Have you ever heard you can use your book as a business card? That is the general consensus with those who work with authors in any manner.
Most authors want to get their message out into the world and have no other basic desire except to speak to groups about what they have written about. When an author gives their book away to an audience, they are able to build a following of those interested in who they are and what their message is.
Often when authors are speaking, the event planner will prohibit selling to the audience, so giving the books away in exchange for the name and email address is more than a break even proposition.
Almost everyone will value the name of a new person in their database because they know the return is an average of $10 a month. And that is just the beginning. When you are able to build a database of interested parties, you will find they will bring you years of financial returns.
There is the purchase of audio programs, future books and even participation on your membership site that will have your bringing in income for your intellectual property. It goes well beyond your book.

After writing six books, well okay, five books and a children’s book which was the most fun to write! Anyway, I made a conscious decision to find a way to make my book stand out in the more than 100,000 books published each year.

I’ve taken more classes in the past five years than I had in the previous 20 years. Yet, the effort finally paid off. The light bulb came on and I understood that there is no one magic bullet, but a series of tactics that has to be applied.

And that is what Creative Impressions Press is designed to do!

There are more than 34 techniques with mp3 files to help you understand the various concepts. I will be loading more mp3 files that are interviews from various mega successful authors, so be sure to check in all week and download the files to your iPod!

One of my favorite interviews is with Deepak Chopra. Everyone assumes his rise to success was overnight. Wait until you hear the interview!

If you’d like to listen to Steve Harrison’s teleseminar class, just send me an email.
