Why should I blog?
I get this question often. People think that blogging is a waste of time. The only way a blog is a waste of time is if you are not doing it properly.
According to Hubspot:Of Companies that blog;
55% more website visitors
They get 97% more inbound links
They get 434% more indexed pages
Those are impressive numbers. Even if you don't understand Internet marketing, it is clear that blogging companies outperform those who don't blog on a regular basis.
How much time does Blogging take?
Yes, blogging does take time.
How much is your time worth?
Is it worth $100 per hour, or $50 per hour?
Would it be worth it if you could make over $1000 per hour blogging?
I can live with that. What about more...is it possible?
Don't think you can make that?
I recently acquired a customer from a blog. Actually it was my very first blog that I wrote. This customer is a large manufacturing organization who has a need for the ser
vices that we have to offer.
The first proposal that I generated for this client was over $34,000.
With a gross margin of 30%(before overhead costs) that customer, with this one job will add $10,200 in additional gross margin to my company.
I estimate based on my time that cost approximately $300 to create the blog post that attracted this customer.
Therefore I spent $300 to gain $10,200 in additional gross margin or a gain of $9,900.
My return on investment from this one blog this 3400%!
I took me about 3 hours to create the blog.
$9,900 / 3 = $3,300 per hour.
Even better than the $1000 per hour I was shooting for!!
That only calculates my return from one project. If this customer becomes a long-term customer, what is the value over time?
Still don't think you can afford to blog?
Have you ever seen a 3400% return on your investment from your Yellow Pages? I doubt it!
What about your bank account or cd? Have you ever gotten a $3400% ROI from the money you put there?
Google loves blogs and it is a sure fire way to generate sales leads for whatever product or service you have to offer.
