Irresistible Blog Content – 5 Ways to Produce Content That People Will Share

There are thousands of articles and blogs posted across social media on a daily basis which makes getting your blog entry noticed a pretty difficult task! Keep reading to find out how you can write blog content that readers will not be able to resist sharing.

1. Write about something you are passionate for. If you are writing about a topic that you are not interested in people will be able to tell straight away and at that point they will probably lose interest in your blog. Make sure you convey your passion in your writing, if you really believe in the topic this should come across in your writing and you should be able to make your readers believe too!

2. Make sure your blog is well structured / organised and easy to read. If you are writing a long and complicated blog entry it is a good idea to break your content up to make it more readable. You could do this by:

  • separating paragraphs with clear headings that indicate exactly what that part of the blog is about
  • using bullet points-use images to break content up.
  • using images to break up content. Images can be striking and eye catching and can be an effective means of maintaining someone’s interest.
  • numbering paragraphs or content

3. Is the information you are providing of value? This is something you need to be continually asking yourself when you are writing your blog entry as we now live in a fast paced environment where people want immediate answers. Make sure you keep your blog short and sweet, don’t waste time babbling on about things that are unnecessary, readers will think you are wasting their time and might turn to an alternative source to get the information that they are seeking.

Instagram Set To Advertise

Following a successful US trial, Instagram is in the process of enrolling an ad function that will allow brands to run their own adverts on the image based social sharing site. In order to test and improve the success and running of these Ads Instagram has decided that the introduction of these ads will be slow and staggered.

 

It seems that there has been some resistance to the enrolment of this ad scheme on this social channel. Taking on board these mixed feelings, during the US trial Instagram made it clear to its users that these images were advertisements by including a sponsored label and an option that allowed people to hide the ad from their news feeds if they wanted. There is also room for users to leave feedback stating what they didn’t like about the ad so that Instagram can build on these comments and produce better quality ads that users will hopefully like in the future.

 

As it appears the introduction of these Ads to the UK will be enrolled this year. This leaves great scope for interesting, energetic and creative ads to soon take over our image based social sharing channel. This leaves the question… which brands will we see jump on board?

3 Steps To Search Engine Success – Producing Quality Blog Content

There are many actions you can take to ensure your blog stands the best chance of listing well on search engines. For the purpose of this blog entry I address 3 very simple steps you can take to kick-start your blogs listing success.

1.  Insert key words into your blog entry. By doing this you will be optimising the content which is a great way of showing search engines like Google exactly what your blog is about and what it should be listed for. Search engines will recognise these key words especially if they are repeated throughout the content. Then when someone searches for one of these keywords included in your blog entry it is likely to show up in search results.

2. Is your blog SEO friendly? Have you completed the blogs Meta Tags? Many blogging programmes like WordPress will allow you to add widgets, in simple terms you can add functions that will allow you to fill in the Meta Tags for your blog entry. Meta Tags are fundamental to search engine success. You should always make sure that your blog entry has a Meta Title, Meta Description and Meta Keywords. These help tell the search engines exactly what the content in your blog is about and often how useful it is going to be to those browsing the internet. Hopefully if you followed the advice above you would have inserted keywords into your blog entry as you were writing it. By filling in your meta keywords you can show search engines exactly what these keywords are and show them exactly what you want to be listed for. (more…)

New Twitter Layout Summary

You might have already noticed that twitter has started to enrol a new profile layout. In this blog entry we take note of some of the changes that you can soon expect to see if your profile hasn’t already changed.

Profile photo – Your profile photo will be enlarged. This is particularly great for branding purposes and especially for businesses as they are able to use this space to catch and maintain attention with a powerful image.

Customise your header – Headers have now shifted so that they stretch across the screen. Twitters official recommended header sizes are 1500px (width) x 500 (height) however these dimensions seem to be causing a lot of trouble for people. Therefore other blog entries are stating that the dimensions 1500px (width) x 421px (height) are more appropriate. Due to this confusion it is worth considering the following template by blogger Pauline Cabrera as she provides a visual guide to what parts of your header will be visible on your profile. When you come around to changing your twitter profile and in particular your header, you should bear in mind that you are going to have to be patient and might have to spend some time re-sizing your image to ensure that it fits appropriately.
