Just another note, if I try to add a reply to a discussion from my iPod it gets "stuck". Here it goes right through.

Thanks Diane. I took a look and I will consider this. Hmmm, looks like I should start a discussion on high points of write to the bank material. Have to get some writing done tomorrow first! Have a deadline to meet. Thanks for the video Kent. Do you use Camtasia?

Joanne, 

One more item! I visited Michael Hyatt's site today, and he has a new vertical slider at the top of his Home page, promoting his two books on writing book proposals (Fiction and NF). Here's the link if you want to check it out:

Just posted a video above on the difference between the Comment Wall and the Discussion Forum in this group.

I hope everyone watches it. I promise, it will help you use this group more strategically and effectively.

Joanne,

Great questions...

1.  Comments will not disappear...but they are in chronological order. So, a year from now, to find these comments you'll have to do a lot of scrolling.  Discussions, however, are different.  All the comments are made in one place and all you have to do is find the discussion. What's more, when someone asks a certain question, often I will simply point back to a past discussion (i.e. link back to a past discussion).

2.  To add a discussion, see the attached jpeg picture. All you have to do is click on the link circled in that jpeg.

3.  As for following discussions, you should get an email when a discussion is posted just like when a comment is posted. However, unlike the comment wall, if you do not comment on the discussion or go to the discussion and click on "follow this discussion," that will be the only email you receive about the discussion. This keeps you from getting bombard with emails.

Hope this helps!

P.S. I have my settings so these replies come in via email. Would the discussion forum work in the same manner?
Comment by Joanne Banko on December 19, 2011 at 9:36am
Dear Kent, I appreciate your information. Yes, there are so many marketing strategies in our fast paced world. I do believe it is good to follow the KISS standard. I most certainly DO NOT want to waste precious time and energy. You suggestions helped me focus. Thank you. As far as discussions go, I really have not warmed up to the whole 48days format. There seems to be a lot going on in different areas. To start a discussion would one simply click on the add discussion link. Also, are you saying that eventually this area goes away while discussions are archived?

Joanne,

Two quick things...

1.  As for marketing your book, over time you'll probably find 2-3 ways that really work well for you. Don't try to learn everything, just figure out those few marketing strategies that you really enjoy and go deep with those strategies. Personally, I sell 80-90% of my books via speaking. But I don't just sell them in the back of the room...since I've gone deep with this strategy, I've learned all kinds of ways to sell books via speaking and even how to use books to get more speaking engagements. So again, figure out a couple of strategies you enjoy and go deep with those strategies.

2.  This is just a thought for everyone in our Write It Forward group. This is the kind of conversation that would make a GREAT discussion in our Discussion Forum. As you can see, a lot of people commented on it. The sad thing is that the details of this conversation will get lost over time because we cannot link back to the Comment Wall like we can the Discussion Forum.  Just a thought for where future conversations should go.

Okay, that's it for now. Looking forward to hearing more about the success of your endeavors!
