My next email promotion will not go out in August, as this month is a heavy vacation month. September is my next target for promotion via email, but I have other efforts happening as well. I've just returned from my trip to Japan and I'll share those images and stories soon, but while on the long plane ride I had time to re-read one of my favorite books, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I try to read this book once a year to remind myself of all the important things I need to work on. Building personal relationships is the best thing you can do to promote yourself and your work. During my trip to Japan I took photographs everywhere and I am going to print my favorite image and send a signed print to all my clients along with set of beautifully crafted chopsticks I picked up for all my clients in Japan. Before you send another second on marketing do yourself a favor and read, or re-read, How to Win Friends and Influence People.
Always Dream Big!
