Looking for an additional way to create income while marketing your book at the same time? This is our 6th tip in the series on marketing your book with a blog.
Tip #6: Podcasting — create audio files easily by scheduling teleclasses and recording them. Some people like to get their information auditorily and at their convenience by downloading mp3 files to their iPods or other mp3 player. Or, you can podcast chapters or excerpts from your book.
Use a free teleconferencing bridge line like http://www.freeconference.com to host a group call.
Record your call, upload the audio file, and then post to your blog or podcast using a service like www.audioblog.com.
As an added benefit, you can get these calls transcribed; then convert the word doc to a PDF file which you can either give away, or sell, in exchange for people´s email address (remember Tip #5? You must collect email addresses so you have a list of interested people who want to hear from you when your book is published). www.CastingWords.com is a fast, affordable transcription service.
