National Avocado Day!

National Avocado Day!

image

National Avocado Day is Friday, July 31st

People are always surprised at how young both my husband and I look. He's 89 and I'm 67. But, we both eat only organic foods, we almost never eat meat anymore, and we eat a lot of avocados. It's one of our favorite foods, and btw, it's great for your skin. So, it only makes sense that I would pick National Avocado Day to celebrate this week! Plus, Avocados are rich in vitamins, high in fiber and they help lower cholesterol. So, eat up! If you want to be a successful authorpreneur you need to take care of your health!

Tip: As an avocado connoisseur, I can tell you Costco has the best organic avocados; they have the biggest ones too.

Woo-hoo! I've been working with my partner, Jeff J Hunter on rebranding. The first step was moving to Books Open Doors. Now my new logo and marketing materials are finished and I couldn't be more thrilled! Here's the final one logo!

I shared in on Facebook, and my friends are LOVING IT! If you decide you'd like Jeff's help with your branding, email me at ellen@booksopendoors.com and I'll hook you up.

I've also been expanding, working with clients in two new different areas: 1. Creating long-term marketing plans for clients beyond the #1bestseller launch and 2. Working with clients to get clear on their marketing message and core idea of their business so that when they write their book, it is the RIGHT book. So, if you need help in either of these areas, you're welcome to fill out the short questionnaire at www.booksopendoors.com/ so I can learn more about your business, and then we can set up a time to talk.

In personal news/Covid info, Christen is recovering slowly from his "espisode". If you missed it he collapsed over a week ago and hit his head. He'll be getting the staples removed this week. We've been in lockdown since 3/13 and the only time I have gone out was to get gas so that I could pick him up from the hospital. The only time he was out was going in the ambulance to the hospital and staying there two days. And I can tell you, sometimes, you have to deal with situations during this Covid pandemic that are not pleasant. In fact, they can be very stressful.

And one thing I learned was that the hospitals don't let you wear the masks we were using P95's because they had a filter but because we could breathe out they didn't protect others. So, I went on Facebook and asked my friends what were the best masks to buy since there are a million of them on Amazon. I was told to get one with a pocket so you can put a filter in it. Also, if you have a mask like I have, you can put a cotton pocket mask over that one. It feels really strange, but it works. Just thought I'd pass this along in case you're dealing with this issue too:)

That's it for now!

This week's podcast Episode 55: What Authors Need To Know About Book Publishing with Michelle Vandepas.

Many authors have misconceived ideas of what a publishing deal will do for them and if you don't have the right information, it can be difficult to make a decision as to which publishing path is best for you.

In this week's podcast, Grace Point Publisher, Michelle Vandepas and I discuss the realities of publishing, we debunk the myths, and the pros and cons of the different types of publishing deals.

This is one interview that every author needs to hear!

Article: Amazing Copywriting Tools that Will Improve your Engagement and Sales!

Here are some cool tools that will improve your writing and your conversion rates so that you reach more potential clients and customers and make more sales. And, you can use one or more of them for virtually any project.

Hemingway App

This app will improve your sentence structure by highlighting lengthy complex sentences and common errors and show you how to shorten or split sentences. It also helps to make your writing simpler and easier to understand as it points out issues in your writing.

To use it, drop in your text, follow the colored prompts and voila! You'll get better copy in a snap!

There is a free version, and the paid version is only $19.99 right now, so it's very affordable to any writer.

Grammarly

Grammarly is the best tool to check grammar errors, punctuation, and spelling. I have it and use it all the time. The Grammarly yearly plan is currently $139.95. You can also get a four-month subscription for $59.95. But, if you do a lot of writing and especially if you tend to self-edit, it's worth it.

Headline Analyzer

This free tool helps you tighten up your headlines so they get more engagement or conversion, depending on what you are using it for. It tells you what percentage of your words in your headline are common, uncommon, emotional, and powerful and it scores your headline based on how balanced it is. And once you see your score, you can tweak your title to improve it's effectiveness. It also gives you a readout on what keywords were used in the title. (If you don't see any, then you need to rewrite it to include them.) Very cool!

Funnel Scripts

While the three tools mentioned above help you tweak and improve your writing, Funnel Scripts actually writes copy for you! It is by far the tool that has saved me the most time and money this last year.

It also creates original and time-proven headlines, emails and follow-up sequences, video sales scripts, power points, webinar presentations and more! I use it all the time and love it. It is pricey, but for the amount of time it has saved me having to write copy from scratch (when I need help), or would otherwise hire a copywriter for, it's totally worth it!

To learn more, watch the free webinar at: http://ellenlikes.com/funnelscripts And when you go through my link, if you decide to purchase it, I will do a one-on-one consultation with you to show you how to use it.

I can't tell you how many pieces of software I have bought that I never used. This isn't one of them. Once I show you how it works, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it and you'll be able to use it immediately. I promise you'll thank me!

If you want to increase the number of views, increase the amount of time people consume your content, increase your conversion rates, and make more sales, don't just read this article, start using as many of these tools as you can and watch your results improve dramatically!
