How do you write a successful blog?

Can blogging really bring in business, and if so, how?

What should you write about to attract potential customers?

These are some of the questions I addressed earlier this week when I spoke about business blogging at Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! (as you can see from this rare aerial photo of me presenting).

As usual when I speak to an audience, I created a written version of the presentation for the audience – and you can download it here.

Read it to learn:

  • Why nobody reads most blogs
  • How a blog can bring you new business – even if your customers don’t read blogs
  • The critical element most business blogs are missing
  • How a blog can establish you as an authority in your industry
  • How to attract new readers – and keep them coming back
  • Deepening the relationship with your audience – from readers to customers
  • Using blogging to complement other forms of social media

Feel free to share the document with anyone who could do with a little help creating a popular and effective business blog.

    Thanks for this, Mark. I’m preparing to launch a blog for my freelance writing business, so it’s a timely read!

    Thanks, Mark!

  3. Excellent material! The pdf is very much worth downloading and reading.
    Too bad I couldn’t participate in the seminar.
    Is there a video recording of it available?

  4. Tyler and Ariana says:

    Mark, We stumbled upon your blog right before starting our first blog post this past week and your post was incredibly useful! Thanks for sharing your expertise.

  5. Spotted out wearing an all in one, it didn’t require much for followers to want to imitate the style, and soon everybody was sporting them.
    Embroider a sweet message, the baby’s name and birth date, or a design on a piece of fabric and place it inside
    the frame. Anything related to do with jungle and nature
    has special attraction for all of us and if we
    are able to find mythological animal costumes, it will be an added attraction.

    With the garage door closed, place the ladder below the motor and find the limit
    switches. Many home improvement stores carry Wayne Dalton parts and doors so they would have additional resources
    for you.

  8. What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how regarding unpredicted emotions.

  9. Hi there to every one, for the reason that I am genuinely keen of reading
    this blog’s post to be updated daily. It carries fastidious stuff.

  10. It’s hard to come by experienced people on this topic, however, you seem
    like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
