Hello, everyone. I hope you’re doing very well today.
Okay. Let’s listen to today’s business scene.

I enjoyed reading your blogs. I was pretty impressed by your writing style too. So, what do you think the most important factor is when writing a blog?

A blog is a strong marketing tool. So, it’s important to advertise products or services in an attractive way.

That’s true. But if it sounds too positive, readers suspect there may be a catch somewhere.

To suspect is to doubt, usually in the sense that someone is not being completely honest.
For example, the reviews didn’t sound real and I suspect that they were just written for promotional purposes.

I think it’s also important to touch on consumers’ concerns.

Hmm. Both of you make good points. It’s a balance, isn’t it?
