The fab +Kevin Duncan was a special guest on the podcast this week. He tells you (in his awesome radio voice) why the power of storytelling is so important in connecting to your audience via content. 
9 Story Themes That Can Make Your Business Content Captivating

The amazing +Amy Harrison invited me to be on her #HitPublish podcast -- one of the many excellent podcasts over at +Copyblogger's Rainmaker.fm.

The theme? Stories and how online marketers can use them to captivate readers.

It was a great honor to be featured alongside +Joe Pulizzi and +Pamela Wilson, and I'd be remiss if I didn't tag +Jon Morrow, +Brian Clark, and +Syed Balkhi since I gave them shout outs.

Here's my favorite quote from the segment:

"It doesn't matter how helpful or valuable your information may be. If you can't present it in an enticing way, people aren't going to care about it. You might as well be reading them the cleaning instructions for a microwave oven."

A detailed (and useful post) from +Craig McBreen  not only about why you need to blog, but also how to get started
"Your budding startup needs to start blogging, but there’s a problem …

Fear.

Yep, many of the companies I work with have a fear of marketing and it relates to cash. This is because traditional marketing is expensive.

You may have hired someone to help with web design, copywriting, and overall branding, but paying a professional to build (and run) a long-term campaign? You don’t want to make that investment, do you?

I get it, traditional marketing is pricey and if it’s done poorly you might as well be flushing those greenbacks down the commode.

So, what is the answer? Read today's post and let me know what you think…
