Most people who read my blog are looking for information about being an online marketer. That’s what I do and that’s what I teach.
What they don’t always understand is that in order to “market,” you have to have a “product.”
Yes, that means something to sell.
Anyone out there surprised?
Just checking. Because many get lost at this one spot. They are blogging, using social media, and generally having a ball online. But don’t have a business. Or even the beginning of a business.
I hope that’s not YOU!
For those of you who do understand what it’s all about (and for the newbies who are just now “getting it”), this post is for you!
I am in marketing overdrive. Can you relate? I’m having my first-ever book launch tomorrow and I’ve been a marketing fool for the last couple of weeks and a maniac the last 48 hours.
I know. It’s simple. I have systems in place. They work smoothly on their own. Don’t they? Well, usually, but this product promotion seems bigger. More massive. More. . . . . .(dare I say it?) s.t.r.e.s.s.f.u.l.
And here’s why. . . . .
In order to really have a fantastic over-the-top book launch, I called on my network. You know, that same network that I write about in my new book, Be Social Be Rich. And, while I LOVE my network and all the cool people I get to call my “sphere,” I never really like asking them to help me. On anything. I just like them to notice what I’m doing and support me. (!)
You have to ask!
OK. What good is a network if they can’t help you out? AND, if you have built a network based on relationships and trust, they WANT to help you out. We are all in this together, right? Sooooooooo, I took some of my own advice and didn’t wait for them to call me, I called them.
And, what a response!
Yes, I have a marketing plan. It’s quite extensive, actually. It includes e-mails, social media, articles, interviews, guest blogging, press releases, Squidoo lenses, hashtag parties, and FB events, to name a few. But, on this product launch, it also includes some awesome people in my network.
You see, other people will help you with your online marketing. If you only ask.
Tomorrow is the big day!
We will be unveiling the book early in the morning. I say “we” because my network is in full swing. When you purchase the book, you will have an opportunity to receive FREE gifts and bonuses from some heavy hitters. Some awesome big-league marketers and online biz gurus. I guess I should start the name-dropping here.
But wait. . . . I won’t!
I know. It seems a little cruel. But here’s the thing. I want you to be blown away in the morning when you see all the gifts and bonuses being offered. And who they’re from. Yes, I like surprises and you will too!
If you haven’t already done it, go to Be Social Be Rich and leave your e-mail address. You will be on the list to receive the first e-mail in the morning about the bonuses. Yes, they are all free with your purchase of my book. You will LOVE this bag (or should I say truckload!) of goodies.
You can thank me later
