1. HD Video
I recently purchased a new HD (1080P) camcorder from Samsung for $250 and it’s the best investment I’ve made in years. These days readers want to put a face with content and if possible they want to see example for what you write about (sweeping landscapes for a travel blog, tech reviews for a technology website, etc). HD video allows users to become even more engaged since they are likely to watch your videos in full screen mode which means they are giving you their full attention. Read More

How to Create a Catchy Title in 2012

Everyone knows that readers scroll down a blog until they find a title they like. I do it all the time, and why shouldn’t I? A title is supposed to let me know what the article is about, and I am not interested in spending my time reading a bunch of articles that don’t interest me. Ironically enough, this is the attitude that I as a blog editor try so hard to counteract. As a blog owner, you want every article to be of interest to someone who comes to your blog. You want them to see that catchy title and decide that the article is worthy of their precious time.

In other words, the title matters. The title is the first impression of the article. Think about how important it is to make a good first impression on a job interview, on a date, when someone pulls up to your house. It matters, and a title follows these same rules.

Properly Implementing Polls To Help Create Original Content

Polling OutputCreating original content is a crowded field that includes hundreds of millions of websites can be a daunting task. In 99.99% of cases you may spend more time collecting information, tracking down news breaks and looking for sources then you will actually writing content. However if you have an engaged user base you might find that creating new content is just a matter of asking the right questions…literally.

Here are some quick tips to help you ask the right questions when creating polls, questions that will allow you to build a new post around the answers you discover from your readers polling results.

Setting Up Multiple Choice Polling Questions

Start each of your poll questions with at least 3-4 potential answers. If you ask a simple “yes” or “no” question you are stuck writing “10 people said they do like X product and 5 people said they didn’t not X product.” However if you have 3-4 options you can break down your users responses into various percentages and then discuss how products/situations differ and compare to one another. You can also use multiple choice answers to create nice infographics (graphs, charts, etc). Read More
