Sales blogs have been around for many years now and there are huge amounts of useful information to be found on them. But many are also full of tripe. Blogs are used for everything and are everywhere; you can find blogs on auto insurance or birthday flowers, but you may wonder, why worry about them? Actually blogs are becoming a primary mode of research because of their variability and because different blogs can offer different perspectives on a common topic.
Think of sales for instance - there are hundreds, maybe even tens of thousands of blogs on the subject and topics relating to it. Inside that mass is a lot of useful information from sales insiders who made it big, found the key to boosting sales or lead generation, or perhaps even wrote a blog that answers a long time issue you have been having. With all that information out there and more being made every day it is an important research tool to let you learn more but in an easy to digest format.
So if you are someone interested in learning more about sales or how to improve your craft but want to find the best, what are some of the top things to look for in a blog before you subscribe? Well, readability is a huge one. Many people read blogs before bed or first thing in the morning, so they are not looking for lengthy essays - they want the quick and dirty on their topic and even learn some good tips. So finding a blog that delivers this to you is key.
This is another great one you should consider - before you subscribe to a blog is it regularly updated? Does this person provide you with a steady stream of new ideas or insight into your sales world or was that one good article you read their only one? You need someone who will update their work often and keep generating new content so you can keep learning. A good rule of thumb is if they haven’t posted roughly every two weeks than you should find a better, more reliable blog to subscribe to. It’s both quality and quantity in this case.
Was the content powerful, moving, soul changing? Well that might be too much to ask from any sales blog but really was it something you would share with others? This is a big key as to whether it is good, useful, or applicable information - whether you were willing to share some of the blogs with others through a social media site or send it through email. If the blogger is doing great work, stays on track and writes just what you need in your sales world then you should be sharing it regularly with others who could learn from it.
So if you need to find a good blog that fits your needs and helps to both entertain and teach you, then follow these tips and you will be able to put the experience of others into your pocket.
