    I’ve heard of the telephone strategy of hers before but that was before I had even begun writing my first book. Everything was overwelming at that point. Today, things look more durable and I can benefit from her suggestions. I like how she said Your voice is valuable, you are valuable, we need your books, we need your voice. Don’t give up! I just downloaded several freebies she gave us and even submitted an application to come on her podcast (which I just hooked up with my phone).

      I’m glad you downloaded the freebies and applied to be on my podcast. I’m looking forward to reviewing your submission for, “Tuxedo Baby.”

      Thank you for being a part of the presentation, and I’m excited to connect with you more!

      Thank you so much Quinn for a wonderfully informative session! This is actually my 2nd time listing since marketing is so new to me and scary. The 2nd time listening made all the difference and I now have a greater understanding of the Telephone Method. I love how you stress being honest with your readers and providing freebies that will help them fill a need. You explain things in a beautiful way!

    Thank you for the encouragement you gave in your “top tip”. Excellent reminder, especially when it is hard to get your book into a school or library.

    1. Quinn PC Avatar

      Hey Carol,

      You’re welcome! I’m glad my “top tip” resonated with you and served as an excellent reminder. Getting your book into schools or libraries can indeed be challenging, but don’t let that deter you!

      Wishing you all the best on your journey!

    I’m also a new member of Quinn’s fan club. She has excellent presentation skills, including moments of laughter that I certainly need when swallowing so much information in a summit. An important takeaway is her top tip: ” Your voice is valuable; you are valuable. We need your books; we need your voice!” Of her many practical takeaways I plan to use and/or try, I’m most intrigued by the point system (to grow my email list).

    Quinn’s bonuses are resources that only a generous mentor would provide at no cost. One can literally modify the templates and be on their way with effective automated emails.

    I look forward to browsing her website and learning more about Aidyn’s Books.

    Your presentation was very helpful to me as an older-waited till the last minute-author. I’m still not sure about this Email list thing but you made some of it more clear.
    Wish I had more years to catch up on all these things. As an art and music teacher for 40 years, I have all kinds of freebee ideas. I’ve got to get a web page!
    Thanks for much needed help … wish I could get on your podcast to tell others my age that it’s never too late. I have one book out there and am about to put out the second while working on an entire set of “Lesson” books.
    Now to get out there and SELL “MS P” books!

    THANK YOU for all the tips! It was interesting to listen about the telephone method applicable to books, but more interesting was the attribution of points (1p for entering, 2p for feedback, etc. 50p for bringing a friend!). Excellent!

    I also want to say that I agree with you on the email list being run from Gmail, not automatically paying a mail provider. And when sent from Outlook, one can also see who’s opening and who’s not but it’s just statistics because it’s not like paying a provider for all your subscribers.
