Here’s some quick tips for using your blog profitably:

  • Blog at least weekly
  • Create content that’s useful to your readers
  • Always have a call to action in each blog post
  • Use your blog to grow an email subscriber list – don’t forget to subscribe to our blog if you haven’t already!

It can be hard to find a glut of blogging stats all wrapped up in one place, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this infographic. It had a lot of data and statistics regarding blogging, and while a lot of it is US-centric, it does offer up some tasty nuggets. For example, 61% of US consumers have made a purchase based on a blog post. Not bad!
