Website Marketing: Great Web Sites and Beyond (The Promotion of the Web Site Is Essential!)

Patricia Norins, editor of Gift Shop magazine, and I will be doing a Webinar on how to reach more people by integrating your online marketing and how to save time by doing that very thing. It’s at 10 am Pacific Time on Thursday, August 12. The fee for the Webinar includes a copy of my book Your Blog, Your Business: A Retailer’s Guide to Garnering Customer Loyalty and Sales Online and In Store (www.budurl.com/Blogging4Retailers ). The Webinar is priced $79. But my Sharing with Writers blog friends can pay only $49 for it by entering the code “starvingwriter.” Don't use caps or quotation marks.

Go to http://www.retailconferenceseries.com/  . This is the second in a series of Webinars. Did I say that attendees get a free book? (-: Did I tell you I love Webinars. You get the visual and the auditory benefits. Not quite like being there in person, but close.

And, though this Webinar is angled toward retailers, I have a new mantra. Marketing is marketing is marketing. What is good for one industry work for another. So I hope to see some of my promotion-savvy author friends take advantage of this offer.

Did I mention that I love working with Patricia. She believes--as I do--that personal contact is important. Webinars, in their way, help us do that.
