Social Media Strategy for Starters

Here’s a useful, simple beginners guide to a social media marketing strategy map anyone can use:

Blog two or three times per week and keep posts to 250-300 words. Make them keyword rich(words you would enter into Google Search to find YOU). Make sure each post gives one interesting or useful piece of information to the reader about your area of expertise.

The same day you blog, post a link to that blog on your Facebook Fan Page, adding an invitation to join you on the blog for more posts on your subject matter. Auto-post it directly to your Twitter account by linking your Twitter account to your Facebook fan page through this Facebook app link: http://Facebook.com/Twitter.

The next day press the share button under your Fan Page post and share it to your personal profile.  Your friends are your closest supporters.  Ask them to share your post with their friends, leave you comments and let you know if you can help them with your area of expertise.

Two days later, turn your blog post into a simple, how-to video by reading it into your web cam. Post the video to YouTube and tag the video with your keywords.

This is an over simplified map, designed to get you thinking about sharing content throughout social media.  There are many, many subtle and more complicated nuances and strategies to increase your visibility, but this is a good start. Read more…

Powerful Non-Fiction Book Titles Attract Audiences

Implementing this fact is not very easy. Here are a few tactics to write book titles that are compelling, as well as interesting.

Question in the Title
A question in your article title is sure to get noticed. Questions draw attention and will make readers want to go through your article to find the answers. “Is your diet making you lose weight”, “Are you a caring parent?” are all good examples. 
Such questions work because they create doubts in the mind of the reader. They feel they do not know enough on the subject and read your book to find more information.

“How –to” Titles
The ‘how to’ titles have also become very popular. They are helpful as they give precise instructions about how to execute a particular task. The “how to” book with its detailed instructions takes care of this doubt.


Numbers in your Titles

You can try using a number in your book title. It tells potential readers that your book is meaningful and contains useful information. It also makes the information provided in your article appear reliable and practical. To go a step further, write the number in your title in its digit format instead of spelling out the word. This helps readers to scan your book title more quickly and  increases the overall visibility of your title.

But not only book titles for non-fiction, also article titles and blog titles will benefit from these tips.
