Do I need a Business Blog?
Business blogging provides a simple yet effective means of communicating with your clients and potential customers.
A blog can be added to your existing website, or our blogging platform can encompass an entire business website together with a blog combined with loads of features.
Blogs are of great importance in the new world of social media. Your business blog will provide the cornerstone (or hub) of your social media presence.
Our website packages give you some great options to refresh a tired site which will enable it to grow with your business – without the ongoing involvement of a web developer every time you want to add or delete something. You can start with or without a blog; the choice is yours – but at least the function is waiting for you when you’re ready to take the leap.

Do I really need to get involved with this ‘social media’?
The choice is up to you, but you can’t ignore the many benefits of social media. That would just be wrong – sticking your head in the sand won’t make it go away. There are many benefits for a small business to start utilising social media, such as providing a ‘face’ and a more personal touch to doing business. Let’s be honest, people will more readily do business with people they can relate to – not a faceless corporation.
The great thing is that major networking sites, such as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin all allow blog content to appear. So the FIRST STEP in getting started with social media is to create and write a blog. Yes, that’s right – a business blog.
Once you have written your content, we can then save you time by automatically having it published on these multiple networks at the touch of a button.
If it all sounds a bit daunting – have no fear – we will walk you through the blogging process step-by-step and give you some great resources to help you along the way.
