Blogging Is The Key To Building Traffic and Generating Leads | Ep. #27

00:0000:00

Blogging can seem like a daunting task to most but every blog post is one more page that Google indexes and puts into their search engine. Furthermore, companies that published 16+ blog posts per month got almost 3.5 times more traffic than companies that published between 1 – 4 monthly posts according to Hubspot.

Blogging not only helps you build traffic but it also shows your audience that you are an authority in your industry and you are willing to help solve their problems for free. This helps them be selfish when it comes to choosing to use your products or services because it is now in their best interest.

We have a special guest in this episode, Maxym Martineau. Maxym Martineau is a copy editor and staff writer for GoDaddy. She's an avid reader with an unhealthy addiction to Dr. Pepper and chocolate. She binge watches TV shows like there's no tomorrow and is always up for a good plot discussion. You can follow her on Twitter for further shenanigans.
