Editorial Format For Text And Video Posts

It’s very important for all ambassador bloggers to stick to one editorial outlay and structure. Imagine flipping through the pages of your favorite magazine, only to find different fonts styles and colors on each page, different size headlines and sub headlines, some articles start with images at the top, others at the bottom, etc.

Clearly it turns into a slightly organised mess. So create a strong brand (for us) and train our readers to action on links, sharing and your about section (for you), we all need to be on the same page.

Further more, the outline below is structured in the best format to attract the most visitors and get the best results from your content.

This format won’t be set in stone!

Here is our current editorial structure and outlay which will adjust as we move forward and optimise our progress.

You will also find a brief summary of this in the checklist below each post.

Headlines (aka Post Title)

Headlines

It’s a known fact amongst copywriters that headlines are the most important part of your content. Without grabbing attention, your post simply won’t get read.

(sidenote: when linking to any other post within your post, the above structure is the way to do it: ‘SEE ALSO’ in all caps and everything in bold with the link opening in a new window)

Keywords: Add your primary targeted keyword into the title, unless it sounds completely awkward. ALWAYS serve the reader first, not the search engines.

Style: Start Each Word With A Capitol Letter Even If It’s A Connecting Word Like And A An It Etc.

Permalinks

Permalinks

Not much to do here, but do try and shorten this to only a few primary words. E.g. In this post I simply shortened it to editorial-format so that the entire link is http://members.thatmlmbeat.com/editorial-format/ instead of http://members.thatmlmbeat.com/editorial-format-for-text-and-video-posts

Images

Add Media

Images play an important part in content creation and is an requirement for every post unless a video is being featured, then your post will only need a featured image (located at the bottom right sidebar, below tags). You can also use the main image within the post as a featured image.

Featured Image

But remember, ALWAYS have an featured image and ALWAYS have an image unless there’s a video included in the post.

 

Try and go for big images, but not exceeded about 550pixels in width. As long as it doesn’t exceed the width of the posting area. The best images are originals. If you can get creative with your smartphone, then this is the way to go.

Naming: Name your images correctly When you do this properly, all your images get ranked in Google Images. E.g. instead of screenshot123.jpg do my_primary_keyword.jpg

 

  Links

Image Linking: Link your image to nothing by selecting the ‘None’ option.

General Linking: Always set links to open up in a new window.

Categories: Select at least 1 maximum 2 categories for your news post.

Theme SEO Settings

Theme SEO Settings

Only complete the 3 illustrated in this picture:

Custom Document Title: The easiest way to do this is to simply move your primary keyword to the front of the title, or insert your primary keyword here if it wasn’t appropriate in your original title.

e.g. Standard Title: 7 bizarre ways to extend your laptops battery life (primary keyword: laptop battery life)

Custom Document Title: Laptop Battery Life: 7 Bizarre ways to extend yours

Maybe sounds a bit strange, but I’m sure you get the idea 🙂

Custom Post/Page Meta Description: This is a brief curiosity driven teaser what your post is about. It’s not about giving away the answer, but maybe positioning the answer or primary benefit of the with a question to entice readers to want to read more.

The ideal length for this is +/- 160 characters, as that is how much gets displayed within the search engine results.

IMPORTANT: When you have completed this, copy and paste this exact description into the ‘excerpt’ section further down below.

The excerpt is what will get displayed on the homepage of your blog.

Custom Post/Page Meta Keywords, comma separated: It’s more important to focus on relevance than keywords. With all the latest penguin and panda updates from Google, their has been plenty of penalties for focusing on the same keywords throughout a site.

So there will be no need to add your company name and your name on every single post.

Try go for 2 – 4 targeted keywords and focus on the longtail. Longtail keywords are normally 3 – 5 word phrases.

The easiest way to find these is to type your company name or product in question into Google and see what comes up in the search results.

We will do an in-depth training on keywords in a future video.

IMPORTANT: You can copy and paste these into the ‘Tags’ section positioned below the ‘Publish’ area within the right hand sidebar.

That’s it!

6 Essential Oil Blends to Enhance Personal Development and Business Success

abundance young living essential oils
Where else but Young Living Essential Oils can you take a hands on approach to your personal development using the best essential oils while you grow?

Young Living has several essential oil blends that can be very powerful when using them to enhance personal development. Not only are they wonderfully mood uplifting but they increase the effectiveness of your efforts.

When you have a good emotional energy, you are in a better position to have the law of attraction working in you life and your network marketing business.

Essential Oil Blends To Use With Personal Development

Acceptance – Acceptance oil helps you accept where you are right now whatever situation you are in. You must accept who you are before you can step forward into change. Accepting things as they are make the law of attraction work in your life. When you feel good about where you are, you have a better energy which attracts more abundance.

Believe – One really important reason to work on personal development is to build belief in yourself, your network marketing company and the network marketing profession in general. Using Believe oil as you are reading books and listening to audios can help raise the intensity of your belief.

Magnify Your Purpose – This is a wonderful oil blend to help focus on your WHY. Knowing and focusing on your WHY is crucial to your success. You need to have a strong WHY that really moves you to want to do the things necessary to be successful. Using Magnify Your Purpose and reflecting on why you want to build a successful business before you do any personal development can magnify your efforts.

Valor – This oil is for courage and confidence. Let’s face it. Changing can be scary. Sometimes we don’t even realize we are scared. I have had many distributors tell me they are not scared but those very people are major procrastinators in their business. Procrastination is evidence that there is something in the subconscious that you fear.
Valor is the oil to use before any marketing, followup phone calls, conducting business meetings, making videos and audios, talking to prospects, etc. Valor helps you feel confidence when you are doing business tasks.

Abundance – This is another oil I use everyday. It’s the first oil I put on when I get in my office. This oil puts your body in an energy that attracts abundance. It is important to consider the law of attraction in your daily life and business. I wear Abundance oil whenever I go anywhere I might find prospects. That means EVERYWHERE! It smells wonderful and people ask about the wonderful smell. Opening to talk about Young Living Essential Oils.

Transformation – This oil empowers and upholds changes you want to make in your belief system. By replacing negative beliefs with revitalizing new thought patterns, a transformation in behavior is possible. As you are doing personal development, you will be transforming your life and business. You will become stronger, more professional, more successful and surely happier.

These are just 6 of the emotion oil blends from Young Living. We will discuss more in a future post.
