I’m always trying to come up with new promotion ideas. This year I created graphic campaigns. I found that graphics get a lot of engagement. People make comments or share my graphics. I receive messages from people saying the graphics inspire them or make them take action. Some graphics have inspired some to use my services or purchase my book. I have a monthly theme and create graphics that focus on those themes. Today I
I don’t have time to promote is a statement I hear a lot when I have my virtual tea sessions with my clients.  They have so many things on their plate; they just don’t have time to squeeze promotion in too. Unfortunately promotion is very important when it comes to books or businesses.  You have to make time to promote, or you won’t be making any sales. I’ve created a newsletter to help you tackle
Most writers or business owners don’t plan a budget for their promotion. It’s not something I recommend, but it happens a lot with new authors or new businesses. As a matter of fact, I started SORMAG with no budget. Back in 2000 I didn’t know anything about online promotion. I didn’t know I needed a budget or what to even spend my budget on. I was clueless to promotion, but I was in for an
Today I start my editing journey.  I’ve had the book back from the editor for a while, but I put off the editing because I had a lot of other things on my plate and I didn’t want to be distracted from giving my all to the book.  I chose September as my editing month and also created an Editing challenge to keep me motivated. I’m nervous about what the editor has to say, but
Today is all about social media tips. For me social media works when I schedule my posts.  Scheduling keeps me consistent and I don’t have to worry about if I’m promoting or not.  Any other time I’m on social media it’s because I want to be on social media, not because I have to. Another thing that works for me is having a plan for each platform.  Each one is different.  I use to post
One of my biggest issues with dealing with fear is admitting that I dealt with fear.  I called it procrastination, lateness, I’ll do it tomorrow, or I’m gonna do it. It was easy to call it a different name than what it was – FEAR. I’m a Christian, we’re not supposed to fear anything but God.  Unfortunately that’s not true.  There are a lot of Christians dealing with fear; some are probably calling it everything
Yesterday was National Book Lovers Day.  If you know me, you know I love me some books. On my FB profile I asked my FB family to share what book series they hated to see end. I’m going to share a few books here. The Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  This was my first book series. Anne Of Green Gables series by LM Montgomery The Hideaway series by Rochelle Alers
Today I celebrate one year as a published author and as a book publisher.  I want to share a few lessons I learned on the way. Everybody Is Not Your Reader – I teach this to my promotion clients, and I’m so glad I constantly reminded myself of this lesson daily. You want everybody to buy your book but everybody is not going to buy your book.  Especially those you supported in the past.  Just
If you know me, you know I love a good group.  I even host a few groups myself.  I’ve made some amazing connections from the groups I’m in and I’ve met many clients from these groups.  For the next few Thursdays, I will be sharing some of my favorite groups with you. My advice is to check them out.  See if they are a good fit for you, and then participate. Groups are about participating,

Sign up HERE.  The link to the summit will be at the end of the welcome
