Here is a quick list of 7 Reasons why you should start Pumping out Content for your small business, micro business or startup.
1) Because you can.
2) Because it’s fun.
What small business owner doesn’t get ideas in the middle of the night, driving down the road or in the shower. We all do. We care about our baby and even the most boring of us comes up with great ideas to promote his or her baby. Now you have the keys and you’re in control.
3) Because it educates and sells.
Want to get a point across to a prospect. Want to reinforce something to a current customer. Want to show your hand to a competitor. Want to tell your customers and prospects why they should look at your value propositions. Pump out the good relevant content.
4) Because you’ll be one of the first adopters.
No matter how much small businesses are chattering about inbound marketing, social media and blogging- very few are actually doing it. Want to get ahead? Then actually do it and stop just talking about it.
5) Because you’ll learn a lot in the process.
Creating good content for your site and blog is fun yet challenging. It requires you to rethink the way you run your business, the way you market your products and services and the way your community views you. Whether you’re recording videos and screencasts, snapping telling pictures, writing great posts or sharing key links- you’ll be forced to think and learn along the way.
6) Because you’re creating indexable content that can be referenced by you and search engines fo-ever.
Think about the difference between the web and sending a direct mail piece, running a print ad or buying a phone book ad. Print is finite. The web is not as of yet.
7) Because I said so.
I have your best interests at heart. I’m a nice guy and a lot smarter people than me are saying this too.
