What are the pros and cons, when it comes to blogging from any good platform vs a personal website?
Is having a personal website a real benefit or is writing good, useful content, regardless of the platform, what's most important for gaining increased exposure as a business person?
Platform vs. personal website is rather meaningless, as you can easily redirect a domain name you registered to load your "platform" blog instead of "personal website". Indeed, blog can be considered as a simplified "content management system" for a website, completely with multiple editors, media and other linking, search engine (Google custom search), tags, static pages, and so on.
The trick basically is get your name out there and establish yourself as an expert in the subject area, and that means interact with the industry in forums, Facebook groups. Linkedin groups, and so on and so forth, as well as blog about happenings and personal observations.
Blogging from a good platform is the best option SEO-wise. Search engines visit blogging platforms daily and you can tap into this. If, however, your account is free the platform will display alot of ads making your page seem unprofessional.
If you have a paid account on the other hand you can have all the advantages with none of the disadvantages.
Besides using a good blogging platform is less expensive than owning your own site.
