Don’t Know Where To Start Your Online Marketing, Business or Brand?

There is so much that goes into crafting your communications and making sure it’s received correctly.
Fortunately the time is just right for you to jump online and it’s never been easier to start getting your voice and message heard through highly distributed channels, like iTunes, Amazon publishing and more.

I was making a Free Online Marketing Basics Training For Beginners video training series and had just about finished recording all the videos when it occurred to me to share a summary or outline of the content as a post.
So if you can’t watch the videos (which offer some extra information and bonus training), you can at least have the core idea and run with it. So here they are.
