Giving it away... Feb 25, 10, 2:35 p.m.
I've never posted in the "Public" area before although I tend to pop in every once in a while to see what's going on. (My reason for saying so, is that if what I'm posting here doesn't seem appropriate, I welcome you to tell me to "go away.")
Last year I wrote a book on marketing for small businesses. I'm part of a small design studio, so it's personally familiar territory, and we've helped a number of folks with these sorts of challenges.
The book has been well received so far, but we really want to get it out to more people. So, we're going to release it online, one chapter at a time, completely free.
The first two chapters are now available, and you can find the full Table of Contents here: http://www.speakhuman.com/look-i…
