2.A day in the life blog
What does a day in the studios/factories or office look like for you? Give your customers an inclusive insight on the daily tasks you partake in to ensure they get the best products. This builds on that trustworthy relationship between the customer and business. This relationship is crucial to gaining new and returning customers.
3.Appeal to your customer persona
Blog posts don’t have to be exclusively about your products. Share insight on other things your audience would be interested in. This can organically lead a web bread crumb trail to your products.

Discuss the steps you’re taking to reduce your carbon footprint. This could be:
- shipping materials or processes
- how you recycle materials or excess waste

- how you source ingredients/materials
This again is crucial to building trust.
5.Product of the week blog
Pick a product a month to talk about. This is a great way to draw attention to products that may not sell as well and will also provide consistent content for a long time. Use this content to highlight USPS, interesting ingredients and how the product is made. You can also use this as a method of gaining feedback on specific products.
Newsletters are great to keep returning and potential customers informed on whats going on in your business. This could be whats going on with yourself, if your business is small.

Gift guides are great free marketing tools and can provide endless content for social media sites. Use calendars to put together a list of which holidays your company would benefit from. Don’t forget the holidays celebrated in the countries your business ships to.

Holidays make up great content for blogs, and there is a dedicated day to almost everything, so it’s simple to find something related to your products. Bring in personal elements too, let your customers know how your family spend holidays.
