We’ve been talking about getting promotion for your book or business using news events of good causes.

Some people ask “Where do you find the time?”.. and I say take your inspiration from Juan Mann

Free Hugs Campaign

Watch the video and you’ll feel much better today.

A group on Facebook have formed that can give you an even better chance to promote this good cause. Sept. 10th is Hug Day and thousands of Facebook Friends are participating.

So here’s you easy promotional to do list

1. Post a comment here to say you will give hugs (and anything else you’re doing to promote) Be sure to include a link to your post, facebook page, book web site or home page (just one is best)

2. Make sure you’re on Facebook. There are over 1 million new users a week.. some of them have to be looking for you. Add me as a Facebook friend then join the event there.

3. Tell your mailing list, your family, your friends, your readers about it. You’ll likely get some hugs, start you own mini-movement.. but even if you don’t, you’ll get some good publicity.

4. Take a photo of you giving someone a hug. Post it on the Facebook event page.

Does it work?

If you are doubting it.. you haven’t watched the video above.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you on this. I’ll accept hugs.. or a link back to this post.
