"Many an opportunity is lost because a man is out
looking for four-leaf clovers."
If you've been getting Editor's Notes for awhile you know that I believe a strong web presence is vital for selling writing. Whether you self publish or go with a traditional publisher, you will sell more books if you promote your work yourself.
You will also know that I advocate recycling your writing. Write a book, then write magazine articles on the same topic and use the articles to promote your book. Take that one step further. Become an expert in your field and sell your expertise on the web.
In mid-May I am teaching a course here in Gibsons on how to use knowledge to make money on the web. You can't come to the course, but you can get in on the promotions I've arranged for those who will take the course.
I will be sharing the stories of people who've used Site Build It! creatively to build sites that draw traffic and make money for their owners. I will also share basic principles of how to build a site that will stand out instead of disappearing into cyberspace. The truth is, almost everything I will share I have learned from the support materials I got when I bought my Site Build It! web site. (And all of you know about me because those things work so well.)
I have permission from Sitesell to offer a 2 for 1 sale for 10 days to coincide with the course I'm teaching. So from May 12 to 21 when you buy any Sitesell product, you can choose a second product of equal or lesser value for free.
Before I send you off to check out all the products you can choose from, you must know that there are special instructions in order to take advantage of this offer. Normally you can purchase your Sitesell products on-line and that's it. This time there is another step in order to get the 2 for 1 deal.
Email me with the following:
Your first and last names
Your email address
Your order number (It will be in your "Get Ready" email.)
Date of purchase
If you buy a second SBI! site for someone else (What a great gift idea!), include the full contact information for the person receiving the second site.
Once the promotion is over I will send all the information in to Sitesell and they will deal directly with you from there.
Please note that you will not see any reference on the Sitesell site about this promotion. This is a special promotion I have permission to run for only 10 days. Everyone else is paying full price for everything.
Set aside some time to visit the Sitesell site as soon as possible so you can decide which products you want and get your orders in while the promotion is still running.

I have just finished reading a great book on punctuation. Sounds dull, I know, but it's funny and beautiful. I'll give you details in the next newsletter.
If there is a topic or resource you think will benefit other Editor's Notes subscribers let me know and I will include it in a future issue.
