Hey, Barb here!Hey, Barb here!

I think by now you'll admit there are a few tips about blogging that help make your experience (and that of your readers) more natural. The reason you're blogging to begin with is to solve problems for your audience and, ultimately, to grow your business. So, all of your blog post ideas should help serve those growth goals. They should have natural tie-ins to issues in your industry and address specific questions and concerns your prospects have.

This is a section of a great blog post I found from HubSpot and I bring it to you attention to kick off this issue of BBH. There's a link to the reminder of this helpful post further down where you can learn some more purpose driven info you can use. So, let's get started!

The WhatThe What

Images & infographics

Using images or infographics in your content means readers will not get tired when reading your informative content. You can use either Images and infographics as natural page breaks for a single page article.

It's also true that Images work better than the content when sharing to social media platforms and you can optimize the images to increase your SEO rankings by more than 40%.
