How Social Media Positively Affects Your Business Blog

Here’s what you need to know about why social media is important for your business blog

Blogging is an underrated marketing tool. Most businesses fail to see the importance of blog content when it comes to driving traffic to their company websites. Your business blog can be used as a smart way to create and host original content that could boost your company’s authority and reputation. This is why your blog content shouldn’t just be sitting idly by — it should be out and about for all the worldwide web to see, and social media is a great place to start.

 
Here are ways how social media can positively affect your business blog.

1. Drive traffic to your blog

With all the likes, shares, and comments that are happening in social media platforms every minute, it’s impossible for people to miss your blog content when it has been shared from your company page. Social media sharing builds an audience and can increase organic traffic to your business blog.

2. Increase backlinks

When you write high-quality content for your blog, there’s a good chance that your blog posts gets shared multiple times on social media. Social shares of your blog content is a good way to get backlinks to your website. When quality content is being shared on social media and linked back to your site, this builds your social authority which is one of the key ranking signals.

3. Longer content life

With social media, it’s easy to immortalize a post with shares, screenshots, and constant activity. Social media engagement helps in keeping your blog post in the limelight; more likes and shares could mean that your post keeps appearing in social media newsfeeds and that your content stays relevant longer. Content relevancy and audience engagement are also known ranking signals so it’s a good idea to keep them in mind.

4. Gain customer insights

As you engage with customers through social media, you get to know them better. In your social media posts, ask your audience to share their ideas, thoughts, and questions. This can help you learn more about what interests them and gain new content ideas for your next business blog post.

Social media has now become one of the key elements in marketing. In Facebook alone, there are already 2 billion users to date, and the number keeps growing year by year. For businesses, social media is a place overflowing with opportunities to market and advertise your company, including your blog content.
