Have you found yourself asking, how often do I need to blog?
I noticed when I signed up to be a "RainMaker" that some peice of orientation I recieved mentioned that people found the most success when they blog 7-10 times per month on ActiveRain. That is 2-3 times a week. A Great number to strive for.
When deveoping an Internet Marketing Campaign for a client we strongly recommend that you blog 1 time a week. If you are already a client of mine and you have asked me how often do I need to blog… you have heard me say at least 1 time a week.
NOTE: Doing more than 1 post a week will generate more traffic and leads.
Why Do We Recommend Blogging 1 Time a Week?
1. Most of my clients are not interested in doing any blogging. 1 time a week is a digestable number.
2. Research shows that blogging 1 time a week is the point of diminishing return. Meaning that blogging more often does increase your monthly leads but not by a significant number. (courtesy of Hubspot)
3. My personal experience have shown that I still see positive results when I blog once a week. I would love it if someone else would write my blogs for me and I would do 5 blog posts a day.
However,It is my humble opinion that people need to write their own blog posts. After all, they are your clients, and you are the Expert.
