So if you have, or are thinking about, starting your own online business, then you SIMPLY MUST take advantage of blogging, because you’re quite simply “leaving money on the table” if you don’t!

To help you, in this blog post today I’m listing below 5 reasons why you should use blogging as an Internet marketing tool.

5 Simple Reasons Why Blogging Can Be a Great Internet Marketing Tool

1.Blogging is simple. 

The simplest way to get your info onto the internet is through blogging.  No skills are necessary… an average adult can read and type, or at least click a mouse.  It’s like having a virtual piece of paper, you just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles comes out and entices your reader to also try any products you maybe promoting.

If you have a PC and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can blog and advertise.

2. Blogging is authentic. 

In this day and age where advertising saturates our lives, we quite often question the credibility of some advertising claims.  However, even today many, many blogs feature real people sharing their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising.

Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience, and it most certainly helps with any buying decision.

3. You Can Blog For FREE. 

Because blogging is still not yet 100% proven as a mainstream online advertising media, lots of platforms – like Blogger and WordPress –  still see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free.  But needless to say, paid blogs can generate more income for your seriously growing business.

4. Blogging builds credibility.

As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs.  As such, you can quite quickly be perceived as an expert.

As a consequence, more readers visit your site and many more bloggers link to your blogs and posts, therefore as your traffic increases you become more attractive to advertisers, and also can produce an income from promoting affiliate offers or even your own products!

5. Blogging builds your market.

Now, unless you’re a movie star, chances are, only your mother reads your Blog posts. Mom has a lot of friends, so she lets her friends know how interesting your blog is.  But you need not depend on Mom to increase your readership base.

So check out the following to help build your business through blogging:

 -By using your e-mail.
Today, blogging is overcoming e-mail’s popularity in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding a market. In this age of speed and quick access logging in and downloading e-mail is simply taking longer than clicking onto a blog.

So let them explore your site by using a short e-mail message as a teaser to your blog site, and if your e-mail is on a different subject, then simply use a link to your blog post in your e-mail signature.

-By using subscription. 
An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blog.  Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address.  Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you’re a spammer.

-By understanding your readers.
Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their profile and advertising preferences.  Ask consumers to give you feedback on a post,  ad links, or a trial that you shared.  In this way it’s like interviewing your readers without the commitment and intrusion of a face-to-face interview.

-By joining a blog network.
A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc.  Consumers find credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers about a single subject.  Clearly, more bloggers are better than one.

-By Using an RSS Feed.
RSS is still one of the most utilised methods on the Internet today to connect your readers to your blog. Having a variety of feeds can add interest to your blog.

So give your business a boost by effectively using blogging as an Internet marketing tool.

Happy Blogging.
