Dec 05, 2013, 12:16 ET from PR Newswire Association LLC

NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2013 /PR Newswire/ -- Blogging isn't as simple as setting up a template and producing good content; to be successful, brands have to be strategic about the type of content they push out. Often, there is a focus on long-lasting, or evergreen, content because it can provide value for years to come and be repurposed periodically over different channels. It is equally as important that small business blogs understand the value of seasonal content and how to use it to their benefit to increase traffic and drive brand awareness in new audiences—when used effectively, it can serve as a "hook" to capture the interest of readers.
