If you are a small business and like to blog, statistics have shown that readers are far more likely to notice your blog if you have an image with it. However it is not easy for some businesses to use images if they don’t have a product but provide a service. I found an article on Inc.com in which a group of people can help each other in solving problems.
I recently chaired a meeting of the CAP Business and as a group we did some brain writing. Brain writing I hear you say in puzzlement! The theory goes that if you have a group of people in a room only a small percentage of those people will speak, there are always the quiet contemplators, the shy that think that they have nothing of interest to say. Brain writing helps everyone to express his or her ideas.
How does it work? Everyone is supplied with small pieces of paper; anything will do, small index cards, Stickies etc. In our case we were trying to get ideas of images that people could use with their blogs. I went round the table one member at a time and everyone in the room had to write down one object that they would associate with that type of business, at the end of the activity each member goes away with a pile of ideas from all of their colleagues.
A simple but effective way to help each other solve problems. Why not give it a try?
