Ready To Get Started But Overwhelmed With All The Information On Writing, ePublishing & Marketing On The Web? Then Let Me Help You Get Started…
The web is saturated with information. A basic search on writing alone will send you over 1,040,000,000 results in Google. That is enough to drive anyone crazy with information overload. That’s why I’ve created this page in order to get you started with the basics.
One of the first things that I did to generate income when I couldn’t scrounge up any clients in my private practice back in 2002 was to write my first ebook on relationships. I wrote and sold that ebook on my first website and that served as the start of my career as a digital author. Everyone has at least one book in them and if I get my hands on you, you probably have at least four or five great ideas! In the meantime though, here is one of my most popular resources to get you started writing and publishing your first ebook – my ebook publishing guide.

If I were to start my business from scratch there are a few very basic things that I would have done differently or let me say correctly , and evidently this is not a unique situation. Many of my new clients have made the same errors and therefore we have to backtrack to fix something or change something that could have been avoided from the beginning. So I’d like to give you a headstart…
Before I create a product, a service, or even write an article — I conduct keyword research. I think it has been critical to my success in the search engines. I get a lot of FREE traffic from the search engines, especially Google, because I make sure that I write titles and use domain names that are a delicate balance of reader + search engine friendly. In fact, this should be before domain hosting because if you want to select a great domain name, you should have already conducted basic keyword research in your niche.
This is a VERY important skill to learn or outsource in your business. It’s very easy to do. You can use free tools such as the Google Keyword Tool to conduct your research but there are also a few other steps you will need to make in order to get all the relevant stats, or you can use more robust keyword selection tools that all the pros use and the best ones are Market Samurai and Long Tail Pro. You can download a lite version of Market Samurai for free to test it out but Long Tail Pro is a little more newbie friendly. I strongly recommend either tool. I use them both at least once a week and they have been invaluable. These are one of those bright and shiny marketing tools that actually live up to their hype.

The best way to get a taste of any expert you are selecting as a mentor is to try their free stuff. If you get a sample of something that is great, high-quality, etc., can you imagine what something that you’d have to pay for will be like? I’ve found that to consistently be the case in mentors I have worked with, and I think that you will find the same with me. At least I really strive for that:)
So the best way to get your feet wet with me is to sample some of my free but highly targeted information which you can find on my Free Resources page AND the other way is to make sure that you are on my list. I send members of my list articles every week that will address some of your biggest business stumbling blocks and put you ahead of your competitors towards building a solid six-figure business. When you subscribe today, you will also get a copy of my new guide on ebook publishing.

One last thing before we go. I cannot be a better mentor or guide to you without communication between us. While I do have a small staff of people who support my business, I really try to respond to most of my emails and comments myself. So please feel free to let me know the issues you are facing in your business and what types of issues you’d like me to address. Whatever you’re stuck on, there are probably 10 more people stuck on the same issue, so don’t be shy. While I have a social media presence on almost every site known to mankind – truth be told – is that you can connect with me the quickest on my Facebook Fan page.
Remember that it’s most important to do something NOW then to wait on perfection later!
