For one reason or another, we’re pre-programmed to fear big businesses. As a result, we don’t try, we don’t compete, and we simply just give up. Why is that?

One of the biggest challenges that most businesses face is how to keep readers interested and coming back for more. In the typical business setup, it is very linear.

Rather than find more “work” to keep them busy, why not put them to use by having them share something interesting about your business – what does your business do, are there any tips you can share with your customers through your employees, such as how they can connect with you through your social media channels. How about even have them provide insight into certain products or services that you may offer.
Not only will this make work more fun, but your business can also benefit tremendously from the added exposure. I know what you’re thinking though…I don’t want my employees wasting time writing, I want them doing their jobs!
In a sense, they are. They’re also helping you open the door to people that may know your business, but don’t know your full line of products.

Not to mention, the more quality content you product, the more it helps spread the word. Pretty soon, you’ll become the go-to place for your product or service.
