Kick-Butt Author and Publishing Tips and Ahas

Kick butt sheep test 2


 Three quick tips to enhance your blog clout and you that popped from the recent jammed paced webinar that Joel Friedlander, Joan Stewart, Amy Collins, Kelly Johnson and Judith Briles did.

1. Don’t make your blog’s “About” page about you. It’s about what you are bringing to the reader. “You” are the carrier … take care of that in your signature at the end of each blog.

2. Include a “call to action” with every blog post. Why not … get the reader to react, to do something.

3. Give something away. Generosity is fulfilling and creates a bond with the recipient.

    “Don’t make your blog’s “About” page about you” – that is really important, I actually plan to write an article about how to write a great “about me” page (spoiler alert, it’s not about you! )

    Turn everything into a benefit for the reader:

    If you are write about you or your company, don’t say “company history, founded in 1994”, just say I/We have over 20 years of experience and 20 years of happy customers in xyz field. You can rest assure we know what we are doing…
