During our last networking meeting last week. A few of the Mumpreneurs were interested in how to do simple blogs to help their SEO on their website but didn’t know where to start. You only need short blogs to help your website be active, about 300 words recommends Andie Noon from Scruffy Dog Studio’s.
Here are my Top 5 tips for Writing simple Blogs to help keep your website active.
1. Choose Easy Topics about your products or services.
You have a wealth of knowledge about your business area. Whether your sell a product or a service. Share what you know about it. If you are selling make up write a blog on best ways to apply foundation.
2. Come up with a list of topics you can choose from.
Sit down and create a list of topics you could blog on. Each week keep adding to the topics and then choose one to write on. Makes it easy to pick from a list then feeling like you have nothing to write on.
3. Choose 3 links.
In your blog have at least three links out to other websites. If you are mentioning anyone else at all pop a link in to them. Build relationships between your websites.
4. Only 300 words
You only need 300 words to keep have activity. This blog only 353 words. It’s very short and it’s only a bit longer than some of the post we do on Facebook.
5. If you can talk you can write.
I have never been any good at writing but I do it anyway. The more you write the better you become. I struggle with grammar, spelling and flow. Write like you talk, use the conversation in your head and pop it down on the computer.
To throw out 300 words only takes around half and hour to do over a coffee. Don’t be scared to write as you have a wealth of knowledge all there inside you. Do a few bullet points and you are on your way.
