4 Reasons Your Stuff Should Be In The Cloud

Cloud services are, first and foremost, an easy way to access your stuff from any device. But, for media professionals and die-hard Twitter users, there’s an added bonus: increased productivity.

“I no longer have to ask myself, ‘Which computer did I create that on?’ or ‘Where is that file?’ I can travel light when needed and access my information from any device,” said Internet marketing coach and author Laura Waage in mediabistro.com’s latest feature.

There’s nothing more hated than a pushy salesman on Twitter. So avoid going overboard trying to “sell” your online story to garner engagement. Instead, says Will Scott, CEO of Search Influence, hone in on the concepts your stories stand for.

“People won’t typically ‘like’ your product. They’re going to like ideas, emotions and causes for which your product may stand,” said Scott.

Sara Wilson, a senior editor for The Huffington Post, suggests skipping the headline altogether when constructing a related tweet. “Make it personal. Tweet a question, a joke, a hint of what’s to come,” she said. “Make it conversational; it should not seem like it’s coming from a bot.”
