One of the questions I get asked a lot is this: “How do I start my blog for free, Mike?” And I completely understand why. You’re new to blogging, and you’re not sure if it’s going to work. Rather than shell out thousands of dollars for nothing, why not find a free or inexpensive approach that lets you test the waters? The good news for you is that I’ve tried them all, and with my help and guidance, you’ll be able to sort out what your options are and how to proceed!

For the best results on Pinterest, you need a blog. That doesn’t mean you need to spend thousands (or even hundreds) to set it up or spend hours and hours a week writing. But you do have to write.

Creating Breakthrough Content Marketing: There Ain't No Magic Feather

Creating Breakthrough Content Marketing: There Ain't No Magic Feather | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

Too many would-be content creators are searching for their magic feather–the book, online course, or perfect antique typewriter that will make them a writer. And while they search, they can’t or won’t write.


So Ann began her session at Social Media Marketing World by asking us all to recite a pledge out loud: “I don’t believe in unicorns, fairies, or Santa. There is no magic feather.”


Despite the slander against Mr. Claus (who I have on good authority is very real), it’s a crucial first step. You have to know that good writing is a learned skill, not something magically bestowed on those with the right talisman.


You can do it. You can get better at it. Here are Ann Handley’s five tips for writing “ludicrously spectacular” content....

Use Design to Elevate Your Content Marketing

Use Design to Elevate Your Content Marketing | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

We are a visual culture. People respond better to visual content and even process information more efficiently when presented in a visual way. With so many performance advantages, it’s clear how design can elevate written content.

 

With the convincing out of the way, let’s talk about specific ways to introduce design and visual storytelling into your content marketing strategy.

 

We all know that blog posts need images but are you using enough?

 

One of the best ways to increase the reach of your content is with the right amount of images. BuzzSumo did the math for us, and found that the right amount of images is one every 75-100 words:

 

“In a study of over one million articles, BuzzSumo looked at how many blog posts with images were shared. Then they looked at how many images, per how many words, got the best results. What they found was articles with an image once every 75-100 words got double the amount of shares of articles with fewer images.”...

18 Tips For Writing Engaging Headlines and 27 Makeovers That Saved Stories From Extinction - MediaShift

18 Tips For Writing Engaging Headlines and 27 Makeovers That Saved Stories From Extinction - MediaShift | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it
Online, your product is unbundled. You get 10 words. Or 8. Or maybe 13, like I used above, to market your work. Digital success is like selling a newspaper story by story rather than day by day or week by week. And in selling that day’s paper, by subscription or newsstand, there’s just less urgency to make the headline awesome on that 150-word story buried at the bottom of page 11. Sections and geographic centers all are comfortable assumptions you can’t make in digital headlines. You must have a certain sense of desperation in writing web headlines, like those eight words are the difference between that column’s or blog’s life or death. Mostly, because it is. You aren’t owed readership. Your headline helps earn it — along with a handful of other factors like author and brand.


So any strategy involving growing and sustaining digital audience must incorporate excellence in headline writing. Must.
A few points to clarify here as we begin. I’ll be discussing writing for readers here, not for search engine optimization. That will be a consideration at times, but mostly we’re talking about people creating headlines for people....
