15 Blogs To Follow If You Want To Kick Ass Online — socialmouths

15 Blogs To Follow If You Want To Kick Ass Online — socialmouths | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it
Being successful online requires that you beat a pretty long learning curve and while I try to contribute with my 2 cents, there are amazing bloggers out there that you should be reading on a regular basis.

These people put their amazing talent and knowledge into blog content and deliver it to their online communities week after week.

I have to advise you that if you see that I’m not going with the obvious is for 2 reasons, one because I like helping you discover stuff that you might have missed (there is just too much content out there…) and two, not that I don’t occasionally read the usual suspects, but this is the stuff I visit frequently. Also let me say that this is not a ranking so don’t pay attention to the order.

58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love

58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it

I selected this post by copyblogger because this is one of those pieces you can read once but it really comes to life when you're writing that article, blog post, curating someone elses piece. There are so many valuable insights and suggestions, it's definitely worth reading and keeping for those days when you need creative inspiration.

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

*GREAT CURATORS Understand your readers. Know their fears, dreams, and desires. How can you engage with someone you don’t understand?

 

**Don’t write for a large audience. Choose one person, picture him, and write to him as if he’s a friend.

 

**Use a conversational tone of voice. Nobody wants to chat with a company.

 

**Be engaging. Using the word you is the most powerful way to be more engaging.

 

Be remarkable. So much content is out there, how can you stand out?

 

**GREAT Creation or Curation comes from CONTEXT Disclose your point of view, tell your personal story, and develop your own voice.

 

**If your readers feel they know you, they will connect with you.

 

**Use familiar language. Check Twitter, Facebook or Google’s Keyword Tool – and find the wording your readers use.
