Brian's first post for Boost Blog Traffic is a monster. Learn how to increase your content's reach by enlisting the help of the top experts in your field.
 
Just published on Boost Blog Traffic, The Ultimate Guide to Creating an Expert Roundup that Gets 1000s of Social Shares.

Some tips include:
1) How to Pick the Right Topic & Question - Forums, LinkedIn Comments and your own blog audience can be great places to find compelling questions that might go viral.
2) How to Word Your Question so that it is unique - Taking a negative slant on a question or leveraging a time sensitive topic are some ways to stand out.
3) Who to Invite to Participate - Asides from the obvious influencers, adding rising stars & expanding to people outside your niche can greatly increase your reach & level up the content quality.

Featuring quotes from bloggers that successfully broke 1000 social shares on their roundups, including +Kristi Hines , +Ian Cleary , +Ashley Faulkes , +Adam Connell , +Steve Webb , +Andy Crestodina and +Peg Fitzpatrick .

Sick of people telling you to write "epic" content but neglecting to tell you how? This post from +Sonia Thompson cuts through the crap and reveals not only the characteristics of content your readers go nuts over, but also what you need to do to create it.
Everyone's talking about the importance of creating "epic" content. But how do you actually do it? This post has the answers you need.

Hashtags, which make it easier to find, share and curate content on social platforms, can be an invaluable tool in your marketing arsenal.

Great article, I like the Morrow opening :) . My first boss used to write very short emails, like 1 or 2 lines max, and he managed to convey a very clear message in each email. This taught me how to write emails very well.

Chrome Alone? - Using a "Chromebox" as my primary PC
Since I spend most of my time inside the various Google apps I've taken the plunge and bought a Chrome OS device. Not a Chromebook but a Chromebox - a small desktop. Got it while I was in the US for the equivalent of about £100. It boots in just a few seconds and it's like having a computer that only runs one app - the Chrome browser. So far - I'm impressed! #chromeos   #chrome

Story
Tagline
Writer, editor and blogging aficionado.
Introduction
I'm an online writer and editor living in London, working closely with Jon Morrow, one of the most popular and respected writers on the web.

As Managing Editor of BoostBlogTraffic.com I work with some of the best writers on the web to turn killer ideas into posts that readers love.

As assistant instructor on the Guest Blogging Apprenticeship Program I help students get published on some of the world's most popular blogs.

I'm also the author of:
Away from the laptop I'm dangerously addicted to imported Scandinavian TV drama. By rights I should speak fluent Danish by now.
Bragging rights
I co-created popular online comedy series Henry 8.0 for the BBC starring Brian Blessed. I'm a keen public speaker and ex-president of Bloomsbury Speakers public speaking club.

We hired Harmit for our London-based wedding at the end of October. We found him online and liked his photography so I gave him a call. He was helpful and friendly on the phone and that gave me the confidence to book him on good faith. His communication before the big day was great and he prompted us for a few things that would make it easier to get the shots we wanted on the day. On the day itself he was very self-reliant which was great because there was so much going on that we weren't particularly organised about setting up shots, etc. We paid his "all you can eat" rate which meant he started around 9am with the bridal preparations and didn't leave until a good 12 hours later, though he was willing to stay until "lights out". He was also very personable with all the guests and a number of people commented that he seemed like a really nice guy. If you're looking for someone who'll fit in well and get on with the job with minimum fuss I'd definitely recommend him. The photos were great too and available for us to view within a few days. Thanks Harmit!
