Marketing is so important

Anyone who knows marketing in our industry understands the impact of aligning yourself with a guru. I am looking for speakers to share their own healthy living ideas and teachings in our newest book project, Health: Mind Body Soul featuring John Gray, Ph.D, Earl Mindell, R.Ph, Ph.D and Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D.

The book will contain principles and topics applying to everyday lives and careers. Our authors find it easier for their books to be reviewed. Opportunities for media coverage are also greatly increased. Imagine your ideas and your story appearing in newspapers and magazines! Imagine yourself on talk radio! You gain maximum exposure, reinforce your credentials, and build credibility.  It also represents real value for your audience. Your investment in this project is your inventory of books.

 Reignite your passion, energy and focus today.  An eBook is included with all packages, use this to market or sell on your Web site, giving you additional profit!

We are interested in working with co-authors who can see beyond the pages of the book, and recognize the importance of marketing. I am available to discuss packages, your topic and prime chapter placement. 

Thanks!

Jeanne Baach, Senior Marketing Director
