Why did you write this book?

After working with hundreds of small business owners who were ripped off by big agencies, or had very little money to hire an outside service, I felt that there was a significant need for this book. I wanted to provide the basic information necessary to use the “power of the press” and search engine optimization to build buzz… without spending a lot of money.

Now, entrepreneurs can follow the simple steps in “Simple Publicity” to get publicity and increase sales on their own.

In addition, on my site at, and my blog at, I provide insider tips and valuable information to help small business owners boost sales, awareness and credibility via search engine optimization, social media and public relations activities. Every week, I offer new information to help entrepreneurs pursue their business goals and be successful.

Why Spend The Time and Effort on PR and SEO?

Small business owners need to let the media and potential customers know about their new products and services. And in addition to building buzz, by having your name mentioned in a media venue that your target audience pays attention to, you are getting third-party credibility you simply cannot get in any other way.

These media mentions can build a significant amount of buzz which results in more site visitors and sales. Now, getting publicity does take time and effort, but the great part of this is that you can start getting publicity without spending any money. It’s a very cost-effective way to bring in new sales, especially if you are launching a new business with a tight budget.

And entrepreneurs should note that traditional PR activities are still in place… You still get your best publicity by pitching targeted story ideas to specific media-members. However, it’s important to take advantage of search engine optimization, or SEO, at the same time.

With public relations, you use press releases, articles, blogs, social media, newsletters, eReports, e-mails, white papers, and other copy to communicate with customers and the press. Well, since you are already creating this content, it’s important to optimize it for the search engines too.

And this just means that you add the appropriate amount of popular keywords (the words your customers are searching for online) to your content and online coding. This way, when potential customers and media members are looking for your products and services, they can find you on the Internet easily.

After all, if you aren’t optimizing your content for the search engines, and your competitors are, you are probably losing out on some great media attention and new sales.
