5. If you’re self published Offer an older ebook title for free or for 99 cents to 2.99 on kindle.

7. Make online newsletter from newsgroup.

  4. Lots of good tips today Val! When I write my articles on Squidoo, many times the article is appropriate for linking with one of my blogs in the side bar or in the article itself.

    I just love your adorable ice cream art mug! Your abstract canvas is beautiful too. Thanks for featuring my artwork!
