Blogs vs. Traditional Websites

blogs vs. websitesHave Blogs Brought an End to Conventional Websites?

According to Problogger, one of the most highly respected (and best paid) bloggers of our time, the answer is, Yes.

“…Blogs are cheap, easy, efficient, wildly easy to find on the Internet,  marketing-friendly, and just plain fun. They run circles around websites.”

Have conventional websites become obsolete? Here are some of the answers:

  1. Websites are clunky and expensive; blogs are lean and cheap.
  2. You have to wait for someone to make changes to your website. Once your blog is set up, you can easily make changes yourself.
  3. You can learn more about your visitors from a blog.
  4. You can update your blog from anywhere, even your phone, while you are on the run.
  5. You can collect email addresses, and download free reports and bonuses off of a website. Same with a blog.
  6. You can use a shopping cart to collect money for e-commerce with a website. Same with a blog.
  7. You can set up a promo page with all sorts of cool links and forms on a website. Same with a blog.
  8. It takes three to six months for the big search engines to find you with a website. It takes two or three days with a blog.
  9. You can easily track stats of who has visited your regular website. Same with a blog.
  10. The media are more likely to find you on a blog.

This list could go on and on, but you get the gist. Blogs are the answer to your marketing needs. So if you’re thinking about a website, stop in your tracks and run towards a blog instead!
