1. Our Computer Radio Show Makes Its Debut
Are you a techno geek? Or are you more "techno-meek?"
Either way, you'll learn how to make better use of the internet
by tuning into our new radio show every Saturday afternoon.
This week's guest is Bart Baggett, well known internet marketer
and even-better-known handwriting expert.
Bart will tell how he's used the internet to build his
credibility as an expert in his field--resulting in TV
appearances on CNN, Fox, Montel Williams and dozens of other
programs, plus more than 1300 radio shows.
Our program is called Roadrunner Radio. It's named for the
program's major sponsor, Roadrunner Highspeed Online, which is a
Time Warner-owned ISP in South Texas.
I co-host the program with Darrin Schroeder, a former software
executive. He's the techno-geek. I'm the "techno-meek."
The show is webcast and can be heard this Saturday afternoon,
2:00 PM Central (USA) at http://www.klup.com.

Past shows are archived there too.
You can listen to the uncut version of Bart's interview (about
25 minutes worth) through the audio library of the Academy

2. Advanced Media Marketing Article
Excerpted from the new ebook "Going Public: 10 Ways To Use The
Mass Media For Free Advertising, Internet Marketing, And Website
Promotion" by George McKenzie
The Difference Between "Advertising" And "Publicity"
Ask the average TV viewer, radio listener, or newspaper reader,
"What is the difference between "advertising" and "publicity" and
they probably wouldn't be able to tell you. They might even say
something like, "There is no difference. They're both the same
But they definitely are not. Not by a long way. And knowing the
difference can put a lot of money in your bank account. Not
knowing the difference can mean spending cash for something you
could just as easily get for free.
Take this example:
Although I have spent most of my adult life in broadcasting, my
wife and I operated a chain of Subway Sandwich Shops for nearly
We were the first franchisees in South Texas to open a property
inside a convenience store. Almost anything that is a "first" is
likely to draw media attention. So I pitched the story to a
reporter at the San Antonio Business Journal, telling him that
"strategic alliances" between operations like Subway and Texaco
were a growing trend (a "trend" is another automatic media
attention-grabber) and the Business Journal could show itself to
be out front by doing a feature.
About two weeks later, Dianne and I showed up on the front page,
with sandwiches in our hands and a huge Subway sign in the
It was great publicity because it was free. I calculated that if
we had bought a similar amount of advertising (not free), it
would have cost around eight thousand dollars.
My friend and radio co-host Darrin Schroeder can vouch for the
power of free publicity.
Darrin and I do a weekly computer talk show on KLUP Radio, A-M
9-3-0 in San Antonio (webcast at http://www.klup.com). But
Darrin used to be vice-president of a small browser developer in
Recently the San Antonio Express News ran a story about some new
software that had just hit the market. Darrin called the
reporter and offered a "follow-up" about his company, which had
just rolled out a similar product called CrystalPort.
Result: front page story, with a color picture, in the business
section several days later.
Both these success stories resulted from a single phone call to a
reporter. Both generated thousands of dollars worth of free
publicity without a dime being spent on advertising.
And there you have the difference between advertising and publicity.
Anyone in the media will be happy to sell you advertising.
Publicity is free.
In other words, as one of my friends in the public relations
business once told me,
"Advertising is what you pay for. Publicity is what you pray
The most successful marketers know how to pray, and what to do to
make sure their prayers are answered.

5. Quotes and Attempts at Humor
In honor of the debut of our radio show, here's some relevant
humor--although you probably won't find it funny if you were
bitten by the BADTRANS bug this week.
OPRAH WINFREY VIRUS: Your 200MB hard drive suddenly shrinks to
80MB,and then slowly expands back to 200MB.
AT&T VIRUS: Every three minutes it tells you what great service
you are getting.
MCI VIRUS: Every three minutes it reminds you that you're paying
too much for the AT&T virus.
PAUL REVERE VIRUS: This revolutionary virus does not horse
around. It warns you of impending hard disk attack---once if by
LAN, twice if by C:>.
POLITICALLY CORRECT VIRUS: Never calls itself a "virus", but
instead refers to itself as an "electronic microorganism."
TED TURNER VIRUS: Colorizes your monochrome monitor.
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER VIRUS: Terminates and stays resident.
It'll be back.
GOVERNMENT ECONOMIST VIRUS: Nothing works, but all your
diagnostic software says everything is fine.
NEW WORLD ORDER VIRUS: Probably harmless, but it makes a lot of
people really mad just thinking about it.
ADAM AND EVE VIRUS: Takes a couple of bytes out of your Apple.
CONGRESSIONAL VIRUS: The computer locks up, screen splits
erratically with a message appearing on each half blaming the
other side for the problem.
ELVIS VIRUS: Your computer gets fat, slow and lazy, then self
destructs; only to resurface at shopping malls and service
stations across rural America.
CONGRESSIONAL VIRUS #2: Runs every program on the hard drive
simultaneously, but doesn't allow the user to accomplish anything
STAR TREK VIRUS: Invades your system in places where no virus
has gone before.
HEALTH CARE VIRUS: Tests your system for a day, finds nothing
wrong, and sends you a bill for $4,500.
And our favorite here in the Lone Star State:
TEXAS VIRUS: Makes sure that it's bigger than any other file.
SERIOUS REMINDER: Take it from someone who once made this
mistake (and regretted it for days afterward): NEVER OPEN AN
ATTACHMENT if you don't know where it came from.
Ezine Marketing Machine. by Rick Beneteau If you don't have
much money to spend promoting your business or if you're sick and
tired of wasting time and money on gimmicks that don't work (like
bulk email, free-for-all link sites, classified ads and so
forth), then this site will be a tremendous resource.
6. Recommended Resource-Make Your Site SELL! (MYSS!)
Call this update of Ken Evoy's Internet best-seller a
"Site For More Buys."
Don't worry. The book is better than my attempt at a rhyme.
This resource-"FULL" e-book met with such widespread acclaim
that it far-surpassed all expectations. Lauded by
gurus and netrepreneurs alike, MYSS! quickly became
recognized as the "bible" for selling on the Net.
Three fundamental principles form the foundation and account for
the success of Ken Evoy's internet monster bestseller...
o Develop a GREAT product
o Write a site that SELLS with deadly effectiveness
o Attract TARGETED visitors (i.e. traffic) to the site
Evoy helps visitors built their own profitable little empires.
with nothing more than a computer, a modem, and Make
Your Site SELL!.
And now the rock-solid tradition of quality continues.
Evoy has introduced the SECOND edition of his flagship product,
And if you loved MYSS!, just wait 'til you see MYSS!
MYSS! 2002 is twice as complete, twice as big, and twice the fun
of the original! It's BIGGER, BETTER and BULGING with value --
FOUR comprehensive volumes, 1500+pages! And...
Like all SiteSell products, MYSS! 2002 is extremely
accessible... only CAD$39.95 which is WELL under USD$30.
Completely current, completely comprehensive -- MYSS! 2002
is the ONLY resource book you will need to profitably SELL
on the Net. Better still...
In typical SiteSell fashion, MYSS! 2002 OVERdelivers with a
knockout punch... one that sends competitors reeling blinded
against the e-commerce ropes.
