Last Friday, my blog entry was a question for James Brausch, an extremely well known internet marketer. I asked what is the optimal length of time for a special offer. (Brausch often uses a 24-Hour Special, and I have emulated him in using 24-Hour Specials for several of my own products.)
On his blog today, James not only answered my question (check it out–his answer may surprise you), but he also named me the winner of his “best question” contest! I don’t know the exact content of the prize, but since it has a retail value of several thousand dollars, I expect it will contain a number of his products. I’ve bought several of his products over the last year or so, and I’ve found them Xtremely useful, so I’ll be jazzed to get whatever he sends me. Thanks, James!
I know that many of you are interested in marketing your fiction more effectively, and I think you’ll find James’s blog very interesting. I have had a look at the work of quite a number of internet marketers, and Brausch is one of the three folks whose advice has been the most practical to me.
In particular, his Glyphius software has been very helpful in writing effective ad copy, and his RaSof tool has helped me make my pages search-engine friendly without any need for dirty tricks. (If you Google “fiction writing blog”, you’ll see that my blog ranks 5th. If you Google “fiction writing ezine”, the top TWO results are on my site.)
I’m looking at the comments you all left for my post yesterday, and it appears that there is continuing interest in talking about how to write male characters for your fiction. I’ll continue tomorrow on the topic of How Guys Think. RelevantGirl posted a sample from her work in progress which I will critique to see if her character is truly a “Manly Guy.” See ya then!
