The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 10/30/15

Oct 30, 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 how to write great list posts, using Twitter to increase reach and engagement, and an interview with Julie Winkle Giulioni about building influence online.

From James Chartrand: 7 Simple Ways to Write a List Post That Gets Read

“Here are a few tried-and-true list-post tips that keep readers on the page and ready to read more from you.”

From Elena Lockett : How to Use Twitter To Increase Reach and Engagement

“Twitter. It’s a big scary social media platform (for those who don’t know how to use it right). But an incredibly useful engagement tool for those who do.”

From Becky Robinson: Q and A with Julie Winkle Giulioni Building Influence Online

“Three years ago, my team and I partnered with Julie Winkle Giulioni to launch her first book, Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go. Since that time, I’ve continued to admire the way Julie shows up online. I asked Julie to take some time to talk about what has worked well for her in building online influence in hopes that her learning will be of help to our readers. She has experienced tremendous results and benefits from her online influence, starting with continued book sales over time.”
