Do you send out press releases? Have they brought you financial
rewards? If not, you may want to rethink how to write a good
one-one that editors pay attention to. If editors noticeand love
your press release, they will want to interview you for a feature
story. The feature story not only gets you valuable attention, it
also brings credibility to you, your products, and your services. It
is seven times more valuable than advertising.

For example, in a large city daily newspaper, your feature story
can get editorial space worth anywhere from $1500 to over
$5000 in "free advertising." This space is worth seven times as
much as an ad because it implies the newspaper endorses you.

You have only seven seconds to impress, so be sure your news
release has an outrageous heading that includes a benefit. Then,
be able to prove it. What do you think of these? "Design Every
Part of Your Book as a Selling Tool," "Double, even Triple your
Online Sales Through Outrageous Headlines," from which I
created this one my Web site: "Double, even Quadruple your
Web Sales Through Opt-in Ezines"

The San Diego Union-Tribune responded to my press release
with the headline "Seven Sure-Fire Ways to Sell More Books
Than You Ever Dreamed Of" by giving me space that would
have cost $3000 if I had placed an ad. Funny, they didn't even
interview me.

The columnist created her own story.She used this heading:
"Workshop Guides Novice Book Authors." One of her highlights
said, "seminar participants might be the next John Grisham."

My phone rang off the hook for over a week. I hired an assistant
and we took over 100 calls and collected over 60-email
address. To each of the latter I sent my monthly eNewsletter
"The Book Coach Says..." and got four new book-coaching
clients worth thousands of dollars over the next six months. At
the same time, my assistants sold 25 books and kits at the back
of the room.
