There are many reasons that you will benefit from when blogging. You’ll get a sense of satisfaction in sharing your knowledge, wisdom, or experience. It’s rewarding to know that you are helping others.
Second, blogging is a way to be seen as an authority in your field. By posting valuable information for others to use, you are positioning yourself as someone who knows a topic well.
Third, blogging is a form of marketing that is free or almost free. Once you put a blog out into cyberspace, it is there forever. For years to come, people will read your blog and learn about you and what you offer.
I’ve been blogging for almost three years now. While I was very inconsistent at the beginning, I now blog once at least three out of four weeks. This means over the last three years, I’ve published 83 new blogs.
This might sound intimidating if you are thinking about getting started, but I’m going to share with you a few ways you can get started with blogging, without biting off more than you can chew. There are many schools of thought about how often to blog or how long a blog should be. I don’t follow all of the expert’s advice, but I have steadily provided new content for a growing number of receivers and it is paying off for me in several ways.
The easiest way to get started is to be featured as a Guest Blogger. This means you write a blog and someone who already has an established blog will post your blog on their site.
Better Teams would love to consider your blog. If you are interested in blogging consider our parameters and reach out to us.
I encourage you to write a short blog and reach out to us (or another business that posts blogs) and get your intellectual property out to the world. It’s a fun and exciting process.
