If eight out of ten people love chocolate, what can we conclude? That’s easy, two people out of ten didn’t hear the question!
When it comes to pleasing others on Valentines Day, a box of chocolates is a no brainer. “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt” ~Charles M Schulz (www.brainyquote.com).
As good as chocolate is, a box of chocolates should not stand alone as a valentine. Do you recall being a child when valentines were passed out around the classroom? Do you remember the excitement? Each valentine had a note with a piece of candy attached. Perhaps as a child you first ate the candy and noticed the notes afterward. Nevertheless, you also enjoyed the thoughtfulness of the valentine note. Yes, chocolate is great. But when you add a little sentiment you enhance the whole gift.
So it is with blog and print content. There must be something in the message that is meaningful to the reader. What is it the reader will be looking for when they scan your article? Will they linger because of the insightful information provided? Make no mistake, strategically write to produce valid content to the audience with whom you wish to connect.
Quick and Simple
Here is a quick and simple way to make a few chocolates even more special. Place five fancy decorated chocolates on a white dinner plate without any wrapper. Lightly pour chocolate syrup along the open part of the plate forming the words “I love you.” Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar. Now you have a treat and a valentine in one. I suggest that you place a well written greeting card slightly under the plate as a bonus. Great content can have a powerful impact.
Happy Valentines Day February 14th.
