Monday Motivation: Read This Cool Stuff V

(As previously seen on the HelaWrite blog.)

Happy Monday, readers! To start off a new week, here are three great articles to get you motivated. Enjoy!

1. Clicks on Pinterest Generate 4X More Revenue Than Twitter [Infographic] by Pamela Vaughn at HubSpot

There’s not a whole lot to read here, which is a good thing. Most of the post includes an infographic that shows just how Pinterest is able to live up to the claim in the title of the blog post. I’ve personally been investigating the power of Pinterest this year and use my account for more than building my never-to-be-bought-dream-wardrobe. (Though, I might need an intervention…)

2. What Works For Me On Twitter by Rochelle Moulton

This was a great find. I can’t remember the exact events that led me to this post, but the destination was gold. Moulton doesn’t divulge every Twitter secret, but she certainly gives some great tips that can help any Twitter novice build their following in no time.

3. 4 Ways to Boost Your Social Media Marketing for Less than $1 Per Day by Jason Parks on JeffBullas.com

Before I read this, I was extremely skeptical of spending ANY money to boost tweets on Twitter and posts on Facebook. But the way the article breaks it up into small amounts of change–well, now I’m thinking I may try it out this year to see what happens. The other platforms mentioned–YouTube and Instagram–are not my main methods of marketing myself as an author and/or business person. But, if that’s “your thing,” the article provides some great tips.

Monday Motivation: Read This Cool Stuff II

(As previously seen on the HelaWrite blog.)

It’s Monday! I have 3 great articles to share with you all. They’re all from HubSpot today and focus on marketing, blogging, and LinkedIn groups–all great stuff.

So grab a coffee, sit back, and take some time to read these articles and become motivated for another work week.

Yummy coffee to start the day off right.

1. 10 Phenomenal Blogs in Totally Boring Industries by Ginny Soskey at HubSpot

Summary: The title pretty much says it all. 10 awesome blogs that are doing something right, despite their businesses’ reputation for being “boring.” A great read.

2. A Practical Guide to Planning a Successful Inbound Marketing Campaign by Meghan Keaney Anderson at HubSpot

Summary: Again, the title tells what this post is about. I’ve been using the term “Inbound Marketing” lately, so if you still don’t know what that means, then definitely take a look at this post. It lays everything out in simple terms.

3. 20 LinkedIn Groups Every Marketer Should Join by Brittany Leaning at HubSpot

Summary: Obviously, this post shows you great groups to join on LinkedIn. But don’t let the “Marketer” part deter you from reading this article. EVERY business owner and entrepreneur is a marketer in her or his own right. Marketing is for everyone, and it doesn’t hurt to join a group of experts who can share nuggets of wisdom with you–for free. I get more out of groups like these than any marketing class I ever took in college.

I hope you enjoy these articles and feel motivated to tackle some business this week. Here’s a great quote to leave you with some inspiration:
