promotional $$

Happy Wednesday, everyone!


I don't spend a lot of money on promotion - thanks to the other Babes, I was coached early, lol.

Postcards are an inexpensive way to leave information at various conferences, as are business cards. Instead of having just my name on the card, I have the book cover, a blurb and my contact information.

I buy pencils with my website address on them, for school visits. I bought pens once, but they weren't quality so I don't know that I would do that again.

Bookmarks are fine, if you spend the little bit extra to get good paper stock and use a professional printer.

I just bought 250 wrist bands that say "I love writing" and have my website on them, for 88 dollars. I don't what they look like, though, so I can post more next week. I have a young adult book coming out in April, and three school visits, so I need fun give aways for the kids.

I do as many booksignings as I can, and go to as many conferences as I can, for networking purposes more than the classes. I wear my nametag, because I am my own promotion...scary, but true, lol

 My website, fanpage and author page on Amazon are all updated - oh, and I did just hire a publicist to help me coral my wandering interests and try to find a brand for me, that fits all of me and my books.  I decided to invest in my 'career', and I will gladly share with you all what I learn as I go.

I've studied marketing, and spent a lot, lot lot of hours trying to distill what I've learned into something managable - mostly what I learned is that I will never come close to knowing enough, lolololol.

I've reached the point where I would rather hire someone to do my website and web promotion so that I can actually write!

Those are my thoughts - does anyone have a great idea on promotion that was a game changer in terms of actual sales? Please share, if you do!

Recommending your housecleaning services to make sure you high website visitors stores in which require normal cleaning may bring about an still higher sound, consistent cash flow stream. Going door-to-door on the shopping district may bring about clients, but would be time-intensive. Once you hire a fabulous commissioned salesperson for work on developing marketing ebay it may well limit any immediate expenditure for the legwork and turn into extremely profitable on the long-run.

Like you, I also don't spend money on playing computers games. I only play free games and I want to share here the game I am playing with my friends. empire battle games and words with friends 2 download are the games we are playing after a long day of work. If you need a guide for playing these games, I can ask my friend and I’m pretty sure he will be happy to help. By the way, his account belongs on the leader board in both games.
