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…
It's a completely independent effort, and a lot of sweat went into it. I hope you find it helpful--and perhaps even pass it on. :-)
bookmarked. Pretty cool :)
Saving to Google Docs now. Will read this weekend. Your effort is appreciated by many I'm sure. Best of luck with sales.
Reading chapter one right now. So far, so good.
Welcome and thanks!!
Thanks all--very glad to hear that it was welcome! :-)
someone had to do it
I'm glad you did. ;-)
love the method you're doing this by. great job!
Thanks--I'm pretty happy with how it's going. I was initially rather unsure about releasing it like this. Ultimately, though, it's turning out quite nicely.
As a result of the "free" part, a lot of folks are sharing it, which is really important to us. (We're more interested in people reading it than making a profit from it.)
Meanwhile, it seems like some are interested enough to carry on and buy it. This is quite nice too, as it was an awful lot of work.
I like how Girl Talk released his latest album. You can download it for free or pay what you think it's worth. Seems like a pretty sensible approach. I liked his enough to pay for it. :-)
I bought it a few months ago, and thought it was an easy read with a lot of good info.
Came across your youtube vids somehow and that is how I found the book.
hi karj.. welcome to the PVN. best of luck with your book.
you should become more of a poster her than a viewer..
we can share knowledge or stuff on how to make a book.. im sure most here would be happy if you shared your experiences.. and who knows you might become a staple of QBN.. the next tara_gee or me or some other random.. but either way nice to drop a line in your direction..
Thanks Karj, do you have any FFFFound Invites?
Oh man, that's awesome Karj... i'm definitely buying a book, please send me a FFFFound invite too.
looks good man, I just searched iBooks though to buy it, no luck.
