If you’re like me and writing up to eight posts per week while juggling multiple businesses, it can be seriously draining.

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources | Design, social media and web resources | Scoop.it

While other parts of business and marketing are becoming increasingly automated, content creation is still a very manual job.


That being said, there are plenty of tools out there to make creating content much easier.


Below, you'll find a list of 36 fantastic tools and resources to help you research, write, edit, and design content more easily.


(You'll notice there are a lot of design tools in here -- that's because visual content is often the part of the content creation process where people get the most nervous and frustrated. So don't worry, we've got a ton in there for you.)...

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write | Design, social media and web resources | Scoop.it

It’s helpful to be honest about why you’re reaching out (for example, you’re going through a job search or moving to a new city). It can combat nerves and help the process feel more genuine. In other words, it instantly solves two core issues many people stress about when told to network.

 

That said, as with anything else, you know there’s a difference between being straightforward and being overly blunt. For example, you know to write, "I was thinking of approaching the project from a different angle" over "I hate all of your ideas."

 

Aspiring to find this balance, many people begin networking emails with "Remember me?" or even, "You probably don’t remember me..." After all, why not begin with an honest admission so the other person knows you aren’t being fake? Well, unfortunately, this approach often backfires. While you’re coming from a sincere place, it’s pretty audacious to ask for something from someone whom you’re blatantly admitting you barely know.

I think this title should be about reaching out to contacts.

As the article implies networking can be scary, and might scare away readers but a good article overall.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 5, 2016 9:43 PM
It certainly helps to be upfront, honest and straightforward in writing Networking Emails. We have come a long way from times when it was perhaps expected that letters should run into pages, filled with flowery expression and long sentences. I found the examples in the article really helpful, and am sharing the same for others to read!

Every site starts off small. When I started out, I was terrified no one was ever going to visit my site. I resisted SEO because I thought it wouldn’t help. How wrong I was!


Today, SEO plays an important role in my marketing, and it’s one of the first things I suggest to people.


If you have a tiny website that no one visits, spend some time doing some SEO. You might be surprised at the result.
