Oklahoma singer/songwriter, Beverly Perry, making international news, sweeps the 2015 International UK Songwriting Contest by advancing to the semi-finals in an unheard of six genres. Description: Lawton Oklahoma singer/songwriter Beverly Perry has eleven entires that have advanced to the semi-finals in the 2015 International UK Songwriting Contest out of over 7000 entries. Perry is getting noticed by key music industry professionals who have advanced her originals to the semi-finals in pop, acoustic folk, country, adult contemporary, and christian/ gospel categories, as well as the singer/songwriter category, which is also judged on vocal performance.

 “I was shocked to learn that my original tunes were resonating with different judges across all genres I submitted to. It was very unexpected”

Last year Beverly Perry submitted her songs Here’s the Full Story

The UK Songwriting Contest is one of the world’s longest running and most popular international songwriting events, in association with prestigious bodies such as The BRIT Trust (of BRIT Awards fame), The BRIT Studio, The BRIT School, Music Aid UK and top British producers and international industry professionals with the aim of “discovering and encouraging new songwriting talent and promoting the craft of songwriting”.

Every year the event becomes more international with entries from around the world and with appearances of winners on major network TV shows worldwide. It is well known in the international music business as an important launching pad for new songwriting talent. Among the hopefuls advancing to the 2015 semi-finals is Oklahoma’s own, Beverly Perry, whose song “It Was Real” made it to the finals in the country music category in 2014.

Diagnosed with a rare genetic disease, Acute Intermittent Porphyria, Perry was forced to leave her career with a medical company and move back to Oklahoma in 2012. “I found that songwriting was a needed creative outlet. For me, it’s not about winning awards. There is something healing about creativity.” Songs in the contest are judged solely on composition, with exception of the singer/ songwriter category in which vocal performance is also judged . Perry entered three songs in the singer/songwriter category this year, with all three advancing to the semi- finals. Placing in six categories with eleven entries, Beverly Perry says, “I am honored to have so many songs selected to be among the semi-finalists. The competition is stiff and music can be subjective.” She adds, “I’m keeping my fingers crossed that at least one song will be a finalist again this year. It would be a dream to win a category. I am just happy that I have been chosen to advance in multiple genres this year.”

Among the 2015 judges are top music industry names: Shelly Peiken – a Multi-Platinum Album, Grammy nominated hit songwriter who is well known for her #1 hits “What a Girl Wants” and “Come On Over Baby” with Christina Aguilera, and songs recorded by Meat Loaf, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Ronan Keating, Backstreet Boys, Cher, Gladys Knight, Gloria Gaynor, Lindsay Lohan, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, NSYNC and many more. Stuart Epps – Stuart is particularly well known for his work with Elton John, Robbie Williams, Led Zeppelin, Bill Wyman, George Harrison, Paul Weller, Oasis and many others. Marc (Kipper) Eldridge – He has two Grammy Awards and also an Emmy Award and his albums have sold more than 15 million copies. He has produced and worked with Sting, Stevie Wonder, James Morrison, Mary J Blige, James Taylor, Richard Marx, Clay Aiken, Chris Botti, Gary Numan, Catherine Zeta Jones and Curtis Stigers among many others. Lucie Diamond – Female Artist of the Year and also Country Artist of the Year at The European Country Awards. Lucie has worked with Multi Grammy Award winners Delbert Mcclinton and Albert Lee and a host of international songwriters including Garth Brooks’ writing partner Kent Blazy. Simon Ellis – Musical Director for the Britney Spears’ world tour, and also as MD for The Spice Girls, Belinda Carlisle, East 17, D:Ream and Jamelia. He has also written and produced songs for John Farnham, Randy Crawford, Emma Bunton, Steps, Hearsay, D Side, Javine, Maria Lawson, S Club 7. He is a winner of the BRIT Award for Best Song and ITV Record of the Year and has been nominated for an Ivor Novello Award. Mark Cawley – Sold over 15 million copies worldwide. He has written or co-written songs for The Spice Girls, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Joe Cocker, Wynonna Judd, Kathy Mattea, Russ Taff, Paul Carrack, Will Downing, Tom Scott and more. He has also worked with legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach and he had a UK number one hit with Billie Piper’s song Day and Night. The finals will be announced in December.

Many past entrants have been noticed and signed by publishers, producers, and record companies. Perry says, “It is a great opportunity for songwriters. It’s an honor just to be heard by music industry professionals”.

social media branding credibility

In a world filled with noise, how does a business owner, brand, author or entrepreneur stand out in the crowd?

Becoming a Best-Selling Author in ‘Post-Borders’ Era

Authors, Do you feel LOST when it comes to getting your book FOUND Online? Don’t know ‘where to start’?  Are you feeling overwhelmed? We’ve got some good news and some bad news: 

best-selling-author-post-borders-era-amazon-rank-my-book

If you’re an author and ever thought or said: “If I could just get my book in the bookstore I know it would sell right?”

 

The Shocking Fact is: Probably not! In fact, the brick and mortar bookstore can be the WORSE place to sell your book and here’s why – Your buyer has moved!

 

The year 2011 was the year the Internet KILLED the publishing industry. That is the year that Amazon announced to the world that, for the first time, e-books had outsold traditional print books.

 

Now before you get all worked up thinking it’s the end of the world and start preparing for the Apocalypse, let me share some good news with you.

 

The same Internet that KILLED the publishing industry in 2011 is creating a rebirth or a renaissance for new authors in 2014 and beyond. It was also 2011 that Amazon announced that out of it’s top 100 e-books that year that 27 of their top sellers were self-published and not traditionally published by an ‘old school’ publisher. The lesson here is: We are on the verge of a massive shift in publishing and you, the author, can benefit and prosper greatly from this new distribution model IF you know how to position yourself correctly and take advantage of this historic global shift.

Why it is Harder to Become a Best-Selling author in the Internet Age 

Over 1 million new books were issued ISBN numbers in America in 2012. That represents at least 500,000 new authors. Of those, 60% are self-published authors, with 85% of Americans saying they want to publish a book in their lifetime, according to Bowker book research.

With so many new authors writing new books every year the amount of noise in the publishing world has made it harder for a new author to get noticed.

But, in the midst of the noise, authors who correctly utilize social media can and are becoming best-sellers, landing movie deals, getting media coverage and selling more books.

I stuttered as a child. From the ages of 5-11 I had trouble communicating my thoughts and many times was laughed at and made fun of by my peers and adults. I eventually grew out of my speech impediment and stuttering and one way I coped was to pretend I had a TV show and interviewed interesting guests from all over the world. As long as I was ‘on the set’ of my show (which was on our small family farm) I could talk without stuttering. I believe this, along with several other things, helped me overcome my stuttering. During this time I read a lot of books and did a ton of writing myself. In fact, I remember reading a book written by an 11 year old boy and said to myself: ‘I want to be a writer too.” I share that story to illustrate the evolution that is taking place in my lifetime from brick and mortar stores to Online shopping and how the Internet has changed everything – especially the publishing industry.

How to Leverage Social Media in the Internet Age to Sell More Books

Like the printing press bringing us out of the Dark Ages the Internet is revolutionizing the publishing industry, giving new authors an unprecedented opportunity.

 

Fact #1

Authors who learn how to leverage Social Media and the Internet with an Online Community will sell more books and gain more notoriety.

 

Fact #2

Most authors do not know HOW to correctly use Social Media and instead of helping their brand they actually hurt their brand by doing it wrong.

 

7 Simple Steps to Getting it right with Social Media and Selling More Books as an Author 


(note these tips will help you sell more books as a marketer but not but not necessarily make you a better writer as an author)

1. Brand Your Name

Fiction authors, non fiction authors and self help and religious authors will find the benefits of branding their name by owning their URL can take them far in their writing career. If yourname.com is not available you may want to add a middle initial like I did MichaelDButler.com

By owning your URL yourname.com you can continue with a lifetime of blogging and update your fans and readers as each new book becomes available.

You will also want to brand your name on all social media channels ie: Facebook.com/yourname Linkedin.com/yourname, etc… This will make it easier for fans to find you and follow you and will give you tremendous search engine boost over time.

 

2. Brand Your Face 

Having a close up, current photograph/profile picture will serve you well in the long run. You may love your dog, your grand kids or your automobile but people want to connect with you the author and this is why a photo of your face is preferable to one of your pet. People buy from us when they know us, like us and trust us and nothing helps that happen faster than a current profile picture that is consistent across all social media channels. With the majority of social media being done from smart phones it is so important to make it easy for people to recognize you by using a consistent, easy to see and easy to share photo of your face. Use the same photo on Facebook, Twitter, instagram, Pinterest, your blog/Website, Linked-in, YouTube and all other social media channels.

 

3. Tell a Compelling Story

 

We all want our stories to go viral. For them to go viral they must be compelling, authentic and relatable. “He or she who tells the best story wins.” We all know that being a better writer does not necessarily help you sell more books. But telling a better story WILL help you be remembered and will help you leverage your way to ‘best-seller’ faster. Facts tell but stories sell and to make the biggest impact an author must learn how to tell the best stories.

 

As a public speaker who’s delivered nearly two thousand keynotes and workshops, 90% of the time I tell the story of me stuttering as a kid. I tell this to connect myself with my audience in a way that hopefully fosters authenticity, trust and connection. Many times I tell my story about being a single dad of 4 sons, of being a marathoner or of my son overcoming cancer and having a bone marrow transplant and how his courage and faith inspired thousands.

Stories endear us to our audience, make us more human and create an emotional bond that makes our customers trust us and want to buy from us. Decide what stories fit in your overall social media ‘story’ and weave them in with testimonials, FAQ’s, valuable content and educating your customers. For example if you’re a financial advisor and you write about how to save, choose investments and minimize risk, tell us stories about clients you’ve helped but also tell us WHY you got into the business of helping people save for retirement.

Many times when an audience or individual hears your ‘WHY’ it’s just the thing they need to cement that relationship for life! So, tell your story, tell it early, often and with passion. It will create a lifetime of raving fans ready for book #2 book #3 and book #4 from you!

 

4. Leverage Your Keywords Across Multiple Social Media Channels 


The Internet gives us the opportunity to connect with potential joint venture partners by leveraging keywords Online.For example, if I’m a self-help author it is very beneficial for me to connect with other self-help authors on social media. This will not hurt my book sales. This will allow others who are following them to find me and it adds value to us both.

 

We’ve seen it happen again and again in every genre of books, authors who are not threatened by ‘competition’ end up winning in the long run. We’ve even seen two of our authors land movie deals as a result of leveraging their keywords on social media platforms and getting others to talk about them. This ‘third party’ credibility caused a production company to take notice and take action!

 

There are a number of free and fee based tools to help authors find potential joint venture partners Online and sell more books. Hootsuite.com and ManageFlitter.com are two of my favorites. A Google search or a search on Mashable.com will show the latest and most reputable tools for managing your brand Online.

 

Experienced authors who are getting royalty checks should consider outsourcing part of all of their social media to a qualified agency. It is more affordable than many authors realize and it can free up more time for the author to do what their good at and what produces the most income – write more books. Outsourcing one’s social media does not make it less personable. Any qualified agency will take the necessary time to get to know the core message of the author and insure that the message, content and personality of the writer comes through in all Online interactions.

 

5.  Get Others to Talk About You and Your Books

Third party validation is so powerful when it comes to Online buying. This is why creating a relationship with potential joint venture partners is huge. An author who only talks about themselves will lose followers, but those who brag on others will find that others naturally want to brag on them too. ‘Go-Givers Gain’ when it comes to broadcasting Online. By using what we recommend as our 25% Rule of Engagement ™ where only 25% of the time you talk about yourself and the other 75% you talk about: Industry News and Facts, Humor and FAQ’s and quote experts in your niche you will find those same experts, soon, esteem you as a colleague and begin sharing your stuff freely. One sure fired way to insure others won’t keep talking about you is by ignoring or not replying to FAQ’s and Online sharing. Utilize free monitoring software to track when others are talking about you and your book Online so you can thank them and return the favor.

6. Have a Winning Content Creation Strategy that Includes Video 

The fastest way for your content to go ‘viral’ is is to have it on video. Since Google owns YouTube and 75% of search results are based on video content you will be miles ahead of others in your field if you focus on video marketing for the next 5 years. Finally, make your content shareable. If you want people to share your content – Make it shareable. Use social media buttons like  http://wordpress.org/plugins/addthis/ If you’re following our 25% Rule of Engagement ™ formula we mentioned above you can feel confident in asking people to Re-Tweet and share your content across all their social media channels. Finally, this brings me to my important final point,

 7. Re-Purpose Your Content

There is nothing lazy about re-purposing content it is smart! Content is king on the Internet and to get found you must have new and fresh content on a weekly basis written for humans and search engines to get found, indexed and shared. ‘A tweet grows up to become a New York Time’s Best-Seller’ is always our goal and it starts today with you!

 

Growing up on the farm I loved eating Mom’s cooking. She always made something delicious, nutritious and enjoyable but only used the same 4 food groups over and over and many times mixed a new dish with leftovers from the day before.  For example, everyone of these numbered points in this book (yes this post will be a chapter in a best-seller in Barnes and Noble in May 2014) chapter were a YouTube video, a blog post, a series of Tweets, Facebook posts and Google + posts. The easiest way, in my opinion, to create content is to shoot a weekly video from some of our FAQ’s we get from our clients. I then type up the manuscript (text) from the video. And post this text along with the video on my YouTube channel and my blog. Now I have a Search Engine Optimized piece of valuable content that will drive traffic to me based on what we do for authors and I make it shareable using http://wordpress.org/plugins/addthis/ and Tweet it, Facebook it, post it on Google+ Pinterest, and the social bookmarking sites like Reddit, Stumble Upon, Digg and Delicious.

Optimal Brand Building Online – Joint Venture Partners & Content Syndication

Content Syndication for Optimal Brand Building Online with Joint Venture Partners By Michael D. Butler TurnkeyTrasformations.com

Michael D Butler Best Selling Author Speaker Social Commerce Pioneer on Brian Tracy Show
Michael D Butler Best Selling Author Speaker Social Commerce Pioneer on Brian Tracy Show San Diego, CA

When it comes to building your brand Online one of the fastest and most effect way is to syndicate content across multiple channels and with many joint venture partners in similar areas of expertise.

Let’s define Syndicate from merriam-webster.com/dictionary/syndicate   syn·di·cate noun \ˈsin-di-kət\

1. a group of people or businesses that work together

2. a group of people who are involved in organized crime

3. a business that sells something (such as a piece of writing, comic strip, or photograph) to several different newspapers or magazines for publication at the same time : a business that syndicates something

Let’s go with definitions #1 and #3 for obvious reasons.   Creating content is the most valuable thing you can do to get others to find you on the Internet, come to your Website and hopefully buy something. Creating content is like going into the record studio in Nashville and producing an album.

While Syndication is like the distribution channels after your CD is completed.
  Once you’ve decided what your topics are and have produced a reasonable amount of content on your topic you’ll want to identify who the influencers are in your chosen space and begin building relationships with them. Your hope is to create mutually beneficial relationships so you can help each other reach a great market size or niched demographic within a nich, ie: micro niche.

It may be something as simple as exchanging banner ads or links or doing a guest blog post for each other. Depending on who you are wanting to syndicate, their klout score and following Online and how far along you are in the process with your Online ‘tribe’ of followers they may or may not, yet, be willing to reciprocate.

The main thing to remember is to maintain a positive, long-term strategic attitude and show them you have a ‘Go-Giver’ spirit and are in it, not just for yourself but for the overall good and development of the ‘Online Community’

Eventually, and probably sooner rather than later you’ll be a ‘Rock Star’ in your Niche and will have tons of opportunity to be a guest on your idols shows and offering e-products to their raving fans who are now your raving fans!


 Someone once said and it’s true, that “on the Internet Content is King and if Content is King then Context is Queen.” I couldn’t agree more with this statement. Google recently changed their algorithims again context, proximity and social rank are now more important than ever for getting your content ‘pushed out’ by Google and other search engines.

With these simple suggestions and enough patience anyone including musicians, book authors, brand advocates, public speakers and future celebrities can and will dominate some of the largest stages in the world Online! Now start syndicating and soon you’ll be the one with the celebrities lined up to be on your stage!

Becoming a Best-Selling Author in a Post-Borders Era by Michael D. Butler

michael-d-butler-Dr-Nido-Qubein
Michael D. Butler with Dr. Nido Qubein, President High Point University in High Point North Carolina  Michael spoke in the Communications Department ‘Becoming a Best-Selling Author in a Post Borders Era’ New book available in Barnes and Noble and everywhere May 2014

 The myth of “If I can just get my book in the book store it will sell right?” 

In 2011 the Internet killed the publishing industry. That was the year Amazon announced that e-books had outsold traditional print books for the first time. Kindle also announced in July of 2011 that 27 of the top 100 selling e-books were self published and were not published by a traditional publisher. This fact highlights the rebirth of the publishing industry in the digital age.
  • Why it’s harder to become a best-seller in the Internet age

Recently Bowker.com stated that there are approximately 300,000 newly published authors each year. This, coupled with the fact that 80% of American’s want to publish a book sometime in their lifetime has made the publishing space very crowded and noisy. It’s more difficult for the new author to get found, noticed, and sell books.
  • Why it’s easier to become a best-seller in the Internet age

In the middle of this difficulty lies the solution. The digital world killed traditional publishing as we knew it but the renaissance we’re seeing now, a record number of new best-seller’s,  is happening because of the very thing that ended the old order – the Internet.
  • How to become a best-selling author in a post-Borders Era

By leveraging relationships authors can quickly syndicate their content into new channels. By solidifying relationships with entrepreneurs, authors and speakers who already have large lists, speaking platforms and Online tribes, new authors can partner with and create relationships with these existing thought leaders and create ‘win-wins’.

J. Paul Getty American’s first Billionaire said, “I’d rather have 1% of 100% efforts than 100% of my own.” Getty understood and taught the power of leverage as did the famous 3rd century Mathematician Archimedes whose famous for saying, “Give me a  lever long enough and a place to stand and I can move the world.”

Like the printing press bringing the world out of the dark ages the Internet is bringing a Renaissance to the globe by giving us the topics we want with a search and a click. By leveraging keywords authors can connect with pre-existing Online tribes of people who are more likely to buy their books based on demo-graphic and psyco-graphic filters. By leveraging joint venture partnerships and relationships authors can see more success with quicker book sells.

M3 New Media Announces Fox Business Contributor Judy Hoberman New Book Famous Isn’t Enough


Fox Business Contributor and Best Selling Author Judy Hoberman of ‘Selling in a Skirt’ shares her new book “Famous Isn’t Enough’

From the back of Famous:

“After working for three decades in sales, Judy thought she would naturally be successful as an entrepreneur. But, simply believing “If you build it, they will come” doesn’t work when you’re launching a business.

That’s why I wrote Famous Isn’t Enough, says Judy.  In the book, I share the lessons that I’ve learned being a serial entrepreneur – some good, some bad, and some quite humorous. I offer alternative ways to approach your venture and questions to make you think about your decisions. The book is meant as a guide to help you prepare for the exciting journey ahead, and set you up for success.

When all is said and done, nothing beats being your own boss. With that roll come responsibilities, courage and a lot of hard work. Enjoy, share and let me know how you are doing.”

Michael D Butler and M3 New Media are proud to present Sales Trainer, Business Coach and Best-Selling Author from Dallas, TX Judy Hoberman

Four Tips to Promote Your Business and Personal Brand on LinkedIn

Linkedin-Logo

LinkedIn, the world’s most widely-used professional social networking site, recently celebrated its 10th birthday.

To be honest, we were quite surprised that it has been 10 years. For some reason, it feels like it wasn’t too long ago when Allen Blue, Konstantin Guericke, Eric Ly, and Jean-Luc Vaillant officially launched the site. But of course, if we’re talking about the most surprising thing about LinkedIn, it would have to be its somewhat meteoric rise from being a humble startup with only “4,500 members in its first month” to being a public company with over 200 million users today. There’s no denying that LinkedIn has changed the landscape of social networking. When someone mentions LinkedIn, nobody thinks of cat pictures or self-indulgent status updates; everyone understands that it’s the de facto site for professional networking and, as such, “discretion, judiciousness, and courtesy” are expected, just like in real-life business situations.

To help you get the most out of your LinkedIn presence and make sure that you do not compromise your business and personal brand, here are some tips that will help you enhance your LinkedIn profile.

#1 Start with the basics.

If you are new to the site, LinkedIn University founder Josh Turner suggests completing your profile and taking your email contacts, exporting them into a CSV, and importing that CSV to LinkedIn. LinkedIn will then take care of sending invitations to those contacts so that you can save time—time, which you might probably spend on adding connections one by one.
After this, it’s time to get involved in the groups, particularly those in which your prospects are hanging out. Just be careful, as some groups are full of spam and offer no value whatsoever. If you can’t find a group that’s specific to your line of business, let’s say office phone system (read more) or customer service or marketing support solutions, you can start a new one and build it in such a way that people would flock to it to get or give relevant advice.

#2 Avoid these LinkedIn profile mistakes.

Always remember that there is a difference between personal and professional networking. In terms of building up your LinkedIn profile, it pays to use a recent picture that sends the message that you are ready to work full-time or ready to hobnob with the “big guys” (and gals!). That means “no dog, no husband/wife, no baby!” as explained by LinkedIn Career Expert Nicole Williams. You should also customize your connection request as opposed to using LinkedIn’s default message so that your intended recipient (e.g. a potential boss or client) would feel like you are really serious about building professional relationships. (Bonus tip: Do a bit of research on that person and include pertinent details in your connection request.)

#3 Take advantage of LinkedIn’s mobile applications.

There’s no excuse for you to not use the LinkedIn app, since it’s available on major mobile platforms (Android, iPhone, and Blackberry). One way you could use the app is to use its excellent calendar function, which can sync with your work calendar. It will then “give you the profile info (including mutual contacts) for everyone you’re scheduled to meet with.” This should come in handy especially if you do not have an assistant who can keep track of your meetings and other appointments. Just don’t expect the LinkedIn app to offer “all the functionality of the full browser-based site.” Treat it as a supplementary tool that’s able to “perform most of LinkedIn’s primary functions and give access to its most frequently used tools.”

#4 Aim for 50 – the Magic Connections Number.

Says LinkedIn Career Expert Nicole Williams, “When it comes to how many LinkedIn connections you should have, the magic number is 50.” Now it doesn’t mean you should stop at 50, just that 300 may be too many. Remember that it’s never a good idea to build your network only for it to be flooded with contacts that you don’t really know. 50 is a good target. With 50, you already have second- or third-degree connections, whom you can add to your network.
