Keeping Your Audience (and Yourself) Engaged

copyblogger weekly

Hey there — welcome back to the Copyblogger Weekly!

This week we’re talking entertainment. Specifically, how you can keep your audience engaged and, just as importantly, keep yourself interested and fresh.

Because if you’re bored … you’re boring. And that’s no fun for anyone.

On Tuesday, Sean D’Souza shared three of his favorite techniques for hooking (and keeping) your audience’s attention.

And yesterday, our Editor-in-Chief Stefanie Flaxman offered 16 ways to squeeze interesting content out of seemingly limited material. (That one goes well with my podcast this week on “quick wins” for content marketers.)

Over on The Digital Entrepreneur podcast, Jerod Morris chatted with Sarah Morgan about how she keeps the excitement going in her business. But the real question is:

Is her business more entertaining than her previous career as a circus aerialist?

She digs into some of the funny things about the life of a digital entrepreneur, like how angry some commenters get when she talks about taking a nap during the day.

Jealousy is a terrible thing.

At the same time, she doesn’t sugarcoat the hard work involved in running a business … or the failures that teach us along the way.

Hope you enjoy this week’s content, and I’ll catch you next week!
