Blog Series on Marketing

Just wanted to give you a heads-up on this:

Lisa Tener coaches writing. She will be featuring a blog series February 2-6 written by Rusty Shelton and others from Phenix and Phenix Literary Publicists, about how to create a marketing platform.

Some of the subjects include:

- Why publicity is important

- How to develop your publicity and platform before you even write or publish your book -- and how that can set a foundation for great book sales

- How to develop a PR and platform building strategy

- How the publicity process works

- What goes into a press kit

- How to present yourself on the air (TV and radio)

- How to get invited back after an interview

- How to leverage the internet for PR

- How social media can support buzz for your book -- and how not to alienate people by misusing this medium.

I believe there will be opportunities to ask questions. I don't know how good this series will be, but thought I'd pass it along.

You can find Lisa's website HERE.

Hi Amy (and everyone else),
Lisa Tener here...
I was thrilled to see your post about the blog series that Phenix & Phenix (in particular Rusty Shelton) will be guest blogging.
In answer to the question about questions--yes yes yes. Any questions about book publicity are fair game and we welcome questions--you might even consider the week a free course in book publicity--please come and bring your questions. Rusty and I and the folks at Phenix & Phenix will all tune in--at least one of us should be able to answer your question! And who knows, you may get more than one answer.
