CLIENT STORY: BUSINESS PUBLISHING
Ghostwriting Thought Leadership and Industry-Leading Expertise into an Easy-to-Understand Business Book
By their nature, business leaders are busy – leading businesses. They don’t have months to sit and write down their wealth of knowledge and expertise. Even if they have the specialist experience to structure a manuscript, getting too close to the subject material can prove more than a distraction. My job was to step in and surmount these challenges, crafting raw knowledge and content into a book that delivers practical how-to advice and wisdom for eMarketing newcomers.
An online business publisher, offering a wide range of leading business expertise from top business experts and thought-leaders in the form of books, articles, videos and direct advice. The author: Vinny Lingham, founder of Yola, IncuBeta, Synthasite and Clicks2Customers, a highly respected Pay-Per-Click (PPC) marketing company (reportedly driving more online traffic than any other agency in the USA).
To create “a fast guide to start implementing powerful eMarketing strategies in the most efficient way”, from a world-renowned Internet entrepreneur – and to do so in less than 30,000 words. The book needed to convey concisely the very broad and complex subject of eMarketing, while providing a way for beginners to implement the various tactics in their businesses right away
To take raw footage of on-camera interviews and transform it into a story structure that would meet the project objectives. I then added a little background research to add clarifying facts and translated what the author had told me into a form that both met the brief and retained his unique voice.
A book that takes the reader on a journey to understand the fundamental pillars of eMarketing, told in simple terms with key take-outs along the way that show how to fit the various components together in a real-world context. I also repurposed the main sections of the book down to a concise 3,000-word article for download and media distribution.
