can you promote yourself if people don't know how to
find you? Here's something that can help all of you creatives
bury the rotting carcass "starving artist"
right now. It is a myth that we have impinged upon ourselves
for so long that it seems to have wrapped it's insidious talons
into the very DNA of our cultural psyches.
Let's burn and bury it now! There is no reason
that this mythology need continue on. The very business model
and even "heartless" technology is making personal
abundance attainable to all people.
cutting to the chase, here are some free ad sites where
you can write and promote yourselves…for free:
Just check out these sites. There are so many
other places too. The list goes way beyond what I can make time
for. I mostly use EzineArticles and USFreeAds.
The others are great also. Take your choice.
are in an age of abundance and so many options! It's
just that, as a people, we are still stuck in the dreamland
of poverty and limitation consciousness. We believe we still
have to work for "the Man."
all of you creatives can really make use of these resources
to further your careers. It can serve as a great adjunct with
whatever else you might be doing to promote yourselves.
But do you know how to use the computer you are sitting at to
get your name out to 1,000 people, to 10,000+ people? Or?
the technology to help yourselves!
are so many free sites to post to; forums,
free blog sites, YouTube, MySpace, etc. etc.
not let money or lack of it prevent you from making
money. Do your research. Understand the concepts of basic marketing,
about keyword research and knowing where to market yourselves.
is not complicated. It comes down to this:
a hungry crowd
simple. It is the preponderance of techniques that
will kill you though. Just so much to choose from. KEEP
IT SIMPLE! Choose one approach, make a plan and follow
you're a creative like me with little business and
marketing background, then it's so easy to feel stuck in the
mud, living in a world that seems to be so business dense.
now keep it very simple: I write short ads as an affiliate
(free), post the ads and affiliate links to
article or ad sites (free); and when someone
reads the ad and clicks on the link and purchases from the linked
site, then I get the commission. Plain and simple, it
may not be new information to a lot of you, but keeping up with
the fine but simple nuances of keyword and market research is
info that needs to be part of all artists' marketing arsenal.
if you want to save yourselves a ton of time and wasted
running around in circles, check out the site, called
Affiliate. It is run by two guys named Kyle and
Carson. Go to their promo page for the "Who
loves money guide." Their customer service
is beyond great.
give personal coaching whenever I have a question that cannot
be solved through their forum. And the forum itself is worth
gold! It is the most positive, supportive, highly knowledgeable
internet marketing online community I've ever encountered.
Ok, enough of what may sound to you like so much hype.
The main thing is action. That's what I've come to
learn. Act with a plan though. Don't waste time. If you're an
artist (actor, musician, painter, writer, etc.) there
is no such thing as "starving artist." Strike
that from your consciousness! Burn and bury it now, and create
with the vision and passion that is at the bedrock of who you
again, as I get off my soapbox.
the power of the internet to do good and to also promote yourselves,
your art, music, writings, etc., will prove to be a most powerful
ally if you just take the time to understand its powers and
limitations. There's no need to get swallowed up by information
overload, to get overwhelmed by the shear volume of info and
all of the "latest techniques" on the web.
not too late to get on the internet marketing bandwagon. It's
not really all that complicated!
