How to Get Corporate Sponsors

Want a corporate sponsor to fund your work?

If so, you’re invited to a free web class where you’ll discover how to…

Reach a much bigger audience for your work almost overnight.

  • Hitch your wagon to organizations with instant name recognition and huge infrastructures that already know how to market to their audience.
  • Grow your following and business by 100-250% without spending your own money.
  • Go on a national product launch, book or speaking tour and have most (if not all) expenses paid for by someone else.
  • See your work promoted on a major corporation’s website, Facebook page and to millions of people on their email list for free.
  • Get a Fortune 500 company buy your book by the caseload so they can give it to their employees and customers.

The above are not fairy tales!

This happens all the time because many companies and organizations sponsor authors, entrepreneurs, experts, and speakers just like you.

You’ll learn from an author/speaker who landed sponsorships with FedEx, Bank of America, Microsoft, Wal-Mart, Dun & Bradstreet, Wells Fargo and many other companies and organizations.

Go here now to register for the call!

Here’s some of what you’ll discover:

  • Sure-fire ways to find the companies most likely to sponsor you.
  • 5 things corporate sponsors will fund for you. (During the webinar, you’ll discover how to get your biggest dreams funded, including publishing a book.)
  • The true reasons why big corporate sponsors provide funds you never have to pay back (once you know this it opens up a whole new world for you!).
  • Want to turn your painful past into a powerful book or live event that
    sponsors will support? You’ll discover how a woman with a breast cancer memoir secured sponsorships from several different companies. Plus, how another woman emerged from a painful divorce with the desire to inspire other women just like her. She got a major company to pay for her entire event!
  • How corporate sponsorships can help you get your life back in order.
  • Why would a sponsor ever give money to a complete “nobody”? (On the free webinar you’ll discover 12 reasons corporate sponsors give money to unknowns — and if you tap into just one of these, you too can get corporate sponsorships for your idea.
  • The secret to persuading a company to give you big money especially if you are not good at selling yourself. HINT: write a killer proposal that does the selling for you! We’ll show you how.
  • Avoid this HUGE mistake! Most people ask for too little money, so companies don’t take them seriously. With sponsors, the bigger your dream, the better. We’ll show you how much money to ask for.
  • No book? No problem. While many on our free web class will be authors, you don’t need a book to get big companies to take you seriously and fund what you’re doing. On the web training, we’ll show you how a woman got Verizon to pay her to go around the country to speak.
  • Some of the many fatal mistakes people make when approaching a sponsor, and how to avoid potential deal killers.

  • In addition to money to fund your program or platform, you’ll discover 4 additional benefits and advantages of getting a corporate sponsorship. (Some of will turn out to be more valuable than the money they give you, and will open up new opportunities for you).

  • 5 specific low-cost and no-cost strategies you can offer corporate sponsors that will make you stand out from all others trying to get corporate sponsorships (almost nobody thinks about simple things that can be the difference between collecting a big or small check from your sponsor).
  • The exact amounts of money you should ask corporate sponsors for. Most people don’t ask for the proper amount of money! (There are 4 key price points you must target, and odds are, they’re much more than you think you’d ever get).
  • 2 things many people do wrong when approaching a sponsor for the first time that automatically get them rejected for sponsorship. (The good news is, they’re easy to fix!).

3 Ways to Write Your Book Faster

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

books

Are you working on a book?

Just imagine how you’ll feel when you write the last sentence of it.

“I’m finished!” you’ll exclaim.

And then just think how excited you’ll be when you say to your friends and family, “I finished my book today!”

Imagine them congratulating you and saying, “Let me know when it comes out. I want to buy a copy!”

Some will say, “What, you really wrote a book? I didn’t know you were a writer.”

You’ll even enjoy proving a few of your skeptics wrong.

You did it!

And you did it the RIGHT way.

Since you took the time to listen and learn from the experts, you now KNOW deep in your gut you have a book that is marketable and media-genic.

You’re feeling a confidence in your message and yourself that you haven’t felt before.

That’s what The Quantum Leap Program will do for you.

More than 1,327 students from around the world have used our training to better refine, promote, and monetize their books and messages.

Today I want to share with you a few thoughts and strategies that Quantum Leap coaches use to help people like you write your book even faster and make it even better.

But before I do….let me ask you a question:

Just how serious are you about changing people’s lives with your message?

If you have a big desire to make a big difference and you haven’t even asked to receive all the details about The Quantum Leap Program, may I suggest there is a disconnect there?

Doesn’t it make sense to at least find out about all the ways my team and I can support you in becoming the successful author you want to be?

Get on the Priority Notification List so you can be among the first to apply in the upcoming Quantum Leap class and we can help you get your book done, as well as achieve other goals you might have.

Okay, now that we’ve taken care of that, let’s talk about how to get your book written faster.

If you were one of the people who registered for the recent teleseminar on “Bionic Book Writing,” you heard about how Debby Englander and Steve Harrison LOVE pulling people’s books out of them, faster than they ever dreamed possible.

There are different ways to do that.

For example, you might have heard one of the clients on the call share that the process of writing her book really took off when one of the writing coaches helped her create a title she was really excited about.

Do you have the perfect title for your book yet?

It’s very hard to come up with great ideas all alone because you’re so close to it.

But having at least a “working title” is enough to give you focus and excite you to move forward and keep writing. A better title may surface later.

One technique Debby didn’t share on the call is what she calls the “Chinese Menu Approach” to creating a title.

If you’ve ever gone into a Chinese restaurant in New York you’ll discover they offer a special where you pick one thing from column A and another from column B.

Take a sheet of paper and divide it into two columns.

Write a list of titles on the left hand side and a list of subtitles on the right.

Then mix and match different combinations.

You’ll be amazed at the new title combinations you generate.

That should get you a good working title until someone like Debby can work with you, one-on-one, to create a KILLER title!

Steve and his team will also support you by helping you create a great framework.

Ever notice how fast a new house is built once the wood framework is in place?

Same with your book.

Having a good framework is critical.

There are different frameworks for books just like there are different floor plans for homes. But you MUST have one.

For example, what is the framework for Chicken Soup for the Soul?

It’s a collection of 101 stories.

Most authors struggle because they don’t have a good framework.

Or worse, they have the wrong one for their message and goals.

Once you have a good working title and a solid framework, you’ll be able to plan each chapter.

This stuff is really hard to do all by yourself.

That’s why most would-be authors never finish their book.

Or they take a lot longer than necessary, only to produce a book that is not nearly as appealing to readers and the media as it could have been.

People are always showing me their books to get my advice and I often think, “Boy, I wish we could have worked together sooner because there are so many opportunities you missed.”

One last thing.

Throw out the notion that you need to write your book the same way that someone else does.

You are YOU. There is only ONE of you. And there will never be another YOU ever in the history of the world!

Another of the Quantum Leap coaches, Ann, helped Tony Robbins get one of his books written. She’s especially good at helping people who feel more comfortable talking than writing. Once you have a good working title and a solid framework, she’s shown many of my Quantum Leap clients how to talk their book in just a few days.

For one-on-one help from Ann, Debby, and our other coaches, apply for one of the open spots in the upcoming class of The Quantum Leap Publicity & Marketing Program!

5 Ways To Boost A Brand’s Star Power

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

5 Ways to Boost Your Brand's Star Power

In a new AdWeek article, ‘5 Ways for Brands to Ignite Star Power,’ William Morris Endeavor agent Jessica Thomas reveals 5 ways to boost your brand’s star power:

  1. Be open-minded. ‘It’s easy to be set on using your favorite celebrity, but that person may not resonate with your consumers,’ she says.
  2. Find someone with an authentic voice. ‘Seek an existing evangelist, someone who already has an affinity to the brand.’
  3. Look beyond a pretty face. ‘Hire an artist to be a creative partner, not a shill.’
  4. Empower your spokesperson by having them participate in the creative process. ‘It will provide talent with a sense of ownership in the campaign’s success, drive home the authenticity of the association to your audience and it will give your brand a unique opportunity to leverage the voice and perspective of a talented celebrity.’
  5. Ask the right questions. Do you want to emphasize digital? Do you want household name recognition? Do you want someone who can create recipes or beauty tips and tricks?

Read more of Jessica’s tips in the original AdWeek column here.

Author Susan B Mead

After her son passed away, Susan B. Mead decided to write a book but knew nothing about publishing or marketing books. However, she was determined to get her story out to the world and help others. She’s since gone on to amazing success helping people overcome tragedies in their lives.

“7 and a half years ago I lost my youngest son and my world turned upside down, and in that chaotic moment, peace stepped in. I want to help others find that peaceful spot and that wonderful place where they can be calm, effective, capable and step out of the darkest holes of their life and into greatness.”

Today, Susan has 2 stunning websites… over 37,000 Facebook fans, over 85,000 Twitter followers and over 20,000 Instagram followers!

susan-b-mead-twitter

Even better, when she launched her book, Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace, it immediately hit #1 on Amazon’s Christian grief category.

How Susan she get such great results? More importantly, how did she take a personal tragedy and turn it around to help thousands of others who need her help and advice?

Watch this video where Susan shares how she made her Quantum Leap!

One common thread we’ve seen is that most authors and speakers use a difficult event in their lives to help others get through difficult times in theirs.

Steve Harrison has worked with authors who’ve lost husbands and children… abused and battered wives… people who were once wealthy and lost it all to unscrupulous business partners… in fact, you name a problem, and he’ll show you a brave soul who has used that strategy to help thousands of others.

If you have a story to share that can help others overcome challenges in their life, perhaps it’s your calling to get it out there.

But of course, there’s the stumbling block of actually writing the book, getting booked on speaking engagements, building a platform, creating a social media presence, and on and on.

Don’t let your fear of computers or the Internet keep you from sharing your message to the thousands or millions of people you can help. You can follow Susan’s footsteps. See what she did to succeed and how she overcame the hurdles in this video. Enjoy!

P.S. – Want Steve Harrison’s team to work with you over the next year to see your goals become reality?

Apply now for a spot in Quantum Leap and get started!

P.P.S. – Susan was a prize winner in the annual ‘I Made A Quantum Leap’ contest. When you join Quantum Leap, you too will have the chance to compete in the annual contest and celebrate your progress!

How To Sell Books To Libraries

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Are you selling your book to libraries?

If not, you’re missing a big opportunity!

Libraries are the biggest, untapped source of ongoing revenue for authors (both unknown and established.)

In fact, did you know you can make up to EIGHT TIMES as much per title selling to libraries compared with what you get from Amazon?

Many authors wrongly assume libraries are ‘old school’ and few people visit libraries these days. But actually…

40% of Americans visited a library last month. Only 5% went to a bookstore.

And library budgets are going up!

Budgets for many libraries are over $800,000.00 per year. And in cities serving populations over 500,000, library budgets average $4,437,000.00 annually.

Year after year, libraries get millions of dollars in fresh cash to buy books.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg why libraries are a hidden source of revenue for authors.

To discover how to get started selling to libraries, join us this Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 for a free webinar on how to sell thousands of books to libraries.

Go here now to register for the call!

On the webinar, Amy Collins (who has helped more authors sell more books to libraries than anyone else) will reveal:

* Insider secrets and little-known strategies for selling books to libraries Amy has learned working with top publishers and book wholesalers.

* 3 key factors that make libraries more profitable for authors than bookstores (especially for building a lucrative passive income).

* Haven’t published or written your book yet? No problem. You’ll discover simple guidelines that guarantee librarians across the country will start buying your book as soon as it comes out. This also works for ebooks!

* The step-by-step process librarians go through when purchasing books (most authors don’t know this system).

* What kinds of books libraries buy and how you can benefit no matter where in the publishing process you are.

* How to start with just one library then make your book sales go viral into libraries across the country.

* How to use a library to get free publicity for your book (you don’t even need to go into the library!)

* How to get libraries to SELL your book. (Libraries don’t just lend books, they sell them now, too!)

* The ‘attitude’ strategy for getting libraries to not only buy your book, but also invite you to speak or hold a workshop with their community.

* How to use the library to increase sales of your book on Amazon (on average you’ll sell 22% MORE books!)

* The ebook licensing secret that can build an incredible ongoing passive income for you year after year.

* The very first thing you must do to get your book into a library.

* The EXACT time when you must present your book to libraries (this drastically increases your chances of getting libraries to promote your book).

* The #1 mistake authors make when  trying to sell their book to libraries.

* 5 little things all librarians want to see from you that will increase the chances they buy your book. (You can cover all these in one simple email!)

* All librarians have 4 goals they want for every book they buy. Find out what they are!

* 5 categories of books (and ebooks) libraries buy most often (plus the 4 types they always avoid).

* The #1 category of nonfiction that libraries buy (you’ll never guess what!)

* The 8 biggest wholesalers who sell books to libraries (you’ll get the names of the wholesalers during the webinar.)

* How and what to write in an email to a librarian that will catch his or her attention and make you look like a pro.

* The library money trail and the secret of how to license your ebooks to libraries for an avalanche of book sales.

* Plus much, much more!

How to Speak in Sound Bites

Friday, March 11th, 2016

How do journalists and TV producers decide whether to interview you?

It often depends on who provides the best sound bite.

Have you ever watched a talk show when the guest (sometimes a celebrity) seems oblivious to the fact they’re on live TV and only have a short amount of time?

Their message often gets cut short by a commercial break, often awkwardly.

Many people take ten sentences (or more) to say what they could in one.

Developing the ability to speak in sound bites is easy if you know a few key techniques and tips.

Here are 6 tips for creating memorable sound bites when pitching the media:

1) Keep it short. Say what you have to say in one or two sentences, no more.

2) Be specific and vivid. In an interview with BusinessWeek, Donald Broughton, an analyst for Avondale Partners, was talking about the stocks of two railroad companies: Union Pacific and Burlington Northern.

Notice the language he used to make what would otherwise be boring memorable for the journalist interviewing him:

“It’s one thing if you steal dirt from my front yard, and it’s another if you break into my house and take my sterling
silver,” Broughton said. “For six quarters, Union Pacific’s been walking around Burlington Northern’s house and taking as much silver, jewels and flat- screen TVs they can get their hands on.”

That’s speaking very specifically and vividly. It’s no surprise that all of the different analysts that journalists could quote, they quoted Broughton. He knew how to speak in sound bites.

3) Express a solid opinion. Many people are afraid to voice their opinions because they fear that others will disagree. But people who are good at giving sound bites know that the media are looking for strong opinions. If some people don’t disagree with what you’re saying, you’re probably not saying much.

When Warren Buffett was interviewed about the tax President Obama wanted to levy on financial corporations, he said, “Look at the damage Fannie (Mae) and Freddie (Mac) caused, and they were run by Congress. Should they have a special tax on Congressmen because they let this thing happen to Freddie and Fannie? I don’t think so.”

His willingness to express a solid opinion got him quoted. But did you also notice how he made a comparison?

We’ll talk about that more in a minute.

Robert Thompson is a professor of TV and pop culture at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, and one of the most quoted professors in the world.

In fact, in 2007 the Associated Press referred to him as ‘the most quoted man in America’ next to the President.

He is so good at giving sound bites that he’ll sometimes get 60, 70 or even 80 media calls in one day. If you Google his name, you’ll see he has been quoted virtually everywhere, including more than 40 times in the New York Times in just four years. How does he do this?

“Unlike many people in his position, Robert almost always finds an angle or perspective I haven’t thought about,” says AP television writer David Bauder.

4) Repeat the same word. In describing Paris Hilton, Thompson said, “She’s the non-story that keeps on being a story.”

When giving advice about investing, Warren Buffett said, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”

5) Compare something to something else that everyone already knows about.

In describing Katie Couric’s debut on CBS Evening News, Robert Thompson said that her first broadcast would be “some of the most scrutinized frame-by-frame video images since the Zapruder film (of the JFK assassination.)”

By using a comparison to an example everyone is familiar with, he was able to make his point in a memorable way.

6) Speak in metaphors. When talking about Fox News, Thompson says, “they want to be the David of David and Goliath, but they are the Goliath.”

When speaking in this type of short metaphor, Thompson makes his point in a way that gets the media to pay attention and quote him, rather that someone else.

It’s critically important to use sound bites when pitching the media, in press releases and being interviewed by them.

They’ll be grateful, and you’ll be thrilled with all the media coverage you receive!

As a gift for being here, I’d like to offer you a free 28-page PDF report that reveals 10 proven strategies for getting the media attention you deserve.
