Numero Uno – Financial Aspect. We have many reasons for sharing, but one of the most logical benefits to doubling up with another person, is financial.
All of us have commitments and obligations to family, friends and work, not to mention the holidays. When conferences and workshops beckon but funds are rapidly sinking — pool your money and share the hefty expense of Gas, Hotel Room, Food, purchasing Table Space (along w/sharing the obligatory booth time)…PLUS:
Swag! Pens, Magnets, Bookmarks – all with your ‘shared’ blog/website stenciled across it in blazing “READ ME” letters. Postcards – where you can double-side, listing both of your latest novels/anthologies – or, if you happen to have (shared) told each other about an open submission and BOTH get your stories in it: Print the Cover on one side and list a few of each of your Books and Blog on the other. Again, a win win situation.
By aligning with just one other person, your marketing efforts enable you to double your exposure to any media blitz that person participates in. ANY. Including chatting up relatives, co-workers, agents, publishers – whoever they meet, anywhere. Networking opportunities abound and you don’t even have to be there to reap the benefits.
