Steve Jobs said: “Design is not JUST what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
First impressions are everything. That’s why a beautiful website it's a crucial part on your business.
It is with high regard and esteemed pleasure that I express my sincerest recommendation for the company PublishingAddict.com owned by Radu Balas. Their creativity, quality control, swift execution and highly competitive fee structure make this company an invaluable asset.
I read this book in one sitting, and felt there was good information here. I bought it as part of an offer that I do plan to take advantage of because I think that it could be beneficial. I liked how the author talked about the business end of writing. I do think a lot of authors miss the mark in that area because we're so focused on the writing aspect.
The section on blogging is very important/helpful. I always knew/heard that blogging was a good approach but didn't see the full importance until I read all the reasons why.
This is a fantastic and very thorough plan on how authors can truly leverage their book and brand. As a publisher and marketer for authors, this will be required reading for anyone starting out. And, coincidentally, for any author who needs to get back to the basics.
We all know non-fiction books don't generate a ton of revenue. The real payday is in the brand and extra products and services we offer. Radu helps to clarify not only the design but positioning of this brand for us.
OMG! I never knew what “platform” was until I read this book. I also didn't realize the importance of cohesive marketing and making it all work together. This book tells you what to do and equally as important, what NOT to do to be seen as a credible author, and how to create and HOLD a following of loyal visitors to my site who are waiting to hear what I have to say.
It's a good feeling knowing I have this backup reference. It's become such a valuable tool for me. And it's really user friendly and broken down for an easy read.
