Jump in our chat to participate weekly at 11 am EST on Thursdays =>MyBlogGuest Twitter chat

This is our last chat of April, so we’ll change a format a bit. We won’t have the usual PUSH Thursday where we would discuss some good examples of guest articles. We won’t put our members in the spotlight for the time being.

Instead, we’ll make it an educational edition where we will share very BEST content marketing tips of the month.

So let’s get started:

Two on Creating GREAT Content

Two On Promoting Your Content

Any time you mention someone, interview someone, include a link to someone’s article, etc., email that person to let them know you’ve done so.
