Tips #1

I think my first tips would be that I recommend Mozilla Firefox over Internet Explorer. Occasionally you may have a bug with something and then try IE and it works, but usually it’s the other way around. I made the switch about a year ago and life has been so much easier! Hardly any crashes, and when FF does crash, it doesn’t close down all of my programs.

But my true first tip is a plug in that is built to use in Firefox.

Go into firefox, and click Tools>Add Ons>Get Add Ons, then search for an application called MyWords.  (No space in MyWords).

This little application is FABULOUS and I use it dozens of time every day – literally!

Anything  you type in a browser you can save it to use in the future.

I have about 30 of these. They include:

  • Forms where I need to put a 5 sentence bio, a description of my book, etc. I have a few with different language, as well as shorter ones and longer ones.
  • Message I need to send over and over, like when I confirm people’s orders for my store or the order was not completed.
  • I even use it for code such as “target=”_blank”> when I am working in my blog with HTML.
  • I use it to store keywords, so when I post a blog on different topics I have pre-set keywords with one click.

Can you imagine how you could use this?

Any time you are on the internet and want to fill something in you just right click, scroll to “MyWords” and insert it.

Below is a screen shot.

The first time, you type what you want, right click and choose, “Add my words”

If you choose “organize” you can choose the order of where you want each thing to go.

I used to try to use back up signature files in my email for things I typed frequently, or text files on my desktop.

Now I use this application for things I used  to type over frequently and it’s much faster than having a file you have to open and cut and paste each time.

I hope this was helpful and will help you make marketing your book easier!

Is Your Marketing on Fire?

One of the best marketing books I’ve read is Pyro Marketing.

Author Greg Stielstra says,

I believe the best way to understand the marketing process, the way messages are sent, received, acted upon, and spread, is to think of it as fire. I explain the process in PyroMarketing: The Four-Step Strategy to Ignite Customer Evangelists and Keep Them for Life.

PyroMarketing is a new way to think about marketing—one that acknowledges and accommodates human nature and society’s new realities. But more importantly, it takes the mystery out of word-of-mouth by reducing it to a systematic approach anyone can follow. PyroMarketing involves four simple steps:

Imagine that you are lost in the freezing wilderness (the marketplace), must start a fire to survive (actual sales of your product or service), and that you have only one match (the finite nature of your marketing resources). You may get only one shot at building your fire. So make it count.

PyroMarketing involves four simple, but effective steps.

Perhaps nothing shows the author’s committment to spreading the word than the fact that you can listen or download the entire book at his website as a podcast. This is an excellent book, and though it has some examples of Christian marketing, it’s a book for anyone to read… and learn from!
