The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 10/23/15

Oct 23, 2015 | 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 articles and blog posts that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. Some weeks there are more pointers than others.

This week I’m pointing you to pieces on increasing your Twitter following and telling a story with data.

From Apurva Jog: Top 5 Twitter Management Tips to Increase Your Followers Organically

“People still don’t get it… Twitter has been an influential social network for a long time now, but there are still marketers who don’t quite understand its power (or how to use it). This is especially true when it comes to growing a big list of followers.”

From Tracy Allison Altman: 5 ways to tell a value story with data.

“Always remember it’s not a data story you’re telling, it’s a value story. To make that happen, you must demonstrate clarity and establish credibility.”
