The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 1/2/15

  |   Better Writing Print Friendly and PDF

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 social media trends and bad habits you should break.

From Adele Halsall: 7 Top Social Media Trends That Will Impact Your Marketing In 2015

“2014 saw the world of social media take some new turns; some for better, others for worse. We’ve seen mobile use skyrocket; activity on social media during TV shows rise (according to research by Virgin Media) and the arrival of shopping via Twitter. But with the year coming to a close, it’s time to have a look at which of these social media trends will take centre stage in 2015’s social landscape.”

From Stacey Roberts: Say Goodbye to Bad Habits: Five You Should Ditch in the New Year

“I’ve developed a few bad habits over the years, and from what I’ve heard, I’m not the only one. Let’s refine our workload and jettison these ways of thinking that don’t serve us well. Let’s swap them for a more intelligent strategy that will make our blogs stand out from the crowd and provide use to our readers.”
