Product Give-Aways & Reviews--

I have been asked to review two new products by IndieBizChicks.com.

Product Review #1:

The first is an online booklet called, "How to Get Great Press." It provides valuable information on how to construct and write a press release and then how to distribute it effectively.

As a professional journalist, I have received and written countless press releases. I know first-hand of their immense value and importance in getting your product or service out to the media. Media companies are always in search of great content. Press releases provide a quick, easy and fast way to draw attention to your business. Knowing how to write one that will actually get noticed is extremely important because media agencies receive myriad press releases a day.

The IndieBizChicks book, "How to Get Great Press" is an essential tool for those looking to increase the awareness of their business. It is written in a simple, easy-to-understand language and covers all the important aspects in constructing a press release. All the details of the release are covered along with giving you templates to work from as well.

Also included is a list of Web sites to submit your press release to. They've already done the research for you! They also offer great advice on building your media contact lists.

In addition to the instructions on how to write a press release, they also have included valuable information on how to assemble a Press Kit and why you should have these and whom you should send them to.

Please, take my word for it! This is a GREAT value and they make it extremely affordable at $14.95.

However, we are GIVING AWAY one "How to Get Great Press" Workbook to one of our lucky readers! (Including the audio press release class and a Bonus Workbook, "15 Tips for Building Buzz Around Your Business")

Product Review #2:

The second product I was asked to review was, "How to Give Good Blog."

WOW!!! This is a must-have for anyone that has a blog that promotes their business or products.

Crissy at IndieBizChicks has put together a list of some incredible tips that are each detailed on how to implement the ideas to help boost your blog's traffic and business. If you're unfamiliar with blogging or how that could benefit your business, IndieBizChicks has provided all the answers you'll need.

Blogging is essential in online businesses. There are millions of blogs and millions of blog businesses, so how do you get yours to stand out?

I operate a couple of blogs and started as a blog business and know the value and hard work it takes to get your blog promoted. I did all the research and hard work with trial-and-error and WISH I would have had access to these 50 tips (from the bonus workbook, "50 Ways to Promote Your Blog") when I started.

You will see an increase of traffic just after implementing a few of these tips.

An increase of traffic will increase sales. You also will learn ways to make even more money with your blog.

In addition to the workbook, you'll also receive access to audio elements from the expert herself!

You definitely don't want to delay in getting this online workbook of a wealth of knowledge. Your investment will be well worth it and will reap great returns!

This is also available for $14.95.
