Ilise Benun:
Marketing Mentor for Copywriters and Creative Pros

“The key to self-promotion is persistence. You can't start and stop. Building relationships with people is a constant seed-planting and watering process. So if you consider yourself introverted or shy, get over it – at least during the time you spend promoting yourself. The message you must convey is this: I have something of value to offer to you. Sit right down so I can tell you all about it.”

— Ilise Benun
