Are you an entrepreneur, artist, musician, writer, or blogger who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and how to use social media to your advantage. In his book, Be The Media, he explains how you only need 1,000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!
Be The Media is one of those books you want all of your family and friends to know about — I can’t stop talking about the impact is has had on me. It reinforced my belief that I can make a living with what I love — writing, editing, social media, and blogging. I know so many talented people who are struggling to make ends meet, and I want them to all profit from reading this eye-opening, encouraging book full of invaluable advise and resources.
David has compiled excellent advice on how to keep the rights to your work — instead of having to relinquish them to publishers and labels, studios, distributors, and lawyers — and how to market yourself with the help of no-cost or low-cost social media. He backs up all of his extensive information with contributions and testimonials from leading media authorities and celebrities. Start leveraging today’s new methods of distribution to connect with your audience directly and keep more of your royalties and rights!
David’s resume is very impressive: he is a media consultant, speaker, author, publisher, and hi-tech entrepreneur. He is an internationally recognized media expert with more than 20 years of experience and was the Vice President of Reuters (1994-1999). He sold 5,000 of Be The Media after following up on one connection he made through Twitter. You can follow him on Twitter at @BeTheMedia — he has 31,500+ followers for a reason!
This book is such a revelation that David is now a sought-after speaker who travels the globe and has spoken to the UN twice, and this book will soon be required in many college classrooms. I would love to hear your reaction after reading Be The Media — I am predicting that you won’t be able to stop talking about it either :)
No matter who you are, an entrepreneur, a basket maker, or a mommy blogger, buying this book is an investment in your work, trust me!
Since David self-publishes Be The Media, it is only available through his website. You can get to the website by simply clicking on the book cover below. Take a look, you have nothing to lose — he gives away the introduction to the first part of the book for free.
Buying Be The Media is an investment in your future and your business. It’s the best gift you will have bought yourself in a long time, or a special gift for a loved one or friend who has a message, service, or product he or she wants to promote and make a decent living with. Even better, David donates 20 percent of the purchase price to the nonprofit Common Cause.
