Speaking Engagements as Marketing Avenues
Or...The Dragon applauds Denver Bronco Karl Mecklenburg's author effort

I went to Colorado for the day job late last week to attend the Colorado Asphalt Pavement Association's big annual event. Former All-Pro captain of the Denver Broncos, Karl Mecklenburg, gave the keynote address to the crowd. As a smart marketer, he stuck around to sell copies of his sports-motivational book Heart of a Student Athlete.

Now, folks who have visited this site before know that I go around speaking on marketing, blogging, and writing; giving workshops and offering all the tips and advice I can. But I'd like to reiterate how important public speaking is for getting your name out there as an expert. It's the way to build your platform. Etc. I'll be talking about online marketing specifically at the NPC Writers' Conference April 10 through 11 in Naples, Fla., and encourage folks in Florida to check out the conference offerings and sign up early.

Oh! And I purchased a copy of the book to be autographed on the spot! It looks perfect for young men (and ladies) in sports or considering any sort of team-building work. You can purchase it on Amazon, which I've linked in the blog post. You can also click on Karl's tag words on the Amazon page...
