Promo bits, ready to copy


This one action will be one of the most useful time-saving, opportunity-creating things you’ve ever done:

Prepare, in advance, all of the things that people and sites ask for when you’re self-promoting.

Make a folder on your computer called “promo” and put these things inside for quick easy access:

If you do this, just once, then the job of uploading your information to another website, or giving materials to a media outlet, will be painless. You can jump on every little opportunity that comes along.

Bonus points if you have your own website, and put all of this stuff on a “promo” page on your site, so anyone else can get it all from one place, too.
