When creating content for your business, consider your own time schedule and talents. Sitting down to write a white paper may be painful for many people, and small businesses may not have the time or resources to produce one.

If you curate and share content from others, your audience will look to you as a reliable source for information on a specific topic. A secondary benefit of sharing third-party content is that you build relationships by broadening the conversation with others within your industry.

Tip 5: Keep track of how your posts are performing:

Make sure you track all the comments and responses that your blogging or content brings in. If you find that one piece is getting more interest, then tailor your approach to focusing on exploiting that, if you find that a certain piece isn’t getting much interest, then scale back. You need to keep moving in time with the market response and keeping on top of this will yield positive results and ultimately translate into more sales and business growth.
