WebBasedPR: Marketing Strategies for Authors
Many of you know me as the author of the book, HONEST MEDICINE, which has been an Amazon.com bestseller for 5 years. I attribute the book’s success to three promotional strategies I have developed and applied over the years. This experience has been so gratifying and inspiring that I want to share these strategies for success with authors and aspiring authors—especially those who want their works to make significant difference to our world.
With this new service, I am returning to my “PR ROOTS”:
I have been a public relations consultant for professionals and private practitioners since 1985. My clients have been experts in their fields. With my expertise they have become better known to their potential clients and patients, and have built their professional practices.
I am now expanding my public relations services to include helping AUTHORS, aspiring authors and other experts to reach their potential readers by using the strategies that have made my book, HONEST MEDICINE, a success.
This website also contains a cornucopia of valuable information, and I will be posting more in the weeks and months to come.
For starters, here are a few of the articles and interviews you may want to read:
- An interview with me conducted by book publicist Cathy Lewis of C.S. Lewis & Company Publicity: “Does Radio Sell Books?” (My answer is a resounding “Yes”!)
- My 3-part article, published by the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), on how leaving COMMENTS on blogs and media sites can sell books. (ACAM is one of the two main professional organizations for alternative health practitioners.)
- Another interview with me about whether FACEBOOK sells books (Again, my answer is a resounding "Yes"!)
- And, of course, information about my new MEDIA COACHING SERVICE for authors.
I will continue to post information that is of interest to authors, aspiring authors, and other professionals who want to learn how to share their expertise online and on the air.
For instance, I plan to interview some of my favorite radio talk show hosts and producers, who will tell you what they look for in a guest.
If you are an author or aspiring author—and especially if you want to learn how your book and your ideas can help to change the world—please check out my media coaching services for authors.
