QUICK CASE STUDY #1: HOW I CAN HELP YOU TO GET THAT BOOK PUBLISHED!: Gabby Bernstein came to me with a problem. She wanted to be an inspirational book author – but after a few years of pitching a book proposal titled “Falling In Love With Your Future,” she still hadn’t gotten a publishing deal. At the time I had a 5 mornings a week Sirius radio show called “Be Happy Dammit.” I was about to create a twice-monthly 3 minute-segment called “Add More Ing To Your Life” – inspired by a paragraph in my Bounce Back Book. But I had so much I was working on, I offered Gabby the opportunity to do these short segments. After a few, I suggested she create a book with this title. I thought that perhaps the reason her agent had not sold “Falling In Love With Your Future” was because her title was a bit “quiet and tame” for the younger hip generation she was seeking to reach. Plus her book idea I felt was a bit too general -not specific enough to be summed up quickly in an elevator pitch. I believed that this fun and feisty title of “Add More Ing To Your Life” – along with this book’s more specifically narrow-focused message – would appeal more to her audience – and thereby to publishers. I helped Gabby write the book proposal (and re-re-write it.) After it was done, her agent still had trouble selling “Add More Ing To Your Life.” One night I wound up meeting the president of Berlitz publishing over french fries while at a local restaurant with my friend Kathlin Argiro. He invited me to pitch book ideas to a new book division he was starting: QNY. I wound up selling him “Prince Harming Syndrome.” While at a meeting with editors, I asked what other types of books they were looking for. They told me “self help for the younger generation.” I called up Gabby and said, “I think I finally found you your publisher.” I set up a meeting – insisting to the editor that she meet Gabby in person – instead of having Gabby simply send a proposal through her agent. I knew an in-person meeting would better help Gabby make an impact. Gabby went in – and pitched “Falling In Love With Your Future.” The editor passed. I told Gabby to do something a bit unconventional. Rather than wait too long to pitch again, I told her to call up the editor as soon as possible to tell her about “Add More Ing To Your Life” – while Gabby was still fresh in the editor’s mind. She did. A month later, Gabby had finally sold her first book: “Add More Ing To Your Life.” Gabby has since written about my helping her to get her first book sold – calling it a “turning point” in her career – and – referring to it as a “miracle” of sorts – because this happened in 2009 – which she describes as “a time the recession had us in a headlock” “fear and uncertainty were at an all time high” and “nearly every industry was negatively affected.”

QUICK CASE STUDY #2- HOW I CAN HELP YOU TO CREATE A MORE POWERFUL BRAND AND MORE VIRAL SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE: Andrew Hale came to me with a problem. His website for his law firm was so jampacked with info, it didn’t clearly inform what his law firm did – which was specialize in defending police officers in some of the biggest police misconduct cases in the country. I re-designed and re-wrote his site – so this “brand differentiator” was powerfully clear. Plus I made sure it appealed to his target audience (the police) by making his site an appealing “royal police blue” and by creating a wildly popular section called “Hug A Cop.” I also created an organization he now runs – called “Whole Truth Project” – which serves in direct opposition to “The Innocence Project.” – an organization who Andy was often defending his police clients against in court. Social-media-wise, I created a wildly popular Facebook fanpage for Andy – which has quickly reached 25,000 passionate fans. I write and design posters for him weekly, which regularly get shared 1,000 to 10,000 times per poster. Plus Facebook analytics reports Andy’s FB page often reaches 750,000 to 1,500,000 people a week – due to the viral nature of my posters. Added bonus: The success of Andy’s page has not only improved his ability to attract new clients far more easily, it’s also garnered him a spot on a TV show: Crime Stoppers.
