NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — As the social media marketing environment continues to evolve, more and more small business owners are leveraging their business blog as the foundation of their online marketing strategy. Continuing to create relevant content that will resonate with customers is a key marketing tactic that can drive traffic back to their site and keep customers coming back for more.

According to Steve Lazuka, founder of Interact Media, continuing to come up with fresh content on a continual basis is one of the most demanding aspects of an inbound marketer. He suggests adding the following five types of blog content into the content rotation:

  • Tutorials: Provide an opportunity to showcase products and services in a variety of ways.
  • Lists: People like lists and they translate well into blog content.
  • Transcripts: Repurpose event transcripts to remain useful.
  • Opinion Post: Establish thought leadership.
  • Roundups: Excellent way to draw in readers and provide a good source of information.
