Neil Patel’s Guide to Writing Popular Blog Posts

Neil Patel’s Guide to Writing Popular Blog Posts | Better patient outcomes through technology | Scoop.it

Do you wish you knew the secret to writing popular blog posts? You know, the posts that get over 200 comments, 20 backlinks, and hundreds of shares on social networking sites?

 

Over the past five years I’ve started two blogs. The first one became a Technorati top 100 site, and now I’m working on Quick Sprout.

Fortunately I’ve learned a few lessons about writing popular posts while running these two blogs, and now I want to share those lessons with you.

The Risks of Over-Gamification in Social Media Marketing | Social Media Today

The Risks of Over-Gamification in Social Media Marketing | Social Media Today | Better patient outcomes through technology | Scoop.it
There is always a very clear need for us to understand the context within which the game occurs and what it’s trying to teach us and the risk is that when this is mishandled (or not communicated sufficiently clearly) what is intended to be a great way to learn something fast is lost and we end up focusing on the game itself. In the real world this means that a training session is wasted as the values learnt in the game are not translated to actions outside it. On the web it becomes even more meaningless as websites, for instance, show their PageRank value like it should mean something. And, very recently, job candidates proudly displayed their Klout score on resumes meant to impress potential employers.

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships

4 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Relationships | Better patient outcomes through technology | Scoop.it

One main facet of social media is its emphasis on creating and maintaining relationships.

 

All the content you create, all the following you build, each of these is designed to create and foster more intimate relationships with people, in some cases, people you might not have met any other way.

 

What’s interesting is social media is changing the foundation of the ways we relate. This article will examine how social media is changing our interpersonal psychology and what you can do about it.

 

Why Should You Care?

This has important implications for business because business, after all, is comprised of interpersonal relationships.

Marketers, Facebook Is Not About You | Social Media Today

Marketers, Facebook Is Not About You | Social Media Today | Better patient outcomes through technology | Scoop.it
Facebook’s f8 event last week will have lasting ramifications for the network’s 800 million users. It will also have implications for brands, but the biggest takeaway should that if you’re a marketer, Facebook was never about you, it’s not about you, and it will never be about you. I’m sorry to the handful of laptops and iPhones that were just hurled across the room, but the truth hurts.
