Before you go any further with your small business, gather your ideas and aspirations and make a business plan.
Basically a plan for any business covers where are you now with your business, and what do you want to do ?
Your plan can be as short as one page; see : “How to create a one page business plan.”.
If you will need a loan to get your business started, you should have a more detailed plan for your business, such as following the SCORE template guide.
A business plan helps you organize your thoughts about your business.

Blogging can help market / advertise your business product or service.
A “blog” (contraction of the terms web log or weblog) is a category of website where brief articles are posted periodically. In addition to text, the posts can contain photos / images, graphics, or even videos.
Many small businesses use blog posts to tell visitors about the products or services that they provide. They make their blogs interesting and informative. They post new articles on a regular basis, to keep visitors coming back to see the latest, or to subscribe to the business’ RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed from their website (so the visitors can see the new blogs as they are posted, without having to go to the business’ website). Then these website visitors buy those products or services.
Blogs can bring more visitors to your website, more customers to your business, and that means more opportunities for sales.
Just remember : When you write a blog for your business, you want to share information about your product or service that sounds:
- curious and/or unusual (but true),
- and is easy to understand and remember.

Duplicate content on your website can hurt your search engine ranking, and make a bad first impression with your website visitors. Don’t do it!
Have you ever been researching a subject on the internet, and gone to a site and remember seeing the very same wording, on a site you were on just a few minutes prior? Déjà vu, but not in a good way.
You have probably heard the old quotation from Charles Caleb Colton, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” Others call it plagiarism. But search engines do not like seeing exactly the same content on more than one website, just like you don’t.
Even if one web page was published prior to the page with duplicate content, search engines don’t always give the credit to the site that published the content originally. Some search engines drop both websites’ duplicate pages from their listings.
People (and search engine robots) who visit your website want to see what to see your unique and interesting information; what makes your business, product, or topic stand out from others.
To retain credit and search engine visibility for your content, you can see what other websites have posted the same or very similar content at the Copyscape website.
If you find your content on other websites, you can modify your content to make it your own by:
- adding information that is specific to your own website (this is best)
- changing some of the words, using synonyms
- changing or adding headings
- restructuring several sentences in each paragraph

The data shows, regardless of changes to search engine algorithms, content is still KING; and content writing is still important to help your business through your website.
To paraphrase the great Dale Carnegie, you need to write what you believe your clients would be interested in and what will be helpful to them, not just what you want to say or what is important to you.
Do you really think people just want to hear about your product or service? No! They have their own problems and concerns.
Write to get people’s attention and to provide good, helpful solutions for problems; problems that can be solved with your product or service:
- Storm, wind, rain, and ice can damage the roof on your home. Normal weather will damage your roof over time. Are you concerned about your roof lasting through the storm season? We can help! Our trained and experienced technicians can thoroughly inspect your roof for free. Your roof may only need some simple repairs. Call us today for your free inspection and estimate.
- Do you feel good, and enjoy each day to the fullest? Or do persistent aches and pains keep you from feeling and doing your best? Don’t continue to suffer with neck or back pain. Often this pain can be relieved with a simple chiropractic adjustment. Make an appointment today to see our chiropractor. Following a thorough examination, you will be given a diagnosis and a recommendation for treatments for pain relief.
These are just short paragraphs, but they could be expanded into a helpful 300 word article that would help more people find out about your business. Add an interesting related image, and a good, related keyword, and you are on your way to better results with better content writing.
If your website isn’t bringing you the clients you want it to, Contact Jax SEO Works for a free review and some suggestions how it could be improved. Often a look from another perspective like this could be helpful.
