For those of you who can’t get enough educational links throughout the week, make sure you follow the Synthesis Twitter list here. That list and the @Copyblogger account are the main places I curate the Friday links from every week.
And now, onto this week’s links …
- How Do You Tell a Persuasive Story Over Time?
The title of this post is actually “48 Elements of Persuasive Written Content” but @Copyblogger tweeted it out with the description about telling a persuasive story over time, which I frankly thought was the more persuasive of the two in terms of getting me to click. Excellent tips that anyone creating content will find useful.

Brian Gardner provides a detailed, easy-to-follow and implement tutorial showing you how to provide readers with an easy way to sign up for your email list at the end of your posts.
- How To Make Your Site The Destination For Your Market
This is an outstanding post by Chris Garrett about how companies can use their website and blog to stand out above their peers. It’s not easy though, and he lays out six areas that must be focused on to truly stand out in a market.
- A Beginner’s Guide to Facebook Insights
Everyone is uber-concerned with having the Facebook Like button on their website, and getting likes on their Facebook page, and Facebook, Facebook, Facebook. But do you know how to assess the impact you and your content are having on Facebook? This post shows you how to use the Facebook Insights section, which does provide some useful data for decision-making.
- Google Webmaster Tools – What, Why, and How
This is a very simplistic breakdown of what Google Webmaster Tools is and how to set it up. And you know what? Enough people have not done this that simplistic should be useful for some of you. Make sure you do this so Google can give you useful information for free.
Have a great weekend everyone. If you have link suggestions you’d like me to consider for next week’s edition, email me:
