Getting attention... controversially?
Begging for it Tweeting the living daylights out of an "influencer"  Paying for it I guess attention is a lot like sex, nobody wants to pay for it, in fact they'll do anything they possibly can to avoid paying for it, so instead of it costing just cash (which is replaceable) it now costs time, which is not. Do I have your attention?  Grabbing your reader's attention within seconds of them seeing your content is crucial. You'll lose your reader if...

As parents, something happening to our children is the worst thing imaginable. In fact we'd rather not imagine. But if something did (god forbid) did happen, we'd want to know the whats and the whys. The not knowing would be pure hell.

 Now imagine be blocked at every avenue when you tried to uncover the truth about your daughter's death.  The James family have had 20 years of not knowing, and they'd like all the new evidence re-examined. http://birdsontheblog.co.uk/cheryl-james-the-deepcut-truth/

The story is just as shocking now as it was 20 years ago. If you have a tweet or a plus, it would be appreciated. We can say we won't go away or shut up until the new evidence and a new inquest is heard.

Isn't it about time the truth was told about Cheryl James & The Deepcut Tragedy where 4 people lost their lives.

I've been watching this case, I know the family. I used to work with Cheryl's Dad. My heart has been breaking for them for almost 20 years and still they don't know what happened. Awful :(

I get where you are coming from, families have very complex power-plays that come into action that "correct" or "cover-up" these scandals. You have the people that say "he was always all right to me..." with the implication that an accuser is making it up. Then you have the ones that cover it up as the person is their beloved, and finally the ones that completely bury their heads in the sand. And they're all impossible to deal with
How many secrets and lies are there in families, how deep and long is the silence?

Are you the source? My later mother in law was, a lot like family matriarchs are. When you are younger you tend to ridicule what you can't see, and someone who holds information isn't valued the same as someone who holds say a job or leadership position. However, these people are the pioneers of expertise and developing it. They were the first and original content curators, they were and are the source.

Are you looking to get more exposure for you and your business?
One way to have a larger impact with your business is to ramp up your exposure. Exposure means that more people (potential customers and advocates) start to get to know you as an expert. Yesterday I was talking in a group on a similar topic and one of the members was talking about quitting as he'd not gained expert status fast enough. I suggested he thought back to when his kids were young, and learning to walk... They fell down, they pulled them...

Story

Content marketing UK
Introduction
The day job, if you see us helping companies and individuals out on Twitter and Facebook with their  queries, well that would be me. One person does that? Yes, do you have any idea how many people need questions answering? If you want to do this in a way that generates leads, then perhaps we should have a chat?

I train entrepreneurs and small business owners how to get a firm grip on content marketing and how to make it work for them. From blog posts to infographics... my company Sarkemedia.com covers it all.

Queen of Blgging & Content Marketing
What I am most famous for though is Birds on the Blog. Creating and maintaining multi-author blogs is not an easy thing to do. It's been likened to herding cats! Featured in the Forbes top 100 websites for women, for the three years running, the only British entry :). I often speak at events about starting and maintaining an internationally popular blog. Many talk the talk, but few walk the walk. Why, because it's easy to talk and not actually do anything. I'm not like that, and I have the websites to prove it.

Author and co-author
As a content marketer, I write a lot, so that means I have a few books under my belt too :). It also means I get invited to write with other social media experts. It's a privilege to be asked, and a great joy when we hit the bookshelves and start marketing :)

Content Marketing Communities

I've a great little community to share blog tips in - come and join us.

    I share a lot of advice around blogging and social media. It's experiential advice, and not generic fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-and-hope-it-works. I'm a socially introverted, that means my inability to make small talk comes across as straight talking. I see the cloud and the silver lining.

This shop is delightful. Rosa stocks all the designer brands and she knows what looks good on you. Since Rosanne has a keen eye, she fits the right type of bra within minutes. She's also honest and tells you if a bra isn't going to look good or improve your shape at all. The chaise longue and the glass of wine, make underwear shopping a pleasurable experience It's hard to leave the shop not feeling confident and ten feet tall!

I love the clothes at Little Sunflowers. I recently purchased some gorgeous T shirts for my 6 month old grandson, and matching T shirts for my 8 and 9 year old daughters - not only do they all look great, the t shirts are fantastic quality. I highly recommend Little Sunflowers not only for the quality of their clothes but the range. They have a fantastic choice and I spend far more time than I'd like browsing all their gorgeous clothes :)
