BLUE THING #10: BACKTALK: Comments From Our Readers

Your Feedback.   Your Input. Your Turn.

by Penny Ng, BACKTALKTM Producer

NEW: At the bottom of every TNNW article, we feature a COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE button. Click on it! We want your opinion on every article and author. Push our buttons. Spark us. Inspire us. Interact with us. We love hearing from you!

NEWER: At the bottom of every article you will now also find a multi-purpose comprehensive social media button which will permit you to forward, email, rate and share articles with all of your colleagues on all of your social media. Forward. Share. Never miss an opportunity to get you name in front of your colleagues, clients and prospective clients -- and you can do this without selling and without spamming!

Sometimes the keys to successful commerce are 1) keeping in touch through regular, enjoyable contact (so that you'll always be on the recipient's mind), and 2) simply being there when it counts. When your client needs what you have to offer, he will give you FIRST PRIORITY. This new button gives you the power to mass communicate and announce your availability and brand. Samples of both buttons follow, but first...


Look at these fancy buttons!


Here are some of your comments on our recent articles published in the TNNW Weekly Newsletter, the Blue Tuesday Report, and our other infomedia, publications and special bulletins:

BETH BARANY: Get Published Now

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Publish Your Book
"It takes a seasoned professional and results oriented player to run the relay race backward and still win...What I mean is that working backward from the finish line can create a map chock full of insight.

One way to out trump and out jump the obstacles, even though often that is not what one wants to see, is to know about them NOW. Overcoming illusions leads you to a closer reality and authentic success, that you as a writer truly need to grow. Unconventional solutions makers can envision the best possible outcome and success for each unique project ..if you are ready and willing to train, one page at a time.

Thanks for the hard facts and reverse psychology exercise Beth....the publishing world is full of illusions and pitfalls. Pass the baton to those who can take the highest hurdle. They can help you with their invaluable experience."



But it's conditional!

If you are going to write a series (Chicken Soup, idiot's guide to, etc.) you want to self-publish so you can control the series and keep the majority of profits.

If you have your distribution covered, and have partners with a proven record of success.

Your book is ready to print (edited by a pro)

If you have one or more published (not self published) authors on the project,

Otherwise, I would say, don't self publish!"

T. S.

"There are different types of books. I agree that if you're writing a novel it should be because you have a story you are eager to tell regardless of the profits you seek from it. You make a very good point about making sure that what you have to share is either unique in that it's never been told or unique in how it's being told or it's not going to get published.

As for business books, that's a totally different arena. So I'm not sure all of your advice would apply."

PETER BIADASZ: Write To Excite

Write Fiction Today!
"Great Article Peter!"
Josh Lakey

"Hi Peter,
I enjoyed your very informative article. Thanks for sharing it."

Ronnie Dauber

"My husband writes brilliant business related pieces, but as far as fiction, his crayon box is empty. Conversely, being an old school project manager, I too write for business, but my strong suit is paranormal science fiction, including speculative, paranormal.

My point is, just because you want to write fiction, does not mean you will be successful at it. But just like painting, everyone should give it a try. I'm just saying.... "

RICK ITZKOWICH: Being There When It Counts

How Can I Help You?
"This is a good article, thanks, makes me think to direct people to my blog rather than the standard real estate answer."
N. V.


Questions to Ask At A Meeting That Includes a Meal
"Fantastic advice, Maria. I am also an introvert so I find it far easier to break the ice by asking questions of others. One that I like to ask is 'So how did you get into [insert business here]?'.

I'm attending a chamber of commerce lunch tomorrow so I'll be keeping your advice in mind. Thanks!"

The Road to No-Where – a Million Dollar Bridge and the Child’s Glacier
"Cool! I can't believe that there is a road to nowhere called Million-Dollar Bridge... Nice stuff!"
