The Future of Blogging

The future of blogging will make more of a transition from a personal aspect to a business oriented platform which will assist businesses with personalizing themselves. Blogging is still and will continue to be an integral part of Social Media. Although people love the quick characters of Twitter and the paragraphs on Facebook, they still seek and yearn for more places to connect and articles that help them relate to the Online communities they have chosen.

I think businesses will capitalize on this knowledge as more Industries jump aboard the Social Media train. In the future, more blogs will be seen on websites and act as a side-kick or personality of the business. Blogs will also be a great forum to share their other online participation from YouTube videos and photos that will enhance their online presence.

Businesses and blogging in the future will go hand-in-hand as means to suffice their communities demands of having the ability to communicate and connect. The continuing strength will propel businesses into the blogging sphere to ensure their communities are being supplied with ample locations of engagement.

Yes, many people have taken to blogging and differentiating between who is what and what is credible anymore has become null. However, that is a part of the transformation of what blogging was, to what it is becoming - which is - switching from dominating writers to hoping they get readers to dominating readers hoping that there are writers.

Our society is always looking for ways to connect and blogging can be a great outlet to do this. That is why the future of blogging is bright for businesses and in the continuation of the reason social media was formed - allowing people to engage with people. This is just another example of why businesses will utilize blogging as a way to increase their SEO, improve their online reputation, and maintain their presence while personalizing their business and connecting with their consumers through blogging. This is the future of blogging which has already begun today and will seep well into our tomorrows.

Great insights and I believe you are exactly right. We have been able to capture more of Google page one resulte for a multitude of search terms by utilizing wordpress and other formats for our Dealership. Not only that obvious benefit, but by providing information and establishing yourself as a "go to" source for information, you capture many more high funnell shoppers. Best of all blogging allows the freedom to infuse your Dealership or business's personality into your posts and share your culture with prospective clients. This of course can be a double edged sword, so all posts should be coordinated and approved by someone in charge of on-line presence. Thanks for a great and timely reminder.

One way I utilize blogs as a consumer is to evaluate a product or company before I make a purchase or sign a contract. As a marketer I use blogs for a multitude of reasons from seo, targeted messages, informational posts, brand awareness, customer engagement and for research purposes. Blogs are tremendously versatile and can serve many purposes.
