How to Write Laconic Articles ? – 25%

What do you mean by “laconic” articles ? Laconic means short and concise. They have the vital information and they are short. Writing these kinds of articles are moderately difficult. You can make your own articles laconic by examining and editing them after some time (say for like 2 days.) Editing after some time allows you to cross examine your article and make some good changes. Reading and editing your article from a different viewpoint is another way you can make your articles laconic (Trim out the unnecessary). You should write articles in a way that they will create a spark in the reader’s brain. Try to trim articles in a way that your readers will comment. You should also be careful when writing your article – Off topic extend. Be sure not to write off topic articles. Stay focused on your topic.

You can also extend articles you have written. You can also extend other blogger’s topic. These two ways allows you to form new and new posts. Also remember that it is the Quality that matters, not the qauntity.

How does this relate to Creativity ?

I agree that creativity allows you to make new and new ideas. I advise you to use your creativity as much as you can. Use your own Brain. Create a storm in your own brain to come up with new and new ideas. Remember Creativity acoounts for 25% of your blogging success.

You may even add your life experience to your tweets. You can apply the same idea to your facebook fan page. Instead of posting “normal” updates, you can post it differently. Changing Your titles a bit when posting to Social Media is also a good idea. Essential Part is “Use Your Brain in Social Media”.

Your followers expect something from you. When you go beyond their expectation, they will recommend you, they will promote you. The important part about Becoming a Social Media King is uniqueness. Being Unique = More Traffic.

How Much Time Should I Invest ?
