Its been a while since I’ve published any Sunday Shares but I’m back today with three articles which I found really useful and that I think you’ll learn something from.
In this week’s edition, you’ll learn why it’s possible to know nothing about a topic and still be able to become an authority online.
You’ll also find useful these 26 writing exercises to improve your writing and I’m also including a post from myself to help you get into video marketing on YouTube.
Read through these posts and hopefully you’ll take something away that you can implement into your online business.
A lot of people ask this question when they start out building an online business especially if they choose a niche that they’re not really an expert on.
Even if it’s something they’re passionate about, there are probably already dozens of experts already doing well online for the topic.
Kyle, over at Wealthy Affiliate, answers this question and the answer is a definite yes. You can become an authority online for whatever niche you decide to build your business around.
One example he gave was that of electric cars. Almost anyone who has heard of electric cars will think of Tesla which is a company by Elon Musk.
Musk was an online programmer who found and sold PayPal but he’s more known for Tesla, the electric car company. At one point, you could bet that Musk didn’t know one thing about electric cars but now he’s the authority on the subject.
With persistence and a willingness to learn everything you need to know about your niche, anyone can become an authority on any topic online.
How do you become better at anything?
You practice, practice and practice some more.
This applies to writing and this post over at Smart Blogger, a blog that I read regularly, gives you 26 exercises that will improve your writing drastically.
I love these writing exercises because you can decide what you want out of your writing and pick a writing exercise to practice everyday.
The exercises are broken down into 6 categories and there are several types of exercises you can choose from within each category.
There are writing exercises on:
- being a fearless writer
- getting your writing into perfect shape
- making your writing hilarious
- being a better storyteller
- being a more persuasive writer
- improving your scene-painting skills
An example of a writing exercise to become a fearless writer is to write a letter to each of your friends to tell them why they suck.
Doing these writing exercises on a regular basis should level up your writing to make it more hilarious, persuasive and just overall more engaging.
Check out the writing exercises from Mel Wicks at Smart Blogger.
This is an article that I wrote this week that I think is very helpful for anyone who wants to learn YouTube video marketing.
I wrote this article because I also need to learn YouTube video marketing and I was looking for resources that can help me do just that.
I researched some channels where the users teach various tips on how to grow and make money from YouTube channels and found these 7 great channels.
As a result, I’ve learned a lot in the past week about getting started on YouTube and I think it should help anyone who also needs to get started as well.
Check out the article and also check out the 7 channels I mention as well.
That’s it for this week. I hope that you’ll find these shares useful and I’ll have some more helpful articles for you to read next Sunday.
