How to Write Interesting Content for a “Boring” Topic - The secret to making so-called boring source material interesting is not necessarily about conducting market research, writing style, creating expensive infographics, or the having the right connections. The essence of “interestingness” stems from one basic content commandment: Always ask the right questions. Pratik Dholakiya demonstrates how to target the questions your audience wants to know about.

Why Do People Share Content? – It’s important for anyone involved in digital marketing to understand what will motivate someone to share your content and when they are most inclined to do so you can develop the next step in your strategy. Most marketers have a good grasp of  Extrinsic Motivators (price, features, benefits) but struggle with the Intrinsic Motivators (how does the product align to a person’s feelings or goals). Chris Dyson explains how to align your content with your consumer’s primary emotional motivations.

11 Awesome Quotes by Seth Godin - Seth Godin is one of the top writers, entrepreneurs and marketers out there. This post collects 11 of his most inspirational quotes. Highlights include “You can either fit in or stand out. Not both” and “Life is a buzzer box. Poke it.”
