The A-List Book Premiere – Launch Your Book Like A Celebrity

You’re just finished you latest masterpiece and your publisher is waiting on the final draft. The champagne is still on ice and you’re wondering what will happen after the launch party. Will sales take off? Will there be a sequel? All these thoughts run through your mind as you close the final chapter…

These days if you want to make a big splash with your book then you have to learn how to promote like a celebrity. When celebrities open a restaurant, write a book, start a new clothing line, or even spend a few nights in jail, everyone always finds out about it. They’re able to use the attention they get to promote just about everything they do.

Fortunately you won’t have to serve any time or perform community service just to get your book noticed. Thanks to the internet and sites like MySpace and Facebook, you can build your own community of friends that you can share stories, ideas and communicate in way that allows you to connect with thousands of people who share your interests.

In some ways it’s like becoming a celebrity. As a result you can use the attention you get to promote your book. But like any great launch you should always plan everything from the start, especially before you start writing. Here are a few things you can do to ensure a great launch:

Use Social Media To Promote Your Book

Early on setup accounts in places like Amazon, Facebook and Myspace to grow your network of friends. Social media is a powerful force in these days in online marketing and you should take advantage of it. Once your book is ready for release, you can announce it to all your friends online. Just like a gossip magazine, if your book is good (or even controversial) people will start talking about it and buying it to see for themselves.

Start Your Own Blog

This is another great way you can get attention. Blogging also allows you to interact with anyone who likes reading your blog. You can update your readers on your progress, discuss ideas, get feedback and find out what’s really important to your audience.

Conduct Virtual Book Tours

Virtual books tours are a great way to sell more books since you can reach thousands of people at one time and never have to leave your home. Also unlike traditional books tours, you aren’t forced to spend time and money traveling from city to city hoping there will be enough people at the venue to buy your book.

Have Follow Up Products Ready To Go

The best time for you to make a second sale is right after the first one. This can be an audio tape, a seminar ticket, a workbook or even past books you’ve written. Make it easy for customers to purchase your other products by directing them to a website or giving them a free bonus when they register online.

Create A Compelling Promise

In other words create a compelling paragraph that powerfully describes the benefits and advantages of your book. It should be no longer than 4-5 sentences. You’ll use this whenever you describe your book to potential customers and joint venture partners. If it’s a fiction novel, be able to tell the main plot in 4-5 sentences.

Except for virtual book tours, you should do of all these months before you actually finish writing your book. That will give you time to grow your audience and add more friends. It will also allow you to join other online communities and build great relationships before your big launch.

Of course there are dozens of other things you can do to market your book online. To learn even more strategies and discover how you can do months of research for your books in just a few hours just visit [http://www.Researchwizardpro.com/bookmarketing] to claim your free gift.

Launching New Cars in India

The Indian car market is the second fastest growing one in the world today. This is due to the large Indian middle class that keeps waiting for and buying the upcoming cars in India.

In the early 1990′s, when the Indian government started the economic liberalization policy, it was difficult to imagine that it would turn out to be an important event in the history of the country. Since then the whole economy of India has undergone a sea-change. Now almost every sector of the economy is growing. Some industries, however, have outperformed others. One such industry is information technology. Since the liberalization of the economy, India has emerged as a major power in the information technology industry. Many Indian IT companies have a businesses worth millions of dollars. The young Indian workers are benefited by the outsourcing of work to India from Western countries.

A lot of companies have started to operate out of India as they offer some distinct advantages. These include low labor cost and presence of the well educated, English-speaking middle class.

Another industry that has done quite well for last few years, is the auto industry. Almost all global auto makers have their presence in the Indian market. General Motors, Chevrolet, Ford, Hyundai, Honda, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Skoda, Nissan, etc have made their presence in the Indian car market. Several of them also have their manufacturing units in the country. They are taking advantage of the country’s cheap labor cost and liberal policies. It is also helping the Indian market a lot. The Indian government is earning lots of revenue, and the Indian people are getting jobs. Indirectly, this economic activity is resulting in job creation.

As the auto market is getting competitive, car makers keep launching new products every other week. It is also resulting in more options for car buyers in the country. The upcoming cars in India include Chevrolet Beat, Fiat Bravo, Audi A5, Nissan 370Z, Skoda Yeti, Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai i30, Nissan March, etc.

Chicken Soup For the Soul Supplements – A Look at the Company, Products and Compensation Plan

With over 100 million readers, many people have heard of the book series by Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield. Their goal with the books was to heal the heart and soul of the masses. Recently I stumbled across a range of supplements going by the same name, and couldn’t help but look into it further. Here is what I discovered.

The company

New Health Systems LLC, in conjunction with Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen launched Chicken Soup for the Soul Supplements in early 2006 in Colorado. They teamed up because they are all committed to helping others improve their quality of life, and feel great on the inside and out.

The products

Chicken Soup for the Soul Supplements cover a range of health, wellness and weight loss products including:

Women’s and men’s vitamins priced at $39.95
Chocolate Silk, Vanilla Crème and Berry Comforting – meal replacement drinks priced at $34.95 each
Energess – energy lift supplement priced at $39.95
Daily Calm – stress relief supplement priced at $39.95
Body Firming Crème – priced at $69.95
There are also a number of different packs available ranging in price from a few hundred dollars to over $1300.

The business opportunity

There is an affiliate program available. To begin earning commissions as a new affiliate, you must make an initial qualifying purchase PV value of $100 or more. The compensation plan is uni level, and is not a breakaway. Commissions are paid at 10% – 43%, depending on what level you are at.

Conclusion

Based on the success of the books, the company launched its supplement division as a $1.3 billion company. So you would certainly have an established name behind you. I believe that to make a substantial income from this, you would need to sell lots of product and sign up lots of people. I also believe that to really get ahead, you would need to have a good understanding of internet marketing.
