How is a BLOG the solution to growing your business?

The approach is more humane with a blog. A blog serves the purpose of an expert educator. This means it is about how much a reader gains from the valuable information.

By having a blog, you are devising an interface that opens up opportunities for both the parties. It is an opportunity for the customer to learn more. For a business, it is a pass to build trust amongst your customers by providing detailed information. An expert is deemed as the authority and has the power to persuade through higher knowledge.

For example, if you are looking to invest in a Marketing Solution like Hubspot, you land on their site and look for the product listing tab. 

Hubspot's Content Flow
Hubspot’s Content Flow

Once you have seen the product and pricing, you DO linger over the website to find out more about the product. What do you do next? You hit the very inviting “Resources” tab. 

What does the “Resources” tab tell you?

It throws arrays of options for the potential customer to derive value and access the company’s success stories. All the freebies, trainings, comprehensive courses, eBooks, Blog and everything under the tab is done for a purpose. The purpose is to provide VALUE.

A business can win over the trust of a customer only when there is the provision of value. Employing content strategy to design the website directs the business to bring in more leads. If you read the blog, notice how many links point back to Hubspot’s other content? That is visitor retention.

How do the FREE Resources benefit the business?

The FREE resources are designed to solve a particular set of problems faced by a certain set of audience. This set of an audience is the circle of potential customers to the company. When the company is investing time and effort to solve its audience’s day to day problems, it is building a relationship with the audience. Therefore, Relationship Marketing comes into the picture.

Now, because the company has already established a truly helpful relationship with the audience, the audience is willing to listen. The next step is to capture emails by proposing an enticing freebie offer, through a blog post.

How do the FREE Resources bring in prospects?

Access the blog and see how one blog arrives at a point of conclusion to point at another blog post. This creates the train of information that retains the visitor. At the end of every post, the content leaves the reader wanting for more of such helpful information. The cycle of continuous data consumption is triggered to keep the visitor feel interested. From one blog post to another and up comes the prompt with a “Download eBook” message.

The moment you see a ‘FREE Download’ image, you are willingly offering your email id in a quest to learn more about the subject. You did this because the information offered you value. You would have bounced if the headline promised something and delivered things you don’t want. And, you just became a prospect.

What happens after a prospect becomes a subscriber?

As a general process, a subscriber is scooped into the company’s information exchange community. She now receives tons of relevant information spiking her learning curve. Over a period, now that the company has helped the subscriber with her needs, the subscriber has a higher chance of buying a product from the company. Do you appreciate how the traffic is routed through the blog by providing targeted content?

A business blog acts as a source to display the company’s expertise and project mastery. By delving deep and denting those details, the business establishes authority in that niche. So, if you have a problem pertaining to that niche, you look up to the master and not the minion.

This is not the end. A purposeful blog post makes the reader FEEL more knowledgeable and powerful. By discovering knowledge in the areas of her interest, the reader feels the same relief as she would feel in finding a solution. That is the power of writing. The intrinsic synergy and excitement in the moment, persuade the reader to share the blog content online. This promotes the online visibility of the brand.

Why is online visibility a concern?

If you are reading this, you know that online visibility is important. Today, the spine of any business is its content system. If you do not distribute content, it goes stale. Content distribution or social media sharing brings warm organic traffic. A warm audience brings natural engagement and genuine distribution. This results in boosting traffic leading to some fresh link juice. This is a cycle that keeps generating traffic.

In the digital world, traffic is money. Website traffic coupled with power-packed copy and persuasive blog content is a goldmine for a business online. But, this is no cakewalk. Writing content that pleases the reader, as well as the search engine, needs experience. It involves strategy, planning and conviction.

4 Cardinal Rules to avoid a bad business name
How you shouldn’t name your business!

Let us say that there is an artist named Wilhelmina who makes incredible oil paintings. Her work is popular in her social circle. She decides to put up an eCommerce site to sell her paintings. She purchases the domain and sets up her art shop. Since her customers already know her name, they make the purchases. The sales boomed and Wilhelmina wishes to expand her business. She decides to organize an event to market her business. Things go well during the event, but no sales happen at the backend. What do you think would have gone wrong? Her business name! People are confused. They cannot remember. They abandon it.

How do business names like come across as professional? They can’t. Always follow the four cardinal rules to check if your business name sounds professional and relatable.

  • Is it easy to pronounce?
  • Is it easy to remember?
  • The domain name is not too long to type
  • The name does not carry an unpleasant connotation in any language, region or culture (remember, your website is open to readers across the globe) is a very genuine domain. But, it fails three out of the four steps. It isn’t easy to pronounce. It can be misspelled. The name is definitely not easy to remember unless it is an already established name like Google or Yahoo (though they are strangely named).

Self-branding can go wrong if you have an uncommon name. But here is the good news, you CAN have a much better name by brainstorming a little more.

Identifying keywords that make your business

What do you identify your work with? What solutions are you providing under your services? How are you different? What is your value system? Who is your target audience? Make a list of keywords associated with your business. Make a table like the one shown below, with the system of words that matter to you as a business. This helps you soak in the raw muddle of ideas and come out clean with sharp annotations.

Create buzzwords or combine words to make a snazzy name

After arriving at these factors, determine the ones that you best resonate with and search for synonyms. For example, in my case, “Creating helpful business-guides” is what stood out for me. If you see synonyms for “guide“, there are many words that mean the same and also sound better. I chose ‘Primer‘ because it signifies the elementary principles.

Getting to the foundation of your purpose brings clarity to your objectives. The manifestation of the basics of your business is the launchpad to your success. It helps you see your vision and mark your mission. It brings clarity to what your business is meant for. Choose words that elevate the power of your purpose and add magic to the name. I want my website to be the first point of reference for any business need in the coming days. Hence, the suffix ‘Primer‘ was achieved.

So, I enter ‘businessprimer‘ as the keyword and the query throws thousands of arrays of options to choose from. Since was taken, I prefixed ‘the’ to the name and arrived at ‘‘.

Always follow the fool-proof 4 cardinal rules and you will never have a bad business name. Once you decide on a name, let the name sit for two days. Let it sink in before you buy the domain name. You might come up with better alternatives. Zero in on to the best name and go buy the domain.


Why don’t buzzwords necessarily make a good name?

If you are someone who wants to add more jazz to your company name, you could follow this method to arrive at a spicy name. But, things can go wrong. For example, AnalTech is a technology-based company. Everything sounds good about the company till the buzzword is analyzed. The current day web filters may block the company due to the presence of such words. This was a gentle warning to help you choose the best name for your company.
