Few people I talk to consider themselves authors; fewer still ever picture themselves writing a book. Well, if you’re still undecided about whether a book can propel you to expert status in your field, consider a scene of two people who walk into your office each seeking your business. Each has impeccable credentials, is wearing a tailored suit, and has an impressive resume that sparkles with confidence and great talent. […]
If you’ve decided to become an expert in your field, in any field, allow me to show you how much faster that process can be – and how much further you can reach – through the publication of a well-written, carefully-planned, readable and entertaining book.
Books provide what I call “portable expertise.”
Anywhere a book can go, you can go. Yes, there are more high-tech ways to reach your audience, but when someone’s wi-fi isn’t working, your book still is. When someone’s at 30,000-feet and can’t use their laptop yet, he or she can still open your book.
In a bathroom stall, in a parking garage waiting for an appointment, at a corner café with a cup of coffee, in bed late at night not wanting to disturb their spouse, in an elevator, your book goes anywhere they can go; and if you have a book, so do you. […]
Getting your company noticed in this tough economic climate has become harder than ever before for many companies. With mounting competition and shrinking budgets, the question arises: how do I let consumers know that my company exist, on both a national and a local level?!
While national media exposure is ideal, there is great power in local media exposure as well. By focusing on your hometown media outlets you will be able to build a solid base of fame and recognition from which to grow on. Creating as much “buzz” as you can locally will compliment your national campaign to no end and it also gives you invaluable media experience when the national media starts to knock on your door. […]
Buying the ‘small stuff’ has always been in the woman’s domain. Part of her domestic duties as wife and mother has been to keep the family healthy, warm, and well nourished. From the family meal to the family doctor, from shirts for her husband to shoes for her kids, chances are those choices have always been hers. […]
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, when you appear on television and are at the top of your game as a guest, it can completely change the dynamics of your business as well as your life! I’ve seen it happen many times with clients who know and love this medium! […]

Not many will disagree with the fact that talk radio is a fabulous promotion tool. What author wouldn’t treasure the opportunity to speak directly to consumers who may be interested in purchasing their book, product or service? Sounds great, right? […]
Last week I sent you Part 1 of my interview with Lee Habeeb, a friend and business associate who is a “Talk Radio Coach to the Stars.” To refresh your memory, Lee currently coaches 7 of the top 10 talk show hosts in America; people like, Michael Medved, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt and Bill Bennett. He also developed “The Laura Ingraham Show” and was Laura’s Executive Producer for many years. […]
People have always liked getting more for less. And, during a recession, retailers are known for pulling out all the stops. For example, one local car dealer is offering a 2-for-1 car special – buy one used car, and get one of equal or lesser value for free! […]
As talk radio “insiders” we know what the hosts and producers are currently thinking about. Right now, they are gearing up for the pre and post holiday season. Why? Because most producers and hosts go on vacation during the holidays and as a result their show goes on “hiatus.” During this hiatus they run “best of” shows instead of new programming. So in the run up to their vacation, hosts and producers are deciding: who they will be interviewing as guests in December, which shows they will re-run during hiatus and finally who they will be interviewing during the first week of the New Year. The final point is very important to them, as the last thing they want to do when they come back from vacation is to have to scramble for guests.
The advantage for our clients is that we not only understand the timing and scheduling of […]
