Blogging – Using the process writing approach

Blogging – Using the process writing approach

Process writing helps you to present a logically flowing piece of writing. Whether you are blogging to generate an income or for pleasure, there are some principles by which you should be guided and they take many forms. Some persons do not really understand the intricacies involved in writing such as research, presentation and so on but process writing is the aspect I wish to discuss as I believe it to be a very important part of the whole content writing experience.

Now, if you have read many blogs you would have noticed that sometimes there were many mistakes made. These are not necessarily deliberate but perhaps the piece of writing was not re-read before publishing to the world. It is important that if you are going to put your name to a piece of writing that proper due care be taken to ensure that at the very least, the grammar and punctuation are correct. Non-native English Language speakers are not excluded. This process of ensuring that some basic things are done before the work is published is called the Process writing. We will discuss some basic approaches. So let’s go.

Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content

Finally a go-to guide to creating and publishing the kind of content that will make your business thrive.

Everybody Writes is a go-to guide to attracting and retaining customers through stellar online communication, because in our content-driven world, every one of us is, in fact, a writer.

If you have a web site, you are a publisher. If you are on social media, you are in marketing. And that means that we are all relying on our words to carry our marketing messages. We are all writers.

Yeah, but who cares about writing anymore? In a time-challenged world dominated by short and snappy, by click-bait headlines and Twitter streams and Instagram feeds and gifs and video and Snapchat and YOLO and LOL and #tbt. . . does the idea of focusing on writing seem pedantic and ordinary?

Actually, writing matters more now, not less. Our online words are our currency; they tell our customers who we are.

Our writing can make us look smart or it can make us look stupid. It can make us seem fun, or warm, or competent, or trustworthy. But it can also make us seem humdrum or discombobulated or flat-out boring.

That means you’ve got to choose words well, and write with economy and the style and honest empathy for your customers. And it means you put a new value on an often-overlooked skill in content marketing: How to write, and how to tell a true story really, really well. That’s true whether you’re writing a listicle or the words on a Slideshare deck or the words you’re reading right here, right now…

And so being able to communicate well in writing isn’t just nice; it’s necessity. And it’s also the oft-overlooked cornerstone of nearly all our content marketing.

In Everybody Writes, top marketing veteran Ann Handley gives expert guidance and insight into the process and strategy of content creation, production and publishing, with actionable how-to advice designed to get results.

These lessons and rules apply across all of your online assets — like web pages, home page, landing pages, blogs, email, marketing offers, and on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media. Ann deconstructs the strategy and delivers a practical approach to create ridiculously compelling and competent content. It’s designed to be the go-to guide for anyone creating or publishing any kind of online content — whether you’re a big brand or you’re small and solo.

Sections include:

  • How to write better. (Or, for “adult-onset writers”: How to hate writing less.)
  • Easy grammar and usage rules tailored for business in a fun, memorable way. (Enough to keep you looking sharp, but not too much to overwhelm you.)
  • Giving your audience the gift of your true story, told well. Empathy and humanity and inspiration are key here, so the book covers that, too.
  • Best practices for creating credible, trustworthy content steeped in some time-honored rules of solid journalism. Because publishing content and talking directly to your customers is, at its heart, a privilege.
  • “Things Marketers Write”: The fundamentals of 17 specific kinds of content that marketers are often tasked with crafting.
  • Content Tools: The sharpest tools you need to get the job done.

Traditional marketing techniques are no longer enough. Everybody Writes is a field guide for the smartest businesses who know that great content is the key to thriving in this digital world.

Many persons go online searching for business opportunities every day. This is so because jobs are hard to come by occasioned by economic uncertainties in many economies across the world.

Networkingsuperstars – 7 Day Challenge – My Review

Networkingsuperstars – 7 Day Challenge is a site created by Gavin Mountford, a successful online entrepreneur who has been operating online for the past 11 years in various spheres of endeavour.

Viral Marketing Campaigns

Following on from the last post on viral marketing, listed below are 4 ideas for simple viral marketing campaigns.

Viral Marketing Campaigns 1 -Master Resell Rights

What is the big deal about master resell rights? Simply put, you are able to create an E-product and the owner of the product has the rights to resell it for any price that they want. The resellers will be doing promotions for you and spread your name all around the Internet. But not only that, they will not be able to do alterations to your book in any form; they will just sell it in its current form.
Here are two ways by which you can create a huge viral marketing campaign out of MRR products:

Write your own ( hire a ghostwriter/outsource) E-product and give MRR rights rp_52c4c3c7b1612.png

Find someone else’s MRR product with re-branding rights and place your own affiliate links there.

Later on, place those E-products on well-known membership sites.

Viral Marketing Campaigns 2 -Private Label Viral Marketing

Everyone knows that PLR is one of the best rights anyone can have for an E-book. This is so because it allows you to do almost anything you want with it. However, even PLR has certain restrictions such as non-transferable rights or bonding rights. This is just like some resell rights. But one of the advantages of no restriction private label rights is the fact that you can sell the private label rights of the book, in this way you let the book go viral almost instantly. Certain PLR resellers even include a sales letter for the resellers to easily edit the contents of the sales letter. Continue reading

Why Viral Marketing?

Here are a few reasons why viral marketing is very important

Leverage On Other People’s List
Internet marketing gurus always talk about building your mailing list. Mailing lists are important because it is true that the money is in the list. Most of the times, some internet marketers will ask other marketers to promote their products, do an ad swap or help them to build their own lists in general. But what if, instead of relying on your own list, you can leverage on other people’s list?

You see, in Internet marketing, there is always someone who has a bigger list size than you have. These people will always want to sell products. If you can create products (such as master resell rights or no restriction private label rights products) and give them the rights to sell your products with your ads in it, you will be getting constant advertising for free and people are doing it willingly for you.
