Top 5 Reasons a AYUGHF Needs a Promotion Plan

Congratulations! You’re an As Yet Unpublished Golden Heart Finalist! What are you going to do now? (Please don’t say “Go to Disney World” That was so last year!) 😀 My hope is that “Develop and Implement a Promotion Plan” is at least on your top ten list of things to do before RWA National, right up there with “Find the Perfect Dress” and “Book a Flight”.

This month, I’m going to do a three-part “Top Five” series on Promotion. Today, I’m going to give you the top five reasons you need to have a promotion plan. Mid month, I’ll talk about the Top Five things that should be in that promotion plan and how to implement it, and then late in the month we’ll talk about the Top Five things you should consider for your website.

So, without further ado, I give you the Top Five Reasons You Should Have a Promotion Plan Now.

Building Your Cyber Home

I don’t know about you, but my day is not complete without, ahem, researching on the Net. Author sites are at the top of my list of places to visit. I’m of the opinion that it’s essential to have some sort of Web presence if you’re an author, even if you’re not yet published. It’s the easiest, most cost-effective way to reach out to readers, and just like that disembodied voice in Field of Dreams chants, “If you build it, they will come.”
