Looking for a new blogging strategy? Trying to reach more people and increase engagement? Check the stats. Search Engine Journal put together some statistics about blogging, and found that many bloggers aren't implementing the most successful strategies! For example they said, "Only 18% of those surveyed are publishing articles of 2000 words or more. Out of those who are publishing 2000+ word article, 42% say it drives strong results." Also, the frequency at which articles are posted is going down and few post more than once a week. However, 46% of those surveyed that post more than once a week said they see strong results. It's not always viable to post 2,000 word articles multiple times a week - that's why we think a healthy mix of short and long blog posts drive the best results.

If your content marketing strategy isn’t working, don’t write off content marketing completely! There are many other options to try. Neil Patel recommends keeping your blogging style conversational by using the words “you” and “I.” When you do create that quality content, share it! Social sites are a great way to increase traffic to your website and get more eyes on that great content you created. In conclusion Patel says, “Before you do any form of content marketing, make sure you are really going after an audience that will buy your products and services. Once you’ve got the targeting down, then start cranking out content, promoting it and building a community.”
