I’ve had two blogs and a handmade business; now I’m looking to start a small brick and mortar business with my husband. We’re practically paralyzed by all the information that we don’t know! That says to me that there is a lot left to be written. I’ve yet to find what I am really looking for–a business blog that lays out the basics and beyond in a simple, straightforward, and interesting way.
10+ Blog Writing Prompts: Business Blog
Here are some topics you could start with!
I’ve read loads about SEO, but very little about what good numbers for blog traffic actually look like! What is good traffic for a beginner? 10 daily visitors, 100, 1000? At what number might advertising be an option? How long should I expect it to take to get there? How much time should I allow for growth without profit before deciding it’s time to revamp?
It’s hard to get started when you don’t know what you don’t know! After your first genuis idea, what do you do next in starting a business? And next after that? Who do you call, what professionals do you need to hire?
This is something I constantly worry about; I imagine liability to be a monster waiting to attack and destroy us from the least expected quarter. Ok, maybe I’ve read about too many ridiculous lawsuits, but seriously…what things need to be considered in protecting a business?
What kinds of lawyers are there? What kind does a business need? How is a reasonable range of potential costs? How do you find a good one?
Do you have experience with Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, or another crowdfunding platform? Tell your story, whether successful or a cautionary tale. Do you have a business loan? Did you start your business with your own savings? These are things would-be business owners want to know!
This is a just a sampling of the kinds of things people want to know about businesses when they are starting out! Let others benefit from your experience, and don’t forget to tell stories! Stories are engaging and easy to learn from.
