You’ve built your website, have an amazing email newsletter, and set up your social media profiles, all of which have helped build a strong relationship with your customers. But even with these options already in place, you want to take your relationship building skills to the next level. Good news? You can do this with a blog. If you want to know how to easily add a blog to your website, read on!

Although you don’t have to create a WordPress site, for the purposes of this article, let’s assume you have. If not, the process of adding a blog can be as simple as creating a new page and linking to an existing platform (like Blogger.com). You’ll need to check your site’s documentation to be sure.

If you built your website on WordPress, you’re in luck. The steps are quite simple.

How to add a blog to your website

  1. Add a new page in WordPress.
  2. Name the page.
  3. Publish the page.
  4. Go to the Settings section.
  5. Designate an Articles page.
  6. Determine how many messages you want.

1. Add a new page.

Add a new page in WordPress Add a new page in WordPressLogin to your WordPress dashboard and click on Pages > Add New. This step is pretty self-explanatory. Since you already have an existing business website and want to add a blog, you will need a page for your blog to live. You don’t want it to invade other relevant information on the page. Name the page.

2. Name the page.

Let’s call it “Blog” for easy identification. Leave the text box blank because you want the page to act as a source for your posts, not a static reading page.

3. Publish the page.

Para que su página de blog activates, debe publicarla. No se preocupe por el destino de las publicaciones todavía; lo abordaremos más adelante.

4. Navigate to the Configuration section .

WordPress Website Reading Settings WordPress Website Reading SettingsWhen you’re in your Dashboard, you’ll see a column along the left with all the different things you can do in WordPress. Go to Settings > Reading to bring up the page seen above.

5. Designate a Posts page.

Click on A static page, and then select Blog under the drop-down menu for Posts page. This is important. This step determines where your blog feed appears. Make sure to select “Blog” under the drop-down menu for “Posts page” and not “Front page” — unless of course you want your blog to be the landing page of your business website (probably not).

6. Determine the amount of posts you want.

Esta es una preferencia personal, de verdad. ¿Cuántas publicaciones desea que aparezcan cuando sus lectores hagan clic en Blog ? ¿Cinco? 12? Juega con diferentes cantidades y ve qué opción prefieres. Luego, guarde sus cambios.

7. Escribe y publica tu primer post.

¡Y ahora estás listo para bloguear! Si aún no lo ha hecho, primero debe configurar un calendario editorial  para su contenido para que pueda producir un trabajo consistente y de calidad para sus seguidores.

Consejos para escribir tu primera entrada en el blog

Aquí hay algunos consejos a tener en cuenta al escribir su primera publicación.

No te desanimes.

Ahora que está mirando la página de la publicación en blanco, es posible que sienta algo de pánico por su primera publicación en el blog. Es tu primera publicación, la de lanzar tu blog, la de presentarte a tus lectores. Es un gran problema, ¿verdad? Lo es, seguro, pero no te dejes agotar demasiado. Sí, es la primera publicación, pero no será la única publicación. Tu blog es algo que está destinado a crecer y cambiar con tu negocio.

En ce qui concerne le sujet réel du message, concentrez-vous sur la présentation de vous-même et de votre entreprise avec votre propre voix.

 

Votre premier article est un excellent moyen de jeter les bases de ce que sera votre blog, plutôt que de passer directement aux articles de blog réguliers. Alors oui, le poste est important, mais vous aurez de futurs postes pour continuer à bâtir sur votre socle d’origine.

Restez concentré et attirez les clients.

Customers at a busy station Customers at a busy stationFor a company, the purpose of its blog is to build relationships with its readers to develop its activity. After that first post, how do you continue to generate solid content that will drive your blog forward? The key is to stick to your primary focus, which should be your products and services. When you keep your posts focused on these points, writing your blog content will be easier for you and more effective at capturing your desired readers (and customers).

Promote and share your posts.

First, share your new blogging business on your social media profiles. It’s a great way to humanize your business and gives customers a good starting point for finding new information. Second, consider adding social plugins to your WordPress site.

Make it easy to share and observe visits from new customers thanks to the recommendations of your friends.

 

And if you want to go beyond social media marketing into SEO, there are plenty of WordPress plugins you can take advantage of (Yoast being one of the biggest). These are meant to help you optimize your WordPress blog and posts to make your site more search engine friendly, and are extremely useful if you’ve never run a blog before.
