On Nov. 17, Harry McCracken and Joe Pulizzi will give advice on launching a successful new-media venture. Read posts by and about McCracken and Pulizzi on the ASBPE National Blog.
The advent of the Internet has made it easier and less costly than ever for writers and editors to connect with a niche audience. It also has dramatically increased the value of their skills, enabling smart writers and editors to reach millions of people, as well as make money doing so, without the backing of a large media company.

During a Webinar brought to you by ASBPE, you'll learn from Harry McCracken, the former editor-in-chief of PC World who has since founded the personal technology blog Technologizer, and Joe Pulizzi, founder and chief content officer of the search community site Junta42, how to:
  • develop an effective marketing strategy to promote your content;
  • identify, and participate in, online conversations that can help draw audiences to your work;
  • use social networking Web sites to reach out to online communities who are likely to value your expertise;
  • leverage the power of "free";
  • and build successful permission-based marketing initiatives.
If you aim to learn how you can create a compelling B2B editorial brand on your own, then we invite you to set aside time for our webinar.
