In this article I am going to share with you why do you need a blog for your home based business. If you are looking to start a business that you can work on your spare time so you can generate extra income, you need to learn the skills to build a successful business. Because building a home based business needs some time so you can learn and master the skills needed for you to become successful. One of the key element to become successful in building a home based business is to have a blog. Not just an ordinary blog that is hosted on a free platform but you need to have a self-hosted wordpress blog.

So why do you need a blog for your home based business: Why Do You Need A Blog For Your Home Based Business

1. Your blog is your home based on the internet – without a blog is like being an NPA or a business with No Permanent Address. You need to have a home based online if you want to become successful in your online home business.

2. Your blog is the place where you build and establish your authority on the internet – meaning this is where you can showcase more of your expertise skills and most of all your value so you can attract your target market.

3. Your blog is where you build stronger relationship and establish trust with your leads, customers, prospects and followers – this is the place where you can provide more value to your readers.

4. Your blog is a place where your readers and followers can get to know you better and a place where you can sign up people into your primary business.

Just to reiterate, you need a blog for your home based business because first it is your home based online, a place where you build and establish your authority on the internet, meaning it is where you can share more of your knowledge and expertise and provide more value to your readers, it is a place where you build stronger relationship and establish trust with your leads, customers, prospects and followers and a place where your readers and followers can get to know you better and last but not the least a place where you can sign up people into your primary business.

So there you have it. I hope that you have learned something from this short article about why do you need a blog for your home based business.

I never thought of it this way - that my blog is my home based online. From this perspective you would write content to introduce your visitors to your home - ie. who you are, your areas of expertise, what you can share, what you have to sell. Good analogy! Thanks, I enjoyed your post.

Hi, Sonny! I agree-blog is essential for our online business. Trying to make a success in online business without blog is like trying to quench your thirst without liquid. Bloggers need to recognize that their blog is the first step towards business, but they also need to have a business plan and they need to visualize their goals. Without knowing what we want, there is no way we can achieve anything, whether being online or offline.It's a general principle that needs to be respected.

Good points, Sonny. For me, blogs are important for 2 huge reasons. 1. It is a great method for relationship building which I think is a top priority for any business. 2. It is a great way to get information out of, because most blogs are up to date with the latest info.

Awesome tips, Sonny. I like your analogy of a blog being like a business address for a traditional company. It was where you build your brand and position yourself as an expert in your niche. You're right...what people need is a self hosted blog like wordpress.org because they have control of their content and that can't be taken away from them. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely true Sonny... Social Media profiles and pages make great satellites to a central hub, but a self hosted blog is the best option for the anchor point where your main offer and opt-in in based. As you've said as well, the blog format is an ideal place for building relationships and connecting with customers or prospects Great advice - I hope everyone hoping to build a home business heeds it!

Love what Ryan said - your website is your shop front, expose you , your services and your products. Why be on the web with no proper web presence.

Hi Sonny, Super tips and an important reminder. Your blog is one stop shopping for a web visitor. It's content central for you, displaying your blog posts, videos, reviews, interviews, and your home based opportunity. A person gets to know exactly what you're about by visiting a value-packed, engaging blog. Thanks for sharing! Ryan
