    Do you want to get more buzz for your website? Try sending out periodic (once a month) Press Releases! If you don’t have any noteworthy material which might warrant a Press Release, do something noteworthy such as get booked for a speaking engagement, write an article or a book, join an organization, get an award, do a book signing, get an interview on a radio or television program, get interviewed by a local magazine.

    The point is, if you’re not doing something newsworthy, you need to start planning your business practice to encompass events and milestones in your business. Anniversaries are a reason to celebrate such as your one years anniversary of starting your business.

    You can interview someone who is in your field who your admire and create a joint venture. It will also become part of your media library and future material for your membership site.

    Look around at where you’ve been in your business, where you are and where you want to go from here. You should be able to create at least one newsworthy event every month!

    Make a list of all the things you want to accomplish for your business and begin to blog about them. Then go to SelfGrowth.com, LinkedIn and Facebook to find experts who have accomplished what you aspire to accomplish and engage in a conversation with them.

    You’d be surprised at how helpful people are. So, get started today!

  • Author Blogging Program

    Posted on December 13th, 2011 Sharyn No comments

    I have been talking with Simon Treselyan for about four years. We met on Facebook and have kept in touch all this time. We have not shared much more than an occasional check in message.

    Then Thanksgiving week Simon Skyped me and asked if we could talk. Since Simon lives Australia we managed to find a time we could talk on Thanksgiving morning. We decided to map out a program for authors in Australia to help them get published and teach them to market their books.

    It was a great conversation and we have a pretty good plan for a program that we will launch in March starting in Sydney then Melbourne and Brisbane. We’re going to target about 200 authors at each location, but then we realized I wouldn’t be able to guide that many new authors, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

    So now we’re going to create a program to teach coaches how to work with the authors. It will make it better to have a coach work with ten or twelve new authors and have about twenty coaches trained. It will be great to be able to provide a new income resource for the coaches.

    I am very excited about helping that many authors launch their careers. Of course the blogging program will play a big role in helping them get good traffic to their websites.
