Description

Today on The DooDoo Diva's Smells Like Money Podcast, Mary Shafer shares her views on future-proofing your business through embracing technology. Every time a technology advances, it pushes some skills to either upgrade or disposes of. When that happens, are you a harness maker or a leatherworker? Mary explains what the yellow pages taught us, how the pandemic impacted the world's approach to marketing, and why technology is not something you should be afraid of.


This episode covers:


· Don't tie into something that evolves and changes


· Am I a harness maker or leatherworker?


· COVID set marketing ahead by about 25 years


· A VA's value is more significant than its cost


· Why you shouldn't be intimidated by technology


About Mary Shafer:


Mary has been a writer all her life and grew up learning marketing and copywriting business in her dad's ad agency. As a commercial copywriter, she learned what works and what doesn't in marketing, and becoming a consultant was a natural outgrowth of that work. She chose to work with small and micro-businesses because that's what she understands best.


Word Forge Books, Mary's publishing division, evolved from her author and marketing experience. Technological innovations have created exciting synergies between marketing and publishing. Her clients have often expressed interest in writing their own books or other publications, so she offers services such as ghostwriting, editing, and custom publishing to help get their messages out in a format that complements their other channels.


Mary's career in the book publishing industry began in 1990. She has written three published books and contributed to two published anthologies. She consults with self-pubbed authors and indie publishers on how to navigate the modern publishing industry as The Indie Navigator (indienavigator.com).


Her publishing colleagues often need help with marketing, so she consults with them from the sympathetic standpoint of another publisher and author who understands the unique pressures they face in this industry, currently undergoing an incredible upheaval. Consulting with authors and indie publishers is the fastest-growing segment of her business, which often involves public speaking at conferences, in classrooms, and in libraries.
