Having a blog is a critical aspect of SEO. Many of your competitors may have a blog. Some are using it with great results. Others haven’t updated it in months, maybe longer.
If you have a blog that’s gathering dust, or if you’d like to start up a new one, then hiring a blog writer is a great idea.
Well, one of the main reasons that people fail to maximize their blog’s full money-making potential is because they:
- Don’t have the time to update their blog
- Bang their head against the wall because they run out of ideas
- They’re just not confident writers
- They don’t understand how a blog can both positively and negatively affect a person’s business
That last point is critical. Setting up a blog and making sure that it’s filled with relevant content is absolutely critical. This is where hiring a competent blog writer is a good idea.
How do you know you’re working with a good writer?
Listen to the questions they ask. For instance…if they don’t even care to ask, “Can you tell me what you, or your best salesperson does to land a sale?” or, “If you were looking for your business online, what would you search for?” then, you may not be talking to someone who will do a good job for you.
Needless to say, if the web copywriter that you are considering DOES ask those questions, then you know you’re talking to someone who understands SEO and what it takes to get your blog, and your business higher rankings in Google.
