Ask yourself:
WATSS In It For Me? (Working Artists Today Survival Series)

Find out WATSS in it for you:

<>Understand why the national economy is not a factor in your work. However, the real factor is as plain as the nose on your face.

<>Learn why artists must now focus on "their own back yard" to succeed. Hint: This has nothing to do with where you live and work.

<>Find clarity about your role as CEO of YOU-The-Artist-Business.

<>Get immediate Action Steps you can take as soon as you finish the call.

<>Make a mind shift and calm your fears, if you have any, and know you really are in charge of your business.

<>Discover low or no-cost publicity ideas! Learn from a veteran expert full-time performer who is great at translating "marketing speak" into "artist speak."

You will Learn:

<>Which traffic-generating no-cost action you should be doing every time you make a blog post. It will only take you about two minutes a day.

<>To create a daily work that will bring traffic to your web page. This will take you some focused-time each day, but you already block out marketing time every day, right? Right?

<>To create and commit to your "D.I.E or Donít Survive" habit for daily success.

<>To explore the free online service that will build your followers and friends list.

Most online seminars like this run between $97 and $227 for each 90-minute segment.

However, I am working performing artist and itís killing me watching other artists panic
and be so willing to sell themselves and their art short all because of the "economy" problem. The economy is not the problem.

The research I have been doing has been truly focused. This WATSS seminar is for the working performing artist or those who really want to go way beyond being just a hobbyist.

There is little touchy-feely, warm-fuzzy in this packed-with-content teleseminar. I am serious about my commitment to your success and to the growth of the performing arts.

For real marketing training, you would normally pay between $97 and $227 for a teleseminar like this.

Nevertheless, I know many artists still do not completely understand investing in their business in order to grow as an artist, so some of you may have just passed out when you read those numbers.

Therefore, for this first of the WATSS calls, I am looking for artists who put the "work" in working artist. We decided to filter out the chronic workshop junkies or the sign-up-for-everything folks.

Look at this! Our first WATSS training offering is "donations only." Register with $.01, $1, $2.27 $227 or whatever amount you choose.

You can register for this WATSS "Grumpy Burgers" workshop for your "pay what you want fee" of any amount of money. Use our Paypal link below. You can use your credit card if you do not have a Paypal account. We will never see your credit card number, just your registration request with your name and Email. No, we are not keeping track of who pays what. Just pay what you want to register for this 90-minute teleseminar. Pay a penny, pay $500 or anywhere in between!

When we get your "pay what you want" fee of any amount, we will send you a confirmation Email within 24 hours. YOU MUST OPEN the confirmation email and click on the link inside to complete your registration.

LOOK for this Email! Check your "junk file" just in case. You will have it within 24 hours.

By the way, do not take this seminar if you will be unable to take notes. Have paper and pencil handy, you are going to create strategies while you are on this call.

There will be a chance for Q&A. When you register, you will get instruction on how to pre-submit your questions.

The call will be recorded but we are not releasing the audio right away, if ever. To participate, you will be making a call to a 712 area code, so if you still pay long-distance charges then, that is on your dime for this teleseminar. If you do still pay long-distance, go look in the mirror and poke yourself in the eye, silly.

This material is under copyright. You may record it for your own use. You may not use that recording for anyone else or any other group. Tell them to get on this call. You may NOT share the exclusive call-in phone number and your private PIN# with anyone not paid and registered.

Now is the time to take action.

Pay what you want, $.01 to $500.
