NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Hosting a blog for your business is a great way to provide your customers with educational resources, build brand awareness, and take part in industry conversation. However, if you are selling across several different niche markets, determining an effective blog strategy that encompasses all of those can be quite the challenge. When deciding your client-centered approach you have several options such as:
- One Blog, Multiple Topics. Considered a generic strategy, this one might be the easiest for small businesses to follow because there isn’t much of a time commitment. Create a site, add a blog and post different topics throughout the course of a week.
- One Company, Multiple Websites. Each niche market would require its own website and blog. A disadvantage of this model is the time commitment that is recommended for maintaining the content on the blogs. This approach is doable if you have a team helping you with the strategy, but can prove difficult if you’re a solopreneur.
- One Website, Multiple Blogs. The challenge is to produce enough content to fulfill your blog strategy across each of the different blogs. This approach may be the most sensible for small business owners, but you will want to ensure that the other pages of your website support all of the niche markets comfortably.
