–> Positive Power Spotlight: Neighborhood Fruit/RideBuzz
As a long time “Green evangelist,” I’ve always been a big
fan of clearinghouses that reduce waste and let people share
resources. It’s better for the planet, better for the
pocketbook, and better for building community. This month, I’m
going to share two such initiatives from opposite ends of the

–> Another Recommended Book: Trust Agents: Using the Web to
Build Influence, Improve Reputation, and Earn Trust
Of the dozen or so books I’ve read on Internet-based
communities (and their application for marketing), Trust Agents
stands head-and-shoulders above the rest. Normally when I review
a book, I take a page of notes, maybe two. In the smallest
handwriting I can still read, I had more than half a page by the
time I got to the end of Chapter 1! By the time I was done, I had
four full pages.

-> Hear & Meet Shel, November 2009
* If you’re a consultant or business coach or you’ve had
a desire to become one, then you’ll be excited to know that
tomorrow, David Frey and Elsom Eldridge are kicking off the
week-long no-cost Consulting Masters Telesummit. It starts on
Monday, November 16th. The interview that I contributed to this
event describes how to get raving testimonials for your
consulting business even if you’re just starting out.
* Environmental journalist Diane Tegarden interviews me
December 8, 1 pm ET/10 a.m. ET, for her monthly 30-minute
Renewable Energy Radio Show (I imagine we’ll be talking both
about Painless Green on the consumer side and Guerrilla
Marketing Goes Green on the business side). Listen in: 712-338-8710,
PIN number 618#
* March 24, I’m doing a teleseminar for Stacy Karacostas:
stacy (at) success-stream.com
* April 25, I’ll be speaking on collaborating with a
co-author at the American Society of Journalists and Authors
conference in New York. http://asja.org/wc/2010/

-> Friends Who Want to Help, November 2009
* Who would have thunk it? The brilliant and quirky New Zealand
marketer Sean D’Souza of Psychotactics is *giving away* one of
his $2500 courses! I’ve signed up for this one myself, and the
link I’m giving you is not an affiliate link. I’ve learned
considerably more from Sean’s freebie newsletter over the years
than I have from most of the hundreds of marketing books I’ve
read. Go sign up at http://www.psychotactics.com/freezone before
he closes this offer (the opt-in form is waaaay at the bottom).
* In Beyond the Crisis, Futurologist Adjiedj Bakas explains the
natural flow of the economy with ups and downs. Researching
economical, technological, cultural and spiritual trends all over
the world, he envisions a way out of the current economic mess:
“Boom after Doom,” yet a totally different kind of Boom than
we used to know. He’s sold more than 500,000 copies of his
books, in more than 40 countries, in several languages–and he
not only appears frequently in major media, he’s also gotten
endorsements from Stedman Graham, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and a
number of other high-powered people. Lots and lots of bonuses
(over $6000 worth) on this big launch.
* Liz Lynch has an EASY, fast and effective way to build your
network… online and offline: http://SmartNetworkingNow.com For
starters, she has 74 networking gifts for you in a special
limited time gift basket, no purchase necessary. I’ve looked at
her book and it’s solid, practical advice. Yes, you can find
similar wisdom scattered around the Net, but it’s nice to get
it all in one place.
* Kathleen Gage has another no-cost teleseminar for you, on
November 19. Topic: Build A Sustainable Six Figure A Year Online
BusIness http://www.streetsmartsmarketing.com/Free6figure.htm
* Does “selling” feel like an icky, sticky, dirty word, to
you? It does to a lot of people but without sales, your business
will fail-leaving you feeling awful and depriving your prospects
of a needed resource! Don’t let that happen to you! Listen to a
replay call, “Stop Selling and Start Sharing: Learn How Your
Marketing Can Be Authentic, Be Effective and Change the World!”
Suzanne Evans, of Help More People, promises to “de-ick the
sales conversation for you once and for all.” Visit this page
to hear the replay. Since I write about similar ideas in my
award-winning sixth book, Principled Profit: Marketing That Puts
People First, I’ve very much looking forward to seeing what she
has to say.
* One of the books I’ve been reading recently is Overcomers,
Inc: a collection of experiences from *38* different authors on
how they overcame adversity. Some of the stories are openly
religious, others come from a completely different place. The
launch promotion is already under way, and includes a bonus
package from 95 different experts including Dr. Wayne Dyer, Janet
Atwood, and Joe Nunziata. If you need a big dose of inspiration
as the weather turns dreary, maybe this will be your personal
cure for Seasonal Affective Disorder (joke).
* If you’ve followed me for a long time, you know that
participation in online discussion groups has been the single
best marketing tool for going from a tiny shop with a small local
clientele (branching out from writing resumes to doing press
releases, book covers, web page copy, and the like) to being
internationally known as a copywriter, book shepherd, marketing
and publishing consultant, and speaker. Mohit Kumar has launched
a new no-cost Internet portal, Tweble, that tracks over a million
discussions online form around the world. What a cool concept!
Great for tracking stories and trends you can comment on or need
to know about. Oh yeah, and if you own a forum, there are some
revenue-sharing possibilities in the future. If you get value out
of places like Digg, Delicious and StumbleUpon, check out
* I’ve long been a believer in the incredible positive
benefits of being a “giver”; it’s something I’ve talked
about in Principled Profit and elsewhere. So I was delighted to
discover a book built entirely around this concept. The book, The
Power of Giving: How Giving Back Enriches Us All reveals
strategies and secrets of people who possess true wealth and
happiness: making the world a better place, which has the side
benefit of bringing a great deal back to you-but only if your
giving stems from sincerity rather than selfishness. I was also
quite impressed with the authors’ philosophy – and with their
commitment to give away 100% of the royalties they receive.
I’ve poked into several sections of the book and have found
gems all the way through. http://powerofgiving.org/paperback
* A Search Tool That’s Better than Google? How about one that
delivers your choice of results from Google, Yahoo, MSN, Yelp,
Wikipedia and various other places-and displays results before
you even click? Try it yourself on our search page – click
where it says “Say Hello to Search 2.0?” and start typing
your query.
* Sokule (pronounced so-cool) is a cool new Twitter-like social
network offering some revenue possibilities.
* This is by far the cheapest program on how to become a #1
bestseller that I’ve ever seen. 9 audios, plus support
materials and bonuses. I have not personally reviewed the
material but I did look at the scope of what it covers, seems
like a lot of good info. Again, I haven’t listened-just sharing
the information. http://shelhorowitz.com/go/yourbestseller/
Some of the opportunities mentioned pay a commission to Shel.
Shel maintains high quality standards for mention in this column,
and has either personally vetted the product, experienced
previous products of top quality from the provider, or mentions
in the write-up that he hasn’t seen it. Many products get
turned down if they don’t meet these criteria. If you’d like
to know if a particular program is commissionable, you’re
welcome to ask us.
