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.

Marilyn Armstrong's curator insight, February 8, 2013 7:59 PM

If you value your work and treasure your freedom, you should take a look. This isn't something that's happening far away. It will ultimately affect all of us and end the free internet as we know it. This is not some sinister cabal. It's good old corporate greed. There's a huge amount of money to be made from mining the internet; we are in the way. The only thing we have going for us is our numbers. If we hang together and we can make enough noise to at least get a hearing. Otherwise, we'll disappear without a trace and we'll be remembing this as "the good old days," when cyber space was free.

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!
