Tweet Times Two – The Latest Twitter Update

Perhaps you’ve heard the news about Twitter? While people on Twitter have always had a lot to say, they’ve been curtailed to a 140 character limit. That is, until now. That’s right!  Twitter is doubling its character count to a whooping 280 characters. Now, keep in mind, not everyone has access to the increased character count yet.  Testing has begun on a small number of accounts.  The exact amount is unknown at this time but it is anticipated that it will be widely released shortly after testing is completed.  This...

Las Vegas, Last Days of Summer, and Lasting Impressions

This is not the blog I thought I would be writing today. Sean and I just finished the last of our summer sabbatical and October marked the beginning of buckling down for the holiday season. I was planning on writing a fun, pithy, and somewhat silly post about what we’ve been up to over these last few weeks, but that just doesn’t seem appropriate anymore. I was planning on sharing my excitement for the holidays, launching a new product for the month, and bolstering sales for the latest issue of the Handmade Seller magazine.  But. ...

Halloween Keywords for Super SEO

It might still be September, but that doesn’t mean you can get away with ignoring the next big holiday for shoppers.

Rather than get scared staring down various keyword analyzers, I’ve put together a treat of a list of words for you. As always, my keyword lists are meant to offer you inspiration and guidance. Please evaluate each of these keywords and only include them in your listings if...

To Be An American

To Be An American

I’ve tried to start this blog post at least three different times. I stare at the blank screen, type a few words, and then hit the back button until there is nothing but empty space. Normally, I’m not at a loss for words. After all, it is my job to find the words that others are struggling to identify. Today marks the sixteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the United States and I still don’t quite know how to address them. I remember exactly where I was when the first plane hit, I remember watching everyone around me...

Postal Service Disruptions

With much of the country (the United States) facing various natural disasters, the United States Postal Service has updated their website to reflect service disruptions. Our country is in the unique position to be facing several major catastrophes at once, and it is my goal to offer support and information to handmade sellers everywhere. Over the next few days, I will be covering Hurricane Irma and the other issues to the best of my abilities, and offering assistance to sellers affected. On September 6th, the USPS posted the following link to...

Thanksgiving SEO:  Free Keyword List

It’s Labor Day weekend so that means there is only one thing to talk about: Thanksgiving! That’s right, I’m going to be talking turkey on today’s installation of The Write Assistant blog. For each holiday, I try to publish a general list of keywords to help my followers out. These keywords are based on top trending phrases for the season and should be used only if they are applicable to your products. If you would like a little more personal help for your keywords, I do offer title and tag packages starting as low as...

Talking Through Tragedy:  Customer Service During Disasters

We have all been impacted by the horrific scenes of Hurricane Harvey over the last few days.  There are many worthy charities that are working hard to directly improve the situations of those affected by the storm on the ground.  While I have been out on vacation, when I came home I had multiple requests in my inbox asking for help.  They weren’t asking for money or donations, but rather asking for a small sliver of kindness.  These people were small business owners facing unimaginable difficulties as they weathered the storm and they...

Vacation Reminder

Vacation Reminder

Happy Saturday! I know things have been a little quiet lately in The Write Assistant universe, but that’s because we’ve been enjoying the last of our summer. I hope you’ve found a way to squeeze in some “you time”.  Over the next several days, I’m going to get even quieter because Sean and I are primitive camping in the Adirondacks until Wednesday August 30th. This means that I will be without a cell phone, no internet, and absolutely no Twitter! It will be, in a word, glorious. All kidding aside, I wanted...

The Art of Entrepreneurship

I thought it would be nice to share a TedTalk that focuses on the art of entrepreneurship. This wonderful twenty minute discussion was posted in 2012 but still holds quite a lot of relevance for my followers today.  The caption under the video details Julie Meyer and her credentials so make sure to check it out and then push play:...

Free Keyword List:  2017 Back To School Season

Chances are, if you have children you are gearing up for the Back to School season!  If you’re a handmade seller, that means you too are paying attention to things like apples, pens, and pencils.  This season marks the beginning of the pre-holiday rush so I highly recommend you start incorporating keywords targeting these customers if you haven’t already.  It’s been awhile since I published my last complimentary keyword list, so I figured there was no time like the present.  If you are really struggling with your keyword...
