As a seasoned content creator, Jen Miller, owner of NeedSomeoneToBlog.com, shares the secrets to building community and client engagement on your website. Detailing the NeedSomeoneToBlog.com six-step "be seen" system, Jen encourages content awareness and helps readers create content that:
A one-stop source for the basics on blogging and website content creation, The Book on Content: Using Words to Attract Clients, teaches exactly that!
This is a short audio book, which is not a bad thing in itself. There are, however, some key problems with this title:
- This is not a book about content, it is a book about blogging
- It feels like an advertorial for the author's company and her services
- The information is very basic and could be helpful for a business who is just getting started with blogging
- There are many instances like this one: the author talks about the importance of storytelling yet there are no stories in her book.
This book should have been called "Blogging essentials for businesses" that would earn it another star maybe.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Given that not all authors make good narrators, there is a risk to trying to be one, if you don't have the skills. This is the case with this author, so it immediately distracted from the listening experience. There were 18 segments to this audio book and, from segment 15 inclusive, to the end, it had nothing to do with the title of the book and was only about the author and her acknowledgements. I would have preferred more 'content'. Having said that, in my view the content was basic. I kept hoping it would get better, it didn't, so a poor purchase as far as I am concerned.
What could Jen Miller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Chosen a professional narrator. Don't use almost a quarter of the book talking about 'self'.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jen Miller’s performances?
No, definitely not.
