4 Tips for Writing Nurture Emails People Will Read

When it comes to effective marketing, you want to do more than just talk at a prospective client. You want to talk TO them. You want to build a relationship with them, to become their friend. And so like a helpful friend you try to anticipate their questions and provide answers, often in the form of nurture emails. The only problem is that people sometimes don’t listen to their friends. If the friend doesn’t have anything relevant or interesting to say, they’ll tune them out. The same is  true with the nurture emails you’ve been sending out.

4 Techniques for Writing Compelling Headlines

Sure, you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can certainly judge an article by its headline. We do it all the time. Think back to the news stories you skimmed over the last time you wanted to catch up with current events. Some of them you read because you were interested in the topic. Others you skipped over entirely. And there were a few where you just couldn’t help yourself— you just had to click on. Why? What made them stand out? If a writer could bottle whatever it is and sell it, he or she would be rich indeed.

Why You Need Good PR for Your Small Business

“There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”

      ~ P.T. Barnum
