From Pillar to Post: 7 Ways to Vary Your Blog

September 7th, 2015

We’ve previously written about developing themes as part of a content strategy, but the topic of a blog post is not the only dimension. When planning out your blog with a writer, you should think about the structure of the blogs, and what kind of response you want from them.

For small businesses, there are seven content types that we are asked to provide on a regular basis. To vary your blog content, and keep your readers engaged, cycle through these seven content types as you plan out your topics and approach.

Content Type 1: Pillar Posts

Pillar posts get their name from their purpose: they prop the website up over time. While your static service pages tell people what you do, the pillar posts should prove how well you do it. They are the shareable, […]

How We Price Our Blogging Services

September 4th, 2015

When pricing business blogging services, it’s important to ensure you’re getting what you paid for.

Here’s how we build our prices.

Requirements for Blogging Services

We will initially quote you a block price for the blogging services you ask for. (We don’t charge for time to the minute, since we find that it’s difficult for clients to budget for.)

Our minimum price is for a 500-word blog; we’re happy to write shorter blogs, but the price is the same as a 500-word piece.

The price for blogging services can vary from client to client, according to:

  • The industry, sector or market
  • The level of technical detail in the blogs (if any)
  • The amount of control you want to retain
  • The quantity of blogs you need
  • Whether you need us to travel

If you need more than 500 words per blog, we will simply scale up this base price accordingly. In other words, a 2,500 word ‘how-to’ article will cost five times the base price.

Each blog is […]

August 26th, 2015

When businesses approach us for blogs, strategy is always a sticking point. Often, business people find it difficult to formulate titles, or run out of steam quite quickly after an initial burst of enthusiasm. While having a content strategy isn’t essential, it can help propel your blog, keep it interesting, and ensure your blog content is varied and balanced.content strategy

Some businesses spend thousands of pounds on content marketing each year. On a micro business level, your budget won’t be anywhere near that. Time is a factor, too; it’s very difficult to compete with established voices when you barely have time to write a shopping list.

A content strategy could help you to structure your content marketing, formulate ideas, and outsource management. With your strategy decided in advance, you can let us take care of content production, yet […]

There are thousands of great freelance content writers bidding for your custom. Google searches prove it. Many will have their own plus points and specialisms; some may offer cheap prices for blogs. When you’re searching for freelance help, it can be difficult to dig deep into their skills.

Knowledge is Power
