Blogging is the best investment you can make as a building products company to showcase your expertise. 

 Blogging is the most underrated marketing initiative there is, especially in our industry. An effective blog positions your company as experts in your field while educating the A&D community on your products or services, obtaining organic search traffic to your site in the process. The companies that stand out in the industry and online are the ones who have implemented a strong blogging strategy with consistent content updates and a focus on SEO.

Blogging is an education platform, providing invaluable information to your target audience and a reason to visit your site, exposing them to your expertise and product offering. If you can provide information that answers questions architects and designers are asking, you become a valuable resource and industry leader.
