Ten Million Eyeballs in Carlsbad, California
I'm hosting a live Ten Million Eyeballs two-day seminar in Carlsbad,
California on Saturday, June 26th, and Sunday, June 27th. You can
read about the content for this seminar and sign up for it by going to:
http://www.tenmillioneyeballs.com. The fee, which includes everything
featured in the Red Hot Special (normally $500), is only $297.
You must sign up this coming week if you want to be sure to have a
spot in this special live seminar.
Why take this seminar? Obviously, one key reason: Sell more books.
But, the more visible you are online, the more people who hear or read
about you and your book, the more you can also . . .
=> Sell more audios, videos, ebooks, courses, coaching, etc.
=> Get more visitors to your website.
=> Sell subsidiary rights for audios, videos, paperbacks, etc.
=> Get more followers and fans on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
=> Sell foreign rights. If they can't find you online, they don't buy rights!
=> Get more speaking engagements.
=> Form more relationships with key websites.
=> Reach more people with your ideas, inspiration, etc.
Here are a few more specialty retailers that sell books . . .

Ann McIndoo's Speed Writing System Seminar
Ann McIndoo is presenting a free teleseminar on Thursday where she'll
describe her speed writing system for getting nonfiction books written
in less than 90 days. If it's taking you longer to write your book than
you ever expected, you should listen in on this teleseminar. Ann has
already helped 268 authors get their books done on time.
The free telephone seminar is offered on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at
your choice of two times: either 2 pm Eastern (11 am Pacific) or 7 pm
Eastern (4 pm Pacific). To sign up for either teleseminar, go to:

Email column builds a platform
Several weeks ago, I wrote about Curtis Seltzer's syndicating a column
buying country property. Besides posting the columns on his website
and also including them in his email newsletter, he also offers them for
a fee to websites, blogs, and other media. As a follow-up to my
previous article, Curtis sent me the following additional feedback:
The column has been both a platform and a door. It provides content
that has built a platform (where none existed before), from which a
door has opened into speaking, consulting, blah-blahing, book sales and
whatever. The column I sent you is moving much more toward an
op-ed/feature style; the other one for http://www.landthink.com is
more meat-and-potatoes for real-estate folks.
A weekly column produces two other benefits. First, it forces the
writer to produce something each week--sometimes easier and better
than others. And second, it produces a book after a year. And, of
course, it shows that the writer was not just passing through.
I'm blah-blahing in Vancouver at the end of June, which is largely the
product of producing weekly columns related to a foundation book.
If you've been hesitating about writing a regular column or syndicating
articles via the Internet, use his story to help get you motivated.
Writing articles and columns can help you build a platform, get speaking
engagements, and sell more books.
