Spaces to Open Your Business Blog or Host Your Business Site
There are four distinct ways you can use blogs to build your small business:
It's an immediate publishing tool for product and service innovations. As Jeff Nolan, director of Apollo Strategy Group comments: "blogs solve the problem of getting quick-hitting content to people that need it. The blogs are not a replacement for our corporate portal, but an addition to it."
It a fast and easy way to communicate with employees or clients. Groups can easily interact on projects from all corners of the globe to share ideas and keep updated.
It's an affordable marketing tool. It's easy to create a dialogue with your customers on your blog, to build lasting relationships. Search engines love this kind of blog content. You can easily boost your page rankings.
It's easy to start and maintain. A blog is a powerful, cost-effective alternative to a website or email newsletter. You don’t need an IT staff to start a blog. Updating a blog is simpler than sending an email.
