Are you a conscious marketer curious about the publishing aspect and dreaming of getting your name as an "author" out there? Novelist Sharon Hamilton shares valuable tips and encourages you on how to do it.
Tune in to this inspiring new episode of the Conscious Marketer podcast — From Real Estate to Romance. How Did This Happen?with Sharon Hamilton.
Key points covered in this episode:
[00:00:26] Reluctant marketers try to figure out a way to do marketing & get their work out in the world that is authentic versus weird.
[00:03:35] Finding authenticity to your gifts and the value only you can offer to the marketplace can be a long and grueling process. Take the story of Sharon Hamilton as the perfect example of what it's like to finally live the dream life not many have expected her to pursue. Selling real estate and selling books are two different things, but there are similarities in how she achieved success.
[00:09:09] Sharon Hamilton didn't start writing novels until she was 60. Now, she is in her happiest and highest element doing what she loves. "I asked, when's a good time to start to give in to that part of me? That's calling me? My house burned down; I was in a lawsuit — it's like God is holding up these billboards, saying, 'Sharon, it's time to change.' And so when I finally got it, I never went back. I don't make as much money as real estate, but I enjoy it ten times more."
[00:13:31] Writing romance novels and heroes is what Sharon gives her readers something in their heart to believe in. "Because I write a lot of Navy SEAL romances, I received letters from women who have lost a husband, mothers who had their sons injured or died in training accidents or wars. They tell me how much the books meant to them in those heartfelt letters. And now, I'm writing for them."
[00:26:05] There's never a better time than now to be an author. Find your audience & your voice. If you're persistent and love it enough, you will be a success.
[00:32:49] Writing copy is not emotional like a poem, novel or movie script. But one thing is for sure — you need words that touch and move if you want to connect effectively with your audience.
