    When a Nurse enters a hospital room carrying an injection, patients react in many different ways. Some pull the covers over their heads, many show immediate signs of relief, others start to whimper, and some have been known to prepare for a knock-down-drag-out confrontation. Hopefully, you have never had a patient become violently aggressive. What kind of reactions have you seen?

    I'm seeing a lot of nurses writing book(s). Smart and experienced nurses sharing their knowledge. This is good for the profession.

    What surprises me is that there's clearly no marketing plan. What I usually find is the author placing a link to amazon to download the book - that's it!!!!

    How do you expect to sell if all you do is link to amazon?

    YOU CAN DO BETTER!

    Chances are there's a lot of competition in amazon for the same keywords. And, word-of-mouth only works if people actually read the book. If people don't know your book exists how do you expect to make a sale?

    amazon is not a miracle cure. You still need to SELL the book.

    The best thing you can do to increase sales is to create a landing page on your site. A landing page is basically a sales pitch to purchase.

    Having a landing page on your site will...

    1 ) Improve brand / trust
    2 ) Improve traffic to your site
    3 ) Increase sales opportunities
    4 ) Increase opportunities to create a following

    Once you have a landing page, you can start linking to the landing page instead of the amazon page. An increase in direct traffic will increase your organic traffic. Organic traffic is the best marketing tool. It doesn't cost a dime, but it does take work.

    The more orgainic traffic you have the more successful your next pitch will be.

    Don't forget to include the landing page link on your allnurses profile page. This will improve your backlink profile. Also, each time you write an article your homepage link, as well as your social network links, are visible to all the readers.

    allnurses.com is the largest nursing network in the world - using it smart WILL increase traffic to YOUR site.

    Workaholics are everywhere these days. Some people just have a hard time complying with healthy boundaries when it comes to work. Many times that comes from trouble delegating... they'd rather do it themselves than trust someone else to do it. But there are times they just need to lie down, keep their mouth shut, and hand over the reins to someone who truly is skilled enough to handle the job... Do you know anyone like this?

    Thank you Sassy-Kat, RN for the winning caption. You won $100!

    Nurses try very hard to practice safe and effective infection control measures. You've just finished with your patient, start to take off the disposable gloves, and there it is, a hole. It's as if you can hear it taunt you as it says, "sometimes meconium just happens". How many times has this happened to you?

    Republicans will vote on another health care bill before the end of the month. What do you think will happen? Pass or Fail?

    It's a big mess with them.

    Personally, I think they were cutting corners for bigger profits and now it's biting them in the arse.

    I wouldn't OPT-IN to anything on their site.
