–> If you want to learn more about marketing, if you want to learn to write faster, this column is for you.
As a professional writer, my idea of a good time is learning more about the craft-of-writing. I am a class junkie.
(Anyone else hear the word “vacation” and think, “Oh, a writers’ conference!”? Yeah, it’s kinda sad.)
In fact, I filter everything I read, watch, or vaguely overhear by sheer accident (or good fortune) through my writing-techniques filter. (You know you’re a writer when everyday life gets evaluated against the criteria of “original storytelling” or “research for an article series.”)
So, when I heard about Danny Iny’s new course called “Write Like Freddy Krueger,” I dropped what I was doing (I call this “procrastination for good”), and checked out his new program.
The Good Stuff
Let me just give you the no-cost webinar details up front.
Danny is running a free webinar tomorrow so you can learn more about his Freddy program: Thursday, March 29 @ 3pm EST.
Sign up now, I’ll wait.
Excellent. See you there.
“Without Having To Be a Great Writer”
Why would great (a.k.a professional) writers listen to a webinar or take a course designed for people who aren’t “great writers”?
That, my friend, is a very good question.
Answer #1 Danny’s expertise is marketing.
You have a chance to learn more about writing for the Internet in ways that will enhance and market your, ahem, professional writing.
Answer #2 Danny promises to talk about writing strategically *and* writing fast.
Being focused on the right things and “laying it down” are the very best companions to quality writing, career building, and keeping clients happy.
I met Danny Iny in Corbett Barr’s (of ThinkTraffic) 4-month, expert class on building your website and traffic. At the time, Danny was creating his new website (as co-founder) called Firepole Marketing.
Love that name, don’t you?
Anyway, I’ve kinda kept up with him, because I’m a marketing-geek and he seems like a genuinely nice guy. (I’m building my own world of nice guys who finish first. Come be on my planet.)
So here, then, is Danny’s Official Freddy Curriculum:
(I love the items that are focused on making sure you’ll be a success before you write, writing fast, and then getting the most mileage out of it, after the fact.)
- How to find the very best places to publish your posts (to get tons of traffic, build a great reputation, and make lots of sales)
- What the three criteria are for deciding whether to post on a blog, or whether you’re better off not wasting your time
- How to come up with a winning angle for your post, every single time (even if it’s your first time writing for a new audience!)
- How to know that your posts will perform well and be shared, before you write a single word
- How to write guest post proposals that will get accepted on major authority blogs, even if you don’t have a relationship with the blog owner
- How to choose a headline that will make people read your post – even if you aren’t a writer!
- How to outline an entire post in less than 10 minutes (this is the same process that I use on ALL of my posts)
- How to make sure that you don’t run out of ideas, and your posts are always “meaty” and full of great content and information
- How to write posts that makes people want to print them out and put them on their walls! (that’s the best compliment a blogger or writer can get, and you’ll get it a lot!)
- How to control when a post will be published on somebody else’s blog (and stay out of the limbo of not knowing when or whether your post will be published)
- What steps to take after your post has been published to get waaaay more mileage out of it (it amazes me that nobody thinks to do this!)
- How to get extra SEO “link juice” out of your guest posts on authority blogs
- How your guest posts can help you build relationships with the entire blogosphere (without having to write a ton of posts!)
