The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 2/13/15

Feb 13, 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 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 finding your ideal audience on Twitter and the myths of traditional publishing.

“When I first started using Twitter years ago I seemed to only have followers who were other social media or marketing experts. It’s great to connect with those people but I wanted to help authors and connect with them – not other experts!”

Wally’s Comment: Good tips on finding some of the people on Twitter that you want to find you.

From Wise Ink: 5 Myths of Traditional Publishing

“Last week we took you through five myths about self-publishing, so now it’s only fair we take a look at how the other half lives!”

Wally’s Comment: If you’re thinking about using a traditional publisher, this is a must-read
