platforms. If you don’t have a blog, you most defiantly are not getting any of that exposure. According to Hubspot, “Companies that published 16+ blog posts per month got almost 3.5X more traffic than companies that published between 0 – 4 monthly posts.”
