Self-Syndicate Your Own Newspaper Advice Column
A how-to manual by Andrea Reynolds

Do you want to generate multiple sales for your
advice column... beyond your local newspaper?

selfsynd

Think about this: If you were to generate contracts with 100 daily newspapers for writing one weekly advice column, at an average rate of $30 per paper (some will pay more, some will pay less) you could be grossing, potentially, $150,000 a year, not to mention the increased book sales and paid speaking engagements which will result from your visibility.

While there is no guarantee of this kind of success -- there are so many factors which are out of your control -- a good proposal package and the right kind of approach, a tested approach, will increase your chances of success. And your success may be much greater than you calculated!
