Next week I’m attending and speaking at IBPA University in Portland, Oregon with 30+ educational sessions including experiential learning labs, insightful keynotes, a gala book award ceremony, fun networking events, and so much more. I spoke at the event in San Francisco a few years ago and found it to be quite an advanced group of presenters, exhibitors, and attendees. No fluff to be found, anywhere! If you’re there, catch me in the hallways, at my session on Saturday, or in the Ask the Experts sessions. If you didn’t sign up, it’s sold out, but put it on your radar for 2018. Also, www.IBPA-Online.org is a great organization and worth every cent in wisdom, discounts, and connections. I’ve been a member for years.
Saturday at 3:45 I’ll speak on Cool Tools to Make More Money through Direct Selling to take a look at tools that can help you market, sell, and grow your fan base. You’ll learn about pay-what-you-want pricing to leverage the power of free without sacrificing profit. Get tips on generating a monthly income with a subscription to your works-in-progress and beta books. Also find out how to pre-sell books, booklets, articles, serials, courses, audio, and video. These tools are easily integrated into your website and let you listen and respond to readers, attract and reward fans, and sell directly (alongside distribution channels like Amazon and Ingram) to earn additional income.
Dang… I’ve got some pretty serious competition, including my longtime buddy Joel Friedlander, a lawyer, and the IBPA town hall.
Shoot me a line if you’ll be there so we can be sure to meet in person!
