You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to articles and blog posts that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. Some weeks there are more pointers than others.
This week I’m pointing you to pieces on voice-to-text software, reaching influencers, and creating online courses.
“Just how much progress have computer systems made in understanding the human voice? I don’t mean recognizing specific commands, like the hands-free Bluetooth in your car. I’m looking for a tool an author can use to write a book without typing. I want to know how well a computer can understand people when they just talk to it. And the answer is, ‘not very well.’”
Wally’s Comment: Thanks to Joel Friedlander for pointing me to this post. Read the comments as well as the post for more value.
“I’ve posted about how to find your book’s ideal audience before, so I won’t wander down the same trail. Instead, I want to look at another piece of the marketing map that can greatly improve your success rate with reaching your audience: influencers.”
“If you write non-fiction in particular, creating an online course is a great way to expand your book into a higher priced product that gives even more value to your customer and brings you another source of income.”
Sources I Check Regularly
