You’re not blogging? Why not?

That’s your excuse, you don’t have time? Consider making time. Blogging may just be the most important thing you can do for your business, going forward. There are endless reasons you need a blog.

Consider these stats, from The Next Web:

  • 82% of marketers who blog daily acquired a customer using their blog, as opposed to 57% of marketers who blog monthly which, by itself, is still an impressive result (HubSpot)

  • 59% of B2B marketers rate blogs as the most effective content marketing tactic (CMI)

  • Blogging champions as the #1 method for increasing traffic, with SEO in second place (HubSpot)

  • B2B marketers who use blogs generate 67% more leads per month than those who do not (Inside View)

  • Blogs give websites 434% more indexed pages and 97% more indexed links (Hubspot)

No matter what kind of business you have, blogging is worth the time it takes. Moreover, you don’t need much time to blog. You can blog on the go.

How to blog on the go

I do much of my blogging away from my computer. I’m more creative out of the office than in it. If you get frazzled and distracted, consider that you can blog anywhere.

Use Evernote to blog in your car, at the supermarket, while waiting for your kids…

Evernote lets you blog anywhere. You can set up templates for various kinds of blog posts, or just create notes as you think of them. You can create image and audio notes: I get some of my best ideas while I’m walking Honey, my Jack Russell.
