Blogging Tips For Training Providers


Many MD's and Owners of training companies are reluctant to invest considerable time and money into blogging, believing that it's just a passing trend that will soon be forgotten - along with many other passing Marketing trends.  

Ask a Marketing Manager for their view and they will proclaim enthusiastically how blogging is a silver bullet that will transform brand awareness, lead generation and search engine performance - helping you secure more apprentices, adult learners and key accounts.

The truth is that, although not a golden panacea for new business development, blogging - and more broadly content creation - is one of the fundamental activities you now need to be involved with from a Digital Marketing perspective.

Indeed, the latest version of Hubspot's Inbound Marketing Report revealed some headline statistics; 

1. Grow Relevant Traffic  – eMarketer states that 60% of US web users read one blog per month. Similarly, HubSpot report 46% of people online read blogs each day.

2. Grow Your Leads – Organisations that blog generate 67% more leads than those that do not.

3. Acquire New Business – The HubSpot report identified as much as 82% of businesses blogging everyday generate new business through your training provider blog.

4. Drive Strong ROI – HubSpot reports that up to 79% of businesses that blogged drove strong ROI. 

5. Generate Long-Term Performance – HubSpot highlighted that 70% of monthly web visitors were not driven through active blogs – but from older blogs that exist on the internet for eternity.

There are also a range of other benefits that you can leverage through regular, high-quality blogging / content creation, including; positioning yourself as a thought-leader in your field, building healthy relationships with current key accounts, and enhancing your social media profile by integrating this with your blogging activity.
