The story behind this book:
This book is STILL at the top of the charts for all Marketing books in the world thanks to your support!
The background on this book: The publisher is the “For Dummies” publisher – Wiley and Sons – and they asked me in late 2012 to write a book about how to START or GROW a business (or spread and idea, a cause, an organization etc.) using free and virtually free marketing ideas centering on Internet based strategies.
After a year of hard work this book was the result.
What made me qualified to write this?
From the perspective of the publisher I’d achieved something that many others would like to accomplish. I’d grown multiple successful and creative online businesses…and had done it WITHOUT ever needing to invest a wad of cash. In the rare instances where I did spend any money it was either on inventory that would quickly sell for very nice profits, or it was nominal expenses like $5 for a video, or $30 to have a long audio transcribed into writing etc.
I’ve been a ravenous consumer of effective and “Free Marketing” concepts for over 25 years.
From here forward I’m considering the self appointed title of: “World’s Foremost Expert on Free Marketing Ideas”. You like it? ;0)
Seriously though – the book is CRAMMED with my best ideas and the first few dozen reviews are all RAVING. It’s so stuffed with great ideas that they asked me to shorten it but I refused. Since they initially asked if I had 100 ideas to fill such a book and I agreed…I decided to deliver those 100+ ideas on MY terms.
The final product is the best ideas from my nearly decade of success online. It’s not a cover to cover type of book though. Whether you have five minutes or six hours to spend with this book I hope you’ll walk away inspired (that was my goal).
100% of the author proceeds from book sales go to “Hope Village” – a ministry that teaches financial independence to budding inner-city entrepreneurs.
I can sniff out winning ideas like a bomb sniffing dog on caffeine. It’s a gift and a curse, but I tried to capture that way of thinking and put it all into a single book.

Finally, here’s my invitation to you to help spread the word about this book. I also explain where the proceeds are going (I’m not keeping them). You’ll also see a video of my wife, kids and I seeing the book for the first time ever just a few days before it hit store shelves – it was a fun family moment!

In our first week using the ideas in Free Marketing, we posted some astounding numbers (for us, anyway). We set a record for monthly visits to our content site in only seven days and reached more than 6,000 people through social media and our email newsletter.
While we’re still ramping up, this quick start is proof enough that the techniques in Free Marketing really work. Here’s what we did last week:
1. Published daily posts at http://livingtodayforward.com
2. Shared posts via social media and used Facebook’s promote feature
3. Emailed our first weekly newsletter to our contacts thanks to a gmail export
In the next two months, we’ll keep doing with daily posts and weekly newsletter and post 16 videos to YouTube and Vimeo, publish two Kindle books, and introduce our re-designed web application. Based on the last week, I have no doubt that this combination will produce outstanding results as we move forward.
Thanks for writing such a useful and timely book!
