Who doesn't love a free book?

My friend, +Laurie Varga wrote her first book last year and it's great! I have read it and I love it.

Getting book reviews can be an absolute drag

Some of them come easily from acquaintances and loved ones who feel obligated to help out but after the initial excitement everything takes a nose dive.

Of course, being too busy to do anything about it doesn't help marketing matters. You get out of it what you put into it and lately, I've been giving Like a Bird no love so any form of action has been non-existant. I've been working to change that.

Recently I had a strange and awful experience with someone I hired to help me market the book. Thankfully, I got a little help from my friends, especially +Lany Sullivan who introduced me to +Shawn Manaher the founder of a professional resource to help acquire legit book reviews. Anyone who wants to review Like a Bird can get it for FREE by signing up with their email address. Easy peasy.

I can't say it's a magic pill or anything (yet) because I just uploaded my book today but I'll keep you posted on the results.

If you aren't catching these weekly, that's totally ok. These videos go out EVERY Tuesday, so watch at your convenience.

What I love about these videos is that they are small, bite sized videos that you can watch over and over until you "get it". For someone like me who does not understand GA well, it's great to be able to watch these often as refreshers.

UTM codes to improve your Marketing? Oh yes!

+David Kutcher has done it again. He brings us solid value, tons of insight and more freebies in this week's video about UTM codes.

UTM codes have been around FOREVER, but many small business and bloggers either don't know about them or never use them because they were just to hard to figure out.

In this video, David not only explains what UTM is, how to use them and the power behind them to monitor where your traffic is coming from, but also to figure out what links and campaigns are actually generating revenue!
