Quick Case Study: Beverleigh Piepers

The 17th edition in a series of posts that highlight one Expert Author who has achieved success by doing just one thing exceptionally well.

Beverleigh Piepers likens the process of writing and submitting articles to talking to people. They’re both a means of communication to make real connections and explain to people the “real deal” about issues, except articles have the scale to reach people worldwide.

Beverleigh has a desire to have a real impact with readers that could save their lives. This desire has motivated her to write many articles on living with diabetes and treatment options.

According to Beverleigh, “I want type 2 diabetics to have a better life, be really informed about their condition, and know where they stand. I think [my articles] attract type 2 diabetics who are looking for answers they’ve had trouble finding elsewhere. It’s great when I hear one of my readers has told their friend to sign up to receive my articles.”

If that wasn’t motivation enough, Beverleigh has also accepted and completed several writing challenges, including #HAHD.

Sharing Your Articles – Easily Post to Your Site With an RSS Feed

There are a couple of very powerful ways you can share your expertise outside of your EzineArticles account.

One such example is placing your Expert Author RSS feed on your own website. This gives your site visitors a chance to see the extent of your expertise directly.

RSS (also known as Real Simple Syndication) is a way for people interested in certain topics to be instantly updated when new content on those topics is published. RSS feeds provide a stripped-down version of the new content in a flexible web format that can be placed on websites or read with an RSS reader.

All EzineArticles Expert Authors with at least one published article have an RSS feed set up for their articles. The Expert Author RSS feed shows a summary of your bio and your most recent articles with the title, published date and a summary.

New Author Bio Layout Test

Today, we officially launched the beta test of a fresh, new Author Bio page for every Expert Author.

A little over a month ago, our new Blog theme made its “red carpet” debut. Back then, we asked for your first impressions and feedback on the Blog’s updated appearance and new features. We’ve taken that feedback and applied it to the Expert Author Bio Page as well.

Here’s What’s Changed:

  • A new crisp, clean look. Everything on this page is easily accessible and delivers on our purpose: To bring the focus to you and to promote you as the Expert Author.
  • Your Expert Author View and Expert Bio View shared similarities. Now you have all your information in one area, which makes you easily accessible.
  • Easy Access to comments, views, and the niches you’ve written in.
  • Published dates are visible on this page (this used to be located at the bottom of the article view).
  • Quick sign-up box to get email notifications when the displayed author publishes a new article.
  • 25 most recent articles.
  • Top 20 niches you’ve written in (ranked highest to lowest).
  • Brand new search function specific to the author which allows you to search the author’s articles.
  • Links to the author’s recommended reading and 4 professional photo thumbnails in the “More From …” section.

Now it’s more important than ever to complete all of your Expert Author Bio by posting an author photo, a short introduction of who you are and links to your websites and social media pages. Go to your Expert Author Account now and fill in as much as you can. The more complete this section is, the better you look!

Also, leave a comment below to let us know what you think of the new Author Bio page layout.

EzineArticles Formula Available Dec. 7th

Last week I shared with you that our team has been working on a comprehensive step-by-step 10-module / 5-week training course called EzineArticles Formula.

Six people on our online education team spent six weeks in producing this course, which was expected to debut tomorrow. But, after reviewing the great input from 80+ comments in the Blog, we’ve determined that investing another few weeks of work into this training will insure that it’s done right.

Here’s our plan:

This Thursday, we’re going to reveal, in detail, the outline of this 10-module course. This course was assembled after reviewing over 500,000+ support tickets to our member support team, 10,000+ emails to my AskChristopherKnight site and our 10+ years in this business.

On Thursday I’ll be asking for your help to make sure the course covers the knowledge and skills you most want to discover, master and execute with less pain and fewer frustrations.

December 7th 2010, Noon CST, is the new release date.

There will be no limits to how many students we will be able to accept. But because this is a time-delivered course, there will be a limited window of availability no different than any college level course. In other words, it will have a start and an end date as a component to its delivery.

Our intention is to make this course comprehensive yet quick-start enough for a beginner- to intermediate-level Expert Author. We hope to over-deliver to our charter students so that we can accomplish two things:
