Anchorage, AK (PRWEB) September 10, 2005
Teleseminars are the latest thing since blogging. BookGrapeVine.com is capitalizing on the technology helping readers connect to authors by offering a series of free teleseminars.
"Bookgrapevine.com is the best place for readers to connect with authors thru teleseminars, virtual book signings and virtual tours. We just released our fall schedule of teleseminars and it's jam-packed with events for everybody, from individuals to businesses, from scrapbookers to seniors," said C.L. Kirk, site coordinator.
"We are excited to offer free seminars to the public, covering the gambit from how pick the right price for your goods and services, to how to achieve goals, to how to break into mystery writing, to how to increase your memory so you avoid those 'senior moments.'"
The concept is exceedingly simple. With just a phone and a web browser you can participate. No special technical knowledge is required. Just register a seminar, and then call in on the date designated. The site sends you reminders and each event is recorded.
"Technology is so confusing and most people don't have the time or patience to deal with elaborate 'web conferencing'. A phone and a web browser is all you need. You follow along with the slide presentation on the web,' explains Kirk. You call a ÂconferenceÂ phone number at the designated time while watching the slide presentation from your web browser. You can ask questions via email, chat or the phone during the seminar. 'The great thing is you can learn something in the comfort of home while in your pajamas!"
But no sales pitches here. 'We promote the author's book before and after the seminar and provide special discounts on the book, but we make sure each speaker understands the important thing is to teach the attendees at least three things to take with them. It's amazing what you can learn in one phone call.Â
'We realize the potential of this merging of technologies early on with our first seminar on scrapbooking by Angie Pedersen, author of 'The Book of Me'. 95 people signed up. The attendees commented they loved the direct contact. ÂMary McAvoy, agrees. 'This was the first time I had ever tried this format so I thought it was great. I am a big fan of Angie's books but I am not likely to get to one of her seminars as I am in a rural area in Canada.'
