Before you glance down at this huge list of promo opportunities and keel over at the thought of all this effort, please heed these notices:
#1 You don’t have to do all of these things
#2 You don’t have to do them all at once. You could spend some time each week tackling a few opportunities at a time.
#3 You’ve likely invested a hefty amount of time in creating your lead magnet and any follow-up email sequence. This will be completely wasted if nobody ever sees it.
