The Website vs. The Blog An Ongoing Debate...
I don't want you to think that a blog is a bad thing. It's not.
Blogs are actually very important as part of a reputable linking system for your traditional website.
So, why would I start a website (especially with SiteBuildIt!) rather than a blog?
Here are my top 3 reaons:
1) All Your Information Remains Current
How many times have you read the first one or two posts on a blog and then forgotten about it?
Many blogs are only as good as their last 2 or 3 posts.
With a well-organized website that is found easily through organic searches, all of your information is readily available and easily accessible for your readers.
2) Better Site Organization
Having a dedicated Tier system helps to create "mini-sites" within your site.
Your keyword phrasing within each of these tiers plays a major role in determing your sites overall traffic.
You usually spend more time on the sites that are easy to navigate, right?
3) I Enjoy My Free Time
Effective blogging basically necessitates that you'll have to write every single day.
Otherwise, your readers may quickly forget about you.
With my current sites, I tend to write a lot (It's the basis for the C*T*P*M site success process), yet I'm still able to take a 2-week vacation whenever I want to.
Most of the time, I enjoy increased website traffic during my vacations without having to do any extra work. That's a bonus!
