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.
