Anyone who has to write content on a regular basis, whether for a newsletter, or a blog post, or some other type of print material, periodically runs into a mental brick wall, where we ask ourselves, So what the heck can I write about now?
I stand in awe and amazement at people like Seth Godin and Ben Settle, who not only promote writing daily emails, but actually find enough interesting things to say, to do it.
My weekly blog post and email are about what I can manage.
And since I find reading everything that comes into my Inbox to be a daunting proposition, I use that reason to stick to my weekly schedule (except when I am promoting my free webinars, of course).
So it was a relief and heartening to me to read a recent article in Entrepreneur entitled How to Create Compelling Online Content That Gets Traffic.
In the article, Brian Dean lists strategies from five of the twenty-two innovators included in Mitch Myerson’s book, Success Secrets of the Online Marketing Superstars.
The suggestion I found most compelling was Ultimate Guides.
Evidently many of us appreciate other people finding great resources on the web for us to use, given how busy we are in our lives.
According to a training I took, Lead Pages has found that these types of free offers convert better than any other type of freebie you could offer in exchange for getting someone’s email address.
