Well, well, it’s been a while since we chatted last, eh? If you remember my little colorful calendar quilt, that’d be the reason why. But that’s no excuse. There are several courses I’m in the middle of right now that are teaching me you deserve more than what I’ve been giving you. So starting today, you're first, not third on my list of To-Do-NOWs. Cool? Whew! I feel better now that’s off my chest :p
So, let’s get busy talking about publishing:You gotta. That’s it.
No seriously, you have to suck up that I’m-going-to-throw-up-yesterday’s-tuna-pasta-if-I-hit-publish feeling and do it. I did. And it wasn’t pleasant. Of course I didn’t actually hurl, but I damn near felt like it.
But, once it’s done, it’s over and you’ll move on to the next piece, like the first one didn’t drain your life force – though, it felt like it.
So get over throwing up your lunch and do it. You can. You’ll survive. And you’ll live to tell another tale. (And of course, if you just cannot do it, there's always this :D .)
Speaking of Tales
The one I published last week was about Bravery (specifically titled: What We Know About Bravery: A Lesson Book from the Front Lines). We in the Brave New Year (I’m renaming it "Brave Now" cause, damn it, it ain’t January anymore, Dorothy), got together and told snippets of what we learned from being Brave. Let me tell you: Being Brave gives you a shot in the ass. It sets you on fire. You know, kind of like becoming a published author.
Being Brave has changed each one of our lives and put us in a place now that may have taken us years to get to on our own. We all owe a lot to Chris Brogan for helping us get to where we are. And that was the honor behind publishing this lesson book.
So, want to get stuff done? Get Brave and DO IT.
Because being Brave makes you cashola.
And Speaking of Moula
I’m giving some away. I’m testing out a new affiliate thingy to see if it actually works or not. ;) From now until July 10th, if you send someone here, they buy a Copy Critique and mention you sent them, I’ll send you 50% of their purchase. And to make the math easy, that's 50 smackers. [Tweet?]
You can even use this template to send emails to people you know who need help:
I was thinking about you the other day when I saw this chick, Tania Dakka, doing Copy Critiques. She goes over your website’s words and helps you make them better so you book more clients and sell more stuff...and, dude, that means you’ll make more money! So, if you’re interested in making more moula, check her out. And don’t forget to tell her I sent you, K? (Uh, for clarity: I’ll get a little dough for sending you, but it won’t be as much as you’re going to make from making your words better!)
Cool? Let me know what you think!
See how easy it is? So since this is only a test, if they buy before July 10th, you’re in the door, dude:)
And on Promos: Thanks, Glossi!
And if you’ve never heard of Glossi, it’s a digital mag. Pinterest for magazines, basically. You can follow people and be followed. You can indulge in whatever visual candy you can think of. There are millions of uses for Glossi’s. I LOVE THEM.
Glossi is an EXCELLENT way to sexify a promo. You know you love true glossies you hold in your hand, why not make a digital one for your biz? I use them for ads, my portfolio, and, well just because I feel like zoning into something megacreative and want to look at gorgeous pics while I do it. :D
So, I created this Glossi for this Copy Critique copy because I thought it deserved to be Glossified. I Glossified Chris Brogan recently, too. This turned out to be an ad, but it never started that way. I did it because I thought it was cool. But he told me to put my affiliate links in and violá! It became an ad. (Define heart: giving away money, just sayin', Brogan.)
Now, how can you use Glossi to sexify your biz for more customers and clients?
That’s it this week! Have an amazing one! And tell me what you’re going to do with Glossi to up the wattage on your biz in the comments below!
Have a super week! Tania
