What’s the secret to writing success? Two words: marketing plans.
I create marketing plans for different products each month. For example, one of my marketing plans for April is to promote Fab Freelance Writing Ezine.
Why create marketing plans?
1. They’re essential because they work — they make sales
2. They stop procrastination
3. They allow you to track what’s happening with your writing.
For example, Stan’s a new writer and a Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) subscriber.
Stan’s on Lesson 8, and for a beginner, he’s doing brilliantly. He’s written articles for two clients, and has two testimonials. Now’s the time for Stan to spread his wings, and to promote his article writing services by creating a marketing plan for his article writing.
A marketing plan takes a minute or two to create. Then all you need to do is to slot the tasks into your calendar program, and work on each day’s task as the day arrives.
Stan’s still working a day job, so he asked me to help him to create his plan, and to schedule the tasks. He’s now done that. Here’s what he wrote: “I can’t believe it — four days after creating my plan, I’ve got FIVE new clients and projects.”
Yes, of course, marketing works. However, as I wrote to Stan: “That’s great, but do keep doing your marketing tasks, no matter how busy you get. Your marketing is cumulative, and the more marketing you do, the more your income will rise.”
So if you haven’t created a marketing plan yet, start today.
