Alert: The Ultimate Book Publicist
Chances are that some time in the past week or two you've received
one or more emails with the headline: The Ultimate Book Publicist or The
Ultimate Book Promotion from thebookpublicist @ yahoo.com. This email
promises to send 150,000 to 10 million readers to your website.
Don't fall for this promise. Their program includes sending out spam

a program. It will hurt your reputation across the entire Internet.
How to use the latest Internet marketing techniques to sell books
On July 14th, I interviewed Michael Tasner, president of TAZ Solutions
and author of Marketing in the Moment: The Practical Guide to Using
Web 3.0 Marketing to Reach Your Customers First. Our conversation
covered a wide array of information on using the latest techniques for
marketing books and other products on the Internet.
Michael revealed some very interesting techniques. I found them so
valuable that I wanted to share them with you. Free. You can listen to
the interview here: http://www.bookmarket.com/audios/tasner.mp3
Note: I will only keep this teleseminar up for 1 week as a free audio.
So you have to listen to it now. Of course, it will be available to all
the participants in the People You Should Know teleseminar series for
at least one year.
