Take The 30 Day Headline Challenge

30 Days To Becoming A Headline Ninja

Who wants to become a Headline Ninja?

If that's you then I'm inviting you to join my 30 Day Headline Ninja Challenge.

Here's the way it works:

Do to this site and download a free PDF called "Headline Hacks – A Cheatsheet For Writing Blog Posts That Go Viral" by Jon Morrow.

If you want to become a better blogger (a specialized type of writing) you really need to know Jon Morrow because he is one of the best bloggers and blog writing trainers on the internet.

Before he started his own site several years ago he was Associate Editor of CopyBlogger.com, one of the top copywriting training blogs on the net, for several years.

What we are going to do (a group of 10 of us) is to 'start at the top' and become Headline Ninjas by using Jon's free PDF guide on writing killer headlines. You know, of course, that the headline is the single most important part of your articles…or even your emails.

Jon's guide has 50 different headline formulas. All with examples and discussions of why they work. We will write an article every day for 30 days (it doesn't have to be too long) and use a different headline formula each day.

Write about anything you want, attach the title to it, and we will meet in my online conference room every day, read our articles with their titles, and get everybody else's response. I'm thinking the whole process shouldn't take more than 30 minutes per meeting.

Again, here is where you can get Jon's free guide. It really is free. You will love it!

I'm not an affiliate of any kind with Jon so don't panic about that. But I have downloaded this guide before at least twice. It's recently been updated (for 2016) and I always get something new every time I go through it.

I promise you'll love it. And if you're in Markethive you know that we've got a powerful blogging system, right?

But that's just the "launcher". We still have to load it up with the right ammunition…starting with a dynamite title.

So, that's it. It'll be sorta like a 'lab' high school or college chemistry (without the bad smells). We'll be getting real experience and feedback in a supportive environment. We might be expressing some opinions but the object will be constructive suggestions or appreciation.

I don't want to have more than 10 people in this group… knowing that some people will bail out or miss a few meetings. But that's OK because it isn't a job. It's an opportunity to get better at something we all know we need to be good at if we want to make money on the internet.

Let me know via email or via Skype ("atwill4") if you want 'in'. Remember. ONLY 10 people. e might even develop some collaborative partnerships too. You never what can happen when great minds meet.

P.S. Probably what I'll do is use the "How To Write" group that I've already set up in Markethive. If you want to join but you're not in that group, I think it would make sense to go ahead and join. I do put soe ideas in there that I do not put outside of it.

If you're not in Markethive but would like to be in this group, go ahead and join Markethive…here. It's free.

"30 Days from now, Rodney…we'll all be Headline Ninjas!"

The Amazing Power of Blogging

The Amazing Power of Blogging

Original article by Tony Cordingley

So what is a blog? After all, it just looks like a regular website to many people. In fact, it is one of the best ways of holding a conversation online. You can hold this conversation with as many people as you want and it is only limited by the amount of people who come to your blog.

What is a blog?

It is a great way to connect with people especially those with similar interests to yourself. Simply put up interesting or controversial thoughts and opinions and invite comment. If you have a particular passion you can easily attract interest from similarly passionate people and stimulate further interest in the subject.

Of course, it hasn't taken long for commercial interests to cotton on to this and see the money making opportunities inherent in this technology. The main object here is to establish yourself as an authority on a particular subject and to build a profile for yourself.

This can work for anybody from an internet marketer selling money making products to your local real estate agent or neighbourhood lawyer. However, building credibility has it's cost. You need to maintain contact with your readership and regularly write interesting and valuable content for your blog. This regular input is the most daunting aspect of blogging unless you are a skilled and competent writer. Fortunately, these written pieces do not have to be very long but they do need to be regular, especially if you are also hoping to get noticed and indexed by the search engines. Getting on the first page of Google is incredibly good for business.

Blog

Be careful to avoid blatant advertising in your blogging. Otherwise, it is all too easy to put people off. A casual recommendation is the best promotion. Building your profile and authority will have all the positive spin-off to bring people knocking on the office door. Encourage questions that can showcase your knowledge in your answers.

Google alerts can be emailed to your email address daily and can be a source of inspiration on what to write or discuss with your readership. Regular attendance at online forums on your subject will also give you ideas on what is of current interest on your subject.

How to start a blog

Blogging can be purely a platform to share your passion on a chosen subject or it can be a great way to build your business. If it is for building your business be careful not to be too obvious about it. Give good content, good advice and be open and conversational and you can't go wrong.

Blogging is incredibly easy to set up. Google's Blogger.com or WordPress are very easy to set up even for those challenged by technology. And there is now also a new blogging platform for entrepreneurs called Marketive. There is no need to do anything fancy just blog regularly with good content and try to remain current with what is happening in your niche.
