What you see above is an embedded post from my Facebook Page. There are a couple things I want to share with you regarding that update that you'll find particularly useful for YOUR online business...
Creative Content Angles
Today, Saturday September 21st, is World Gratitude Day. It's one of many interesting observances you can use for creative content angles on your blog and/or your social media channels. If you plan in advance, you can use holidays and observances to create sharable content (or "share bait") for higher engagement. And you can also use them to release special offers, new (related products), fun discount codes (WGD20 for 20% off on World Gratitude Day only! -for example).
For even more ideas see this post.
Be sure to download the FREE Blogging Calendar (aff). I have it printed out and keep it in a 3-ring binder on my desk for easy reference.
In addition to the holidays and observances already included in the free blogging calendar, you can find more fun quirky observances with a simple Google search. This past Wednesday (September 18th, 2013) was National Cheeseburger Day for example! Which I used as a creative content angle for a social media post here.
A Pinteresting Use of Photos & Images...
The Pinterest Easy Title Templates (aff) are great for so much more than just creating awesome Pinterest images!
As you can see in the cover graphic example to the right, these templates are also great for creating beautiful ebook & report covers. Other great uses include sharable Facebook images, and creative images for your blog posts.
Pinterest is HOT right now, and the better your images (no matter where you publish them!) the more likely they are to get pinned and shared.
Pinterest Easy Title Templates make it super simple with drag & drop image creation. And you don't even need fancy image editing software. You can use the free web-based program at Pixlr.com!
I used these templates to create the text over the waterfall photo in the Facebook update at the top of this post. I also used them to create a fun update on my low carb blog, which you can see here.
You can get the entire package of image templates - with more than 40 different styles in 200+ colors - for only $15. That's a steal.
Happy World Gratitude Day!

Without you, I'd be talking to myself.
I'm grateful for you today, and every day of the year!
