Guerrilla Marketing for Writers:100 No-Cost, Low-Cost Weapons for Selling Your Work Jay Conrad Levinson
Finally a go-to guide to creating and publishing the kind of content that will make your business thrive. Everybody Writes is a go-to guide to attracting and retaining customers through stellar online communication, because in our content-driven world, every one of us is, in fact, a writer. If you have a web site, you are a publisher. If you are on social media, you are in marketing. And that means that we are all relying on our words to carry our marketing messages. We are all writers. Yeah, but who cares about writing anymore? In a time-challenged world dominated by short and snappy, by click-bait headlines and Twitter streams and Instagram feeds and gifs and video and Snapchat and YOLO and LOL and #tbt. . . does the idea of focusing on writing seem pedantic and ordinary? Actually, writing matters more now, not less. Our online words are our currency; they tell our customers who we are. Our writing can make us look smart or it can make us look stupid. It can make us seem fun, or warm, or competent, or trustworthy. But it can also make us seem humdrum or discombobulated or flat-out boring. That means you´ve got to choose words well, and write with economy and the style and honest empathy for your customers. And it means you put a new value on an often-overlooked skill in content marketing: How to write, and how to tell a true story really, really well. That´s true whether you´re writing a listicle or the words on a Slideshare deck or the words you´re reading right here, right now... And so being able to communicate well in writing isn´t just nice; it´s necessity. And it´s also the oft-overlooked cornerstone of nearly all our content marketing. In Everybody Writes, top marketing veteran Ann Handley gives expert guidance and insight into the process and strategy of content creation, production and publishing, with actionable how-to advice designed to get results. These lessons and rules apply across all of your online assets -- like web pages, home page, landing pages, blogs, email, marketing offers, and on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media. Ann deconstructs the strategy and delivers a practical approach to create ridiculously compelling and competent content. It´s designed to be the go-to guide for anyone creating or publishing any kind of online content -- whether you´re a big brand or you´re small and solo. Sections include: * How to write better. (Or, for ´´adult-onset writers´´: How to hate writing less.) * Easy grammar and usage rules tailored for business in a fun, memorable way. (Enough to keep you looking sharp, but not too much to overwhelm you.) * Giving your audience the gift of your true story, told well. Empathy and humanity and inspiration are key here, so the book covers that, too. * Best practices for creating credible, trustworthy content steeped in some time-honored rules of solid journalism. Because publishing content and talking directly to your customers is, at its heart, a privilege. * ´´Things Marketers Write´´: The fundamentals of 17 specific kinds of content that marketers are often tasked with crafting. * Content Tools: The sharpest tools you need to get the job done. Traditional marketing techniques are no longer enough. Everybody Writes is a field guide for the smartest businesses who know that great content is the key to thriving in this digital world.

Savvy Book Marketing Strategies for Busy Writers Who Don´t Have Time for Marketing: Angela Booth
The indispensable classic on marketing by the bestselling author of Tribes and Purple Cow. Legendary business writer Seth Godin has three essential questions for every marketer: ´´What´s your story?´´ ´´Will the people who need to hear this story believe it?´´ ´´Is it true?´´ All marketers tell stories. And if they do it right, we believe them. We believe that wine tastes better in a $20 glass than a $1 glass. We believe that an $80,000 Porsche is vastly superior to a $36,000 Volkswagen that´s virtually the same car. We believe that $225 sneakers make our feet feel better-and look cooler-than a $25 brand. And believing it makes it true. As Seth Godin has taught hundreds of thousands of marketers and students around the world, great marketers don´t talk about features or even benefits. Instead, they tell a story-a story we want to believe, whether it´s factual or not. In a world where most people have an infinite number of choices and no time to make them, every organization is a marketer, and all marketing is about telling stories. Marketers succeed when they tell us a story that fits our worldview, a story that we intuitively embrace and then share with our friends. Think of the Dyson vacuum cleaner, or Fiji water, or the iPod. But beware: If your stories are inauthentic, you cross the line from fib to fraud. Marketers fail when they are selfish and scurrilous, when they abuse the tools of their trade and make the world worse. That´s a lesson learned the hard way by telemarketers, cigarette companies, and sleazy politicians. But for the rest of us, it´s time to embrace the power of the story. As Godin writes, ´´Stories make it easier to understand the world. Stories are the only way we know to spread an idea. Marketers didn´t invent storytelling. They just perfected it.´´
