A blog is one of the best ways to drive traffic to your website, but if it’s not done right, it can actually do more harm than good, leading people away from your site.

This is the best way to publish your first blog post in just 10 minutes - and the best part is, you can do this for free in Framer, and you don’t need any experience!

Let’s go.

What to Blog

If you’re a business looking to drive traffic to your website, then answering common client questions in a blog post is key. Every time someone Googles that question, there’s a chance they’ll land on your blog post - now they’re on your website (traffic). If you’re a casual blogger not trying to sell anything, you can try brainstorming some blog ideas by mind-mapping a topic and then asking yourself a bunch of questions about that topic to help you come up with blog ideas.

Choose a Platform (we have a recommendation...)

Choosing a blogging platform can be a big topic. We recommend Framer. It’s great for blogging because it’s so user-friendly and can be really easy on the budget. Also, if designing isn't for you, just choose a template.

CMS Overview

You can start writing straight away by adding a new item into your Framer CMS. Think of the CMS sort of like writing an email or using Word. The CMS is where you will input your blog content and add headings, images, and so on.

CMS Customization

Once you get the hang of Framer, the customizations are endless. For example, setting up a Featured Section or even adding a filter to just show featured articles at the top of the home page.

Keep Going! Be Consistent

Companies that blog twice a week get almost 3.5 times more traffic than those that publish four or fewer times a month. So keep at it!
