I have tried a new resource for the past couple of months called http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com It has been a great tool so far in promoting my business and helping drive traffic to my websites. This service is growing by leaps and bounds as a new kind of interactive social network where you can produce your own show, be a guest on other shows and build a huge friends and fan base. (these are called “listeners”)

The site is very easy to use and you can build a branded profile similar to a Facebook fan page with HTML codes, clickable links to webpages and automatic Twitter updates. But the thing I like most is the great Google positioning it has been getting for users.

Your shows can be about any subject under the sun. You can book as many shows as you want and they all stay archived on your channel to be listened to by fans at anytime. You don’t have to be a member to hear the shows, you can click out on a Google search result straight to the episode and listen in on the player that BlogTalkRadio provides.

Obviously, some hosts have many more fans than others. By being a guest on a popular show, you can build a following very quickly and lead those listeners to join your fan base. The episodes can be in 15, 30, 60 or 90 minute lengths and you control your show with a realistic looking dashboard with a countdown timer, intro music that you provide and a list a callers in queue that you can connect live as the show progresses.

If your looking for a new type of venue to express your ideas, share with the world your products and services or just want to one-up your celebrity status, this is the service for you. The service is free for a basic membership and upgrades are available for things such as editing your shows and increasing your callers on stand-by list. Check this great marketing tool out for yourself.

You know that public speaking book you have always wanted to write but never did because you would have to pay the printer to print hundreds more than you need and then store them forever in your garage? I have good news for you. Now with print-on-demand, you can have a few or many books printed at a nominal price. This means you can order just enough to sell from your website, at your book signing, at back-of-the-room sales during your seminars, or for giving away to promote your business.

Each book is printed when you or your client orders it and you only pay for the quantity ordered, whether it is one or 1,000. At Antion & Associates, we’re using createspace.com for print-on-demand. It’s a free online self-publishing tool that helps you prepare your book for printing.

While compiling and formatting your book takes time, the actual process of uploading your book to createspace is very simple and consists of three basic steps:

* Enter information about your book into the createspace software.

* Upload a.pdf file of the content.

* Upload a.pdf file of the cover.

After you upload the .pdf files, you can order a proof copy for a few dollars and createspace will print it and mail it to you. As soon as you approve the proof copy, createspace will make it available for purchase and even distribute it through Amazon.com and other outlets. When you or a customer orders, createspace will print as few or as many copies as you want. The price of the book covers the production costs and your royalty.

It’s a win-win because you have no setup fees and no inventory to store. In addition, Amazon offers a lot of tips to help you self-publish your book through createspace.com.

Tom Antion’s Year End 2010 Blowout Sale!

I will put you in business for 47 bucks!

Why would I do that?

Because as my year end blowout sale I want to make sure we both
make some bucks. In my past blowout sales I made a ton and you
got super bargains. Those were great, but in this economy I want
to make sure we both make a ton.

Here’s how it works. I’m going to give you five of my best
selling, high quality special reports/transcripts. You can sell
them or give them as bonuses. I sell them for $29.95 each in my
speaker shop.

Basically you’re getting five ready made, proven products for
$9.40 each. You’d pay at least $275.00 each to have someone write
these for you if you could even find anyone who had this
knowledge.

You could make millions, just like I did, for this small investment in yourself. Check out the video to learn more!

Have I got a deal for you! I need testimonials for my new e-book.


“The Ultimate Guide to Professional Speaking”

(Both beginners AND seasoned pros will get great tips from this book)

The first 100 people who give me “legitimate” testimonials, will get back double the purchase price. Check it out. This is an unheard of deal!

Record in a room with lots of clutter (this is perfect for me hahaha). This reduces echoes and harsh sounding sound.

· Unplug your phones so they don’t ring in the middle of your recording (although you can go back to your last sentence and record over the ringing using your Sound Forge software)

· Turn off your air conditioner/heater. The background noise may be heard on your recording.

· If you have lots of street noises you may want to record in your basement or at a time when there is the least traffic.

· Some people get a long cord for their microphone and sit in the doorway to their closet. Talking toward the hanging clothes makes a really good dead space with no echoes.

Tom Antion: Public Speaking Perks

 

http://www.AmazingPublicSpeaking.com

When you become a top public speaker, you get opportunities to visit and experience historic and highly interesting places around the world. In this video, Tom visited the original site where the opening to The Andy Griffith Show was filmed not once, but twice. The 1960 version was in black and white and the 1965 version was in color.
