Why Small Busineesses Need faster Blogging Platforms

Traditional blogging is slow. You write in apps like Obsidian or Notion, then copy and paste your content from Notion to platforms like Ghost. But, the format often breaks, so you check and fix it. If you update, you do it twice. This doubles your blogging time!

We started BlogPro to fix this.

How BlogPro makes blogging dead simple

1. Effortless Setup: Almost Zero Configuration

Starting a blog using BlogPro takes just three steps.

  1. Create a DB on Notion
  1. Log into BlogPro
  1. Connect your Notion DB

Boom. The platform takes care of the rest, converting your page into a fully functional blog in seconds. This simplicity lets even those who are not tech savvy become bloggers, making it a perfect fit for non technical-founders.

2. Easy to use Notion Editor

Notion editing experience is 100x times better than Wordpress, it has better collaboration, more features, Notion AI. And the gap between them is only going to get wider.

3. Speed: Lightning Fast Blogging Experience

Remember the extra work you had to do with traditional blogging platforms? Not with BlogPro. Once you connect your Notion to BlogPro, we automatically sync your Notion posts to BlogPro. You don’t need to do anything extra. It’s all automated.

4. Built-in SEO features

BlogPro generates dynamic sitemaps for your blog, ensuring that search engines can easily crawl and index all your pages. These sitemaps are automatically updated whenever you publish new content or make changes to existing posts, keeping search engines informed about the structure and content of your blog. This helps improve your blog's visibility and search engine rankings.

And 99% of It Is Free!

Why so affordable? We're a startup too and know how expensive blogging can get. We once used a platform that cost us $99/month just for subdirectory hosting. It was breaking our bank!

So we came up with a more reasonable pricing. Subdirectory hosting on Ghost costs you $100/mo. On BlogPro? It’s provided for free. Custom domains? Free. Text search? Also free!

What's not free? Want extra SEO analytics? That's extra, but only because it costs us to provide. Everything else, like custom domains and hosting, is on us because they don't cost us much.

Use Cases: Using Notion with Blogpro

BlogPro is most useful if you operate most of your business using Notion. That means you can launch your website using Notion, blog with Notion, manage projects with Notion and etcs.
