Get them blogging. Make genuine content partnerships with other relevant sites or blogs that want your content because it has value for their readers.

The professor only lists (links) to the other papers most relevant and most important to their paper. This system was pure at its heart.

TWIST IMAGE [Blog] In Defense Of TED
| THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2013
The tagline for TED is, "ideas worth spreading," and while I've done my own, fair share, of doing just that in past blog posts, I am truly an unapologetic TEDster who has been going to the event since it was last held in Monterey, California, and will move mountains to ensure that my schedule is clear, so that I can attend the annual event and not worry about my other commitments. TED is the most important conference out there. TED is so much more than a conference. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED is not about sharing (to me). To not be a family man.

If you run a blog that covers a few or many different topics then make sure you place the appropriate ads to place on the pages that are guest posts.

Last week’s post on writing for a diverse audience sparked a great discussion, with some really interesting thoughts contributed by bloggers at all stages of building a blog, and from a range of markets and niches.

PROBLOGGER [Blog] Creating Great Content for Today’s Social Web

Going a little deeper, consider using Facebook Comments instead of the built-in comments capability of your blog platform. Also, think of ways to entice your reader to engage more with your blog. The most subtle part of promotion is the way you use the social networks themselves as a direct extension of your blog. Use these platforms to communicate the same types of messages as you do on your blog, but in smaller doses of course. Originally at: Blog Tips at ProBlogger.

| MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2011
This blog post was contributed by Harrison Kratz. There's nothing new about networking to build business relationships, but social media has turned networking on its head by allowing businesses and customers to connect on new levels. Unlike advertising, which is built around one-way commercial messages, social media promotes two-way conversations and relationships. Many businesses recognize the potential of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube, but many are also at a loss about how to tap into the real power of social media.

SOCIALNOMICS [Blog] Is Your Website a Bookmark or a Bankroller?
| TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013
Blog Posting. '“If you build it, they will come.” Many recall this notable quote from the movie, Field of Dreams. While this worked for Ray Kinsella, it doesn’t quite translate into the real world, or the virtual world for that matter. Unfortunately, many business owners employ this mindset while building or redesigning their websites. We refer to this type of web presence as a bookmark. The only time people visit the website is the initial look, if that, which will inevitably lead to a failure to achieve your goals of profit-laden sales. The second item is the internet marketing plan.

PROBLOGGER [Blog] How to Be Profound
| SUNDAY, JULY 8, 2012
But in some blogging niches—self help, personal development, and other emotive categories—”profound” is a word that’s often used to describe posts. trend I see often on blogs is that of using formatting to emphasise “profound” or meaningful points within a post. Originally at: Blog Tips at ProBlogger. Before you ask, let me start by saying that I don’t feel that I’m a profound writer, or that many of the things I have to say fit the description of “profound”! For bloggers, profound content is a worthy goal. Clarity.

FRESHNETWORKS [Blog] Build your own community or go where people are? Do both
| TUESDAY, MAY 12, 2009
common debate among those working in marketing and social media is between engaging people on your own domain - in an online community that you build and manage yourself - and engaging people where they are - out in social networks like Facebook and MySpace or on YouTube, external blogs or forums. Image by MattRhodes via Flickr. There is, of course, a place for both of these things - engaging people in social networks can often be more suitable for campaign-based activities. But in many cases this either/or debate seems rather strange to those of us at FreshNetworks. Some more reading.

Jackson blogs at on public relations, social media and communications at Proper Propaganda , which allows him to indulge a strange love of Communist art. Guest post by Jackson Wightman. ROI (a.k.a. return on investment) is important. But it’s oft-derided in digital circles. If you invest $1,000 dollars in shares of a firm, you need to know what that $1,000 is doing for you. If it is not doing anything positive, you’ll move it somewhere else. The same goes for investments of time and effort. That’s a pretty good, if obvious, question. Also reasonable. Quite the contrary actually.

PROBLOGGER [Blog] How to Increase Product Profitability After Launch
| TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2010
Many bloggers develop products as a way to monetize their blogging, but one problem that more bloggers are running into is that they become very dependent upon product launches. product launch can bring a lot of profitability to your blog, but what happens when things die down after that launch? Another great way to do it is to go back through the archives of your blog to old posts. Your old posts are still being read by people: people will be arriving at them from Google, they’ll be arriving at them from other blogs that link to them. Video Posts
