Great writing! I can’t agree more with the buying part. What makes people buy from you compared to thousands of blogs out there?

For me, Providing value is important. If people is doing A, provide more than just ‘A’ and you are going to gain trust from there!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your comment, Reginald! You’re right – talking about what makes you different is certainly something that should be woven through everything you do, including your blog. You don’t want to make your blog one massive sales pitch, but comparing your company to your competitors can help potential buyers see why they should choose YOU!

Thanks again for stopping by!
