  1. This is exactly the kind of help I desperately need to grow my online business! I feel I have the perfect niche – everyone has a birthday and who isn’t looking for birthday freebies and discounts right now right? But writing compelling articles, pitches and posts can be a struggle for me. I won’t even mention the struggle of writing a press release! I truly believe this ebook would not only boost my confidence, but help get my website/blog in front of millions!

    I would be honored to do an interview to share the transformation of my business!

    Thank you Moms in a Blog and Indie Biz Chicks for this wonderful opportunity! :)

  2. I have just recently decided to pursue my dream in web design and feel this book could help me promote my new business. I have designed websites for years and love to do it, but now I just have to figure out how to sell my designs to others.

    I am at a lost at where to start on promoting my business. I’m also really interested in the face to face networking because that /is/ the scariest part for me right now

  3. I have been going at my business for almost 4 years and just need to get it to the next level! I have yet to get that “big pr break” i have been hoping for so maybe this can help me get there!

  4. After losing my job of almost 12 years to downsizing in March, I have been trying to grow my own business, which I’ve had for 8 1/2 years. I’ve never really tried to “grow” it because I couldn’t handle the overload of business while working my other job. So, it seems like a perfect time for me to do this. I think this information would be very helpful as I take things to the next level. Thanks for considering me!

  5. This would be a wonderful gift to win. I have never had a mentor for press releases and I know I’m missing out on a valuable marketing tool. I believe learning how to write and submit press releases will help my business grow in a new direction.

    I would love to follow the ebook help and then have you interview me.four weeks later. I hope that not only will I have great news on business growth, but I hope to help the ebook writer with my thoughts about what did work and what might work better.

  6. I’m a new blogger and need help promoting my website!!! I have no clue how to start!

  7. Since I am going full speed ahead with Pillows of Lavender and launching an affiliate program during the grand opening in September, I have to make my advertising and promotion $$ work for me. I am working hard to ensure I have all the bases covered in time. I would love the opportunity to win Power , Publicity and Promotions and learn some of Crissy’s tips , it would be perfect timing for me.
    I am also happy to share my success after applying what I have learned with an interview by Moms in a Blog.

  8. Oh, this would be perfect for me! I have started selling nursing covers and baby legging, and currently I just do it from craigslist, and another local free classifieds. I’m just a stay-at-home mom trying to make a little extra money. I would love to learn how to get to more people! Thanks for the opportunity. I would also love to be interviewed afterwards, if I was the winner!

  9. I have a new online boutique Sassy Pink Boutique, we’ve been open for about 3 months now. I’ve gotten some orders and have done a lot of publicity online but would love to see what are some new options for local adveritsing! Maybe something I’m missing out on!
