Here are some typical questions I get asked, and the answers for your information:
Q: What are your office and email contact hours?
A: Mondays are “by appointment only,” and Tuesday through Friday 8:30am – 4pm PST. Due to the high volume of calls that I receive, it’s quite possible you will have to leave a voice message. Keep in mind, I respond to all client phone calls within 24 hours.
Emails sent to the address above usually receive the fastest response time. I take all weekends and holidays off.
Q: I would like you to help me (my company) with a marketing or copywriting project. How do I hire you?
A: Let’s start by making sure we’re a fit with each other’s business. Contact me using the telephone number or email address above, and let’s set aside some time (about 15 – 30 minutes) to examine your project or business to see how I might be able to help.
Please note that in the instances when I do accept new clients, it is not done on a contingency basis. No “you do the work and if we make money we’ll pay you” type of deals.
When I do Joint Ventures and connect business owners to resources they need … that is done under very different (paid) circumstances.
Q: I have written a book recently, and would like to know if you’ll review my book (via your blog, Amazon, or via other platforms).
A: (UPDATED 01/27/2017) I continue to receive quite a few book review requests from various authors.
I no longer take unsolicited book review requests except through specific channels. Thank you for considering me though.
Q: I would like to do a Joint Venture with you or would like you to be an affiliate and promote my product.
A: Affiliate requests are not being accepted at this time. This especially includes “invitations” to join MLM programs or similar business opportunities.
Q: I would like to exchange website links with you (e.g. put my link on your site, and I’ll put your link on mine).
A: Currently link exchange requests are not being accepted (and honestly unless I initiate one, probably never will).
Q: I would like you to speak at my conference or event Joseph. What do I do?
A: I would love to consider your paid speaking request. Please submit your request to me personally via email (use the contact form above) and you will receive a response within 24 hours.
Q: I would like you to consult with my company on-site or over the phone. How do I schedule this?
A: I can connect via Skype, email, or the phone number below to schedule about 15 minutes so we can discover what exactly your needs are and quote my fee for a paid engagement.
