When & Why To Sell Your Influence

Almost every week I receive an email like the following: 

 

Hi Eric,

I hope you're having a nice day.

We are interested in sending over a quality and relevant article/product/advertisement to your site
ericwbarfield.com as a contribution. Is this something you might consider? If yes, I can email over the details asap. Rest assured that it will be subject to your review. Please note that we'll also add references to our client.

Aside from the article/product/advertisement, we will also pay an administrative fee worth $XXX.

Please email me back if this is something that might interest you.

Looking forward to hearing from you, Eric.

iPad App Directory

One of my favorite bloggers just posted a great directory of iPad apps for music teachers on her site. I checked out a few of the apps, and found them to be really useful not just for lessons but also for my own development.

MainStage Mondays: Online Store Fall Sale

I NEVER post about sales on my online store (I prefer for people to stumble on to it on their own), but I’m having a back-to-school sale on my online MainStage store with a bunch of my stuff majorly discounted, including some items discounted to as much as 73% off and a pretty substantial discount on my 1-on-1 online MainStage training service right now. If you want to see what’s on sale at the moment, just click this link.
