They love engaging with words. We’re a verbal species. Blogs and longer content are excellent tools for brand building.
OVERVIEW OF WHAT TO SHARE
Experiences. Stories sell, man. Sell them.
Industry trends. Talk about them and comment on them. You’re part of the playground, so be part of it.
HOW TO MEET YOUR OBJECTIVES

Reduced bounce rate.
Post views as well as profile views.
Demographics of your readers (industries, job titles, locations, and traffic sources).
