Work It Baby, Work It! – Coral Russell
It’s July again. That means a new edition of the The DIY Guide to eBook Publishing and Social Media Marketing has arrived!
For those of you that don’t know, my husband is a salesman and I was able to go to an event with him. I helped him pimp out the event through Twitter and Facebook and realized right then and there that kind of immediate interaction is what it is all about. I’ve made direct changes to everything I do social media wise because of that experience.
My husband is a great salesman. He knows no strangers and he tells me that he doesn’t try to sell anything. He just has conversations with people and listens. Through listening he finds out what that person wants and needs and tries to fulfill it. He is able to judge if he can by knowing his product. His best months are when he has a lot of referrals. In other words, former customers have liked the experience with him so much that they send other people to him. During the event, he may not have made any direct sales but he handed out twenty or so business cards and had some great exposure.
And that folks, is sales in a nutshell no matter what you are trying to sell.
What’s new in this edition? There are added resources for blog tours and a small section on Pinterest. I am really pleased and thankful for the authors, bloggers and editors who stepped forward to share their knowledge with the new ‘advice’ columns.
