    This one is still hilarious!

    Maybe we should start a new toon series - "What's wrong with this picture?"

    You are free to submit any topic you wish. But, keep the following in mind...

    We are a social community.

    All kinds of people visit allnurses. You have access to the same tools they have.

    You can ask questions.
    You can share your experiences.
    You can rant.
    You can leave a comment.
    You can share a "study guide".
    You can share an "article".
    You can read whatever you want.

    Before posting any topics we do ask that you abide to our Terms of Service. Any topic in violation of our Terms of Service will be removed. This is a waste of your time and ours.

    What is a topic? A topic is a subject of discussion. It can be written to teach, to inform, or to entertainment. It's purpose is to start a conversation on allnurses.com.

    We are here for EVERYONE.

    We are here to help you in networking, sharing, talking, and learning all things nursing.

    What is Content Type?

    We use Content Types to group content found on allnurses.com.

    Content Types are labels that help us filter content. They are used by our system to format/style the content to make them stand out.

    Articles, Images, Contests, Surveys, Videos, Polls, FAQs, Featured, threads, etc are all examples of Content Type. They are all CONTENT. Content read by our readers. Content written by our members.

    Images/Albums, Polls, and Videos are labels that are automatically set by the system on submitting content. The other labels are added by Staff.

    These labels are hotlinked. When clicked you are redirected to a page that lists all topics with that label.

    Here are examples of how content types help us filter content on the site...


    Articles are the best way to build a following.

    When labeled as an 'Article' your content will be found on forums, main page, Nursing Articles page, profile, newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and so much more. They will easily stand out to grab the reader's attention. Also, all articles written are listed in the author's profile Blog page.

    When submitting an article ... there is an Article? option ... select 'Yes, I'm submitting an Article.'

    IMPORTANT: The default Content Type is 'Thread'. Most topics will fall under this type. If topic does not conform to our Article Rules then leave this option as-is.

    If you want to submit an Article the following applies:

    Articles are reviewed by staff before going public. No chat txt, 600 word minimum, grammar, punctuation, spelling, are some of the reasons your content may not be approved as an article. No self-promotion unless pre-approved. Must be unique and not posted elsewhere.

    We are not English teachers so we are not looking for perfection. But, we do want to make sure that our readers can follow it. That our readers will enjoy it.

    How to start a topic...

    Topics can be started from any page on allnurses.com. To start a topic please click
    button found in the section that closely matches your topic.

    We know that privacy concerns are important to you. So, we made some changes to give you the choice of who sees your profile information. Your profile information is found on your Profile page and in topics and comments created by you.

    Not sure what I mean...
    At the bottom of this message, you will find additional information about me. This information I share via my Profile page. This information is found on topics and comments that I create. I can control who sees this information via my Settings page. I have my Privacy option set to EVERYONE.

    The following options are now available in your PRIVACY setting...

    • Keep Private
    • Everyone
    • Registered Members Only
    • My Contacts Only
    • My Friends Only

    The Keep Private option will keep your information private from everyone. It's only accessible by allnurses.com. Information will be used for internal purposes only. For example, a setting may ask if you are a Nurse, Student, or Retired. If you select Nurse we could use this information to personalize your experience on allnurses.com. (This is something we are focusing on for 2019.)

    The Privacy option can be accessed via your Settings page.

    NOTE: By selecting 'KEEP PRIVATE', this information is no longer visible to the public or members. BUT, it is visible to YOU. (You own the information so it's visible to you.)

    ---

    These options are available to help our members network and promote nursing with like-minded individuals. It's not for everyone.

    Some members want to build their brand up (Influencers/Entrepreneurs) while others just want to make friends. We even have people come here posting just one question. And, that's fine.

    My point is that we have many different types of people coming to the site.

    Our goal is to find a balance that will work across the board. Which is why we've been working on these changes - some people want complete privacy while others want the information available to the community. For example, when providing support they want the readers to know that they specialize in XYZ and have so many years of experience. This builds trust and a better relationship with those involved.

    So many people come here seeking answers that it's important that they trust the message. That the message is coming from somebody with authority. It's really up to them to decide but by making the tools available it makes the experience that much better. It helps build relationships.

    Other changes...

    IMPORTANT: Birthday and age are now PRIVATE. This is no longer shared anywhere on the site.

    Some options have been updated to control what people share. For example, the "years of experience" option has been changed. Before it was open for manual input, but this allowed people to abuse the system. We now have a set of values for you to select from.

    All of this is building up for a new allnurses.com - launching 2019. The above changes will help deliver a new personalized experience.

    More information will be shared later in the year.

    I'm seeing a lot of nurses writing book(s). Smart and experienced nurses sharing their knowledge. This is good for the profession.

    What surprises me is that there's clearly no marketing plan. What I usually find is the author placing a link to amazon to download the book - that's it!!!!

    How do you expect to sell if all you do is link to amazon?

    YOU CAN DO BETTER!

    Chances are there's a lot of competition in amazon for the same keywords. And, word-of-mouth only works if people actually read the book. If people don't know your book exists how do you expect to make a sale?

    amazon is not a miracle cure. You still need to SELL the book.

    The best thing you can do to increase sales is to create a landing page on your site. A landing page is basically a sales pitch to purchase.

    Having a landing page on your site will...

    1 ) Improve brand / trust
    2 ) Improve traffic to your site
    3 ) Increase sales opportunities
    4 ) Increase opportunities to create a following

    Once you have a landing page, you can start linking to the landing page instead of the amazon page. An increase in direct traffic will increase your organic traffic. Organic traffic is the best marketing tool. It doesn't cost a dime, but it does take work.

    The more orgainic traffic you have the more successful your next pitch will be.

    Don't forget to include the landing page link on your allnurses profile page. This will improve your backlink profile. Also, each time you write an article your homepage link, as well as your social network links, are visible to all the readers.

    allnurses.com is the largest nursing network in the world - using it smart WILL increase traffic to YOUR site.
