It is not uncommon to find industrial websites that have not been updated for a long time or with outdated content. Providing a cosmetic facelift is not going to improve the site’s performance either. What can you do if a complete website redesign is not feasible?
Adding a blog to your current site is a quick and easy way to breathe new life into an old or underperforming industrial website. Now, every time I mention the word blog to manufacturers and industrial companies, they put on their mental brakes. This is because they think they won’t have anything to write about, at least not as far as publishing new blog posts on a weekly or even a monthly basis.
Here are two practical tips to help you overcome this hurdle of content creation for industrial marketing:
Adding a blog to a website is not complicated but it does require some marketing TLC in order to make the user experience seamless when moving between your frontend site and the blog. Have your IT and Marketing people collaborate on this task or hire a qualified outside consultant to set up a blog.
Do you use a blog site or did you add a blog to an existing industrial website?
