Libraries Offer Audio Products to Their Members

Monday, August 29th, 2005
 

“A new way to borrow audiobooks from the library involves no CDs, no car trips, no fines and no risk of being shushed.

Rather, public libraries from New York City to Alameda, California, are letting patrons download Tom Clancy techno-thrillers, Arabic tutorials and other titles to which they can listen on their computers or portable music players — all without leaving home.

Librarians say such offerings help libraries stay relevant in the digital age.”

Read the whole article: Libraries offering audiobook downloads.

As you can see, more and more people are interested in getting audio products, and libraries are helping them get them. Do you offer audio products to your clients? Do you clients want audio products? Here are some ideas to create audio products for your business:

- Record all of your teleseminars. All the teleseminars that I offer get recorded, and are available to listen to free of charge for members of MarketingSalad.com.

- Record your in-person events.

- Create audio products from your digital products - ebooks and reports. Than, offer a bundle of the same information in audio and digital formats.

How can Public Relations Bring your More Business?

Wednesday, August 24th, 2005
 

Imagine getting your name, business name and quotes into a major publication, being called by reporters when they need a comment by someone with your expertise, or being quoted on TV.

All of this is well within your reach, with a thought-out PR campaign. A good campaign will help you write press releases that attract a reporter’s attention, so that the reporter calls you back, instead of just ignoring your press release. A good campaign will help you piggyback onto national stories and be prepared when the reporter calls you.

You can learn how to do all of this and much more this Thursday, August 25th at 2pm Eastern. Join me and Shannon Cherry, a PR expert will teach a teleclass Media Zero to Media Hero. Register for the Teleseminar, and learn the PR techniques and tactics that the professionals use.

This is a very interesting development in publishing and selling published content. Amazon.com is letting authors sell previously unpublished short stories, ranging from 2,000 to 10,000 words in digital form and consumers can read the digital literature for 49 cents a story. Take a look at the full story here: Amazon Lets Authors Sell Short Stories.

Would you submit your story for this? Do you think you would like to sell your stories for 49 cents?

How to Develop Teleseminars

Monday, August 22nd, 2005
 

Teleseminars are seminars that are taught over the phone. Many coaches and other solo professionals are teaching them, and they are doing it for a reason. Teleseminars are easier to teach than regular seminars - they can be taught right from your office, all you need is a phone.

Seminars attendees also like to attend the seminars because of the convenience factor - they can attend them right from their own office. They also like the seminars, because even though the expert might charge $200+ an hour for one on one sessions, teleseminars are done in groups, and, thus, cost less money per person.

When you start developing your first teleseminar you might be asking yourself - how many classes should I have in a series”, how many people should attend, should the teleclass be interactive. These things are really up to you. It would be helpful to set up the first teleseminar the way it would be the most convenient for you; than, based on your experience, modify the teleseminar for the future.

Lengthwise, I usually don’t like sessions that are longer than 90 minutes. Back in school we could not absord too much information. Same here, you want to give your clients as much information as possible, but you also want to give them an amount that is easy to absord and retain. Once there is an information overload, they won’t remember as much.

We have been discussing how to teach teleclasses at MarketingSalad.com recently. Once you join, you will get immediate access to all of the past discussions, as well as will be able to ask more questions on the topic.

Or, take a look at the How to Conduct and Market Successful Teleseminars report.

How to Grow your Mailing List

Thursday, August 11th, 2005
 

A targeted double-opt in list is a great tool to keep in touch with your customers, fill up your teleclasses and sell your products and services. Here is what you need to do to start building your list:

- Define the target market for the newsletter. Usually it is the same target market as you have for your coaching business. By marketing consistently to your target audience through your mailing list, you will create a group of people interested in what you have to say and products that you have. Don’t try to get everyone on your list - a smaller, targeted list is more responsive than a larger, untargeted one.

- Make the newsletter interesting and useful, so that your subscribers share it with others. This way your subscribers will be looking forward to your newsletter AND will share it with others. I often get emails from people who received my newsletter forwarded by a colleague - this is a great example of viral marketing.

- Promote your newsletter among your target market - put a prominent sign up box on your web site and on your blog. Use a link to your newsletter in your signature. Use pay search engines and joint ventures to get more sign ups - there are many possibilities.

Members of MarketingSalad.com learn from me how to build a targeted list of newsletter subscribers.
