    How often should you post articles to your business blog?

    The short answer: More is better.

    HubSpot's recently released  2010 State of Inbound Marketing Report , based on a survey of 231 marketers, shows that companies that blog multiple times a day more consistently acquire customers from blogging.

    The survey also shows that the rate of customer acquisition declines steadily with the rate of blog posting. 100% of respondents who blog multiple times a day have generated a customer from their blog compared to 90% of respondents who blog daily and 69% of respondents who blog two or three times a week.

    Of course, these results don't mean you need to blog multiple times a day to see an impact from your blog. Blogging once or twice a week is certainly better than nothing -- and it's how most companies start. 

    Other key findings of the 2010 State of Inbound Marketing report:

    • Inbound marketing-dominated organizations average a 60% lower cost-per-lead than outbound-dominated organizations.
    • Over 40% of customers using Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and company blogs have generated a customer from that channel.
