8 LinkedIn Tips and Basics that All Users should Practice

8 LinkedIn Tips and Basics that All Users should Practice | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
We all know about LinkedIn, but the business networking site still tends to fly under the radar more often than not. These LinkedIn tips and basics will ignite your profile and experience.
Sharla Shults's insight:

It's a good practice to include relative keywords in your profile. Think of words that would be more niche and less traveled than "business", "social media", or "technology". Those mainstream keywords aren't worth it as you'll have to sacrifice your profile.

New Smashwords Research Helps Authors and Publishers Sell More Ebooks

New Smashwords Research Helps Authors and Publishers Sell More Ebooks | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Don't let data-driven decision-making cause you to make stupid decisions.

 

Last year at the 2012 RT Booklovers in Chicago, I released a first-of-its-kind study that analyzed sales data for self-published ebooks. Our goal was to identify potential factors that could help authors sell more ebooks.

Two weeks ago at the 2013 RT Booklovers convention in Kansas City, I shared new, updated data in a session titled, Money, Money, Money -- Facts & Figures for Financial Payoff.

Some of the results were surprising, some were silly, and some I expect will help authors and publishers make their ebooks more appealing to consumers

I haven't ventured into Smashwords but from the sound of thie article, I may be missing out!

Between Business and Family: Living Your Priorities

Between Business and Family: Living Your Priorities | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
It’s possible to have both, but somewhere between business and family the priorities aren’t connecting.
Sharla Shults's insight:

Get rid of the vague sense of guilt by telling yourself the truth about your calendar. Decide what is really important to you, then actually do it. It’s so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it before. When your calendar and your priorities are a good match, you’re on your way to that life you dream of.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Most interesting infographic! Color plays an important role in our daily lives. I found this intriguing because of the companies depicting their dominant color in advertising. Red is one of my favorite colors but I hate McDonald's and Toyota would not be my car of choice. Blue is my fondest color but I hate Pepsi! Of course, as for McDonald's and Pepsi, it is all about taste, not color at all.

 

I found it also interesting that most of the social media sites have logos predominantly blue, i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Skype, vimeo, flickr.
