Building an email list... FAST!

See if you can relate to this...

Phil knew he wanted to market various 

products on the web but the problem was, he didn't have a list.

So he started the old fashioned way doing what everyone "suggested" he do.

Long-story short, he was building a list slowly but surely and within 6 months had built a list of just over 2000 people.

But he wanted to go faster.

Sound familiar?

So he started brainstorming on creative ways to attract the kind of people that could help him build a list quicker, faster and easier.

That's when it hit him and he came up with a VERY creative way to use WishList Member.

He explains what he did in this interview which you can download free:http://is.gd/sH69cb

LinkedIn could be your next secret weapon via @SandraBeckwith

click thru for details

Tips, tactics and tools for generating media awareness and other buzz about your books.


Hi Sylvia,

Can LinkedIn help you sell more books?

You bet. Like everything else with book marketing, though, you have to use it properly. To be honest, a lot of authors on LinkedIn don't know what they're doing. I know - I used to be one of them! But once I spent some time learning more about how to use this powerful resource, I saw a big difference in my results. Today, LinkedIn is driving more traffic to my website than any other source!

Many authors don't take the time to learn how it works, though, and end up quickly abandoning what has become the second largest social networking site in the U.S. What a shame.

I'd like to help you learn how to harness the power of the 120 million LinkedIn users in an information-packed teleseminar with Wayne Breitbarth, author of The Power Formula for LinkedIn Success. Wayne will share his LinkedIn success secrets for authors as my guest for "How to Use LinkedIn to Sell More Books" on October 25 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern, 6:00 p.m. Central, 5:00 p.m. Mountain, 4:00 p.m. Pacific.

We'll discuss what does and doesn't work for authors, mistakes to look out for, and specific things you can do to maximize your success potential. If you've listened to any of our Build Book Buzz teleseminars before, you know that we always offer a great deal of helpful information that you can use immediately!

Don't worry if that time isn't convenient for you - everybody who registers will get a link to the audio recording. Learn more and register now at http://bit.ly/qZbqK9. (All participants will receive Wayne's "LinkedIn Power for Authors" checklist at no extra charge, too!) I hope you can join us!


P.S. Remember, you don't have to be available at the time of the call to listen to it. We'll send you a link to the recording the next day.

If a police's power is held in their gun, the media's power is held in their stories.  What kind of stories are being told about Detroit? What kind of stories can our communities tell when we come together?  

Join members of the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition this Saturday for a workshop and strategy session on how to shape Detroit's Future, 140 characters at a time.  

We will share information about how three programs are currently using the #detroitfuture "hashtag" on Twitter to build a narrative of hope, justice and transformation in Detroit: Detroit Future Schools, Detroit Future Youth and Detroit Future Media.  

We will break down dominant stories about Detroit and build our own stories from the ground up.  

This training will also include:
    •    the basics of how to set up a twitter account
    •    how to use twitter on your phone versus your computer
    •    how to use twitter protocols (such as RT, @, and #)
    •    how to use twitter for organizing & promoting events
    •    how to use twitter as your one-stop-shop news source
    •    how to choose between different twitter software options

Please arrive at 12:30 if you don't currently have a twitter account and want to set one up before the training.  

By the end of this training you will be an official Twitter community storyteller, helping to build the collective narrative of #detroitfuture
