However, creating compelling blog posts and articles three to four times a week can be challenging. The following four steps can help.

1. Target the right audience by building buyer personas

HubSpot offers resources on how to develop buyer personas. Depending on the company and its products, it may have a single buyer persona or as many as 10. Speak to your sales force, use customer records, and survey your customer base to get the data you need to get started.
