Thanks to everyone who participated. The free ‘Author Interview’ is now closed for this group. You can always find me on Fiverr.

Hi Ericka,

We are already friends so I guess I’m just going to go ahead and ask for you to add me to the list of the people to interview.

Thank you for this great opportunity,

Hi Everyone

Last day for the Free Author Interview Promo. You do not have to have your interview questions completed by today, but you do have to send me the friend invite here on 48days so we can get the process started.

Hi Everyone,

I have a service that may just interest you. I created a new Blog called “Plan2Win-Author Interviews”.  In a nutshell I will send you interview questions, you answer them and send them back to me.  This is great for us DIYs who do not have an established list or group but would like to build attention to our name and new book outside of our small circle. It is one book promo per interview.

Is this free? Yes, for this group for next three days only (July 20-22) this is in appreciation of you being so encouraging over the years.  Next, I will offer this promo to my E-learning and Teaching Online Group.

What do I have do? Glad you asked. Just “Add me as a Friend” here on 48days and let me know you are interested in the Author Interview.  I will send you back the questionnaire. It is a fillable document.

Here is the link to my Blog:


Some of you may know, I am a seller on Fiverr. Now, this is a new Fiverr gig for me.  You can check it out here: https://www.fiverr.com/plan2win/conduct-an-author-interview-for-my-...

If you miss my free promo days you can always find me on Fiverr.

Hi Eva, my target will be the homeschooling market. Great advice about the hashtags. I will start a general discussion to know if anyone is using a free gift opt-in to build their email list. 

Comment by Eva Pauline Scott on July 8, 2015 at 7:18pm

Oops, I meant you could add hashtags for the homeschooling market. (This area doesn't let you edit.)

You might want to set up something above in the "add a discussion" so all of the comments for you are in one place.

Comment by Eva Pauline Scott on July 8, 2015 at 7:17pm


If you don't specify, you may get people who respond who like math instead of just homeschoolers. If you want to get into the homeschooling market, you could add hashtags.

Another idea is to make more than one of these with different hashtags (if you have different entry points on your Website. You could have a separate page set up for each hashtag. Then you might find a different market than you think, or more than one.

Hey Terry,

Welcome to the group here and the ONE Family. No worries about stalking me. I've been around long enough now that I'm actually really excited when folks find me and learn about how we have built and continue to grow ONE Extraordinary Marriage.

Hope 48Days.net and the group have been helpful to you so far.

Hey Ericka,

Thanks for PlaceIt. That is fantastic and something I need to look into more. Seems like you can purchase one offs and not have to get a subscription. That would be best I think for most of us here. 

Lots of options too. Thanks again.

Hi Everyone:

I am in the process of list building and came up with this idea. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  I would use this on my social media sites to build my list to create the sales funnel for my homeschool book and homeschool class.  I don't say anything about Homeschool or Childs on the picture, is that too broad? I was thinking to just have the hashtags be for homeschool, parents, children, teaching etc...
