    It's not.

    Unless you can write and market your blog don't bother. It's not worth the effort.

    I agree. A blog is nothing more than a magazine. If you think you can and want to compete with all the other online magazines that cover the same topic as you, then don't do it. To give a little more detail, a blog is a useful tool to get more people to your web site. This is only true however if your blog is unique and gets ranking itself. If not it is a money pit.

    For example my business is a local pressure washing company. First thing is that pressure washing is a low interest area and not conducive to blogging in the first place. Second thing is it makes no sense to try to make Apex Pressure Washing blogs rank since a) nobody is looking for articles about pressure washing, and b) i wouldn't want to spend what it would cost to get it to rank nationally.

    One of the most effective ways to build brand awareness, while providing relevant and useful content to your target audience is through consistent blogging. It helps to develop And Strengthen relationships With Existing And New Customers and establish your business as an industry leader.

    You don’t need to blog to do this. There are far better ways to build brand awareness. For example taking an active role in forums, social media, resource sites and so on will get you name in front of more people than a blog.

    Blogging is a very effective way to earn money even without business. Blogging is like a business. Your visitors come to your site to find your solution and you provide them so it is like business. But if you already have a business then you can promote your product / service through your blog. You can get millions of visitors to buy your product. This is the best way to expand your business.

    I think it's a good way for business, but there is a long way for us to go. To be honest, I entered a company recently, everything is new and I begin to set up a blog for our comany. I writed some blogs but it can't be indexed by google. In my opinion, we need to focus on writing blogs, then we can see the outcome, therefore, I will insist on doing it.

    Blogging is just one aspect of brand building. It would be best to explore other avenues like blog submission, forum submission, blog commenting, third-party blog submission, business directory, and anything that will give you link equity.

    Nope. None of those suggestions will provide any useful links

    Blogging is a great way to get in front of relevant audience and get them into the top of your funnel. Having a steady and reliable source of organic traffic which pretty much runs on autopilot has been a great experience for me to have for my bunsiness.

    Only if they know your blog exists. Which means you need to do marketing. Which means you don;t really need a blog.

    Blogs help you to promote your website and increase brand awareness. But it is not an important thing. Depends on your nature of business or niche that you have to use blogs for your website or not.

    A blog increases your business visibility fast. Many people read the blog before starting their own business. They collect more information and make their business strategies from the blog. So the blog plays an important role in getting more information online.

    @likeshigh - if you want to buy socks online I doubt you will want to read a blog.

    There are millions of blog posts written everyday. Only a tiny fraction ever get seen. It’s far better to focus on activities that increase profit.

    it depends on your goals: whether you want to atract more traffic, sale product/service or create another stream of income via blog just in case. Although blogging is complex now and you will need to invest time and money in tools, or engage a specialist. You will also need to know how to pick the proper topic and keywords, how to do outreach and interlink posts, what NLP words means, and much more. If you cannot invest in your blog, it will only "eat" your crawl budget and you will get 0 results

    No it's not. You don't need to do any of that stuff.

    Blog is not just a magazine. Basically blog increase your business visibility. We always use keywords that are related to our business. Those keywords visitors are always link to our business sale. Because as more visitor we will get for our business. We will get more sale. So blogging is really important for any business.
