This video with Paul Gillin is about the basics of writing engaging social media messages. With so many posts, tweets and chatter filling social media, it’s almost impossible to get a message through.
You need to be distinctive. Start by understanding the culture and the medium, speaking the language of your audience and using angles that provoke conversation and response.
Writing for social media is about finding angles, factoids and quotes that intrigue and provoke using words that no one expects you to use. Don’t just tell your audience to look at something; make it something they have to look at.
This webinar covers the basics of writing for the blogosphere as well as how to write for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn in a manner that recognizes the unique culture of each.
