WHO ARE BRAD AND DEBRA SCHEPP?
Deb's book Kick Ass Social Commerce for E-preneurs: It’s Not About Likes--It’s About Sales is getting great reviews on Amazon. Entrepreneurs tell us they find the book readable and full of great tips. That's just what we hoped we hear. We are also continuing to write for the Used Truck Association and the Auctiva e-Commerce website. Brad's been doing more consulting as well, for companies such as GLG.
How can we work together?
Deb's new book, Kick Ass Social Commerce for E-preneurs: It’s Not About Likes--It’s About Sales, has been published! The book's message is that: It's not About Likes, It's About Sales! Co-author John Lawson is doing a great job promoting the book via social media. This is a book everyone connected with is very proud of. We know it will help a lot of people. Packed with info, and fun (NOT boring) to read.
Announcing Your Story Told
Everybody has at least one book in them, one story to share with the world. A cliche? Maybe, but you know it's true. So it's exciting to announce that Deb and I are now helping people write their first books through our new business, Your Story Told: From Ideas to Finished Books.
We love doing this because we can help people with every step of the process--from developing their ideas to selling their finished books. So if you have a story to tell, or maybe you just want a book "out there" to boost your own business, give us a shout and hear us out (!), about how we can work together. Just click on our email link in the box above this one.
McGraw-Hill has just published one of the books we've worked on as consultants, Wholesale 101: A Guide to Product Sourcing for Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners. And Deb's in the final stages of the book she's co-authoring with John Lawson, Kick Ass Social Commerce for E-Preneurs. In addition to watching Deb work hard, Brad's enjoying working as a literary agent. We also write web newsletters these days, including Industry Watch, the Used Truck Association's newsletter.
In addition to his editorial work, Brad is now working as a Literary Agent for Waterside Productions. He's working with authors of nonfiction works; especially in the areas of social media, social commerce, e-commerce, business and investing, general computer books, and Popular Culture.
The 2nd edition of How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ is now available! Completely revised and expanded, the new edition has a chapter on Google+, and also a new chapter for students and recent grads. Deb and I poured our hearts and souls into this one because we feel helping someone find that next new job is one of the most most important things you can do. We've all been there. Job hunting isn't fun. But with this book you can take a lot of the guesswork and pain out the process. It's a quick read, with many stories of people who have successfully used social media to land new work, whether full-time, or as a freelancer/independent contractor/consultant.
We just completed a great interview with FORBES.com for an article called Make Social Media Your Job-Finding Weapon. They even used our quotes to create an entertaining slide show. The link for it is below the next bit of text.
The new book promotion is going great guns. New interviews with Investor's Business Daily and CBS News. Links below!
After the winter that wasn't we're now enjoying spring. Can summer be far behind?
We're thrilled to say that the Wall Street Journal named How to Find a Job on LinkedIn among the Best Career Books for 2012.
For this edition we added a chapter on Google+, as well as a chapter just for students and other recent grads. We also added many more stories about people who found jobs through LinkedIn or other social networks. We checked every fact and incorporated all the great feedback we received from our readers.
Our hope is that it helps many, many people in these difficult times. Job hunting's still hard, but in some ways it's "easier." Or at least the Internet makes it appear to be. Our book really shows you how to use social networks efficiently and productively to uncover new work opportunities. Plus, it's fun to read and what job hunter couldn't use a bit of fun?
In their March 18th (2013) edition, PARADE Magazine published our article on making money on eBay. It appeared in print in PARADE's 20 million newspaper supplements. Now we don't get the same thrill as we once did from seeing our names in print but this was different. Brad used to read PARADE magazine as a kid. He couldn't have imagined that one day an article he wrote would be included there!
