How to write a business blog when you don’t have time to write

gloucesteshire-web-designs-how-to-write-a-business-blogMany of my clients say they don’t know how to write a business blog with everything else they have to do.

They are busy people juggling all the aspects of their business and blog writing is a chore that falls way down the list of priorities.

The truth is, with all the competition online, you NEED a regularly updated, compelling blog to generate new interest and leads.

If you’re not blogging, your competitors are; and they’re taking business that could be yours.

But don’t worry, I’ve come up with seven tips to help you.

How to write a business blog when you don’t have time to write

So the next time someone asks you how to write a business blog, it’s easy. You tell them it takes just 20 minutes a day!

The list

This post took me less than 20 minutes because lists are so easy to write. You don’t need to research them; list posts are the sort of things you do every day without thinking that are easy to share.

So go ahead and write “Three ways to…” or “Top seven tips for …”

Polls and questions

Everyone loves to talk about themselves and the love to share an opinion. Open up a blog post where you ask your readers opinions, thoughts or suggestions. Ask them a personal question or find out what keeps them awake at night. This has the added bonus of providing you with future content ideas and is free market research for your business.

Infographics

There are some fantastic infographics on the internet. If a picture paints a thousand words, an infographic probably paints ten times that amount. People want soundbites of information, and an infographic delivers that in spades.

Video

Have you found yourself glued to a TED Talk or YouTube video recently? If you learned something from a great video, chances are your readers are looking for the same information; so write an introductory paragraph telling your readers what you learned and go ahead and embed!

Quotes

Do you have some favourite quotes that keep you going? Some words of wisdom that get you out of procrastination or do the words of your wise Grandmother still ring in your ears? People love inspiring or funny quotes to get them through the day and the great thing about quote is they can go viral on twitter.

STATS

We all love statistics – for example did you know there were 175 million tweets sent from Twitter every day in 2012? and that 250 million photos are uploaded to Facebook every day? See? You loved it!

Images

Cute cats sell folks! Everyone has a soft centre just waiting to be activated by some furry or funny animal. Inspirational images soothe the senses and help people get through their day. Funny images bring much-needed relief to a stressful morning. Images also allow your readers to get to know you a bit better. Make sure you give credit where credit is due and don’t infringe copyright laws.

There you have it. By using these suggestions you could be blogging every day of the week in less than 2 1/2 hours, adding fresh content to your blog and seeing your position climb in Google.

What about you; what are your favourite quick blog posts to write?
