    Yes, you read that right!

    You can write content that “drives” traffic.

    There are very few words that can deeply affect the emotions of a blogger and one of those few words is the word “traffic”. The unfortunate thing is that when it comes to getting traffic to our blogs we’re all used to the idea of using tactics, with little concern for the kind of content we create.

If you’re ready to start writing for traffic then read below to get a few tips to help you write content that drives traffic.

    I like statistics as much as the next guy (which means not very much) but I don’t need statistics to tell me Twitter is a popular small business tool: My plumber has a Twitter account.

    (No, I haven’t checked out his tweets. I found out because his [easyazon-link asin=”0470624663″]Twitter[/easyazon-link] handle is on his business card… and his invoices, and his envelopes, and the side of his truck.)

  • Marketing Video That Fails From The Start

    The biggest mistake anyone can make in producing a marketing video is also the most common:  It’s what I call, ‘hosing down the business.’

    Here ‘s an example:  Imagine you’re a firefighter and you arrive at the scene of a fire.   You see smoke beginning to come out of an upstairs window.  Do you take out a giant fire hose and begin spraying down the entire house?  Of course not.  You identify the specific area that’s burning, and go after that.  Not only do you get the fire out faster, you conserve a lot of water in the process.

    The first temptation in creating a [easyazon-link asin=”078974726X”]marketing video[/easyazon-link] is to grab a camera, and shoot everything you feel is important about your business.    When you do that, you break just about every marketing rule there is.

    This whole [easyazon-link asin=”0470616342″]blogging[/easyazon-link] deal can get confusing at times. We start off like gang busters with a passion and purpose. We write. We share. We create. We even think we are doing exactly what we were called out of the depths to do.

    Everything is pixie dust and unicorns. Beautiful. Exuberant. Near perfect…and then we wake up from the dream and realize that blogging is work. It takes focus, persistence and execution.

    Been there? Enjoying the tee shirt?

    I understand.

    Being a [easyazon-link asin=”B003MAK5C8″]business blogger[/easyazon-link] isn’t always so easy. Aside from having to produce quality content and build up a dedicated following within a saturated business blogoshere, once you decide to express yourself online you are taking a risk. You are constantly opening yourself up to criticism and maybe even harassment, and that can be disconcerting, especially since your potential audience may either be close to home or be difficult to estimate or predict.

    Some business bloggers choose to separate their personal and professional lives online using a pen name, alter-identity, or even an anonymous blogging voice. Not only does this feel much safer, but it may also allow the blogger more freedom of expression.

    That said, there are several reasons why it still pays to keep your blogging persona as real as possible. Here are six of them:
