Business owners, you ought to be blogging. If you are not, you should start. Blogging is a way to update your customers about changes in your business and engage with your customers on developments in your industry. But here's the thing, don't be boring. If you bore your readers once, you have lost them.

Learning how to write well and deliver interesting content is challenging, but the payoff is cold, hard cash.

Check out the infographic (below) for more information about how to keep your content captivating and delicious.
