1: Building Trust Relationships
Blogging allows bloggers to share their expertise and knowledge with a very large audience. Building a loyal audience is something that every small business owner would love to accomplish and bloggers are able to do this by simply sharing their thoughts using their business blogs. Building a community that trusts you and follows your blog updates on a daily basis is one of key ingredients that hundreds of bloggers are using in their business.
2: Easy To Publish
Blog software is simple to use. With push of a few buttons you can post your thoughts, link to resources and publish your blog. Blog software companies provide bloggers with all tools necessary to get started. Bloggers can update their blogs much quicker than a website which usually requires contacting a web designer or uploading yourself.

Don't Buy Your On-Line Marketing Articles From Article FactoriesWritten by Elizabeth Kirwin
I was busiy submitting some articles I ghost wrote for a client to some web portals late one night, when I was struck by a message a web site editor left for visitors. I won’t tell you actual site name, or mention company that they are targeting with their message in order to protect their privacy. But message went something like this. “STOP! If you are submitting articles from article factory, we do NOT publish them on this site.” Hire a Professional Writer to Make Work Publishable This made me pause. I’m a writer by trade and I was submitting original material. I would never even dream of doing otherwise. Many professionals, even most seasoned in their respective fields, cannot write well. So, they usually hire somebody like me to polish their thoughts, and edit their material to make their work publishable and syndicate it on internet. Don’t Buy Unoriginal Material Then there are other crop of professionals, who pay large sums of money to “article factories” who sell them mass produced material. Obviously, “article factories” sold these same articles to others as well. Professionals are eager to purchase articles such as these, because they are not experienced writers and feel they cannot do it themselves. Search engines are text based. So, keyword rich articles syndicated on internet and published on a company home page is one of most effective strategies of driving right kind of traffic to a web site. Site Editors Know Quality Material Web portal editors who regularly recruit original articles are getting wise to “article factories.” Editors are enraged by massive repetitive submissions they receive because it wastes their time to have to weed through crap. Many are just beginning to fight back. If you are guilty of purchasing articles that are sold to large numbers of individuals – stop it now. It won’t get you anywhere. Editors know when they are being dumped on. And they won’t publish this work on world wide web. They will remember who sent it to them, and not in a positive way, either. The Creative Idea is Currency I tell my writing students at University of North Carolina Asheville, that we live in a world starved for creative ideas. Ten years ago, phrase that swept through corporate America was: “thinking out of box.” Now it’s “idea person” who has most currency in a company. But you can’t just be an “idea person” -- you have to know how to execute, too.
