Friday's Marketing Round up (6/5)

First thing first

Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my bog this month - we did 315 comments ($78.75). I know its not much but its something.

BTW - for all you who bid or blogged about the auction - we raised $13,000 for Bridget on the auction. Someone even bid on my marketing package :)

Also I am adding a poll on the side: Should I split my blogs and do Market my Words specifically for marketing but do Srjohannes for my writing journey? Would you all follow me if I split off?

Now, here are my favorite marketing posts this week:

Some don't want any promotion at all. - Most of us eagerly grab all the book promotion opportunities we can get. And then there are those who want no book promotion at all.

Effective Speeches - 5 questions to ask yourself while preparing a speech. This is the basic structure every talk should follow.

Webinar class - Look at your marketing/promotion skills as a writer - are you a generalist or a specialist?

Simple ways to promote yourself - When it comes to online promotion, it's really about participating.

Everything I learned about twitter -
Here’s how some of the mantras from our undergrad days now make the best tweets.

Thanks again for all the congrads! Have a great weekend!!

Thanks, Shelli. It's nice to know that you are providing $$ support for someone who needs it. Great modeling!

Tess said...

That is fantastic auction news. I'll have to check out these links this weekend, thanks!

Great article by Penny.

As for your blog, I personally like the combination of writing journey and marketing info. Being focused is important, but that doesn't mean you have to be one dimensional. I think you have a good balance.

That being said, I'll read you wherever you are :)

Corey Schwartz said...

I'd follow both if you split, but i like the balance you've got now!

Danyelle said...

Thanks for the links. They were great!

Christina Farley said...

I love your blog so of course I'm going to read it. That is so sweet of you to donate money!

These are great links.

As an aspiring writer in Atlanta myself, your blog gives me so much to relate to. I recently changed the entire direction of my book and was so intimidated by the thought of doing so. But it is very fulfilling to overcome these tiny hurdles.

I love your blog!
