Connie Bennett has started up a new blog with two different titles. I'm

Personally, I'm more attracted to the dramatic URL. That makes me
want to know more, but I'd like to know which you visit first. Please

Last Chance to sign up - 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.
Note: You don't have to attend live if you don't have time. You can
take the self-study course online for the same discounted price. It's a
good deal either way.
