Book Marketing Lunch with John Kremer
Last week I hosted two Book Marketing Lunches. I intended to do more but lost Internet access for 18 hours (all over New Mexico) and then lost electric power for several hours. Anyway, I was able to complete two videos.
In my Book Marketing Lunch with John Kremer for Wednesday, I talk about how to spread yourself, your book, and/or your website across the Internet via a simple tool.

In Friday’s Book Marketing Lunch, I described two additional websites where you can get content-rich live links to your website.
Watch and see how quick and easy it is for you to get more links to your website — and, thus, get more attention for you as a book author, for your book, for your website, and for your Amazon book sales page.

Inside Insights on Google Hangouts
If you are an author, speaker, coach, consultant or trainer, then you need to check out Google Hangouts On Air . . .
Recently I was chatting with my friend Daniel Hall who was telling me that you can use Hangouts On Air to connect with your audience and interact with them in real time.
It’s kind of like having a broadcast television show where you and your book are the stars!
What’s so cool is that you can use Hangouts On Air to reach 1000’s of new prospects, friends, and buyers for free.
There is a problem though. Hangouts On Air can be a wee bit tricky to set up and run. But Daniel told me it was easy when you know how.
Daniel went on to tell me that he has solved problems with Hangouts and put all his know-how into a brand new video training course called Hangouts On Air Explained.
He offered to make his succinct training for free. Here’s the rub… If you’re interested in top-notch training on how to get started using Hangouts On Air, I encourage you to watch this short video: http://www.danielhallpresents.com/hangouts-explained. It explains how you can get Daniel’s Hangouts On Air training for zip, zero, zilch.
Do it soon. It will only cost a YouTube like, and it’s great training.
Never grow up. If you’re writing or directing, give yourself enough time to play. Play the fool. Goad. Shock. Laugh. Trip over something that isn’t there. Try something. And never be afraid to fail. That failure is useful too. It’s just another building block. — Ricky Gervais, actor, writer, director, producer, comedian
