Way to go, Brian! It’s exciting when a fellow author hits publication day and can announce the official release of his book: Lead Generation for the Complex Sale (McGraw-Hill, ISBN 0071458972, $24.95).
2.0: the new way to publicize your book release
- press release
- podcast [direct link to MP3]
- Amazon blog (or is it a “plog”?)
- email blast to colleagues
Just got an email from Brian with a link to today’s press release about the launch. (He uses PRWeb which I’ve also used and recommend highly. Inexpensive and reliable; your release gets picked up by Google and other news sources.)
Cleverly, he’s also released a podcast [direct link to MP3 file, 7:41 mins, 7.1 MB] through PRWeb Podcast. (Wish there were an interim download page for the podcast.)
Note that Brian has a big-name publisher, McGraw-Hill. These days, that isn’t enough. You’ve got to market your book as imaginatively and aggressively as if you were self-published. In fact, proving that you can do that is one key piece in getting a book deal.
About the book
Brian sent me a preview copy. It’s a handsome hardcover that packs in everything you could possibly want to know about creating and sustaining a lead generation program. If you’re in big-time sales with long lead times — or managing anyone who is — you gotta have Brian’s book on your desk. Order on Amazon.
