You already know that writing real stuff can be a powerful business-building strategy. Real, useful stuff, not marketing copy. Stuff like articles, blog posts, tip sheets, ebooks. Stuff that helps people, inspires them, makes them think, or makes them laugh. You’ve seen bloggers, columnists, article writers, ebook publishers, and others use their writing as a springboard to business success. How do they do that? Could YOU do that? The answer is yes!
What you need is a very specific bag of tricks. You must learn how to use quality writing as a business-building tool, how to write your stuff so that your desired audience will want what your business offers, and how to put those elements together into a business-building plan. That’s exactly what I’m going to teach you in the Business Building Writer program. If you’ve been wondering, considering, or planning how you could use writing as a path to building a thriving business, this webinar series is for you.
Since 1992, I’ve built a thriving business with writing as one of my key marketing and promotion strategies. I’ve written hundreds of blog posts and newsletter articles, several regular columns, multiple magazine articles, numerous ebooks and special reports, and four full-length books, one of which is a long-time business bestseller. Now I’d like to share my writing and business-building secrets with you.
Your Business Building Writer Program was just what I needed right now! You shared your wealth of knowledge freely, and inspired and motivated me to get back in action with my own business writing. The lessons built on one another, and there was so much rich content and feedback to draw from… I loved all your inspiration, and how do-able you made things! Your feedback was wonderful. Things shared in Dropbox — invaluable! Oh, and all the great resources you shared…

- I’m not going to teach you how to write marketing copy. I’ll teach you how to write and publish real stuff — informational, inspirational, or entertaining material that your ideal clients will want to read.
- This isn’t a program on “content marketing.” It’s about putting your personal experience, ideas, and creativity into words, and making those words available to your desired audience.
- You won’t have to hire a staff or become a full-time marketer to use what I teach you. Every tactic and tool I share will be tailored for solopreneurs and microbusiness owners.
- This isn’t one of those programs where you’ll get generic advice and have to figure out on your own how to apply it. You’ll get personal feedback and direction from me, based on my years of experience working with professionals like you.
- Five simple steps to write a powerful, high-quality, business-building piece (you’ll use them throughout the program)
- Tools, and techniques to make you a better — and faster — writer
- How to make maximum use of social media to promote your writing, even if you don’t have a big following (yet)
- Overcoming anxiety about people “reading your stuff”
- Avoiding business-killing mistakes that you don’t want to make with your writing
- How to get past the technical and logistical roadblocks that hold you back
This program provides really helpful, practical information with regard to writing with a focus on building one’s business. It provides the opportunity for immediate practice of what was learned and invaluable editorial feedback. It’s taken my productivity and writing to a whole new level.
