Often my clients don’t know what to write about when it comes to their company blog. Do you feel the same way? How about using your client’s FAQ’s for inspiration. They will tell you in their own way what information they are looking for.
A blog is a perfect platform to answer these questions in small doses, have them categorized and tagged with important keywords.
