Are you a creative professional/freelancer/guru/genius without a newsletter (or whatever you prefer to call it)? Are you putting time most days into growing your mailing list to which you send this newsletter?
There are so many new ways to promote yourself and your brand on the Internet, some of which involve some form of writing. Below, I’ve taken all the methods that I’ve taken from a free ebook I made, to share here in some detail.
An often overlooked tool that you, the creative professional, can use to make big differences in the effectiveness and far-reaching capability of promoting yourself, is the information product.
Particularly with the ease in which material is transmitted and shared on the internet, such products as training videos, ebooks and articles, have become an incredibly powerful means to get your brand in front of many targeted people. Creating information products can help you gain exposure to potentially thousands of people, no matter what your profession.
A lot of us get tangled up in trying to promote ourselves online without realising the value in joining forces more often with other people who exist on the web.
It can be a wise way to expand your network, pool resources and save time and work.
Building up a database of accessible contacts gradually, was listed as one of the 6 key ingredients to powerful self promotion in a previous post.
One of the best ways to do this is to have people in your network, including fans, friends, previous clients and potential clients, sign up to your email mailing list.
