Attract an Audience Blogging enables you to reach the billions of people that use the Internet. Blogging works as a method for attracting an audience because it provides something of value to them before asking for anything in return. By creating a blog that is of value, you can attract an audience and eventually convert them to customers, partners, friends, or otherwise.
Establish Authority Having a blog and writing about important topics that are relevant to your audience establishes yourself as an authority in the space. It enhances your professional image. A blog is to professionals in the 2000s what a business card was in the 1990s. Blogs are the new business cards.
