Why Stanford is Going to Rock Our Free Webinar on Thursday!

I’ve been following the Pushing Social blog for around a year now, and have been consistently impressed with both the quality and frequency of content that Stanford creates. Even today as I was working on this article, I picked up a new tool from this recent post of over 50 blogging ideas to steal. I’m very excited for his savvy business blogging in seven easy steps free webinar this Thursday. I thought that it might be nice to point out some of my favorite articles from Pushing Social in advance of our interactive presentation.  Here are just a few tips I’ve picked up from Stan; I hope to see many of you online this Thursday to learn from the master himself!

The lesson behind the post is every bit as important; that sharing is a dialog which moves people to comment. If you can harness this power, you’re half the way there in your blogging!

For those of you just starting out with blogging, this article from Pushing Social on ten small business blog posts to start your blog with will prove to be very useful. When I was just starting out on our MyEntre.Net blog, I looked to this post for ideas on how I would start out. I still go back to it today to rethink the ten ideas he proposes, and how I might flip it on its head for new content.

Great Blogs Always Get This Right

The title says it all- as it should! Headlines are one of the most critical factors to driving traffic to your content. Check out Stanford’s tips for how to construct memorable and must-click blog titles.
