The case for adding a blog to your website

By Achim Neumann

While most business owners understand the importance of having a web presence in 2016, many do not understand how a blog can be useful for their company and actually be an asset for possible investors/increase a business valuation.

From boosting a business’ profile in the search rankings, to establishing a business as the dominant brand in their market, there are numerous benefits to adding a blog to a website. Below, we will discuss several major reasons considerations for doing so.

They help drive traffic

Links are the backbone of the Internet, as Google and other search engines use them to evaluate a website’s relevance with respect to common search queries. For example, if a website had links going back to it from,, etc, Google would most likely rank it higher than a similar website that didn’t.

Internally linking withing a website is also important as it lets Google and the other search engines more easily crawl and index. While creating internal links across your website (frequent blog postsmakes this easier) is important, external sites that link to a website will make the biggest difference in its overall ranking.

When engaging blog posts relating to a company’s field are written, other sites will often link to them, which will help build the domain authority of the entire site.

Mailing lists help create a pool of potential sales leads

With increased traffic to a businesses’ website comes opportunity. These new visitors can become long-term assets to a company if they can be convinced to sign up for a mailing list.

Using calls to action within blog posts on various topics, visitors may choose to add their e-mail address to a form that can be used at a later date to market specific products, services, or promotions to these opting-in prospects.

Crafting a brand becomes easier

A blog makes it easy to create a narrative around the products that the business sells, which will help differentiate it from the competition.

Combined with social media, a well-written blog can have a real impact within a relatively short period of time, as it allows the author to adopt a persona that appeals to a company’s target demographic.

It will build a businesses’ authority in certain fields

By drawing on their many years of experience in business, the author of a company blog can become an authority figure in a specific field via a series of well-written and promoted articles.

By commenting on current issues in their industry, proposing new ways to approach common problems, and by providing value to customers, the blog will increase the value of the website in the eyes of its regular visitors (as well as potential investors).

As a result, these engaged individuals will be more likely to be patronize the business in the future, as it will have developed a reputation for being a leader in the industry.

Client Testimonials

“I had been in touch with Karin and Gary from A Neumann & Associates regarding some opportunities and was looking forward to meeting with them. Hence, when they organized a seminar in Princeton, NJ, I was quick to sign up. The seminar was very informative as the team walked the attendees through various scenarios and referenced real life buying/selling situations they had been through. The sessions by Gary, Karin and Achim were crisp and focused and brought clarity to potential seller and buyers. I strongly recommend the team and look forward to continue working with them.”

Gaurav Tyagi

“Thank you for your Event on "How to value, Sell, and Buy A Business for Maximum Profit" and the insight into ANA’s approach on what is involved in the Business Exit for sellers. Garys Hervieiou's "Business Valuation", Achim's "Deal structure" presentation and Karin’s "Preparing the Package" are real street knowledge shared. They answered attendees questions which makes it more interesting for learning from others. Great for small businesses like us. The presentations were totally worth our time and travel for the event to Princeton, NJ from Rockville MD. Ravi Bhutani, President, CIPS”

Ravi Bhutani

“Gary, this is to thank you for an excellent job done in selling our business. We could never have done it without your professional expertise, dedication and time put in without reservation to make it happen. We will gladly and highly recommend you to anybody in our position.  It was a pleasure to work with you.”

Pat Iammatteo, Owner

“Your vetting is simply outstanding, among the best I've seen from a broker.”

Eric H., Investor

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Marc, who explained the process in detail. After meeting with Marc in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using to sell my business for max value. Working with Marc at A Neumann & Associates was very easy and professional. I did not know all that was going to be involved in selling my business but they helped me through the process. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. Marc not only knows his stuff, but actually is a real nice guy.”

Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”

“Claus out of Florida helped us with the sale of our business. We had never done anything like this and him and his team walked us through the process from start to finish. We had some challenges through the process and Claus continued to show up even in the difficult conversations.”

Colby Harris, Co-Owner, Del Mar Designs

“Claus Madsen thoroughly helped us with selling our company. From the 1st introductory meeting explaining to us what was possible, to providing us with resources to assist with the sale. Claus was invaluable throughout the whole sales process. Claus was with us every step of the journey and always made himself available for any questions or issues that came up along the way. If you are interested in selling your business, I encourage you to reach out to Claus and the ANA team so that they can let you know what’s achievable. These guys will make it happen!”
