Why it’s So Important for Retailers to Start Blogging

Blogging has become increasingly popular over the past few years. Today, I’ve decided to write a blog post on why you should be blogging:

For any business, blogging can be a great way to drive traffic to your webpage. Think about it… by writing a blog post on your company website, it can then be shared across all your social media platforms. Simply insert the URL into a status, post, Instagram photo… just one click away for people to see it. Great!

For retailers, blogging is also great to talk about new interesting products, events or anything else that you may have coming up in the near future. By writing an exciting blog post about what your store has to offer, it will help create awareness and get people engaged and involved in your business.

One great advantage of blogging, is that if you get it right, you can attract customers who are waiting to tune into your next post. It’s all about being fun and creative, whilst being informative about what your business has to offer.

There are so many great benefits of blogging… creating customer relationships, recruiting retail staff and simply keeping your website fresh and creative. As more and more companies are turning to online blogging, you don’t want to be left behind. So here are a few simple tips to writing a successful blog:

  • Be Relevant – it is essential not to get carried away when writing a blog post. Make sure you know what it is you want to display to your consumers, but keep it fun and interesting!

  • Be Unique – following the crowd won’t get you anywhere, with your blog post you want to gain a creative and competitive advantage. Coming up with unique ideas is a great way to reel in new consumers!

  • Show your personality – don’t just read other blogs and follow the same sort of rules. Add your own flare into your work, display what your business is all about!

  • Think smartly – if you have a new product range coming out, or are hosting an event in the near future, then use this blog post as an opportunity to get the word out. The more awareness you create, the more interest you will get!
