Ways to Market Your Books
Using Teleseminars to Create and Market
Books — In May 2007 I hosted a teleseminar on how you can use teleseminars to create new content,
write new books, build important relationships, promote your books, and sell more books. In this seminar, I revealed a secret tip on how to begin creating relationships with top
media and book buyers, even months or years before your book comes out.
This one tip could boost your book marketing program to levels few
authors or publishers have ever enjoyed. May, 2007. 100 minutes. Mp3 audio download, $47.00.
