One of the best ways to gain influence and recognition in the Web 2.0 environment is through interviews on sites such as BlogTalk Radio and blogs like Writers in Business as I have been privileged to be interviewed on both.

When you can get interviews or guest blog, this is a way to gain recognition and influence for your writing or your book. Network marketing is not just about sales, but about building relationships. The relationships you build and the more your learn about marketing and business are what can help you become know and searched out.

Today’s publishing environment dictates that authors market and promote their book, for freelance writers, you need to market your writing by getting it known via networking and marketing your writing, editing, or other services you offer to clients.
