our contributors in a teleseminar series.

Q: How do I build my platform and
manage my email list?
This is the question I get asked most often.
EVERYONE needs to build and manage their list of contacts
- whether you are a musician, author, filmmaker, insurance agent, politician,
advocate, missionary, podcaster, blogger, or boy/girl scout.
In next month's newsletter, we'll teach you
how to build your platform and manage your contacts more effectively.
"David Mathison's BE THE MEDIA is the best overall resource available to help
you build out your platform."
