The advent of the Internet has made it easier and less costly than ever for writers and editors to connect with a niche audience. It also has dramatically increased the value of their skills, enabling smart writers and editors to reach millions of people, as well as make money doing so, without the backing of a large media company.
During a 60-minute Webinar brought to you by ASBPE, you'll learn from Harry McCracken, the former editor-in-chief of PC World who has since founded the personal technology blog Technologizer, and Joe Pulizzi, founder and chief content officer of the search community site Junta42, how to:
- develop an effective marketing strategy to promote your content
- identify, and participate in, on-line conversations that can help draw audiences to your work
- use social networking Web sites to reach out to on-line communities who are likely to value your expertise
- leverage the power of "free"
- build successful permission-based marketing initiatives
