The great majority of the web copywriters urge you toward writing blog posts over and over again. There is nothing wrong about it and I approve the approach too, but I want to get more into the depth of why you should do this and what the benefits are.
Writing Blog Posts for Various Reasons
From the SEO point of view, the more valuable relevant web content is created on a blog, the more credit you earn from search engines, but I want to point out more reasons for doing so. Apart from increasing your ranking at search engines, you should be writing blog posts on a regular basis and consistent fashion because:
- You know the topic well – You are the expert and your audience comes to your site as you know your stuff well. So, you are expected to write something about what you are specialized in. This is why people go to the web. They want to learn and get more information about the topics they are interested in. So, make sure you use your web copywriting skills to express the topics your readers are interested in.
- Your readers need to know it – Your audience is attracted to your blog because of some need. They want to learn and you know what they need to know. If your blog is made to help its readers, which must be at least one of the reasons, then you should know that your readers feel the need to know the kind of stuff you're specialized in.
- Others have not covered it duly – One of the reasons many write about a topic is that they are convinced other bloggers have not covered it properly, comprehensively, carefully, etc. As a responsible web copywriter, who cares about his readers, you decide to cover the topic at your blog. So, you begin or continue writing blog posts on the topics of interest for your readers.
- Your approach has more advantages – A topic can be written about in different ways. Bloggers have got their own outlooks when writing about the same issue. Every blog author may deal with one aspect of a topic. You may have a different approach to the same issue and feel that your audience requires that particular insight to be able to tackle the probable problems at their lives, businesses, etc. So, you start or go on with writing blog posts that accomplish the goal you have.
