New book discussion forum helps jumpstart your mediation marketing

It’s been a treat to get emails from those of you who’ve read Making Mediation Your Day Job: How to Market Your ADR Business Using Mediation Principles You Already Know and learn the new clarity, new energy or new ideas you walked away with.

Some of you have also expressed interest in a place for open discussion about the book and the exercises in it, a place to keep the momentum going and to ask questions that have come up.

You asked for it and I’ve created it. I’ve just put the finishing touches on the new Mediator Tech Discussion Forum and it’s there waiting for you, with a special section just for those of you who’ve read the book. Use the forum to ask questions, share successes, ponder challenges and learn from one another. Some forum use ideas include:

  • Explore some of the book’s exercises in greater depth.
  • Ask about sections of the book for which you’d like more information.
  • Start a mini-group discussion on a topic from the book or anything else associated with marketing and managing a successful ADR practice.
  • Get a little support when you’re blue or you’ve had a particularly tough month.
  • Ask about a technology you’re considering and gather feedback from anyone else who’s used it.

I do hope you’ll register to use it (it’s free and your email doesn’t get put on any marketing lists) and continue to boost your mediation marketing energy!

So you can now purchase a PDF version of Making Mediation Your Day Job directly from No additional program to download (unless you don’t already have a PDF viewer on your computer, but most come with them these days), no shipping, no trees killed, no waiting.
