What Brands Should Be Thinking About
Pay attention to questions that are frequently asked about, be it from customer feedback to trending questions on the web: Turn these questions into answers in a blog and make sure blog titles clearly capture the key message of the post. Make sure to include a plug for your products within these blogs to maximize the chances of conversion. For example, if customers are extra interested in the benefits of CBD for sleep purposes, write a blog about how your products are able to provide that benefit for the customer and insert pictures and links to your product line.
