Why Every Health and Wellness Brand Needs a Blog

Budding plants

A blog allows health and wellness brands to share expertise, build trust, improve SEO, drive traffic, and foster relationships. Use your blog to attract more clients and establish yourself as an authority.

In this article:


If you’re a health and wellness brand (or any business, for that matter), you need a blog!

A blog helps your business in powerful ways. Through your blog you can:

  • Attract new clients

  • Share your expertise

  • Drive traffic to your website

  • Build relationships with customers

  • Establish yourself as a trusted source

  • Capitalize on SEO (search engine optimization)

  • Improve your SERP (search engine results page) ranking

So, why wouldn’t you leverage blog posts and articles for growth and success?

What's a blog anyway?

Get a little closer! What you’re reading now is a blog post on my blog!

It’s basically an informational site that publishes new content regularly on topics related to your industry.

For example, a health blog could feature posts on nutrition, fitness, mental health, and more. You would highlight posts about ways to save money on healthcare expenses and how to negotiate medical bills on your medical personal finance blog.

Unlike traditional websites, blogs are updated frequently with new, original content. This content helps drive website traffic and conversions. All that activity bumps up your search ranking since the search engines love to see sites that are actively updated.

Key benefits of a health and wellness blog

Let’s break down the main reasons why you should be blogging:

Attract new clients

A blog allows you to create content tailored to your ideal customer avatar.

You get to provide value through topics that resonate with their needs and interests, and you organically attract qualified prospects already inclined to do business with you.

These inbound leads are more likely to convert to paying clients.

Share your expertise

Consistent, high-quality blogging demonstrates your knowledge and establishes you as an authority in your field.

As you consistently share valuable insights and thoughtful perspectives with your readers over time, you naturally establish yourself as a trusted expert.

Drive traffic to your website

Quality blog content will attract new visitors through search engines and shares on social media.

Calls-to-action within each post then allow you to convert those visitors into leads by encouraging them to download an e-book, request a demo, sign up for a webinar, etc.

More traffic and leads mean more potential customers.

Build relationships with customers

Blogs allow you to have genuine conversations with your audience through comments and social sharing.

When you engage your readers this way, you get to foster genuine relationships and community. This helps you better understand your customers to serve them. It’s a win-win!

Establish yourself as a trusted source

Position yourself as an influencer by sharing unique perspectives.

As readers come to rely on your insights, you become an influencer they look to for guidance and education.

This thought leadership boosts credibility.

Capitalize on SEO

Search engines absolutely love regularly updated, high-quality content.

The more substantive blogs you publish, the more opportunities you have to rank for relevant keywords.

This improves inbound traffic and lets your clients come to you!

Improve your SERP ranking

This is the beauty of blog posts! They continue driving traffic long after you hit publish. This happens through search and share.

All the evergreen content you post over time keeps attracting new eyeballs. And the benefits just keep compounding as each piece continues driving new traffic and conversions.

More content equals higher SERP rankings and referral traffic as you build an audience.

How to create blogs that get results

The key is to share valuable information with your readers regularly. That's how you empower your audience and keep them coming back.

Focus on:

  • Current insights and trends in your field

  • Inspiring stories and examples from clients

  • Responding to feedback and building relationships

  • Ways to overcome common problems and challenges

  • Practical, actionable advice based on real-world experience

How to get started with a health blog

  • Implement calls-to-action that convert

It’s a wrap!

A blog allows you to establish expertise, attract clients, improve SEO, and build meaningful relationships – all through valuable content.
