(PRWEB) January 4, 2007
The Blog Squad™ has named Erik Feder the winner of their "Ideal Client" contest; he will be featured and mentored on blogging and internet marketing during a 13 week live radio show on VoiceAmerica™ Channel, http://www.voice.voiceamerica.com. The radio show Blogging and Beyond debuts January 11, Thursdays at 11 a.m. ET and runs through April 5.
Erik Feder was voted by readers to be the best candidate of five finalists showcased on The Blog Squad's interactive site http://www.BloggingandBeyond.com. He is author and publisher of a series of books on where to find parking in Manhattan, and in other major cities (http://www.wheretofindparking.com).
Feder says, "I've been convinced for some time now that blogs are a great way to create a buzz about my parking books and new internet service. I've dabbled a bit trying to market through blogs, but it's one area I haven't been able to crack. I'm a quick learner and my hope is that through some expert guidance from The Blog Squad, I can get that word-of-mouth thing going and once the sparks start to fly, it will catch like wildfire."
The Blog Squad™expert team of Patsi Krakoff, Psy. D. and Denise Wakeman will guide Feder through the steps to set up a blog, a newsletter, a shopping cart, and other Internet tools for his business during the 13 week show. At the same time, listeners can follow the radio show's suggested steps to implement simple online tools to grow their own businesses.
A select group of listeners has opted in to follow along with the radio show in the Blogging and Beyond Mentor Group for a small fee. Others may join the mentor program until January 11 through http://www.blogsquadcontest.com/mentor.
"This was a fun contest, and we're looking forward to working with Erik to see how much we can grow his business in a short time," Wakeman said. "By the end of the 13 week radio show, Erik along with our mentor group will have a strong Internet marketing system in place that works to attract more clients."
"Blogging is no longer a new trend," adds Dr. Krakoff. "It is a fabulous opportunity for all businesses to take their message to the public, in a way that connects authentically with clients and customers."
But blogging isn't enough. The Blog Squad™ created the program Blogging and Beyond to show business professionals which essential marketing tools work together for effortlessly attracting clients with limited tech skills, no staff, and a small budget.
