How to Encourage (and Accept) User Submissions

Opening your website to user submissions can be a great way to fill in the gaps between your regular content schedules. It also provides you a great way to introduce new topics to the community through a different set of eyes and expertise.

Getting Good with YouTube: Gaining Subscribers [Part 3]

Now that you’ve overcome the hurdle of producing video you get to face a new challenge: getting views and gaining subscribers. Anyone can produce a video and upload it to YouTube but it doesn’t necessarily mean that people are going to watch it.

You really do need to treat YouTube much like your website – where you’re pushing offers, trying to build a following, and keeping it updated with fresh content. Throughout … Continue reading

Content Production Frequency: The Pros and Cons of Timing

An age old debate I still see on a regular basis is the question of how frequently you should publish content to your website and its blog. I’m a firm believer in the idea of writing at least 500 words a day but this doesn’t mean each one of those pieces are going to be published. In fact, there’s a whole lot of downsides to publishing too frequently. The same can be true if you take too long in between updates. Your challenge as a blogger is to find the happy medium.
