Here’s where you come in should you choose to help with any or all of what I need your help with:
(click on any highlighted link to go directly there):
- First and Foremost, I need endorsements. If you don't have the time to do anything else, I would ask that you click the link above and below to send me your endorsement. If you feel you can comfortably write something that testifies to any kind of quality akin to me being a Considerate person or otherwise qualified to write the book, I need to have that to add street cred. If you do choose to write something, feel free to be as effuse as you are comfortable in doing. Go for it!
- My time with Apple will be a big selling credential that I will try to capitalize on. I’ve already begun with a LinkedIn article I published that has had nearly 4000 views and over 200 likes.
- I’ve come to realize that I’m only a mediocre designer. That’s okay. I don’t have to be great at it anymore. So I am open and hopin’ (sic) to getting some great feedback on the design of the three points of marketing contact and content:
- Facebook Page: Design, Colors, Layout, Follows, Page Likes, Links, etc.
- Ten2Consider Blog: Design, Colors, Layout, Follows, Likes, Links.
- Twitter Account Page: Design, Colors, Layout, Follows, Likes, Links.
It was recommended that I make use of my Coffee House Blog site since it’s going to be utilized for all sorts of writing. I will feature, have a separate page for, and categorize by Ten Seconds To Consider posts.
- Active Following, Shares, Likes, and Links of my posts, tweets, and articles however you can to build readership and audience. This is crucial to landing a good publisher these days. I am following what most of the authors and publishers are saying about establishing an “Author’s Platform”.
- Kickstarter Campaign Advice (coming soon!)
- I need to launch a Kickstarter campaign as soon as possible to fund me being able to take the next 3-5 months to finish and launch the first book. I will use the testimonials, the book chapter outline, and some nifty animated-type videos to present the campaign on Kickstarter. I'll let you know when I begin.
- Check out The Zen Habits Book project - Earned over $240,000 on a goal of about $44,000!
- Editing (coming soon!)
- This is where the most crucial and intimate help will come in. Editorial criticism and suggestions are needed ongoing and if you can hang in through this phase, those who choose to help with this will be the heroes for sure!
- If you'd like, you'll be able to make comments on any part of the book as well as collaborate with and view others' comments via an iCloud link to the document!
