Cameron, thank you for breaking this down for us. I like this this tip: "Appeal to your audience’s key motivation – to connect with each other (it’s not just with your brand)."

Appealing to your audience's key motivation is very important and this occurs when you establish a relationship with your audience. You have to interact with them to find out what their motivation is. Great post!

List posts are great especially if your list post is niche specific. A majority of my popular posts are list posts. I compiled lists of blogs, hip-hop artists, marketing masterminds and more. Thank you for this informative post.

Shanna I love this post because storytelling is definitely needed. The key with storytelling is being genuine. I like to tweet in clusters because of the storytelling potential. Present content that aligns with your brand identity statement. Create content that gives you the potential to show expertise within your niche. Humans identify with people, they also identify with emotions. More brands should take this approach.

I actually use Blogger to write blog posts. I also use Catch Notes when I am mobile blogging (I even utilize code when I am mobile blogging and I email the text to my account). I haven't tried Scrivener yet. I think I will check it out. Thank you for sharing this information.

@RobBiesenbach How about people sending auto DMs to connect on Facebook. What do you think of this practice?

@Unmana I agree with your statement. I can't stand auto-DMs. I also can't stand those, "someone is making up information about you...etc etc". It is definitely a virus haha.

Hello @manamica,

I really enjoyed this article and this quote stood out. "Twitter discourages posting only updates with links and no personal updates." I see a lot of influential marketers that only post links. There is no interaction. 

For awhile I followed this routine and I noticed that it was not working. So I decided to be more personable and interactive. I am glad that I made that decision. I was spamming my followers and I didn't even know it. 

Thank you for crafting this post and exposing the limitations of automation.

@Erin F. Erin you are correct, neglecting comments shows that the blogger does not value interaction (or that person's time). If a blogger does not want to respond to comments then they should turn the comments off. What do you think?

Responding to comments like you suggested is an integral part of building a community. Responding to comments can also inspire new blog posts and establish expertise.

This is my first time here. Thank you Jayme for what you do.

So many ideas. I love the fact that you used a napkin to write down these ideas haha. 

I have one addition. For Number 11 I thought it would be awesome to utilize SoundCloud for your Podcast. Or maybe even uStream. Have you looked into answering fan questions and broadcasting via Google Hangouts?

Thank you @ginidietrich for an excellent article. Guest Posting is fun. I think I will take the whole month off and focus on guest posts.

@bradmarley  I think long form content works if you break up the post into multiple posts. This approach builds anticipation. What do you think about this approach Brad?

@ginidietrich you have sold me on @livefyre. Great commenting system (I use Disqus and I see the community building impact right away). 

Love this advice, "I stand firmly on the side you should answer comments, particularly if your goal is to build community." Answering comments shows that you value people's time and energy. Answering comments also extends the conversation and establishes expertise. 

I am blown away by the level of interaction on Spin Sucks. Thank you for sharing the "Secret Sauce".

This is a great post. People relate to stories. Stories have been with us since the beginning of time. The key to successful stories is structure and leaving the audience wanting more. 

This quote really stood out. "A story is a character in pursuit of a goal in the face of a challenge or obstacle. How that character resolves that challenge is what keeps us interested."

Homie I applaud this move...I did the same thing and recently shut down the Popular #RapChat series because I felt overwhelmed. 

I also felt like artists were hounding me for interviews and reviews and honestly I cover what I find interesting. Continue to drop great content. You have me as a reader.

Great article...sometimes people try to hard to create epic content as opposed to just writing. I usually base my headlines on the body of the article.
