According to Zooma's digital definitions, a business blog is:
"A content area filled with knowledge content."
A business blog can consist of several knowledge assets such as:
This article focuses on how to write an article.
The first step is to define the topic to write about. At Zooma, we use the Topic Cluster Strategy, which means we have some predefined topics that we always write about, such as; Business blogging, Content creation, Customer journey, Digital transformation, Email marketing, and much more.
As we already have predefined topics related to our business and industry, it's easy for me as a content creator to develop topics for the articles.
When you know what to write, it's time to do solid keyword research. This means you need to map out the keywords related to the topic. I use keywords everywhere and google keyword planner to identify search terms.
So, you have the topic and the keywords. Now it's time to reflect on what angle you should take on the subject. Spend a few minutes to write down the needs and solutions your persona has in this specific topic. Based on those, you can formulate your unique perspective on the topic.
When writing the text, I recommend using the AI-Powered writing enhancement, Grammarly. This doesn't only make sure your grammar is correct but also provides suggestions for better formulations.
Use the keywords you've identified to outline the h1, h2, and h3. By structuring the content with popular search terms, you've increased the possibility of the content appearing on search engines. But of course, there is a balance; if you need to include a subheader for the text to be relevant, you should also have that.
When you write a knowledge article, it's essential to keep a personal tone. For example, when writing corporate content for your business, you often use formulations such as "we" and "our company". But in this context, you position yourself as an expert, and the reader is curious about your expertise. Thus, use formulations such as "I" and "my company".
