Win "My" Blog Profits for One Month!

Well, not mine, exactly. Courtney Tuttle's. Let me explain.

As this is the only post I'll be doing this week due to the holiday, I wanted to leave you with something to think about moving forward -- viral marketing.

Courtney Tuttle created a contest whereby readers could win his blog's profits for an entire month. He did it for two months. Read about it here. Talk about putting your marketing on steroids.

Freelance Writing Seminar: Learn exactly what to do to earn $100, $150, $200/day or more as a freelance writer, editor and/or copy editor in our upcoming seminar. Details. It's a career anyone who can read and write can start -- with the right information.

$10,000 in one year from one "client" alone; From $0 to $600K in profits in two years: Learn how these successful freelancers carved out profitable careers in our highly popular newsletter, How to Start a Successful Freelance Career. Subscribe today. FYI, you get a FREE ebook on article marketing when you subscribe.

Gain clients, web traffic and brand awareness. How? Let us interview you for our popular newsletter? Full details. Read the first issue here.
You see, viral marketing is all about getting eyeballs to your site/blog. Contests, awards, hot topics (eg, Paula Mooney's blog is great for this), etc. can all be made into great viral marketing campaigns.

Take "The Thinking Blogger's Award," which this blog was tapped for twice (way cool!). Read about that here. Even though the guy who created it no longer has an active site, the award lives on.

Site traffic leads to subscribers (regular readers). This builds trust, which eventually leads to sales. So, start thinking of some viral marketing ideas for your site/blog and watch your sales and subscribers increase.

To my American counterparts, enjoy the upcoming 4th of July holiday. During your festivities, please keep the troops of every nation in mind -- whether you agree with the war or not/ The freedoms we enjoy, especially in this country, are due directly to their incredible sacrifices.

I'm going to take this week and catch up on some "backburnered" projects. I'll join you back here on Monday, the 9th.

Always editorially yours,
Yuwanda Black, Publisher
Upcoming Features in Inkwell Editorial’s Newsletter

July 18: Paula Mooney: Blogger who helps other bloggers “make money, get readers and increase their blog’s ranking.” Paula will reveal how she makes money online, and how she’s built a very popular blog in only a few month’s time.

If you currently have a blog, or are thinking about starting one, you won’t want to miss this interview!

August 15: Meryl K. Evans. I tapped Meryl for an interview because she’s found success in the B2B niche. Meryl has written for some pretty notable clients, eg, PC Today, O’Reilly and Pearson to name a few.

This is where the real money in freelance writing is folks (B2B). I’m as anxious to see what she has to say as I hope you are!

September 12: We ring in the “editorial season” by interviewing Gordon Graham, aka “that white paper guy.” Gordon writes and edits white papers and case studies. He charges $90/hour just to edit a white paper and a minimum of $4,000 to produce a white paper from scratch.

Lillie, when I go to the site ( it gives an "Error 400" message. Is there another link I should be clicking on. If so, let me know so I can let others know.

This is a truly great award and I'd love to visit the creator's site.
