Trash Proof News Releases – Definitive Guide to Getting Publicity and Media Coverage

Trash Proof News Releases - Definitive Guide to Getting Publicity and Media Coverage

TRASH PROOF NEWS RELEASES is a tool designed with one specific goal – to get you publicity in your target media that achieves a return on investment that rivals and even exceeds your best marketing. It offers media everything they need to run with the story using you and the resources you’ve arrayed and meet their needs in today’s fast paced environment and ever changing technologies.

Praise for Paul Krupin’s Trash Proof News Releases

In Trash Proof, Paul Krupin once again displays his unique ability to cut through the fluff and provide actionable advice right from page one. This book goes way beyond the competition. I would recommend it for the novice through the experienced publicist, to the “do-it-yourselfer”. There’s something valuable here for everyone.

– Barbara Kimmel, Publisher and Publicist

Wow! A results-only guide to getting free coverage in the media. This is the BEST book on the subject out there! The examples are priceless!

– Joe Vitale, author “The Attractor Factor”, and many other books

Updating his classic “Trash-Proof News Releases” for the Internet era, Krupin once again provides extremely useful guidance (successful press release formulas, journalist interviews, and plenty of examples) useful to both novice and experienced seekers of media coverage–including do-it-yourselfers who don’t do PR for a living.

– Shel Horowitz, author of Grassroots Marketing for Authors and Publishers and other books

Inside Secrets to an iPhone App

Inside Secrets to an iPhone App

Have a great idea for an iPhone app but don’t know any programming? Inside Secrets to an iPhone App tells you exactly how to tap into the lucrative iPhone app market.

The books offer page after page of practical advice … via the author’s own personal journey. Carla White created the popular Gratitude Journal app, which has been praised by well known sites such as Macworld and Life Hacker. Apple even secured the rights to feature my app in their advertising.

The book is available for download at iphoneappsecrets.com for $13.99, along with two free bonus books: “Interviews with the Best”, which shares conversations with the makers of iSteam, Classics, Weightbot, and the best-selling app of all time, Koi Pond; and, “How to Successfully Promote Your App”, which is full of tips and tricks on how to market an app on a shoestring budget.

For several months, Carla spent every morning from 5 to 7 a.m. working on “Gratitude Journal” before heading to her day job. The total cost for her project? Just $500, an amazing feat when you consider that it can cost upwards of $100,000 to create an iPhone app.

“Gratitude Journal” (happytapper.com) was released in December 2008 and immediately shot up to No. 2 in the Lifestyles category of iTunes’ App Store, where it remains a popular download with nearly all five-star reviews from users.

Over eighty pages of insight written by someone who created a successful iPhone app without learning a bit of programming. You also recieve two free gifts.

Media Savvy in the Internet Era

Media Savvy in the Internet Era

Who do you turn to? You!

There is little room for the status quo or traditional tactics as business and organizations strive for authentic leadership in these challenging times, and beyond. More than ever before, companies will rely on the media—mainstream and the fast-evolving online New Media of Web 2.0—as they seek to build brand awareness, leadership positioning, new opportunities to engage in trust-building conversations with customers and stakeholders, and, ultimately, better financial performance, sales and results.

  • Do you want news of your organization to be heard above the competitive racket?
  • Do you want to capture the media’s attention when the time is right?
  • Do you want media coverage that translates directly into enhanced reputation, shareholder value and greater sales?
  • Do you want your messages and vision to be reported clearly and accurately?
  • Do you want to connect, engage and have dialogue with your stakeholders, prospects, customers, employees and friends?
  • Do you, as an executive, want to be accurately quoted by the media in a way that boosts your own value and visibility?

Then, read on. But be prepared to consider bold new directions.

Lose Control of Your Marketing

Lose Control of Your Marketing

Do you market like the Grateful Dead? Or like Led Zeppelin? (Find out in the ebook).

Here are some other things you’ll find inside:

Return On Investment Makes You Boring

“For many executives, an obsession with ROI is just a convenient excuse to shy away from something new and untested. Yet that’s exactly what the best ideas for creating a World Wide Rave are—new and untested.”

“If you’re obsessed with ROI measurements that worked in an offline world, then you’re just making an excuse. If you worry about losing control of your message, then you’re making an excuse.”

Sales Leads Are The Wrong Goal

“For decades, companies have offered Web content as lead bait. But the goal should be to get the word out about your organization, not to misuse the Internet for the sake of an outdated technique.”

“For your ideas to spread and rise to the status of a World Wide Rave, you must give up control. Make your information on the Web totally free for people to access, with absolutely no virtual strings attached.”

What Do You Have To Lose (But Control)?

Tribes Q&A

Tribes Q&A

Forward from Tribes Q&A

How do you learn?

Do you need a step by step playbook, or do you do better with stories?

Perhaps you prefer a detailed analysis to a sketchy do-it-yourself overview…

Multiple learning styles are a given. What’s not is the way authors respond to this biological diversity. Usually, we write one book, our way, and leave it at that. If you don’t learn that way, tough.

I had this in mind when I asked the thousands of members of the Triiibe to write their own book, this book, based on my book, Tribes. It’s not the same as my book… in fact, it’s very different. It’s a book I could never have written, though perhaps (maybe) it’s a book you’d like to read.

My suggestion is that you take a look at the printed book first. Or just dive in. This PDF is free. Free to read, free to print, free to share. You just can’t re-sell it. If you like what you’re hearing, feel free to contact any of the authors within. They’ll probably be thrilled to hear from you.

To anyone reading this: enjoy. And to the tireless team that wrote it: you’re amazing. Thank you.

MicroISV Sites that Sell!

MicroISV Sites that Sell!

You’re a developer that against all the odds have created a commercial desktop app or web service, working long hours to create something you can be proud of. But you’re not a marketing person, a suit, one of those people who somehow makes sales happen.

Good! I wrote MicroISV Sites that Sell! – Creating and Marketing your Unique Selling Proposition because developer-to-developer I wanted to demystify one of the strongest, fairest, best marketing design patterns reputable software companies can use to substantially increase their sales.

Design Pattern? You mean like Gang of Four, the way programming gods write software design pattern? That’s exactly what I mean. The Unique Selling Proposition is just that – a proven, deployable, debugged robust way of helping your prospective customers get the value of what you have to sell.

Now there’s a bizillion ebooks out on the net promising you Money! Money! Money! – all you have to do is send them yours first. So how do you know MicroISV Sites that Sell! is worth your $19 and much more importantly your time? Because I beta tested it with a group of people who know their stuff and have a zero tolerance for Internet Marketing BS.

Here’s what a couple had to say (more on 47hats.com):

“The smallest software startups rarely have in-house expertise in marketing, and they end up making common mistakes that scare customers away. You see this again and again among the small ISVs: no contact information on the web site, laundry lists of features without explaining the benefits, bad graphic design, and more. If you’re a MicroISV, Bob’s ebook will pay for itself with the first extra sale you make.” – Joel Spolsky

“The latest from Bob Walsh offers concise advice on some key things every microISV needs to do, complete with a discussion of real examples. Recommended.” – Eric Sink
