The Daily Feed Issue #17: Curing writer's block

Welcome to Issue #17 of The Daily Feed. If this email was forwarded to you by a friend, you can subscribe on this page. You can read previous editions of The Daily Feed on our blog.

Today I have writer's block so what better subject to write about than finding the cure. In previous editions of The Daily Feed I've written about the importance of creating new, unique and useful content to get traffic from search engines. It's tough to come up with an on-topic page of great content every day for your blog or website, so here are a few tips to overcome writer's block. 

CopyBlogger says the best way to overcome writer's block is to start digging through famous quotes and draw inspiration from them. Many quotes can be the seed for an entire blog entry. Wikiquote is a great resource for finding quotes. In fact the quote on the home page today would make a fine blog entry:  "The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less." ~ Eldridge Cleaver ~

Hemingway, one of my favorite authors, wrote a lot about his own life experiences. If you're run out of things to write about, one approach is to go and have some fun or go out and have an adventure. Clamber down into a canyon you've never been in to go fishing. Or walk up to 3 random strangers in the mall and ask them a question. That should quickly fill your literary fuel tank. 

There are the usual cliche's of "Carry a notebook with you" or "go and get some excercise - the blood flow to your brain will increase creativity". Well what if you weren't carrying the darn notebook with you and now you're working to a deadline? Or it's 2am and the neighbors might call the cops if they see you out running right now. That's the situation I find myself in on this Tuesday morning at 2:22am pacific standard time.

The very best advice I've ever read on overcoming writer's block is the following from Gary Bencivenga, a former Madison Avenue ad exec:

"I discovered that "writer's block" is just a symptom of a rather easily cured malady—"LRS," or Lazy Research Syndrome. It took me a while to realize that the best copywriters are the most tenacious researchers. Like miners, they dig, drill, dynamite, and chip until they have carloads of valuable ore. John Caples advised me once to gather seven times more interesting information than I could possibly use."

That's all for today's edition. Click here to send an email to my personal email address and tell me what you would like to read about in upcoming editions of The Daily Feed.

Defining Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing: Managed Cloud Services

Anticipated cost efficiencies associated with technologies, such as virtualization and automation, have driven early interest in cloud computing. Before making the leap to move their critical application workloads to cloud, however, enterprises require a higher threshold of management, support, reliability, and security.
In his general session at Cloud Expo East, Navisite's Senior Director, Marketing, William Toll examined enterprise requirements for cloud computing, while defining the concept of managed cloud service and how it is going to address those key concerns. He also introduced NaviSite's Managed Cloud Services offering and discussed their unique resource-based pricing model that provides enterprises flexibility to pay as you go yet give them full control on predictability on usage of those resources.

The Daily Feed Issue #16: Evaluating link exchange proposals

Welcome to Issue #16 of The Daily Feed. If this email was forwarded to you by a friend, you can subscribe on this page. You can read previous editions of The Daily Feed on our blog.

In previous editions of The Daily Feed I've chatted about the importance of link development. If you run a blog or website that gets a reasonable amount of traffic you've probably been approached a lot by people wanting to exchange links with you. Should you do it? That's the subject of today's Daily Feed.

I'll cut right to the chase: Google doesn't like link exchange programs. They have a page talking about link schemes and it says you'll be penalized if you engage in "excessive" link exchanges. They don't define what excessive is. But here's some interesting gossip. When this page first came out in 2007 the paragraph that deals with link exchanges read as follows:


Examples of link schemes can include:
link exchange and reciprocal links schemes ("link to me and I'll link to you.") 

After receiving some backlash from the webmaster community they changed it to read:

Examples of link schemes can include:
Excessive reciprocal links or excessive link exchanging ("link to me and I'll link to you.")

Notice the change? Clearly they don't like link exchanges and they'll tolerate some exchanging of links between websites but they aren't clear on how much that is. 

My advice to you is the following:
  1. Only exchange links with 2 or 3 websites that are VERY relevant. If you have a website about coffee, then only exchange links with other websites that talk about coffee, and the same brand of coffee that you talk about. 
  2. Don't exchange links with a site that has exchanged links with many other sites. They may be penalized by Google and best case they won't give you any boost in ranking and worst case they'll cause you to be penalized too.
  3. Install Google's toolbar and check what the site's pagerank is. If it's less than 3 then I wouldn't bother. 
  4. Visit the site and click "view source" in your browser's view menu. Check if the links to other sites have a "nofollow" attribute and don't link to the site if they do. You can read about nofollow here
In general I don't exchange links with anyone, but when you're starting out it's tough to get those first few links that help Google find your site. So exchange a few links with relevant sites but evaluate each of them carefully and limit the amount of exchanging you do.

Mark Maunder

The Daily Feed Issue #15: Nice guys finish first

Welcome to Issue #15 of The Daily Feed. If this email was forwarded to you by a friend, you can subscribe on this page.

We've put our Daily Feed archive online on our blog: http://feedjit.com/blog/ In general I'll be emailing the newsletter around 3am pacific standard time and we'll post it later each day or the following day on the archive. There was no issue 4 (a silly mistake of mine) and there was no issue 13 (superstition). 

Yesterday I mentioned that the reason I write The Daily Feed and place it carefully in your inbox each morning is because I hope to give you the kind of strong kung-fu that you need to compete in this tough economy. By compete I mean sell online. Whether you're selling yourself, your services, a product or an idea - knowing how to market online has become a basic life skill. 

Yesterday we chatted about how incredibly effective lists are for creating link bait headlines and how they create a click-whirr response to bring the kinds of people you want to your website: People who are buyers of what you're selling. 

There is a lot of advice on writing good headlines and some of it is not good advice. For many writers of headlines the definition of success is a high click through rate. But a lot of traffic is not a good thing unless those visitors are potential buyers - buyers of your ideas or buyers of your products or services. 

I recently ran across an article with the headline "15 linkbait techniques for SEO and social media". The article's own headline is great link bait. 

Number 3 on the article's list was "Have an argument". Number 4: "Say something controversial or stupid.". Number 5: "Be a contrarian". 

The article isn't wrong. You will get a lot of people linking to you and you will get a lot of clicks. But the visitors arriving on your site aren't going to be in the mood to buy your ideas, products or services. 

Remember: Your headline and link bait should bring people to your site who are potential buyers of what you are selling. First prize is that your headline actually puts them in a buying mood. 

Saying something positive will make them like you. Providing a helpful resource creates a sense of reciprocity. Posting a news item that you published first shows how well you know your subject. 

That's what I love about the list strategy mentioned yesterday: It's hard to get it wrong. By providing a list you're automatically providing something helpful and positive. Don't make the mistake of creating a negative list. For example: "10 things I hate about...". Instead create something positive, funny or useful. It will put your audience in a buying mood. Ready to buy your ideas, hire you, buy your product, subscribe to your service. 

Regards,

Mark Maunder
