    How many emails do you get a day? Of these, how many do you delete without opening? How many do you open and then delete after reading a few words?

    Do you want your emails to be ignored? In this podcast, I describe effective practices to greatly improve the chances of recipients opening and responding to the emails you send.

    • Why is the headline of your email so important?
    • How long should a headline be?
    • How can a headline best target your reader?
    • What power words effectively capture your reader’s attention?
    • Why is “Truth in advertising” so important?

    One of the biggest ideas that stops people from writing is that it’s hard work. I’ve mentioned before in this podcast how greatly our school experiences have conditioned us into a lot of negative beliefs about writing. This is one of those beliefs.

    A belief isn’t necessarily a truth. We make beliefs based on what we experienced, and you may have found writing difficult in school. Maybe the assigned subjects bored you. Maybe you got confused about outlines and footnotes.

    Don’t give a thought to how good it is until you’ve established the practice of writing. It does make perfect.

    • Is writing really hard work?
    • How you can stop believing that
    • You’re not in school any more.

    Two of the biggest mistakes new writers make with first drafts are:

    They forget that this is A FIRST DRAFT. You can make mistakes, ignore correct spelling. Get those words down.

    They also slow themselves down by tormenting themselves for not spending enough hours writing.

    I will share with you some personally tested methods for not doing either of these two things.

    • Why people have so much trouble with first drafts
    • Tested techniques to make writing a first draft MUCH easier
    • How to overcome fear of outlining
    • How outlining makes writing easier
    • The magic of reverse outlining

    In this podcast, I break down the major benefits of being published. Some are practical; some are personal. All are important.

    For some people, the chance to achieve these benefits will be enough to get them into motion. Others need more.

    • Why is the headline of your email so important?
    • How long should a headline be?
    • How can a headline best target your reader?
    • What power words effectively capture your reader’s attention?
    • Why is “Truth in advertising” so important?

    Hi, I’m Pat Iyer. I am a nurse, an author, a ghostwriter, an editor and book coach. Yes, I know that is a mouthful. I put this podcast together to focus on how your writing builds your authority, credibility and ability to get business. This show will feature topics on the process and style of writing, tips on writing and publishing and marketing books, copywriting, and blogging. In short, anything that helps you get business through your writing.

    This weekly podcast will give you shortcuts, tips, strategies and support around your writing projects.

    As of this episode, I have written or coauthored or coedited 48 books, with 2 more planned for 2020. My books created jobs, established my credibility in my field, gave me new opportunities, and built my name recognition. I love to talk about writing and I’m sold on the value of writing to bring you business and hope you are too.
