The Super Bowl is long over. A 50 year Sunday traditional, looked forward to by countless in a party atmosphere that is global each year. New was is in: The venue was new—Santa Clara, California and the logo was new—Roman Numerals were replaced with regular numbers—did you notice?In 2016, what kind of Super Bowl can you create or your book?
- How about a party (of several) in its launching, or re-launching?
- How about a re-purposing, creating a variation or an existing book that springs a new one
- How about creating a video product that you can sell along with your book for added revenues? How about starting a podcast?
- How about creating a Group on Facebook or LinkedIn that positions you as the leader/expert in your topic manner and building new followers/fans who ask questions, add to discussions, create a community?
- How about planning on creating a series of press releases throughout the year announcing events and achievements around your expertise and your book?
It’s wintertime, but your ideas and happenings don’t have to be in the cold. As an author, or author-to-be, it’s time to think SPRING is coming … it’s time to thaw out ideas and bring them to life. It’s time to think about “newness” … what can you add to your mix that could just be the tipping point for both you and your writing?
For me, I’m committing to a series of HOW TO VIDEOs based on my years of work that I will finally package and sell. Before January was over, I bought the software and platform to create them. This month I “learn it” and next month … well, let’s just see what starts to roll out! I’m excited. Doing this has been on the “create new product bucket list” for some time now. Long overdue to stop thinking about it; stop talking about it; just doing it.
