    Hi Joan,
    You sure could help a lot of writers out with this one. There are so many writers out there that really don’t have a clue. Problem is if they don’t have a clue as to the subject of your post they either won’t get read or they might get read by a few and other might read part way. Good job and great value my friend.

    Hi Joan,

    Super breakdown, especially the note about blogging in great detail to reach out to your readers.

    People engage if you paint a pretty picture for individuals. You paint, people see clearly and engage persistently. Offer a reason for somebody to engage and watch how quickly individuals respond.

    I have used video quite a bit recently to engage my target audience. Something about seeing a living, breathing individual, spreading a message, which influences individuals to take note, read your post and respond.

    I received a phone call this morning from a guy I had not heard from in years. He noted about how much he enjoyed my recent video. Powerful stuff.

    Thanks for sharing the keen insight Joan.
