The Space for Expatriates
I am preparing a new book on retiring to Mexico. Some of you may have contributed to my books before and you know that they are successful. As usual this book will be published on Amazon for the Kindle Readers and other eBook readers and Smart Phones..
What am I looking for? What information do I want? I want participants to answer one simple question: Why should a person retire to the town, city or area where you live. Your presentation should be at least 500 words. It must have substance and go beyond stating that the weather is nice or the cost of living is low. Give examples, like the cost of specific items. Tell them that Costco and Walmart are close by. What social clubs or activities are available for expats.
You could also include information on festivals and tourist attractions in your area. You may include 2 photos of your choice. If you have over 1,000 words you may include 3 photos. These should be original photos and not copies found on the Internet. I don't wish to be sued.
The article should be written using MS Word or some compatible program. The font should be Arial
What will you receive out of this? If you are in business and have a website, there will be a link to your website with a short 2 or 3 line bio’. If you publish a Travel Blog, there will be a link to the blog. If you are a Realtor, if your article is done right, you will be viewed as a Real Estate Expert for that area.
If you own a Bed & Breakfast, yours will be number one should the reader visit your area.
You should receive tremendous exposure. The book will be given away for free 5 days per quarter. In a single 3 day free download period we have had as many as 2400 downloads. The majority of the people downloading have an interest in the product. This could mean tremendous exposure for your business be it Bed & Breakfast, Real Estate, Dive Shop, Restaurant or….
Any submissions should be in Arial 12 point. We prefer the block style rather than indented paragraphs. Photos should be submitted separately with instructions on where they should be placed.
Please respond to George Puckett at, firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line use, Why My Community, meaning Why Puerto Vallarta or Lake Chapala or Mazatlan or Why Cabo.
For sample articles see,
Yours may be shorter or longer but no less than 500 words.
We currently have 12 articles. Of those 12, eight are about retiring to different communities.
You may add 2 photos if you're under 1,000 words and 3 photos if over 1,000.
We are ahead of schedule. We are interested in more places which are off the beaten path. People should have the opportunity to read about places other than or in addition to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Lake Chapala and so on.
