Market Your Book with a Movie Trailer

http://delicious.com/akarrer/prospeaker

Animated Trailers My first encounter with movie trailers for print books--rather than films made from books--was the VidLit for John Warners Fondling Your Muse. A VidLit may be an excerpt from a book, or a synopsis. The VidLit team does a nice job of making nonfiction books seem entertaining as well as edifying. You can see the resulting trailer, which increased his book sales 30%, at www.JeffRivera.com.

James Comey's "A Higher Loyalty" - Books Still Power Tools

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Establishment media and high-school English teachers were among those which used to debate: Can one book be  the  force of change in a society?  However, books still can be power tools. But, with so much more competing for attention, that book has to be positioned and packaged just right for the times. James Comey's "A Higher Loyalty" meets those criteria.  Otherwise, the book will die a humiliating death of low rankings on Amazon.

The Man Is Sticking It to Those Over-35 - Tender Mercies (for some) During Gov Shutdown

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That's a lot of us because more of us have opted to plug into that system at age 62. No, usually we can't make ends meet solely through Social Security. Here , free to download, is my book on that. This week The Wall Street Journa l chronicled how the work world is sticking it to us aging. About 8 million of older professionals are unemployed or in low-quality jobs. Essentially, age bias is kicking in at age 35. Yes, 35.

Humor Spotlight: Learning from Brad Montgomery

Speak and Deliver

April is Humor Month here in Speak & Deliver , so when I found out I'd have the opportunity to see Brad Montgomery "Funny Motivational Speaker and Meeting Energizer" speak for free, I jumped at it! The meeting is a networking function, and about 30 of us introduced ourselves and what we did before he spoke. Later in the meeting, he questioned the man's willingness to admit he'd had nothing to do on Thursday mornings for 42 years ( charter member )!

Public speaking from the Staines snowball to confidence-boosting in a cafe!

Nick R Thomas - A Public Speaker's Blog

My first talk in May was back here in Bournemouth, a presentation about Patrick Campbell for the Bournemouth and District Group of the Civil Service Pensioners Alliance , who meet at St Michael's Church Hall. My last booking for them had been in March 2006 and they were a very good audience on both occasions. It was good to finally meet him after being aware of his name and work for so many years. This is especially likely to happen when it's an annual meeting.

Speaking of Chris Brogan Speaking.

Speak and Deliver

The sub-opening story about meeting people in-person for the first time after only knowing them online works very well, and could easily be moved up as a true opening to break the ice, build familiarity, and be interesting all at the same time. Last week, Chris Brogan posted a video of his speech to the Inbound Marketing Summit in Boston.

Bye-Bye Boring Bio: Attract Clients, Speaking Gigs & Media Interviews Now.

Fripp THE Executive Speech Coach

The public relations consultant says she was compelled to write the book, now in its second edition, because of how frustrated she was with the information her clients were providing to her "with the idea that I could take that and make headlines with it." Juetten has special advice for speakers: Lead with a compelling headline that lets the meeting planner know exactly what you talk about, why it matters and the key take-away your audience is going to hear.
