How Often Should You Blog for business? The Truth From an Expert
If you’re about to start a blog for business leads, sales and traffic then one of the first questions that might come up is how often should I lock into my schedule to create and publish a new blog post.
My answer is not the typical one you might find in other articles on this topic and that’s because most of them are reliant on consistency, however, a blog is evergreen content.
That means that inconsistency is okay, but let me explain further.
How often should you blog for business?
Here’s the truth that might shock you
You do not have to publish a new blog post every week.
You WILL indeed have to create content, but not every week.
Not even every 2 weeks.
You don't need a ruthless schedule when it comes to your blog.
👏 You could create 20 blog posts over 6 months and then have a break for a few months, and then keep going.
That’s because your blog post is relevant all year round and your results don't rely on your consistency.
When you’re just starting out though, you do want to try and be consistent so you can get a good amount of content out there.
For example, I created 16 new blog posts for this website and published them over 3 weeks.
Well, im going to start repurposing podcast episodes to this blog but I’ll probably have a wee break until we can gather a consistent system in place as we have a new team member and I’ll be delegating that task to her.

If you want to blog for business then putting a lot of content is going to be needed so you can have a content stack leading to your lead magnets, offers and other marketing channels.
Every blog post you create is more eyeballs so keep creating content BUT you do not have to put pressure on yourself to create one every week.
Create a schedule (if you wish) that is in line with what you want to do and what’s possible time-wise.
Then create a system and workflow so that you can create more valuable content and drive more leads and sales into your business.
How many blog posts do you need to start a blog for business?
