Book Review: Blogging for Smarties by Yvonne Wu

3 Jan





The Internet is often the first place that people turn to for information about anything and anyone. Company addresses, information about a person and reviews about a company are a click away. Potential visitors rely on the Internet to learn about specials, book releases, events, and information. Your website is your storefront and it enables you to reach a global market. Having a website that supplies this information is a necessary component of running a business.

As an author and speaker, the Internet becomes a business channel to network, advertise your products and services, and build a following on a global level. Learn how to create your first blog, effectively market your blog and create passive income opportunities in our new ebook, “Blogging for Smarties Blogging for Authors and Speakers,” which will walk you through the steps of building an extremely effective website.

My Review

I chose to read this e-book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Blogging for Smarties is a quick read that is packed with information. Most of the information is for someone who hasn’t set up a website yet. It explains how to set up a blog through Word Press which is the number one site for blogs and is user-friendly. It also contains valuable information and things most bloggers, new or not, are interested in, such as attracting readers and making money with your blog.

There a couple sections on podcasting, which is becoming more and more popular. It is an effective tool for speakers, authors, and business owners if it’s done correctly. I have thought about podcasting but I haven’t taken that step and I don’t know if I ever will, but if I do, I will have this book on hand to help me.

I definitely recommend Blogging for Smarties for especially new bloggers but seasoned bloggers may find a thing or two that they hadn’t learned yet.
