6 tips for creating content to capture short attention spans

 

Do emails and posts keep you interested. Or do your eyes glaze over reading posts and emails?

M-E-G-O.

Mine Eyes Glaze Over was a common classroom malady of mine. I’m a bottom-line person with the attention span of a gnat.

“Get to the point!”, cries out in my head.

Hemingway wrote short sentences and paragraphs of a couple of lines. And Earnest wrote at the 5th grade level. Many English professors said I wrote in choppy sentences. Some appreciated my writing.

My writing fans gave me better grades.

Those favoring what made laborious reading did not.

The Internet is the cause of poor reading and writing habits, some say. Communicate well and you’ll succeed online. No matter what your topic or goal.

The written word communicates ideas. The Internet connects people with content. We must remove barriers between us and our audience. That’s the quickest path to making money online.

Here’s an interesting article from Search Engine Watch. Please read how you can communicate better. Getting to the point of your post and keeping eyes on the page is ultimate SEO.

Why People Don’t Make Money Online

start a business I help people make money online. I prefer helping people wanting to start and run an Internet-based business. Sure, I offer assistance to those chasing “the dream” of fast riches and quick returns with little work. However, my goal is developing a sustainable business I can operate anywhere I have an Internet connection.

Never forget: Traffic is the fuel running your Internet business engine.

The key to selling online is traffic. Twitter ads generate good traffic and should be part of your marketing mix.

Anyone can sell something online. I have a revenue stream selling on Amazon and eBay. You can sell something online easily. Try it today. Look around your home or apartment for something of value that you no longer need. Put it on Craig’s List and I bet you sell it in a few days.

I mention Craig’s list because that is the easiest method. Run your ad. Then buyers contact you.  You meet and exchange the item for cash. No checks, please. Cash only.  

Although I and others make money selling on Amazon and other e-commerce sites, my sustainable business takes another direction. However, the process is similar.

In all my Internet businesses I seek to optimize and automate the processes. I use Buffer, a free utility, to post many times a day on social media. That’s automation.
