You‘ve spent weeks, maybe months, crafting and rehearsing a talk, speech, presentation, or workshop. At the same time, you and other folks involved in the event publicize diligently – to attract the audience.

Your big day has arrived.  You deliver your creation. The audience applaud and the organizers thank you.  New fans surround you.  You feel a natural high as you say goodbye.  Job well done.

So you head for home, your hotel room, or perhaps a  friend or colleague has offered you a rest stop.  Now what?

Fanbase-Building Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan says “After the gig… that’s the time to publicize even more.”

Example:

Mary E. Knippel was invited to be headliner at the October 11, 2014 meeting of the Heart2Heart Toastmasters Club. She created her interactive presentation “Tell Your Story from the Heart” for this esteemed group.

Here’s the 3 minute and 35 second movie: Writer Unleashed Mary E. Knippel headliner at Heart2Heart Toastmasters

Headliner Mary E. Knippel, the Writer Unleashed, speaks about standing in authenticity, sharing stories, growing up in the 1950s, writing in her journal, poetry, and being inspired by Erma Louise Bombeck (the American humorist who achieved great popularity for her newspaper column that described suburban home life).

Greetings from Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan . . .  I started writing my first memoir at the beginning of the year and by mid-year I have been avoiding crowds and parties. When I’m not presenting at writers’ conferences and writers’ organizations or helping clients build their fanbases, I meet up with colleagues to write and conduct research for my own books.

“I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Fire & Water, The AudiobookI was blessed to find a talented voice artist in Monica McKey and a fantastic sound engineer in Adam Sullivan of Great Magnet Recording.  I served as producer/director to these talented experts (mine was the easy job) and I’m so proud of what we’ve created.  Monica’s gorgeous voice and great talent give the story another dimension and Adam’s wizardry brought it all seamlessly together.”

If you’ve read Fire & Water and enjoyed it, please pass this announcement on to your audio loving friends: Commuters, those with visual impairment, or just audio lovers. …And please consider posting a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads!
