A #SharingwithWriters Multi-Level Lesson on Making a Single Promotion into a Work Horse

My precious #SharingwithWriters visitors and subscribers know that I love to share promotion that work on several levels. 
Here is one I did with WinningWriters.com that speaks to a long relationships.  So, lesson #1. Those who advertise for us writers or invited us to be guest posters for their blog or feature us on a podcast are (or should immediately become ) part of our networking team. Once something lovely happens to us or or books, that information goes immediately into our contact files (that's number 2!) and it's up to you to #3 return the favor at some point and a little later #4, pitch an idea where you can help them with content (or whatever else occurs to you).  Scroll down to the section with blurbs that Adam Cohen, principal at Winning Writers, chose to use for this ad for his email list that goes out to writers monthly--all part of his free newsletter subscription program. Hint: None of these blurbs are new. They are all gleaned from reviews (in this case old ones, but they could be new!)  Let's see, that would be #5. So now I go about letting those who gifted me with blurbs or reviews about this blog where they get more exposure for their books or other pet projects. It's a carousel that never need run out of energy! If this blog post (Adam's ad!) gets you started on a carousel of your own, I hope you'll let me know the details, (Number ???)  maybe refer back to this post with a link (Number ?) , and maybe we can work it into another article for this blog or just a quick tweet (Number ??).
