So you have already decided to do blogging and content marketing for your brand. You understand how that’s going to have an impact in the long-term success for your business. Not only will you reach more audience, it’s also a great way to connect with other experts in your industry.

But the question is, what do you write about? Having a blog with no readers is the fear of almost every blogger and that’s why I’ve come up with 5 different types of content that your readers will love.

How do you create a blog that matters to your readers? What kind of content do you write that’s worth reading. If you’re at a lost where to start, here are some ideas that you can include in your website.

Product or Service Benefits

If you’ve done deep market research, by now you have a good understanding of the group of people you’re trying to serve. You understand their pains, passion and obstacles that they encounter. This puts you at a huge advantage than other businesses in your niche. Enthusiastically describe the benefits of the product or service that you are selling or offering. Be detailed about it. Highlight its strong points and what makes it unique. Write informative content about it and your audience will be loyal to you because they know you have their best interest in mind.


Use your business blog to inform your readers what you’ve been working on. People want to get to know you as well. These can include the launching of a new product or upcoming promos that your customers should watch out for. Build anticipation, create that buzz and always relate it to how you’re going to be able to improve your readers lives. Be creative so that your customers will be enticed to watch out for your upcoming products and promos. All these will surely contribute to the success of your blogging for business efforts.


The biggest fear that holds most people back is the fear of uncertainty. By offering tutorials that are related to the operation or functionality of your product or service, you’re showing your prospects a little insight on what you offer. Make it a point to give your readers some quick wins. If you can make their lives better with free information, they’re going to wonder what else you have in your paid area.

Related Information

Your audience wants to know everything they could about the topic you teach. The more resources you can provide them, the better. Don’t be scared to share other people’s information in your website. If you act like a filter for you audience, they will appreciate that. This will make your blog more interesting and more useful to visitors.

Testimonies from Satisfied Customers

You can do this creatively to show how your service or product has helped others solve their problems. Show don’t tell. Let your prospective clients see their stories of struggle in the success of the people you’ve helped. Nothing sells better than results.

These are some of the many types of content that your existing or prospective customers would like to see in your blog. With blogging for business done the right way, you’ll surely have more customers coming in.

  1. Hi Jan,

    I’ve been blogging for 2 years now. Wow. Time really does fly! I’ve always written my own posts. I’ve been approached by other bloggers to do guest posts and I have never done that. I wasn’t sure if I wanted other people’s „stuff“ on my blog. You do make a compelling argument for being a filter for my readers and finding high quality articles that other bloggers have written. It would be compiling the best stuff in one place. It would make it easier for my readers to get to read helpful articles.

    How about a suggestion for a 6th kind of content? Posts that are there strictly for entertainment purposes only. I wrote an article about how I had to catch a 4 foot long black snake that was terrorizing the kids in my neighborhood. It is a great story and it had no other purpose than to entertain my readers.

      Hey Richard,
      thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!

      Guest posting is a good way to boost your blog, but you need to make sure that those posts do fit your target audience and meet your quality standards. If you manage to find a good guest author, it’s easy to grow your blog by attracting his following to your page and bringing more relevant content to your readers.

      Posts for entertainment are a very interesting idea – but I usually use social media to share those little stories.
      I would love to hear your experiences on how those posts influence the interaction and engagement of your readers!

      Best regards,
