The finalists for the 2019 Best Construction Blog will be announced next Monday.

linkedin sellingYou’ve probably heard the mantra: “You need a blog” for your marketing and search engine recognition, but how do you do it right, effectively, and at low cost in stress and time?

The answer: Focus on providing value to your current and potential clients and not on selling stuff, says Pat Henseler in this LinkedSelling article.?He advocates a four-stage process in developing your blog:

  1. Define and research your ideal customers;
  2. Write content from a helpful point of view;
  3. Convert skimmers to viewers with great headlines; and
  4. Think about how to get readers into your funnel

However, the most important point remains writing content that truly provides value for your readers, whether or not they will elect to take things further and request more information, or ultimately do business with you.

P.S. Nominations have opened for the 2015 Best Construction Blog competition. You’ll obtain free publicity, hyperlinks and recognition just by entering — and of course even more recognition and SEO effectiveness if you win in both the popular and judged voting process.
