In Today’s Online World, Online Visibility and Credibility Are Crucial to Your Success.–In fact, your business is in danger of losing its customers to other businesses that know how to market more effectively online than you do. If someone wants to buy your books, or your products or use your services, they are going to check you out online and see what comes up in the search engines, in reviews, and on social media. 

Use LinkedIn and Your Website for Marketing–You better make sure your LinkedIn profile is terrific, your website is usable and visible on tablets and smartphones as well as desktop and laptop computers. And the reviews about you, your business, your services, your books, need to be really good.

"Joan Holman provided invaluable help with my book 'Dear Success Seeker.'"

Joan Holman Acclaimed as One of America's Top Online Marketing Gurus

My name leads the list of the country's top online marketing experts featured in the book Online Marketing Heroes: Interviews with 25 Successful Online Marketing Gurusalong with VPs of Yahoo!, Google and other industry leaders. (published by the John Wiley & Sons, a world-respected publishing company whose brands include Dummies, Frommers, Cliff Notes and J.K. Lasser.)

Joan Holman's Online Marketing Efforts Have Generated Millions of Dollars of Revenue for Her Clients.–As one of the first people in the world to do online marketing, in 1995 I secured my own domain name and started developing websites. Since that time, I have worked with numerous business owners and leaders, including authors,  to help them to create an online presence and use the Internet to achieve their goals, and I have educated thousands of people about effective online marketing through numerous speaking engagements and media interviews.

DID YOU KNOW? An effective website that is properly designed for usability, for search engine optimization and for marketing purposes can more than double the conversion rates and lead generation. 

Effective Ways to Use the Internet –Many businesses do not know how to develop and implement effective online marketing strategies and tactics.  Knowing how to create marketing-optimized and search-engine optimized websites, blogs, social media, e-mail and utilize other online resources can jump start your sales and build your business.

Get More Visible Online–To increase your opportunities and your sales, you should be highly visible online in the search engines and in social media. If you are invisible, no one will find you. Unexpected and profitable opportunities can come from online connections and these connections can even change the direction of your life and your business and make the difference between success and failure.

"Ninety percent of web users have used search to find out about a product or service." 

-- Pew Internet & American Life Project

You must find out what your customers really want, not what you think they want. 

Customers do not always buy what they need; they buy what they want. 

You must manage your online reputation because today customers are in control and they can make or break your reputation and your business. Ninety two percent of U.S. internet users have referred to online customer reviews to help them make a purchase decision. I can help you manage your online reputation and protect your business. (Read the article from Inc. Magazine "You've Been Yelped")

If someone is going to buy your products or services, they must trust you. 

How effective is your website and online presence in general in  creating enough trust to make someone willing to do business with you?" 

I work with an international clientele, and most of my work is on a retainer or project basis, however, I am also available on a limited basis for some individual consultations.

"After completing my travel memoir Drawn by a Star, and deciding I needed help to market it because the proceeds of the book are going to two charities in Peru, I surfed the net and almost immediately found Joan Holman’s website. I can’t describe the excitement I felt as I read about her credentials. Joan is an artist, a writer, a psychologist, has worked in the film industry...and the list grew more and more interesting. As an artist, a scriptwriter and as yet unpublished author myself, I felt I’d struck gold. But, after an initial couple of emails I wondered if I was going to be right out of my depth. Here was a highly professional person so successful and so accomplished, was she going think marketing my work a waste of her time? On the contrary, what has transpired has been helpful guidance beyond anything I could ever have imagined. Joan is a sensitive artist, a highly gifted writer and communicator, plus she is a former teacher of psychology. She has treated my manuscript with huge respect and interest, made me feel a real writer and made me feel a friend. And possibly the most helpful aspect of all my work with her to date has been her amazing ability to ask the deepest of questions. These questions have clarifed the bigger picture of what I’m trying to express in my book and to solve in my life, because the two are indisputably intertwined. This is where she put on her psychologist’s hat. I felt I was in the presence of a great mentor, somebody whose insights and awareness left me unable to walk away from her questions. In her questioning, I’ve been challenged to rewrite the final section of my book, and in doing so, have exorcised a secret that has haunted me for 36 years. The release from this is priceless. Whatever happens to the marketing of my book and its future, my own future is now brighter and lighter and sparkles thanks to the expertise, guidance and encouragement of this extraordinary person who so generously is willing to go the extra mile with her clients. Thank you Joan, you are quite simply, pure gold."– Meg Robinson
