Quotations as Promotion

Every once in a while I like to drop in one of my fave tips from my Sharing with Writers newsletter. Doing so does two things. It affirms my advice that recycling what we write is a good marketing technique (because it saves time and because frequency is an important tenet of marketing). It also encourages visitors to this blog to sign up for this newsletter for valuable tips (and inspiration) like this one. Please sign at www.howtodoitfrugally.com. The sign-up form is in the upper right column of every page of the site. Note: There is a freebie for doing so!

Writing/Promotion Tip: As you edit your work, notice the little quotable gems within it and use them on Twitter to increase interest in what you are doing. Quotes are supremely re-tweetable, too. (_:
