The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 10/9/15

Oct 9, 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 better Facebook content and developing your marketing plan.

From Frances Caballo: Authors: Learn How to Create Shareable Facebook Content

“As usual, this week’s episode includes summaries of blog posts with awesome tips about how to create shareable Facebook content and, of course, I have your tip of the week.”

From James Rose: A 12-Month Strategic Plan for Marketing Your Book before Release

“Marketing does not come naturally to me. It has been a struggle to get my mind wrapped around the many facets of marketing a self-published book. I made many mistakes and wasted a fair amount of money. But I learned the actual marketing process is not too complicated.”

Thanks to Joel Friedlander for pointing me to this post.
