Successful Business Blogging for B2B Companies

Written by: Phillip Nones

In the world of inbound marketing, blogging isn’t just beneficial – it’s fundamental.  Publishing blog posts gives people a reason to visit your website on a regular basis.  More traffic means more potential for engagement, more contact form submissions, and hence more potential to attract client inquiries and other leads.

However, just having a blog doesn’t cut it.  Bland, predictable content is ineffective and won’t engage readers.  Instead, aim to be as informative as possible – along with publishing content that speaks to your target audience’s biggest pain points.  Blogging is beneficial no matter where your prospects are in the purchasing process, which is another reason why it’s effective.

It’s also wise to create blog posts with search engine optimization in mind, since one of the big benefits of blogging is pulling in readers who might not find your website otherwise.

And here’s yet another benefit:  Many well-crafted posts are likely to continue attracting readers long after they’re published, assuming the information has “evergreen” qualities.  Older blog posts that are bringing in a decent amount of organic traffic can be updated, too.  It takes just a little effort, and it will help the articles retain their usefulness and continue to generate leads.

Important COVID-19 Announcement

At Mullin/Ashley, we’re very concerned about the well-being of our customers, employees, business partners and communities currently battling to control the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that effective Monday, March 23, 2020, all non-essential businesses in the state must close their offices.  A follow-up pronouncement on March 30 instituted further “stay-at-home” orders for Maryland residents.

We are complying with these mandates.  In fact, in anticipation of the Governor’s announcements, we had already taken steps to reduce our social footprint by setting up all Mullin/Ashley employees to work from home, with no interruption in the delivery of services.

In addition, travel activities by our staff have been severely curtailed since early March.

By taking these steps, we’re committed to continuing to provide our customers with the services they need, even as we work to reduce our social footprint.

As of July, certain workplace restrictions have been lifted but social distancing mandates continue in force.  We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will continue to take all necessary steps to minimize the risks from the COVID-19 virus.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work collectively to control the Coronavirus threat.
