MANY RETAILERS TELL us that they have a website, but that they are not getting the amount of traffic to the site that they were hoping for. One good way to do that is to make a blog part of your ongoing digital marketing plan.

A blog gives you the opportunity to create creative, relevant content. This is used to drive traffic back to your website. The use of the blog should be the foundation for all of your social media platforms. Blog links with relevant content give your social followers a reason to click through to your website. Inbound links mentioned directly in your blogs can also drive traffic to specific landing pages of your website.

Blog posts will also increase search engine optimization (SEO). New content is key to staying ahead of your competitors on the search engine results page. Blogging consistently and regularly about your business, industry and products will naturally increase your search keywords. Keywords on your site are a significant way in which Google finds your site when it is looking for relevant content.

Finally, blogging is the best way to emphasize the human angle of your business. It’s where you find your voice and give your business a sense of realism. You can address issues and provide solutions that add value to what your company has to offer. A blog gives your business a personality to increase how likeable your brand is. Blogging gives you that unique identifier that makes you stand out from the competition.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
