2/14/14: The Writing Edge for Business Writers

Feb 14, 2014 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on using Twitter and faster book rollouts.

“There is one big advantage Twitter has over Facebook. It’s not filtered. That is both a blessing and a curse. It means you can see every tweet as it streams past from your followers. But it can be overwhelming. That is why using lists and #hashtags are vital to glean the gems from the garbage on Twitter.”

From the Julie Bosman: Impatience Has Its Reward: Books Are Rolled Out Faster
“While the television industry has begun catering to impatient audiences by releasing entire series at once, the book business is upending its traditional timetable by encouraging a kind of binge reading, releasing new works by a single author at an accelerated pace.”
