The content beast is a hungry animal, and business owners trying to keep up with feeding this beast, often struggle to maintain the pace.


The chief culprit behind this struggle, is the old writers block, something that is easily overcome with a little knowledge and expert guidance.


This excellent article, provides four tips for overcoming the common obstacles to producing engaging and informative content for your customers or clients, and it also includes 10 tips to help create content that doesn't come across as poorly disguised sales pitches.

From the  article: A recent study by BusinessBolts.com found that 74 percent of small businesses plan on increasing the amount of content they produce this year.

 

Yet coming up with engaging and informative content for clients and customers is not always easy. Whether you are looking to develop articles for your newsletter or posts for your blog — or even just thinking of things to share on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest — coming up with good ideas can be challenging. And inevitably, the harder you try to think of great content, the harder it gets. Proverbial writer’s block sets in. And stays. Awhile.

Teach Yourself Anything: 3 Ways To Create Your Own Learning Playlists

Teach Yourself Anything: 3 Ways To Create Your Own Learning Playlists | Content curation | Scoop.it

The Internet is a fire hose. Whether it’s a casual browse or a conscious one, getting “drenched” is almost given. Fortunately, the same fire hose of information can quench your thirst for learning a new skill. Learning playlists are nothing but an organized way to collect the right resources in the form of articles, videos, links, images etc. in a semblance of order. Think of it as tying together all the information you find into a thread that helps you grasp it from the beginning to the end.

 

Learning playlists are just as useful for flipped teaching as they are for learning anything on your own. From learning a new language to coding software programs; from comics to drums, nothing can stop the enthusiastic learner. All that’s needed is to find the best content, and then make sense of it. This is where a learning playlist helps you handpick the best knowledge from the Web. Here are three free tools to create your own learning playlists and share it with others as well....

The 30-Second Rule: How to Create Unforgettable Presentations

The 30-Second Rule:  How to Create Unforgettable Presentations | Content curation | Scoop.it

Whether your audience is your boss, your banker, a small team of direct reports, a ballroom full of conference attendees, or thousands of people worldwide connected via teleconference, your success depends on being able to make a great presentation.

 

Great presentations are well-organized, flow logically from one idea to another, and ultimately leave the audience leave feeling rewarded and enlightened. All well and good, but if you don’t hook your audience in the first 30 seconds, all your careful preparation may be for naught. Therefore you have to begin with a bang! A television commercial has only 30 seconds to grab your attention; the same is true for you and your presentation.
