I have a website, why do I need a blog?

A website is a great tool to have, however while I believe it is the most important tool of your online marketing, it should not stand alone. Social media, and specifically a blog should be used in conjunction with your website.

What does a blog do that a website doesn't? Well for one it's much easier to update. Not everyone has the time or money or content management system in place to easily update their website. Anyone can update a blog.

Also, Google and other search engines LOVE blogs. Especially if you include links to your website from your blog. It all becomes part of SEO.

The point is, your business needs a blog. There are lots of options out there, and actually I've read some things recommending not using Google's Blogger.com which is what I currently use. Meh - it's free.
