Why write a book?

My coaching mentor happened to be a former financial planner, my boss for a few years, and "the father of coaching".  Thomas Leonard taught me that writing wasn't as difficult as I made it out to be. He could, and often did, design a new website every day -- including all the words of another new coaching program.   He wrote 100's of top ten articles and turned the best of the best into a book.  He also offered the coaches he was training the opportunity to include their own top ten lists on his site.

What Advisors Need To Understand About Spam

Article Banks Are Internet Marketing Gold

2017-11-04T01:23:09-04:00November 27th, 2015|Writing Articles|0 Comments

At the start of internet marketing, this marketing strategy used to be called "article marketing."   Today it's called, "content marketing".  Same thing, for the same reasons. What are article banks? Article banks are two-way websites where authors "deposit" articles to invest and where lenders "take" the article to use. The "interest" someone pay for using an article consists of a bio or resource box. Each article bank site includes guidelines for authors and potential publishers. Authors retain first rights - retain ownership - to articles placed on article banks.
