"I recently launched a book launch and used Bill Mcintosh's Contest Burner software to really launch my book in a whole new way and I'm very excited about it. It went so fantastically!

"I came across Bill's software and was just instantly excited about it! So I got the product, installed it within minutes, configured it and had it up and running in a very very short period of time. I used it to launch this contest in conjunction with my product launch. It brought in thousands of people who never had heard of my book." ~Testimony!!!

How Non-Writers Can Craft Business Blogs- and then post your blogs on @bfhsnetwork so we can increase your network and exposure!

How Non-Writers Can Craft Business BlogsResearch shows that 15 blogs a month can generate 1,200 new leads, gather twice as many inbound links, and use content to bolster social media engagement.But, if it was easy, everyone would do it. The key for non-writers in charge of business blogging is to begin with successful templates, and then add the main ingredients. For instance, here is what a worthwhile business blog would include:An eye-catching headlineMultimedia within the postLinked outside sourcesA structured narrative that answers the premiseConcise, scannable languageQuality, authoritative contentSmaller businesses may enlist a marketer or “that guy who knows writing” to publish blogs because that’s what everyone else does. While having content out there that promotes a business is better than nothing, blogs often are the first point of contact with new customers. Don’t let them encounter a rushed 300-word post with terrible formatting that doesn’t have a takeaway at the end.Find a TopicKnowing what to write about is just as important as how you write it. Posting to a business blog every day is possible but not worth the effort if no one reads it. Luckily, hunting down topics isn’t too difficult:Stay up to date on what competitors are blogging about. Write a response or approach the subject from your own perspective.Search through comments your readers leave on social media and blogs. These “clues” can lead to increased interaction with followers and help you leverage the content that works.Research trending subjects on Google and news outlets. Is there some industry trend or social event in progress that can be recycled as a topic?Not every topic needs to cover a major controversy or explore groundbreaking research. Business bloggers should take the “one for me, one for them” approach. This means that some topics can be focused on you, your business, and new things you’re doing and how they apply to readers.For other topics, avoid begin promotional; even distance yourself from the content This type of blog is by far the most commonly read because the blogs are “generic,” so to speak, in that the topics can be appreciated by non-clients.Another strategy is to practice topic targeting, or writing for a specific audience or demographic. Take Facebook. Business pages allow admins to see who “likes” their content and where they are from. So, if you are you a real estate company with a number of 25- to 30-year-olds followers in Chicago, consider blogs to fill this niche, like “What First Time Homeowners in Chicago Should Look For in a New Home.” These are called Facebook Insights.CLICK TO READ THE REMAINING OF OF THIS ARTICLE HERE!  See More
