We Can Use Some Help

Make Yourself Clear officially launches on Tuesday (May 7), and Reshan and I are now in need of all the help we can get. Some of you will receive this list, via email, early next week, but if you don’t receive that email and still want to pitch in, here are some things you can do to help us spread the word about our latest project and try to make a (good) dent in the public consciousness.

  1. Buy the book. Apparently, Amazon is shipping copies as of today.
  2. Read the book and leave a review on Amazon (or GoodReads, Barnes & Noble, etc.).
  3. Buy a second copy of the book for someone with whom you work. 
  4. Buy a third copy to donate to a local library or high school / college library. See bulk deals here.
  5. Email 5 people and recommend that they buy (and read) the book.
  6. Form a reading group around the book. Invite us to attend either in person or via Zoom or Skype.
  7. Take a picture of yourself reading the book and share it with your Facebook friends and family.
  8. Take a picture of yourself reading the book and share it with your Twitter and/or Instagram audiences.
  9. Find something you like in the book and quote it on a Twitter or Instagram post.
  10. Review the book on your own blog.
  11. Send the book’s title, or a short review of the book, to a newsletter that you like.
  12. Write a review of the book for a magazine to which you are able to contribute.
  13. If you come across a Tweet, Instragram Post, or any other social media related to the book, like and retweet/share it.
  14. Same as above, add a reply or comment to the conversation.
  15. Interview us on your podcast.
  16. Interview us for your newsletter or blog.
  17. Interview us for another publication.  
  18. Invite us to speak at your company or school.
  19. Introduce us to people you know who could book us as a speaker or who would benefit from a team/organization-wide read of the book.

Thanks for considering some of the above. Ideally, you will choose something that will benefit you or the people around you. The point here is to add some value and hopefully some delight to the world.
