ERP Consultant blog How toAs an ERP consultant, your time is valuable and you have so much ERP expertise in your how do you find time to share your exapeience and expertise with others to help find and attract new customers? At ERPVAR, we have a goal to blog every day. Most of our blogs are guest blogs that come from other ERP consultants who are experts like you. Some ERP consultants are fortunate enough to have a marketing person to do most of the heaving blog lifting. However, many still do not and find the time to blog.

ERP Consultant 9 More Tips on HOW to Blog Effectively

  1. Readers Tend to like Bullets and Numbers:  Try to include bullets or numbers in blog.  People like to read blogs that have a number of things in the title that they will learn from reading your blog. This way your reader will know what they are getting when they read your blog.  For example: “5 Ways, 5 Reasons, 5 Tips, etc.” Bullets may also be a way to easily organize your points to stand out to the reader. 
  2. Tips & Tricks & Questions You Already Answer for Customers:  ERP software tips and tricks are an easy way to generate content for your blog. You have consultants who answer questions for clients all week.  Some of these questions and answers can be easily turned into a blog. Screen shots are a great way to illustrate your answer in a step by step manner.
  3. Create a Blog Series:  If you don’t have a URL associated with a keyword, then Part I-V blogs are recommended to link original blog to subsequent blogs written with keyword focus. This creates valuable links tying keyword from one link to another helps for SEO purposes.
  4. Share Your Blog in Customer Forums:  ERP customer forums are a great way to find popular customer issues and questions and attract potential prospects. When you write a blog about the issue or question on a forum you can then respond to a customer question on the forum with a link to your blog.  Most ERP software customer forums that belong to publishers like Sage, Intuit, Dynamics, etc...will allow you to post a blog link while there are some that will not. Some forums try to prevent responses that look like solicitations so adding a link to a blog is a great way to be informative without being overtly promotional. Posting a blog on a forum provides you with a link to a forum with high SEO authority which is good for SEO purposes.
  5. Share your Blog in LinkedIn Groups: Do you belong to LinkedIn Groups that your customers or target customers join? Sharing blogs to relevant groups are a great way to demonstrate your expertise. If you have a specialized industry focus like the "medical device" field, then find out where those potential future customers hang out in LinkedIn and get involved.
  6. Informative Beats Promotional:  Try to avoid being too promotional in the body of your blog. Blogs are best received when they have valuable informative content for the reader. Blogs that are controversial and reflect the writer’s personality are often shared in social media which creates valuable links for SEO purposes. Save your pitch or about your company at the end of the blog and limit it to 1-2 paragraphs.
  7. Action Item or CTA:  Always include an action item or call to action (CTA) in your blog.  What is the reader supposed to do after reading your blog? For example: contact us for a free needs assessment, contact us, visit our website, read our free e-book. Your CTA can be an image associated with a CTA page.
  8. Length of Blogs:  Blogs should be 600 words or more but not too long. If you have 1,200 words in a blog, consider breaking it up into 2 blogs. This may be too long to keep the reader engaged.
  9. Promote at the End:  Always include an about company and about the products and services you support at the end of your blog along with your CTA.
