Here are a few resources to help you conduct teleseminars and webinars as well create new audio and video products.
Using Teleseminars to Create and Market Books — This audio program describes how you can use teleseminars to create new content, write new books, build important relationships, promote your books, and sell more books. In this seminar, I revealed a secret tip on how to begin creating relationships with top media and book buyers, even months or years before your book comes out. This one tip could boost your book marketing program to levels few authors or publishers have ever enjoyed. 100 minutes. Mp3 audio download, $12.00.
