Websites close to completion for marketing my book

man raising success hands small

I am almost complete with this website. I need to add the connections to my other websites for how-to articles. Today I can launch this one. The other two are coming along. I have a ways for but EmergencePublishingGroup is pretty well complete. By the end of this week I will start my marketing for my book. Wish me luck. Well, it is not totally luck but a lot of hard work. I have a few hurdles to go over, like reviews but oh well, it wouldn’t be fun without hurdles. What do you do for reviews?

Marketing my non-fiction eBook- Tips, Process, Success


What Direction Should We Take

This blog will be about the journey I will be taking to market my new series “Color Me Successful’. There will be marketing tips, and success for you and I to learn from. I would appreciate any and all comments to help others learn as well. What has your journey been like? I am now in the process of updating all my websites. Remember, websites are the corner stone to collecting emails, and selling product. Every small business should have one, why, a place to send people to explore who you are. I am trying to make these exciting yet simple to navigate. I have three directly related to my book sales, Emergence Publishing Group, Business Venture Center and this one, Judy Haar. I write in two genre’s, non-fiction and medical thrillers. I’ve been reading that I should use two author names, I have stuck with one. What opinion do you have? Each website has my ebooks and books on them. They are all published on Amazon right now. I am thinking of expanding my reach, there are others such as Smashwords and Lulu. But I have used these before and find that Smashwords did not give me the coverage that I wanted although they do publish on Apple. I think I may try again. Amazon is definitely the largest platform but you must understand how to work in Amazon because there are thousands of people. I will be going through the process to maximize. Once I get a good group of emails, I may choose to sell on my website through a PDF, another option. Chime in.

New eBook on Color for Small Business

Colour Me 1-200x300I am  excited about publishing a new eBook on how to use color for small business. I mentor a lot of small businesses and  see frequent color mistakes. Remember that color is the first thing that people see, in three seconds, and is a lasting impression. It is so important to get this right. Color is about emotion and emotion drives business.

There are specific colors for each type of business as well. If you choose a color that is outside of the typical one used for that category, your small business may loose some of its clients. Colors are emotions, behavioral, intelligent, learned and cultural. This series will help you, the small business owner, pick the right ones.

The first eBook is on color theory. A guide on how to start to pick the right combinations and why some colors go better together than others. The second eBook is the meat of the subject. Many colors are defined and emotions attributed to them. Also we look at different businesses that might use combinations learned in eBook 1 and how to apply them to your business in eBook 2. Come and join our train to driving business to your door.
