The Importance of Keeping the News Page on Your Website Updated

content marketingA news page is a common feature on many websites, and used properly, is a great addition to your site. If you have a news page on your website, ask yourself honestly – when was the last time it was updated? If you can’t remember when you last put an article or news bulletin on it, you need to act fast!

It can be really discouraging for potential customers when they check out a company’s news page only to find that it hasn’t been updated for months. It really doesn’t make a good impression and you may find potential customers asking themselves a few questions. Are they not very busy? Have they gone out of business?

You may have been meaning to update the content on your news page, but maybe it keeps getting put to the bottom of the list. In order to keep it up to date, you need to set aside a block of time during the week to make sure this all important task is carried out. That means posting regular articles that inform customers and readers of your latest news, products, services, event etc. And you’ll benefit from it too – not only do potential customers see interesting, relevant content; search engines love fresh content.

Content Ideas for your Website’s News Page

You might not think that you have anything to talk about and may worry about generating ideas, but there are lots of things you could write a short article about. Sharing testimonials is a great idea, as is sharing and commenting on industry news, welcoming a new member of staff – you get the idea!

Keeping visitors coming back to your website is also something to consider. Your regular customers may be very familiar with your site, but why not give them something new to read on their next visit? Loyal customers will be genuinely interested in your news, so adding fresh material to your site on a regular basis means that will come back to see what’s going on.

Concise and Captivating Content

Content needs to be concise and captivating, getting to the point quickly, and providing the option for readers to find out more. Text should be in bite sized sections, making it easy to scan and process the information with little effort. Text heavy paragraphs that aren’t broken up by images or bullet points are a real put off!

If you’ve been meaning to add regular articles to your news page, or simply update your website copy but never quite got round to it, we can help. Our blog writing service means that we can even write regular news articles on your behalf, ensuring that you’ve always got fresh content. Call us on 0114 383 0711 or email us at  contact@sevencreative.co.uk for more information.

Business Blogging: The Benefits, And Why You Should Be Doing It Too!

benefits of business bloggingDid you know that businesses that blog have 55% more visitors to their website?

Business blogging is a great way of increasing the online visibility of your business so that you can be found, and seen, on the internet. In other words, it’s a sure fire way to get your business out in front of people looking for your products and services online.

Drive Traffic to Your Website

Just like social media or email marketing, blogging supports the growth of your business by driving traffic to your website and creating the opportunity to convert that traffic into paying customers.

Being found in search engines is incredibly important for businesses. And for every blog post you publish, you are creating another opportunity for your website to appear in search engine results for the queries people enter into them. On average, blogging produces a massive 436% increase in the number of pages indexed in the search engines, therefore the more indexed pages you have, the greater your chance of being found.

Share Original Content on Social Media

Blogging will also help you get discovered on social media, as you’re creating content that can be shared on your social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. You’ll slowly build up a repository of content on your blog that is not only original, it’s also perfect for sharing on the above channels, widening your audience.

Establish Authority and Build Credibility

Business blogs are a fantastic way of sharing your expertise and your knowledge. Good blogs answer common questions that their leads and customers may have; so the more useful, relevant information you share in your blog posts, the more credibility you will gain. Let’s face it, people are far more likely to buy products or services from businesses they feel like they already know and trust.

Writing a blog is the perfect way to engage with existing customers and potential clients online.   Publishing interesting blog articles are a great way of communicating, building dialogue and providing a platform for customers to contact you.

4. Search engine optimisation and blogging

Blogs can also be used as an effective search engine optimisation tool because articles can be used as a tool to drive traffic to your main website.  By making sure that your blog posts are rich in key words and popular search terms, your blog can increase your SEO efforts AND provide readers with valuable content.

5. Advertise your products or services

A blog that is used primarily for advertising isn’t the best way to approach blogging for your business. People will get fed up if they constantly feel like they are being sold to. But a little bit of self promotion in the right context is acceptable, and can benefit the reader if your products or services provide a solution to the problem, or answer to the question they have been looking for.

If you would like a blog for your business, but don’t have the time to dedicate to it, or the skills to set it up yourself, Seven Creative web design in Sheffield can help. And if you’re stuck for original, interesting content, we can take care of that too by writing the articles for you, as often as you like!
