How To Communicate In An Information Economy And Be Heard

How To Communicate In An Information Economy And Be Heard

  1. People are rarely looking for base information.
  2. Information doesn’t rise above the noise online.
    What people come to an expert for is knowledge.
  3. Understand the gap that exists. Fill the gap between information and knowledge.
  4. Take the understanding of a concept and help them.
  5. Structure your content to answer questions. The questions must be written throughout the content. Computers are reading your copy.
  6. Title for searchability: Sexy headlines only get you so far.
  7. Your content must be findable.
