They are not squeals of delight. They are squeals of frustration. I LOVE IT!!!
And I HATE IT!!!
As Monk always says: They are a gift and a curse.
Started out I bought Del, my husband a tablet. He was on the road, driving our truck and giving me a break to get things done at home. I loved his tablet so I ordered another one for me and then I figured a tablet would be a wonderful promotional tool, so I bought one for that too. A very nice red one with a keyboard case. I will be posting instructions on how to get a chance to win it. Does anyone have any great ideas that I could do to give this away? I’m thinking around Thanksgiving.
Then, then…my phone was running so slow that I decided I needed a new one, and Del wanted to change services, so to the Phone Store we went. We ended up with 2, 2 mind you, Galaxy Note 3’s. So we have to put all our stuff in both phones and I have spent days figuring out what all my phone can do. Do you have a cool program on your Galaxy Note? It is an Android system, which makes it nice in that I am familiar with it, but the Galaxy does so much more than any phone I’ve had. I think this too will be a promotional tool.
Now, I am going to have to buy another “Smart” TV (for the truck) to go with the new phone, one that is compatible. Speaking of which, I’m still trying to get my Eprinter to work wirelessly with my new Computer and my phones.
I feel like I need to keep up with all the latest, hoping that they will somehow make my life easier, and less complicated.
I’m hoping I will be able to edit sections of my books as free chapters for promotional purposes. I haven’t tried this yet. I wonder which electronic toy will be best for this project. Here’s a link to Free Book Publicity. It goes into a lot of detail on how to use these free chapters and books to help your promotions.
Offer books as prizes, also seems like a good idea. I think I will pair that with the Tablet give-a-way. I think I will see if the local paper, new station, and radio will give me a little interview to help with my promotion. I think it’s good to write your own news releases. I’m wondering if I should give the interviewers a free book, or maybe an entry into the drawings. What do you think? A couple of more things I’m wondering if it works well, that is creating a newsletter. The other one is to put excerpts from your books in your blogs. I do have a Blog for “Stamp Out Murder”.
I love my music and I was having squeals of frustration over trying to get my 821 songs from my Droid to my Galaxy. I tried several apps that did not work. Finally, I did it manually. That really was the easiest way.
**How do you feel about new electronic toys? What ones do you use the most? Do you have any secrets to share about getting them to run more smoothly?**
