This is the project for the attorney.
I would like an automatic reminder system associated with the course I teach for the benefit of the attendees. Essentially, I teach them how to get published and this will allow me to automatically follow-up with them through e-mail. They should receive messages at the intervals listed after they take my course.
2 weeks - Did you discuss your interest in writing with your supervisor or the marketing/business development/communications professional with whom you work?
3 weeks - Did you visit Web sites for ideas?
3 weeks - Did you list three topics that interest you most.
3 weeks - Did you select topics on which you can provide clarity or practical guidance?
3 1/2 weeks - Did you select a person with whom you can collaborate/co-author?
3 1/2 weeks - Did you select five individuals with whom you would like to connect and locate their contact information?
4 weeks - Did you select three publications to pitch or ask a client what he or she reads?
5 weeks - Did you draft a sample pitch?
6 weeks - Did you follow up on your completed idea with a supervisor and/or marketing/communications professional?
6 weeks - Did you consider appropriate ethical issues associated with your idea?
Each question should have a Yes or No answer. If yes, response should automatically appear, if possibly, as "Excellent. Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions." My phone number and e-mail address should follow.
If no, it should say something like:
You originally noted the following: (and then insert from the fields completed at the outset)
Follow that with the same line, "Please feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions." Include my contact information.
