So I’m teaching this course beginning after Labor Day. Why? Mostly because I spent the last year trying to figure out this thing called internet publicity and how it affects book sales and discovered a whole bunch of cool things that I want to share with everyone.
This is the first class and what I want is to make it as interactive as possible so we can tailor what you *love* about the internet to what you want to do to get the word out about your book/blog/life. 🙂
To take the class, all you have to do is click on the “join yahoo group” button at the end. That will bring you to the class loop and it’s on your honor to send the check to the right place. Class begins September 6th (after Labor Day) and concludes October 4th.
So…here’s the official blurb on it!
Workshop: How Screwing Around on the Internet Can Lead to Fame (sort of) and Fortune (Sort of.)
Instructor: Corrina Lawson
Description: With the plethora of social media choices available and seemingly the same amount of information out there how to use social media to best market yourself on the internet, it’s becoming almost impossible to sort them all out.
This course is about how to use what you love best about the internet to your advantage instead of spending countless doing something you don’t enjoy just because “you’re supposed to.”
