At the beginning of each month, we’ll round up five of our favorite links around the internet to help you better run your business or blog in the month ahead.
Get ready for a productive November with the help of these five useful resources.
We all want to save more time when it comes to blogging, right? Emily from My Adaptable Career offers up tips to batch your tasks and get more done.
“Batching your work reduces task switching. Instead of flitting from one small task to the next, you focus on a single type of work for several hours.”
Want to improve engagement on your website? Neil Patel says you need to pay attention to your site’s design. We agree!
“Your brand’s message isn’t limited to the word choices that you make. The environment under which you present your message is equally (perhaps even more) important.”
If you’ve ever wished for the ability to have a couple more characters in your tweets, your wish is Twitter’s command! Longer tweets are here, and Buffer’s Ash Read breaks down what it all means.
“Now, @names in replies, media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) and quoted Tweets will no longer be counted against the valuable 140 characters that make up a tweet.”
Starting an online business is an exciting endeavor. However, it also costs money. Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income shares exactly what you’ll need to consider financially if you’re looking to take the leap.
“There’s a common misconception about what it really costs to get started. Most people, including me at one point, think that it requires loads of money. I understand how that can be discouraging.”
It’s the dream, right? Turning your blog into a business and turning your blog readers into customers. Alicia Rades explains how to do just that in this ProBlogger post.
“More traffic doesn’t necessarily mean more customers. You have to be able to leverage your blog content in a way that convinces readers to trust you and buy from you.”
