When Tara Swiger emailed me last September saying that she was working on a book, I got so excited! Her guest posts here at Handmade Success have been so chock full of information and so knock your socks off insightful that just the idea of her trying to help you market yourself with a book filled me with anticipation!
Market Yourself by Tara Swiger does not disappoint. Tara Swiger knows marketing and after you read this book (heck, after reading the first chapter!) you will believe that Tara Swiger knows you.
You will get excited just reading the Table of Contents! Your interest will be piqued to see how your business will grow as you proceed through the book. Each chapter has a carefully crafted focus along with (AMAZING!) worksheets to help you bring new ideas into fruition.
Right in Chapter 1 she breaks down marketing in a way that will have you thinking differently.
You will be so excited to write your next blog post halfway through Chapter 2!
When Tara discusses finding your Right People in Chapter 3 you will begin to feel more focused, certain and secure about where you are taking your business.
In Chapter 4 she talks from a buyers perspective in a way that will have you nodding your head in agreement and realizing that this point of view will totally help you as a seller.
You will begin to navigate social media from a more authentic, natural, and productive place than ever before after reading Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 will have you expressing yourself that way offline too.
You are already going to feel pumped up by Chapter 7 and it is going to blow you away!
Now, I could go on and on about each chapter but what I really want you to know is this:
Market Yourself takes your passion for making to the next level by teaching you step by step how to get your product into your buyer’s hands. Tara encourages and inspires but ultimately challenges you to create the growth you are looking for in your business. You will be amazed and intrigued by what you begin to learn about yourself as well as your brand. You will feel like you are in one-on-one coaching sessions with Tara. She communicates like she knows you, your product and what you need to succeed.
Are you so ready to go get this book?! Cooperative Press is officially launching it today and it is being offered in both print and digital forms. You can go here to buy a copy and you can go here to join in on all of the fun things Tara has planned surrounding the launch! She may even be in your neck of the woods soon too!
