How To Tap Into The Power Of Story To Get Your Ecourse Participants Better Results

elearning tips and tricks

There’s a reason that the entertainment industry is a billion dollar business: we’re endlessly fascinated by stories.

We love a good storyline in a movie, a book, or a video game… even around a campfire.

So the question is this: why would an online course be any different?

For many years now, we’ve been following the academic way of creating courses… but let’s check:

If someone where to ask your 7 year old self if you’d rather “do your homework” or “listen to a story”, you’d likely opt for the story.

Although I’m often guilty of delivering my courses in a more academic way myself, I’m getting more and more excited about the new ways we’re pioneering to educate, inspire, and enlighten… beyond sharing mere facts.

With that end in mind, here are 3 elearning tips and tricks you can use incorporate story into your next online course: Click To Continue

5 Steps to Boosting Your Blog Traffic with Pinterest

how to boost your blog traffic with pinterest

This is a contribution by Pinterest Powerhouse Sarah Morgan.

Question…are you using Pinterest to share other people’s blog posts…or are you using it to skyrocket your own?

A few years ago, I had boards and boards FILLED with recipe posts and makeup tutorials and design inspiration. And even though I was blogging almost every day, it was rare that I would take the time to pin my own content. And even rarer that I’d see any traffic as a result.

But over the past two years, Pinterest has become the #1 referrer to my site. Absolutely obliterating Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Pinterest now brings in over 95% of my traffic from social media and 75% of my overall traffic.

It took some experimenting, and strategizing, and lots and LOTS of pinning, but I’ve finally nailed down exactly how to set up my profile, how to design my blog posts, and what to pin to get a serious boost in blog traffic.

And since Pinterest is such a monumental marketing tool for my blog + business, today I want to share 5 steps to get your Pinterest game going too! Click To Continue
