SO we have all been waiting for Apple to release it’s latest rendition of the Iphone.  There are lots of updates to the phone including wireless headphones, the coolest feature of course is the camera, a new system which is described in several patents that were granted in the last year, give the images taken with the camera a nice bokeh.  The software identifies people and objects that are the subject of the image and blurs out the background.  Its new f/1.8 aperture helps to create this feature.  We have been expecting a great camera upgrade and Apple has not disappointed.

The new wireless headphones boast high quality audio. It’s a great upgrade being wireless and they have a cool new look.  airpodscase-pf-open_airpods-pf_iphone7-jetblk-pf_pr-print(I can’t tell you how many pairs of corded earphones I have replaced because of broken wires)  The new phone features an extended battery life and  The OS 10 operating system improves on Siri and other creature comforts.

Blogging and other Tips

Venturing into blogging may appear daunting. But, here’s the simple truth; blogging is among the easiest ways to become part of the online community. If you are asking the question ‘how should you blog?’, then it means you are ready to leverage valuable tips for blogging effectively. So, here are top tips that would enable your blog to be positioned for success;chosen_rocks

Tip 1: Spell Out Your Goals

If you do not spell out your goals for blogging, you will end up beating about the bush or blogging aimlessly. If you are able to state your goals for the blogs you want to create, then you are already on your way to successful blogging.  Some of the questions you can ask yourself in order to help set your blogging goals include;

  • Am I blogging to advertise and promote my offerings (products and/or services)?
  • Should I rather target establishing myself as an authority in my niche instead?
  • Should I go into blogging as an avenue to share my ideas with others and just have fun?

These questions and more will help you set goals for your blog, both short-term and long-term goals. Thus, what you intend to achieve with your blog in 3-6 months (short-term goal) or 2 years and more (long-term goal) should be clearly defined and if possible written out. Subsequently, you will design, create and promote your blog along the line of your stated goals.

Tip 2: What Audience are You Targeting?

If you determine what audience you are targeting with your blog, then the entire design as well as content of your blog will be such that would appeal to your audience. For instance, if you are targeting people who desire to lose weight, your blog design and posts should meet and even surpass their expectation in terms of valuable tips for attaining their weight loss goals.

Tip 3: Stay Consistent with your Blogs

Do not forget that your blog represents your image and unique message in the eyes of your audience. It’s just like your brand, so do not move away from your line of brand and your brand’s message when designing and creating content for your blog. Keep the image and message (your brand) consistent through the contents you post and any other activity connected to your blog. You will easily gain readers’ loyalty and generate traffic by staying consistent with the message of your blog.

Tip 3: Show the Readers They are Valuable

It’s a two-way thing, as your readers keep coming to read (reflecting loyalty), you also have to reflect their own value by employing some strategies. Thus, ensure that your blogging is a two-way conversation. Extend invitation to your audience for participation by requesting for comments and questions from your readers. This is a great way to keep the flow of the conversation, and to show that you value your readers.

Also, other tips such as being visible, being persistent, improving your blogging skills, taking risks and commenting on other people’s blog posts will help you achieve success with your blogging.

Top 3 Reasons Exactly Why Content Writing Is Important

If you’ve not integrated content writing into your online business plan, you don’t need to wait any longer; this is because content works wonders indeed when it comes to generating traffic to your website. Ongoing content remains one of the top ‘evergreen’ tools for online marketing that brings effective result. It is easier to reach out to a wider audience through ongoing content writing. As you produce high quality articles and circulate them through article directories, under the relevant category, your website will be in for uncontrollable traffic as readers follow the URL in the content to your business site.

Let’s examine three top reasons why article writing is important:

  1. 1.    Effective Traffic Generation Strategy

As mentioned earlier, when it comes to generating traffic naturally and massively, content writing is an evergreen tool. Specifically, articles help an online business marketer to generate targeted traffic since your articles will target those that are in need of what your business has to offer.

Ongoing content creation can help you generate quality traffic through various mediums.  One of such major ways is article directories and other spots online where you can submit your articles, with the privilege to include your business profile (e.g. URL, company name and other essential details) in an ‘author’s resource box’. Subsequently, readers can get specific info about your business and link to your website through the URL provided in the author’s resource box. This is why you must provide high quality and relevant contents, such that the readers would not be able to resist and would not delay in clicking the URL to your website.

Another way you can generate targeted traffic through ongoing content creation is‘re-publishing’ of your content by other websites in your niche. However, your content must be unique and also provides great value before it can get such attention. The websites republishing your high quality content will include your URL, so that readers can link back to your website. Each time someone links back to your website, respect with the search engines is established, and your chances of ranking high on search engine result pages also improve significantly.

  1. 2.    Immediate Promotional Opportunities

Another great benefit of ongoing content creation is instant promotional opportunities. There are some article marketing services that enable you to promote your business directly in your articles. By so doing, you can instantly introduce your offering (product or service) to your readers who are most likely to be potential customers. However, you need to initiate a means of achieving this without sounding too ‘promotional’ upfront. So, you will identify a problem or felt need of your target audience in the article and proffer an effective solution. Now, the link to the solution will point to your website where the reader will land by following the URL. However, such article marketing service will usually have rules to link embedment on your content, which you must abide to.

  1. 3.    Quality Credibility Building

As you continue in ongoing quality content creation in your niche, each valuable article you produce and distribute adds additional boost to your credibility. In essence, you gradually become an authority in your niche. Subsequently, you will eventually become a center of solution in your niche.

Indeed, ongoing content writing is an important tool in online marketing that guarantees quality result at all times.
