My eBook has received anothe great review! Excited to share with all of you!
I read an article titled "Stop Saying What You're Not Going To Do" a while back and it really struck a chord with me.
A few days ago, someone asked me how often I left comments on other people's blogs. My answer was simple: "When I feel that I could add something of value to the conversation."
Apparently, I am not the only one to think that way:
"We aren’t experts on everything. Even within the social business sphere we each have specialties, niche concentrations and platform-specific knowledge. We can’t keep up with every change that is reported in social business news. Sometimes this causes some social solutions providers to take on the persona of Jack of all trades, master of none. Giving us the idea that we should act or comment at will. This is something we should fight against." - Mallie Hart
What makes a social business different. Could empathy be the key? And how do you get hard-charging corporate execs to put customers and employees first?
The days of overt and strong self-promotion are definitely over. If you want to succeed in social media, you have to be “social”.
Being a “social business” is something that requires much more than simple conversations with your audience. It’s about understanding what makes a customer tick, what triggers their desire to support you.
To Michael Brenner, the answer lies in empathy.
“Search for branded websites that you love and you will find that nearly all of them speak to you (the visitor) and the value you will receive as opposed to being about themselves (what they sell). Look at brands that connect with you and you will realize that they make you feel like they sincerely care about you.”

Blogging can be its own reward. It helps the blogger understand his subject—be it himself, his business, his hobby, or something else entirely—better than he did before. It improves the blogger’s writing ability. It encourages discipline, hard work, and consistency. And it’s fun.
But for most bloggers, that’s not all the rewards they have in mind. Most bloggers would like another thing, as well: A big, devoted following of readers. Having people read the content on your blog makes all the effort needed to create your content seem worthwhile. It provides a validation, gives your content a wider audience, and (if your blog is tied to a business) can make a serious difference in your bottom line.
So if you want more followers for your blog, here are several ways you can tweak your blogging habits or your WordPress themes to get a bigger audience for your blog.
