The following article is a guest post.
If you are a business owner or an up and coming entrepreneur, you need to blog. If you are involved in any kind of business venture and want to reinforce your business brand with a touch of the personal, you need to blog.
The reasons that you need to engage in this type of online activity are, in fact, too numerous to list in a short article such as this one. Suffice it to say that it may not be enough for your needs to maintain a purely impersonal, “business only” presence on the web. You may also want people to know just who you are and what you stand for.
Adding a Personal Touch is a Great Way to Influence the Public.
If you want to influence the public in a positive way, it’s a great idea to let them in on a few details related to your personal interests and aspirations.
Business owners, such as Chris Pivik among many others, have long since began blogging in order to spread the word about activities and aspirations that interest and influence them. If you want to be regarded as a similarly successful and credible business owner in the 21st century, it’s a good idea to do your part to put yourself across in the same fashion.
You Can Increase the Value of Your Brand By Becoming More Visible.
You can really do yourself and your business a great deal of good by increasing the value of your personal brand. One of the best ways that you can reach this goal is by becoming more visible on the world wide web.
For example, if you punch in a Google search for “Chris Pivik businessman“, you may come across a great many purely business related articles on this individual. However, you are also bound to encounter quite a few purely personal related posts on this person’s blog. You can increase your own public reputation by following suit.
What Kind of Topics Should a Business Owner Blog About?
You can pick any kind of topics in the world to blog about. Your first priority should be to cover business in your official company blog. However, from there, you can also establish links to your purely personal blog.
For example, if you love to participate in outdoor sports, it’s a great idea to blog on this topic as well. If you have a frequent hand in charitable activities, you’ll want to blog on this topic. By spreading the word about your interests and activities, you give the public a much more accessible picture of your true personality, thus “humanizing” your business.
A Visible and Accessible Business Owner is a Trusted Public Figure.
The ultimate reason to use the potential of blogging on the internet is to become a well known and trusted figure in the public consciousness.
A business owner who achieves this becomes a respected, influential, and highly sought after figure. If you want to be the next big celebrity on the web, this is the best way to throw your hat in the ring.
The positive publicity you get for your blogging efforts may just be the impetus you need to send your business to a whole new level of success.
