I’VE NEVER HEARD OF YOU!

The above statement is one many an artist would prefer never to have referenced to them or their work. That said, common sense dictates that not everyone will immediately know who you are or will have been privy to your works.

In order to minimize the numbers of those without knowledge of your prowess, an effective marketing strategy is one of your most powerful weapons.

You may believe that marketing efforts cannot be successful without a large budget. That at one time may have been the case, but no longer. There is an adage that says ‘work smarter, not harder’. These same words can and should be applied to your marketing strategy.

Over the next few weeks we will have guest hosts who will encourage as well as lend their expertise to assist you in creating or perfecting your marketing plan.

Our Promotion’s Month begins Tuesday, August 5th. Please stop by to support our efforts. Invite your friends and leave questions or comments for our hosts and attendee’s.

Until next time go forth allowing your works be your praise!

Shelia thank you for stopping by. We are looking forward to an informative and fun-filled month.

Our goal is to help as many as we can with the ever-evolving trends in promotions. We don't proclaim to know it all. We do intend to share all that we can with our guests.

Do stop by often and don't forget to bring a friend.

Linda!

Linda,

This is a great idea. Visions in Print Writer's Group became concerned with how little so many of the authors me meet know about marketing. That's why we teamed with Marina Woods to do the tele-seminar we're having tomorrow. We have a lot of people registered and I pray it will be a blessing for all who attend in terms of increasing their knowledge.

Blessings,

Rhonda

Rhonda the concern across the board regarding a need to understand, explore and create avenues of marketing is constant.

I am delighted that more than one avenue of enlightenment is being offered to the growing number of people in need.

Thanks for stopping by.

Linda!

This will be such a benefit to not only our BWCL members but to others who are on this journey.

The area that I feel I truly need assistance in is marketing (AND pitching...can someone do a workshop on that!?!?)

I pray that we are all being positioned for purpose!

Be blessed!
