What Exactly Is a Blog & What Can It Do for Me?
"Blog" is a contraction of the term "web log." A blog is either a website or a part of a website, with regular entries (logged items), in reverse chronological order. Blog entries can be commentary, descriptions of events or other material.
The modern blog, which evolved from online diaries where people would keep running accounts of their personal lives, is said to have been invented in 1993 by a man named Glen Barry. Since 2002, blogs have played an increasingly important role in cyberspace, in the business as well as political arena.
How can blogging benefit you and your organization? The advantages of blogging may be summarized in ten key points:
- Blogs strengthen branding.
- Blogs are excellent lead generation tools.
- Blogs engage prospects and customers alike in constructive conversation.
- Blogs can offer the option of allowing readers to leave comments and feedback.
- Blogs are an effective way of sharing information and knowledge.
- Blogs can be distributed like news feeds, to the far corners of cyberspace.
- Blogs help you establish expertise and credibility.
- Blogs remind people about you on a regular basis.
- Blogs can link and direct readers to places you want them to go.
- Blogs function as valuable SEO (search engine optimization) tools.
A good blog can do all this for you and more. To be effective, though, a blog must be much more than simply words on a web page, a pile of verbiage. It must be interesting and it must be well-written. The better written it is, the more effective a job it will do for you.
A mediocre blog can actually do more harm than good. Instead of cultivating goodwill, it will alienate people and drag down your brand. Better to have no blog at all than to have a poor one.
At its best, a blog is informative, entertaining and connects well with the intended audience. It addresses their needs, while positioning you as the leader in your niche or space. At its best, a blog prompts readers to take the desired actions: clicking on particular links, leaving feedback, referring friends and, yes, buying more products and services!
