First off, the August 2010 Creative Lube podcast is now available. In it I talk about success and offer three ideas on how to be more successful. You can purchase the podcast here ($8).
Speaking of the podcast, I am looking for an alternative hosting service for the podcast. If anyone has suggestions, that would be grand. Shoot me an email.
In other news, I’m sorry I’ve not been posting here as regularly lately. Most of August has been taken up by getting my new book out and taking some time off before school starts again. I’ve been traveling for fun too (even went to Vegas for the first time–and returned with money!). So, although school starts again on Monday, I will be posting here more regularly.
I promise. At least one new post a week. That’s what you should do too, if you are using a (photo)blog to market to your targets–update it at least once a week. Buyers say that not updating a blog is a big negative in their eyes.
However, honestly, for the most updates from me, I encourage you to “like” my Facebook business page. It’s much easier for me to post quick links and blurbs there. This blog is better for longer format posts.
Oh, and if you are using Facebook for business, make sure you are doing it from your own business page. Buyers see FB as a personal space generally but will look more kindly on business contact from FB if it is from a business page (not a personal account).
Finally, the next free Manual will be issued via email in early September. Are you on my list so that you will get it? If not, shoot me an email and please remember to include your URL if you have a generic email address (like @gmail.com) so that I know you’re not a phisher/spammer or other non-creative scumbag.
