Booklet Power for Making Your Communications Profitable

Have you heard of the famous Booklet Queen Paulette
Ensign at Tips Products International?

Paulette continues to publish impressive and helpful
tips booklets on subjects from soups to nuts. For
example, my client Barbara Morris contributed to “Tips,
Tools, and Resources for the Second Half of Life” and
my writing/editing colleague Janice Campbell sent a
booklet “How to Create Credibility as a Freelancer” to all
members of N AI WE . Both feature bite-sized tips from
14 subject-related experts to provide a goldmine of
immediately useful ideas.

Paulette’s latest tips booklet “Communicating for Profit, 70 Tips for
Coaches, Consultants, and Service-Based Businesses” has special appeal

  • The 70 tips target the exact areas that my clients and I delve into
    every day, and
  • It features my tips on how to write persuasively.

The booklet’s focus? How to transform your communications into profits.
Here’s a smattering of headings: “Web Strategies That Win”; “How to
Write Faster”; “Selling with Customer Success Stories”; “Newsletters:
The #1 Marketing Tool.”

If you’d like a copy of this booklet—at no charge—send me an email at
editor@barbaramcnichol.com with Tips Booklet in the subject line. It’s
available in both PDF or printed form. Please remember to send me your
snail mail address if you prefer the printed version.

Jerry D. Simmons- Contents of May 6, 2010 TIPS FOR WRITERS FROM THE PUBLISHING INSIDER

      May 6, 2010 – TIPS for WRITERS from the PUBLISHING INSIDER is a free bi-weekly eNewsletter published by Jerry D. Simmons. Readers can access additional information for free at his web site www.WritersReaders.com, the PUBLISHING LIBRARY for WRITERS & AUTHORS where we take pride in Preparing Writers for Success.

       Hopes, Dreams & Reality – by Jerry D. Simmons

       Anything is possible in publishing, dream big but follow a few simple rules.

      Enhanced e-Book Apps Anticipate a New Generation of e-Readers – excerpts from an article online at Relaxnews

       With the release of the iPad, enhanced e-book apps are becoming a hot trend in publishing, with many major publishers announcing plans for enhanced titles.

      The Potential is Staggering – by Jerry D. Simmons

       The big questions for everyone in New York publishing houses regarding eBooks have been: How to improve the viability of an eBook over print?  

        It Doesn’t Take Many E-Book Sales to Make a Kindle Bestseller – excerpts from an article by Sarah Weinman for DailyFinance.com

       For the past two years, Amazon has been exciting consumers and frustrating book industry types with its puffed-up press releases about the strength of Kindle and e-book sales.

      Still Important – by Jerry D. Simmons

      I enjoy bashing Amazon as much as anyone but frankly they are now and will continue to be a major player in online sales of print titles and eBooks for the foreseeable future.  

     So Far, E-Books Aren’t Making Sales Waves for The New York Times – excerpts from an article by PHYLLIS KORKKI

      The publishing industry’s alarm over the electronic book isn’t based on current use.  

      Making Waves – by Jerry D. Simmons

      At this point in the development of the eBook market, sales do not in any way reflect the bestseller lists for print titles.  

     Former Book Designer Embraces e-Books – excerpts from an article by Michael W. Jones for Tech.Blorge.com

      In the mind of at least one person long involved in the aesthetics of the book publishing industry, people often place too much emphasis on the medium containing the words rather than the content created by the words.

     Everyone Will Eventually Join the Parade – by Jerry D. Simmons

     This is just another example of how the future of publishing will look.  

     Publishing is built on “perception” and you improve your chances at success by making wise decisions.  If you have questions about digital product or the market for eBooks, please send an email Jerry@WritersReaders.com.
