He called me for book publicity and here’s what happened.
Ok, so he tells me he wrote a book.
What is the book about?
My days in the slammer.
Not bad, I think to myself. A life lesson learned type of interview. Could be good.
So I ask him, what are the themes of the book?
The message. What would you like to tell everyone?
How I didn’t do it. I was framed.
Well, that’s not something I can help you with.
But wait, I don’t want to talk about that.
I want to talk about what it was like behind bars.
OK good. Hoping to get the ball rolling I asked, what was it like behind bars?
I wrote a book.
And . . .
I wrote a book.
So, if I booked you on a radio talk show to have a conversation that would interest the audience, what are some of the topics you would like to discuss?
I wrote a book.
OK, homework time. I told him to take some time to think about the deeper meaning of the messages of his book and how they can apply to the world we live in.
This took him by surprise. He thought if he wrote it that would be it.
We would all buy it and life would be good.
But no, with the self-publishing industry surging ahead writing your book is only the very first step. Now, it’s time to compete for sales and authors tell me that this part is not always fun. They spent too much money they did not really have for practically no return on investment.
But what if you could get booked on LIVE radio talk shows to share your message and be heard all over the country? And what if the shows were the big ones in the big cities and you were able to blanket the nation with the nationally syndicated shows? And what if appearing on the shows gave you an ROI? That is, you got something for your money? What if you:
- Added power to your media bio by adding big show names to your resume?
- Got calls for speaking events or other opportunities from someone who heard you?
- Got lots of conversation for social media messaging so you can share content not those constant “buy me” messages?
- Realized how important your voice and message is and that you can help change the world?
- Felt alive, energized and every day was a chance to light up the world again?
Yes, gimme that radio campaign.
I thought so.
