I’ve done it again. Ever since I merged Just the FAQs in with BlogAid I’ve been tweaking my posting habits to suit. For a while I carried on the practice of Tech Tips Tuesday from JTF and moved Blog Tips to Thursday. Then I combined it and title them Blog and Tech Tip Tuesday. Since I’ve started reporting online marketing news and social media too, I’ve decided to change the name again to simply Tips Tuesday.
In this week’s edition you’ll find tips for capitalizing on what you know through teaching, blogging, article marketing, and Q&A sites. I’ve also culled some good links for building your email list and local search tools. Enjoy!
We are all walking encyclopedias on at least one topic. Problem is, most of us take for granted the value of what we know. You can actually turn teaching into online marketing success. Copyblogger has a nice post asking Has the Internet Made Teaching Lucrative? And the answer is yes!
