So what is a blog anyway?
A blog is a kind of online journal where a an administrator can post information, opinions, articles, etc., on a regular basis. Each post can be categorized and tagged so that users can sort them out by category or keywords within the text.
The advantages to having a blog are that you can have the latest news on products, promotions or events up online as fast as you can type! You can also use it to educate customers on your products or to demonstrate how-to tutorials. But most importantly, you can interact with customers, and they in turn can leave comments on your blog, subscribe to your feed and best of all, SHARE your posts with their friends and social networks.
Do I need a blog, a website or both?
That really depends on what your company needs, and if you have the time or the team to help you keep up with blogging. If you just need to have an informational site that doesn't require frequent updates, then you probably don't need a blog. But, if you have regular products specials, promotional events, news or simply want to have more interaction with your clients, then a blog is definitely for you.
A blog can be part of a website, designed seamlessly so that the user doesn't even notice the transition. A blog can also be a website in itself, if you point your domain directly to your blog, making it your landing page. WordPress blogs allow you to have static pages similar to what you would have on a website, but with some limitations.
If you are not sure if you need a blog, or website, or both, we can setup a meeting to help you figure it out!
I prefer working with WordPress blogs. There are two kinds of WordPress blogs, the ones hosted with them and the self hosted. For more information on the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, click here.
