Hi Jenn, You've absolutely hit the nail on the head. Knowing your audience is key. Also, I think, it depends on whether what you are tweeting or blogging or sharing about is closely related to the issues (including tragedies) happening in the news. Let's face it. If you blog and share pretty much exclusively about Pacific Rim finance, there are some news events, no matter how tragic, that may seem incongruous to your followers and readers. Trying to shoehorn the issue in may come off as simply inappropriate. Above all, know who you are talking to and use common sense."
Hi Nach, Way to thumb your nose at convention. In fact, there are a few examples of very successful entrepreneurs who started new businesses based on no knowledge of the business they were entering and guided only by passion. For example, Mark and Stacy Andrus, founders of Stacy's Pita Chip Co. knew nothing about the the food business when they bought their first food cart. Now, the successful snack company is a near staple of the popular snack industry. "
Hi David, There are some qualifications to be made here. If we're talking about ranking high for your name or company name, well, that's not much of a trick if your the only one on the Web and it won't bring traffic. If it's a camera shop in East Jabip and East Jabip has a population of 432, again, ranking is no trick and traffic will be nothing to write home about. So, what we're ranking high for makes a difference and that's where the real challenge comes in."
Howdy Ehsan, Again this may sound a bit old school to some, but, just like blog carnivals or other techniques you seem to hear less about in the age of social media, I think it makes a certain amount of sense. Most importantly we have to remember that blogs are the original social media and that engagement in this case takes place on someone's site not on a third party network like Facebook or Twitter. "
