How to Increase Book Sales, Get More Speaking Gigs and/or Attract More Coaching Clients with your Website

… Without Having to Get a Web Design Degree or Learn How to Code

… Even If You’re Terrible at Web Stuff, Don’t Have a Lot of Time and Just Want to Hand this Tech Stuff Over to a Virtual Assistant

This is your business.

This is your website.

You need to understand what makes it effective so that you know that your web designer and virtual assistant are doing a good job.

But you don’t need to know the design theory behind it. You don’t need to know the coding that makes it happen. You don’t need to spend a lot of time learning any of that stuff … you just need to know what to do and the basics of how to do it so that you can hand this off to people who love all the technical stuff.

That’s why I wrote Home Sweet Home Page, to give you the basics you need to know in simple, accessible, and easy-to-implement language that you can understand. The first edition helped many authors, speakers, and coaches make their websites more effective. You can read what some of them had to say below. This second edition updates the content from the original book and adds in additional information you need to know in the 2020s.

What People Said About the First Edition of Home Sweet Home Page

“Carma’s book on creating Web sites in the era of Web 2.0 is the simplest, most readable, and best in a highly cluttered market.”
Elatia Harris

Founder, Tessa’s Table 2050

“Even though she is an accomplished website and graphic design professional AND Internet marketer, Carma speaks in plain English and keeps things simple. And she still includes pretty much everything I would want you to know about building an effective online presence—and how to do it right from the start!”
Linda Dessau

Founder, You Talk, I’ll Write

“The power of the book is how Carma Spence packs so much punch into a small volume. The book spends little time on frills and is devoted entirely to identifying the problems found with business and professional home pages, and to creating their solutions. … The book can be read in one sitting, as is helpful for a busy businessperson. The valuable site mistake self-assessment can be completed, and the solutions presented in the book can be put into action immediately.”

5 Powerful Ways Your Business Can Change (for the better)

Your royalties increase as if by magic...

Causing your accountant to get suspicious. Why? Because 93% of business purchase decisions start with an online search.

New email subscribers pour in regularly and consistently...

Leading to increased sales of your products and services. Why? Because email has 6x higher click-through rates than tweets, and email is 40 times more effective at acquiring new customers than Facebook or Twitter.

You receive emails from event organizers who want to book you for their event...

So that your calendar fills up and you have to turn some away. Why? Because event organizers 1) are likely to find your website through search, and 2) because your website lends you authority, they are more likely to want you to speak at their event.

Your calendar fills up with new coaching client inquiry sessions

creating a waiting list of those who want you to coach them. Why? Again — more of your ideal prospects find your site, are wowed by your expertise and click the “schedule a call” button without thinking about it!

Organic traffic to your website increases

so that you land more sales, bookings, and clients. Why? Because when your copy is properly optimized for search engines, and your ideal target market, the right people are more likely to find you and stay on your website long enough to buy something or schedule a call to speak with you, or at least sign up for your email list.

All of the materials have helped me move forward with my own goals for website development and most of all, writing. I am a prolific writer. I’m Irish, so blarney is in my DNA, and language rolls off my tongue. My problem has been one of organization of ideas and your ebook has been especially helpful. I’m really looking forward to receiving my book and hearing you again on the invitation-only group class.”
