Why should I create a blog?

Blogs are also an excellent way to improve your site’s SEO ranking, build brand loyalty and earn extra income while growing your business. 

Should I start a blog for my business?

Creating a blog for your business is one of the most effective marketing tools at your disposal. Blog entries let you communicate with your site visitors and customers using a personal voice and tone, giving them a strong understanding of your business. This evokes customer loyalty as it provides your audience with a way to engage with your brand. Blogs can also help you understand your audience’s interests, enabling you to optimize your marketing strategy and products to better suit their needs.

How do I choose the right blogging platform?

Publishing your blog and making it exactly the way you want is essential to bringing your ideas to life. Deciding which platform you want to use to build your blog is an important first step. When you create your blogging website with Wix, all your content is stored on secure servers, plus you get free hosting as soon as you publish. You can also buy a new domain, or connect one you already own and get access to all the analytics you need to optimize your blog.
