Most businesses have a static website.
The information on the site is the same as it was 12 months ago.
Consumers today want fresh information.
A blog consists of a series of articles also called posts and if you are blogging regularly your potential customers will get the fresh information they crave. Think of your blog as a newspaper. Who would want to read about the news from 3 weeks ago?
Your current and potential customers also want to give you their opinion by making comments and a blog easily allows them to that. At the end of each article viewers can make comments and you can reply back to them for some interaction.
This interaction gives them a voice and a sense of community especially when you combine your blog with your Social Media.
Another reason you should have a blog for your business…
Blogs can perform well in the search engines so potential customers find your business online. Search engines such as Google like whatever the consumers likes and they like fresh content and media.
Take a look at the screenshot from the official Google blog.
You can see in the highlighted paragraph it states,
Searchers want to find the latest relevant content…
It also states,
Content on the web is blossoming…with the advent of video, images, new, and real-time updates…
Blogs are also built to add media like video and pictures fairly simply.

With all the excitement and hoopla for using Twitter for marketing, there sure is a lot of confusion. So let’s clear it up and start with the story of Stephanie.
Stephanie called me to say thanks after watching a few of my free online training videos. She had nothing to sell and simply expressed her appreciation.
Stephanie went on to tell me how she has 3,000 Twitter followers and how much time she spends Tweeting each day. I asked her how much that increased her income and she replied, “nothing yet.”
This is pretty typical for Twitter follower-collectors.
The purpose of Twitter is to allow micro-blogging in small pieces(hence the word micro.) Use it for quick updates for people that want to hear what you have to say or for getting quick updates from people that you want to hear from.
Why would anyone want to hear what you have to say?
Back to Jesus…
So many people that aggressively use Twitter for marketing will follow people and hope they do the customary thing…follow back. There are multiple software programs for doing it on autopilot.
So my question to you is, “Would Jesus follow Pontius Pilate just so he could get a follow back?”
Although he would probably have to use JC because someone already took his name, and he would have to keep his powerful speeches to 140 characters or less, Jesus would probably have a lot of followers without having to follow anyone himself. It would probably look something like:
*If all you do is follow people hoping they will follow you back…does anyone pay attention to anything? Where is the value in that?
There is a lot of value in using Twitter but I will save that for another article.
