Who are the people who can help you sell more books?
I got thinking about this after interviewing an expert for a magazine article last week. My source mentioned that his company had recently acquired another firm that specialized in connecting brands with “influencers” — influential bloggers.
The companies or brands advertise on the blogs or pay the bloggers to write “sponsored” posts about the brand and its products or services.
There’s transparency, of course — the bloggers state that they’be been paid to try and/or write about the brands. Ethics obligate the bloggers to be honest, but so do their relationships with their readers. They know that their fans count on them to provide information they can trust
This is one of those landmark interviews for me because Chris Brogan was one of the first people I followed online.
His book, Trust Agents, shaped the way I run my business, and his video on the 10-year overnight success helped me through difficult times. So I’m thrilled to have Chris on the show today.
In the introduction, I mention the continued growth of audiobooks and my own 2 new books out in audio: The Successful Author Mindset and How to Make a Living with your Writing. Plus the Tim Ferriss podcast on financial freedomand how excited I am to meet so many indie authors down under who are just doing their thing, writing and making money, and ‘no one’ in the mainstream industry and media knows who they are. We live in amazing times!

Cities are collections of neighborhoods — and neighborhoods are powered by small business. From coffee shop owners to fitness instructors, therapists to thrift stores, it’s the people we see in the storefronts next door who build and reinforce the unique character of our cities.

Google Adsense is omnipresent when it comes to monetizing your blog or site. But if you don’t like it, there are more AdSense alternatives to earn money as blogger or website owner. I do agree that Google Adsense has been considered as the best method to monetizing sites from big brands to small blog owners, when it comes to signup, install and earning money.
Do you know your AdSense account can get banned?
Your Google Adsense account has been temporarily disabled or banned!
What a beautiful phrase in an email to start the day huh? Well, keep in mind that you are not alone.
Every day, hundreds of accounts are being banned from Google’s Adsense program. Why? I can not say precisely. Or there’s something wrong on the web that you’re putting ads on, or you just forgot the Google TOS rule.
