Chapter 17: Final Thoughts:
“A blog is only as interesting as the interest shown in others.” – Brian Clark
One of the most important things to remember about running a successful business blog is that a dynamic, effective blogger is always changing the way they work.
Readers change, companies change, industries change, customers change – being willing to accommodate those changes and produce relevant content is key to remaining successful in your blogging endeavors!
As your blog grows and changes, you will learn more and more through hands on experience. Refer back to the tips contained in this ebook as needed, but also remember to keep your own notes on the lessons you learn from your day to day immersion in the blogging experience. You are often your best teacher!
The most important tip we can provide you with is to hear the voice of your readers and customers and give the people what they want! Through blog comments, emails from readers, and analytic reports, you will learn a great deal about what is working for your business blog and what is not. Hear the feedback that you are given and, most importantly, accept both praise and criticism. Producing written content on a regular basis is a difficult but rewarding task and should be handled as such.
As we bring this ebook to a close, we encourage you to review the tips listed within the book and make notes on how you plan to implement them in your business blogging venture. From researching blog-hosting websites to one day reviewing your first analytics report, we hope that the information in these pages provides you with the basic stepping stones for getting started with your blog and becoming a thriving, successful blogger!
