Urbanna, VA (PressExposure) April 28, 2007 -- Freelance writers and online entrepreneurs Donna Doyle, Beth Erickson and Victoria Rosendahl â also known as The 3 Chix â gave away the secrets of their business success to anyone who wanted to listen.
On Monday, April 16, The Chix (http://www.3chix.com) held a landmark teleseminar that broke the rules by not only making it free but also loading the MP3 of that call onto their website where anyone can listen.
âBeing a writer can be a lonely and solitary existence,â says Erickson, CEO of Filbert Publishing. âDonna and Vic and I wanted to make sure to give back and in a way that wouldnât cost someone who lived in Australia a dime. Anyone whoâd like to listen can go to our website and click on the MP3 and listen.
The teleseminar highlighted some of the topics the three will cover in their upcoming seminar to be held on Saturday, May 5 in Wilmington, Delaware. The Business of Successful Freelance Writing will explore things like how to handle difficult clients, getting into the right mindset as a freelancer, and how to publicize your book without spending $15,000 a month on a publicity team.
âWeâve got some things weâre doing that other seminars just donât do,â says Doyle, AWAIâs 2006 Copywriter of the Year. âFor instance, weâre recording the seminar on CD â I know DVD is popular but weâve had so many people tell us how much theyâd wished it was on CD so they could listen in their cars â and weâre giving those CDs away free for everyone who comes to the seminar.â
Sign-ups for the seminar have been rolling along at a brisk pace. The seminar is for writers in all genres whether itâs copywriting, fiction writing or magazine and newspaper writing. âThe principles are the same,â says Rosendahl, a writer with over 40 yearsâ experience. âOne of my classes is called Writing DIY and the ideas Iâll present work well in any kind of writing. Itâs all about creating and selling a digital product online for a passive stream of income.â
Also included in the registration fee are a speed critique of work or ideas; breakfast, lunch and a snack; and an armload of materials to take home and use. The seminar is schedule on a Saturday so that freelance writers still working in traditional jobs wonât miss work.
