If you’re not getting results with business blogging or using social media for business, don’t blame the tools. You probably haven’t designed a content strategy that will engage your target market around your specific topic.
Most people jump into blogging and social media and start posting content wily nily about whatever floats their fancy at that particular moment in time. The problem with this approach is that you may be writing about topics that have little to do with your products and services, so the audience that you’re building may not be interested in what you have to offer.
If you laser focus your posts around the #1 topic your work is about, you’ll drive targeted traffic to your website that is much more likely to buy from you. That doesn’t mean you can’t write about other things, but it does mean that you should choose sub-topics that relate to and support your #1 topic.
