Book Authors Have The Opportunity To Host Shows On Blogtalkradio-lightscape

Internet-and-Business-Online BlogTalkRadio.. – an internet radio "station" that offers anyone the opportunity to host his or her own show for free – is an ideal opportunity for book authors to promote their books. To begin with, no technical knowledge is needed. You simply sign up at BlogTalkRadio.., follow the directions, and you can be.e the host of your own live show. You don’t even need a microphone. You call into a number at BlogTalkRadio to be the host, and your show guest – as well as show listeners who want to ask questions – call into the same number. Show listeners can also "chat" questions during the live show. Wait you say! How do you think of topics to talk about? Let’s answer this by taking two imaginary book projects. We’ll take both a fiction and a nonfiction book project. We’ll imagine that Janice has a novel titled "Sally Smith Confronts Her Ghosts" – and the book centers on a protagonist who realizes she has undiagnosed PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and seeks help. When the help fails her, she goes on a quest to cure herself. Janice decides to have the 30-minute show "Confronting Your Ghosts" once a week." She invites mental health professionals as guests on the show. Sometimes the topic is PTSD, sometimes eating disorders, sometimes any number of "ghosts" that people face. At the beginning and end of each segment, Janice announces that she is the author of "Sally Smith Confronts Her Ghosts" and gives a brief blurb about the novel. Then Janice uses her weekly show to get more exposure for herself on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and the other social media sites on which she is a member. She tweets and posts Facebook updates about the guest topic for that week’s show. Now what about Paul, whose nonfiction book "How to Speak to Your Plumber" provides tips on how to speak the language of the various repair people you use in your home or office. Paul starts a BlogTalkRadio show with the same name as his book – "How to Speak to Your Plumber." Each week Paul has a person from a different occupation as the show’s guest – an air conditioning repair person, an upholstery cleaner, a fence builder – talking about information for that specific specialty. And, yes, Paul also uses his social media accounts such as Twitter and Facebook to get the word out about his show, which gets the word out about his book. One of the benefits of doing a BlogTalkRadio show is that, after doing the live show, the recording of the show is available on your show’s page for downloading. People can listen on the site – and guests can download the show onto their own website or blog. Build a fan base for your BlogTalkRadio show by offering quality content, and you’ll have a weekly platform for promoting your book. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
