It’s Friday the 13th so I thought I ought to update you good people on the happenings here at stevenlucasmarketing.com.
First bit of news is that sales of ‘How To Be A Social Marketer‘ have started. I won’t say spectacular (just yet) but it’s gaining attention and is available through WarriorPlus and JVZoo. It’s also on Amazon for the Kindle and I’ll be popping over there at the weekend to add it to my CreateSpace portfolio too so it can be seen as a paperback too (Print on demand, so there’ll be no big stack of remainders in my garage).
I’ve also picked up a WordPress plugin called Facebook Viral Bomb 2.0 which should help me to increase my list. I’ll let you know more once I’ve RTFM and got a campaign under way.
Other happenings this week is a couple of Kindle ebooks by Kip Piper. She has a series of over 20 books all in the online marketing tutorial niche, linking together to be a complete course. The ones I read were for list generation using LinkedIn and Twitter. On the strength of her suggestions I’ve made some changes to my LinkedIn profile, so that I feature this blog and my internet marketing activities more strongly. Time will tell if it brings in any more traffic from that source. I already do what she suggests for Twitter except for being a bit less pushy and a bit more advice – pretty much in line with what AJ and in fact a lot of other people suggest. Don’t chase the money…
One last ‘happening’ is I got my first request to mentor someone else. Chuffed to my smarties or what! (For American readers… Chuffed – pleased with oneself. Smarties – British M&Ms, the chocolate ones). Still need to set up a first Skype call and I’ve asked him some questions to find out what stage he’s at. I was ‘found’ through the warrior forum just by being local to him – I suppose 50 miles is quite local, anyway!
A couple of nice comments to on AJ’s Marketing With Alex Facebook group too. Apparently my style resonates well so I’ll keep up my postings on there too.
Now working on my next freebie – something around 2000 to 5000 words on brand building, to be used as a lead in for How To Be A Social Marketer. You’ll see it on here first in a week or so, as well as a full report on Facebook Viral Bomb 2.0 when I see for myself what it can do and if it does it!
