November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

9 Lessons I Have Learned After Two Years of Blogging

9 Lessons I Have Learned After Two Years of Blogging | Small Business Blogging | Scoop.it

Blog post at Productive Superdad : On the 31st of December, 2010, I published my first post on this blog. Ever since then I have been blogging on a frequent basis...

3. Get a coach from the get-go

This is one of the things I wish I had done when I started blogging: Hired a coach.

Although I hired some temporary help when launching my blog in 2011 (and to which I was happy with), I still wanted something more.

In January 2012 this changed, as I started  working with Danny Iny and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Coaching has made a huge difference in my productivity as I’m able to focus on things that are truly important.

It’s also a great way to test new ideas: I might have a crazy plan in my head which I pitch to Danny. If he thinks the idea is not so great, I put that on hold or get it off of my list completely. This is a huge time saver and I can keep on track without any extra distractions.

Although coaching is expensive, it’s also a much faster way to get to your destination. Besides, you can rarely get to your goal by buying a $19 e-book.

Here's the comment I left:

Hi Timo!
What an incredible job you have done with your blogs in the past two years! You are so right about the hard work that goes into the art of blogging and it’s really a smart idea to get help right up front. Working with Danny is a plus and having a system in place is also key.

I don’t know what I would do with out wonderful guest contributors like yourself that keep a constant stream of value-added blog posts flowing on my blog.

Thanks for all you do and best wishes for another “productive” year in 2013!

10 B2B Blogging Ideas For When You Need a Boost

10 B2B Blogging Ideas For When You Need a Boost | Small Business Blogging | Scoop.it

Come on, be honest. You can agree that the following scenario happens to all of us at one time or another – or probably more than one time – as bloggers. Your brain and the keyboard just can’t seem to connect. Deadline or not, you are incapable of making it happen the way you want. The harder you try, the more frustrated you become. Then, you just give up for a while and move over to look at all the pretty pictures on Pinterest. Oh, wait – that’s what happens to me! B2B blogging admittedly comes with its own unique challenges. Let’s face it, the solutions and offerings are just not very “sexy” in the B2B world. That doesn’t mean B2B blogging isn’t necessary – it’s quite the opposite actually. B2B content is increasingly being considered as a useful way to drive traffic to company websites. Among the challenges found in B2B blogging is coming up with fresh ideas and subsequent content that will make your company’s messages appealing and engaging to your audience.


So, what is a B2B blogger in a bind to do? This is a list I have put together with 10 B2B blogging ideas. My list is by no means inclusive or in any sort of order of importance. I’ve decided to put it together because sometimes we could all use a boost.
