Received promotion with disappointing pay raise. Should I ask for more?

Just received a long-awaited promotion. However, the accompanying pay raise was a massive disappointment, and now I'm strongly considering looking for a new job. Is it worth it to ask for more money? If not, should I stay at my current company or find a new job? [more inside]

Are there any particularly good books or articles about self promotion?

I have eight months until a big book release, and I figure my main job until then is to promote my blog and my book. So how do I go about that in an effective way? I know *some* of what I'm supposed to do (write lots of good blog content, guest post a lot, get backlinks), but even for those parts, I imagine there are better and worse ways of going about it (asking people to link to certain articles doesn't seem to work very well, and I haven't had much luck with guest posting offers lately.) Any good books or articles on this subject? Or suggestions of your own?

How do I promote my new podcast?

I just posted the second episode of my podcast and alerted my friends on social media and message boards. I want to reach out to the larger world though. The podcast is freeform (inspired by WFMU, John Peel, Henry Rollins) but so far has had a general focus of avant-garde and "new music" (inspired in part by John Schaefer's New Sounds). Are there sites/communities where I can let people know I exist without making it seem like spamming?

Ultimate Schwag

A client has asked me, of all people, to suggest some awesome schwag ideas for a major international advertising event next year. At this event, every booth has schwag, and we want the schwag that will outschwag all other schwag. The booth will be handling 800+ people a day, and focused on "interactivity", so the schwag in question should be customizable on the spot. We have 6+ months to get whatever it is ready. Essentially, the sky's the limit. Name your ideal schwag. [more inside]

Interview driving traffic to a website?

I have a two part question. I've just interviewed well known performer who has just released his first solo CD. He owns all of the rights to the lyrics and music, and his own company published the CD. A radio station I'm associated with plans to put the interview online, as well as broadcast it within the week. If the musician is OK with me putting it on my own website, how might it drive traffic to his site and my site? And is there anything extra I can to make it attract listeners and drive that traffic?

You scratch my back, I... hate everything you stand for?

You have a business. One of your customers has a business. He wants to cross-promote, co-produce events, etc. He subscribes to the "there's a sucker born every minute" business model, charging way too much for crap. He could bring you lots of new customers, but you don't want to give him any more "marks." How do you proceed? Or do you?

Are there craft blog events?

I have a blog that used to have some readership. I think I got people interested mostly by participating in food blog events (where someone hosts on their blog, names a theme, and then everyone makes something, blogs about it, and gets a link in the event post. There are so many of these that there are even blogs that aggregate all the food blog events). Then I had to move my blog and lost most of my visitors. Also I now post a lot more art/craft content than food. I assumed there would be similar things for my new topics, but I just can't find them. Do you know of any recurring art/craft blog events with open participation, or any websites that catalog such things?
