The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 1/13/17

Jan 13, 2017 | Resource Lists

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 podcasting and Amazon KDP ads.

From Joanna Penn: Seven Years And 300 Episodes. Creative Lessons Learned From Podcasting Since 2009

“I started The Creative Penn podcast in March 2009 as a way to learn about writing, publishing and book marketing as well as make connections in the industry. I recorded the first interview with a landline phone on speaker and a hand-held recording device. It was a pretty terrible start but hey, it’s improved! I had no idea the show would continue this far, or that it would help the community so much, or become a cornerstone of my author-entrepreneur business.”

From Robert Kroese: Using Amazon KDP Ads to Sell Your Ebook on Amazon

“Amazon offers several ways to help authors promote and advertise their Kindle ebooks on Amazon itself. In this post, I’ll cover two types of ads Amazon offers through its Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) site for self-publishing authors. Note that you no longer have to be exclusive to Amazon in order to advertise on Amazon.”

Sources I Check Regularly

I find the posts and articles that I share with you on The Writing Edge in many places. But there are a few that provide insightful pieces again and again. Here they are.
