As you might be able to tell, The Women’s Organisation LOVES blogging! We like to blog about our news, about our courses, about things we enjoy, and basically anything and everything! Blogging gives us more space than a 140 character tweet, or a short Facebook status, and as we’ve never been shy with words – this is great!
But it’s no big news that blogging is great for your business! It can drive traffic towards your website, help you build a relationship with your customers and clients and lets you share your news in an interesting and creative way.
So to jump on board all things blogging, The Women’s Organisation has a brand spanking new training course to help you get your head around blogging for your business. Blogging for Beginners kicks off in November, and we can’t wait…
Here’s Top Five Quick Tips for Blogging, and if you want to find out more, then you need to get yourself a place on our course!
Top Five Beginners Blogging Tips
Create a Blog Personality – Don’t formulate your posts. Let your voice shine through. Give your blog a personality.
Be Consistent – When starting out, try to post at least three times a week, preferably every other day (The Women’s Organisation Edit – Even if you can’t post every other day, once a week is great!)
Keep It Simple – Don’t get caught up in the length of your posts. They don’t have to be long. They can be random thoughts or titbits of news regarding your industry. The key is to make them interesting
Allow Comments – You can moderate comments, but comments create the viral effect by allowing your readers to interact with you. You will also want to research and comment on relevant industry related blogs.
Focus On Your Title – Titles draw traffic. Be creative. Not only do they capture the attention of potential readers but those search engines love blog titles. A rule of thumb is to keep your title under ten words.
