Q&A from Webinar
Do you have to stay on subject or can you write about other topics outside of your industry?
As long as you’re posting quality content, it’s fine to branch out of your industry. Blogs are a great place to share a more human side to your organisation, so don’t shy away from a more personal approach.
How can we increase the amount of views our blogs receive?
Promoting your blogs across social media, trying some digital advertising, sending a regular newsletter and following our SEO tips are all great ways to help increase your views.
How often should you post blogs to keep engagement but not saturate / bore?
Although it is great to be consistent with content, the main focus is quality not quantity. Only share posts when you have something valuable and engaging to say.
Where can I host my blogs?
There are many platforms available such as SquareSpace and Wix, but we would recommend using WordPress.
