From our new look to even more great content here at I C Publishing to support authors and entrepreneurs on their journey; we hope you are as enthused about 2015 as we are!
First, our modern new look. Our top priority is always serving you. Through analyzing our stats from last year, in addition to doubling our traffic in 2014, we can see that many of you enjoy coming back to our site as a helpful resource. With that in mind, our new website makes it even easier to access and digest key content, share our posts via social media to help others, find specific info about our services, and connect with us directly whenever you need to.
As for the awesome new content we’re planning, our wonderful team of experts will be contributing extra to our bi-weekly blog posts this year giving you more insightful perspectives. Carly, our blog administrator and social media guru is up first, and Christina, the newest designer on our team will follow suit in February. Watch for their posts on The Power of Social Media and Personalizing Your Logo or Brand. Sarah will share her passion with some highly creative thoughts on writing and self-expression. Jenna will offer her expertise on The Value of Images and Visual Storytelling, and Gayle and Cheryl will join in the spring to talk about Telling Your Story to Help Others. And that’s just the beginning!
In addition to supporting our message here as always:
- I will be guest-writing on two other platforms featuring content from my two new e-books coming this year, Do You Have a Book in You? ~ Straight Talk to Take You from Concept to Reality, and The All Season Entrepreneur ~ More Straight Talk to Help You Succeed in Work and Life (here is one of the first posts, The January Entrepreneur).
- Watch for my podcast interview coming up later this month with Jeanette Aro of Kharisma Lifestyle, along with direct links to my new monthly posts mentioned above.
- You can follow my 365 Wisdom for Today Quotes here, and
- I’ll also continue posting articles on the professional LinkedIn platform for those of you who find it helpful to have easy-to-refer to resources there while you’re keeping in touch with your business network and colleagues. As an approved LinkedIn contributor, you can quickly find my posts here.
In closing, awesome new authors and titles continue to blossom and flourish here at I C Publishing. Our growth has been very exciting, doubling business from 2013 to 2014, and set to triple in 2015. Be sure to watch for our newest releases and upcoming author interviews as they share their processes and amazing journeys with courage, and then celebratory excitement. Whether you’re a reader or author, or both, I know you’ll love their stories and their work.
Come back soon to hear about these inspiring new projects: New Edition of the ever-popular book, The Simplicity Project by Jenn Pike, Communicating in a Character Culture (2nd in series) by Kathleen Redmond, All Out of Womb by Christina Hunter, A Mother’s Memoir ~ Living While Dying by Mary Louise Jarvis, Legacy of the Canadian Horse by Danaan, 7 Steps to Discovering You by Marie Ryckman, Christy Solves a Mystery in the Forest (1st in series) by Annabella Stoyke, and much more.
Last but not least, thank you for your ongoing feedback and engagement in all that we’re doing. We were especially thrilled at the level of participation in our Writing Blog Tour last year—the summer tour alone produced 458 page-views. To the many writers who contributed to the tour, thanks so much for the time and heart you put into your post—the value to our readers was tremendous, and we hope to you too. Our thinking caps are already on for our next one. Any ideas for tours or blog posts, please feel free to let us know.
Happy New Year!
Sheri & the I C Publishing Team
