where contributors are required to purchase space to be included. Personally, I wouldn't have participated if were any other way.
Lewiston, Idaho (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Hot on the heels of the December Entrepreneur magazine "2009 Trend" issue focusing on lucrative opportunities in a down economy, The International Association of Web Entrepreneurs released a book of similar topic. "The Official AWE Guide 2009 -- Emerging Trends Every Entrepreneur Must Know" features insight from 17 experts. Two of the contributing authors, Lisa Manyon and Susan Daffron, reside in Idaho. Given the small population of Idaho, it's interesting that 10% of the featured experts are Idaho citizens and 94% of experts run woman-owned businesses.
One of the featured experts is Lisa Manyon, http://www.LisaManyon.com, of Write On ~ Creative Writing Services, LLC. in Lewiston, Idaho. She is the AWE Copywriting Expert and authored a chapter entitled "How the Ever Changing Landscape of Internet Marketing Affects Your Message and Why You Must Adapt."
"The Official AWE Guide 2009 -- Emerging Trends Every Entrepreneur Must Know" highlights trends to build and grow your online business. Experts were selected based on real-world knowledge and excellence in their respective fields. The top three reoccurring trends for 2009 are developing relations, building and running a "conscious" business and integrating new technologies.
Sheri McConnell, President and CEO of The International Association of Web Entrepreneurs shares, "When I asked each of the experts to write a chapter on upcoming trends in their area of expertise, it was exciting to see how many similarities appeared in their predictions, even when the industries were not related at all."
Lisa Manyon says, "This is a quality compilation of insight from talented, credible people. It isn't a "buy your own credibility book" where contributors are required to purchase space to be included. Personally, I wouldn't have participated if were any other way."
AWE Web Development Expert Susan Daffron of Logical Expressions, Inc. adds, "Although paying to be included in anthologies is becoming a common publishing trend, it's really just a form of subsidy publishing, and not in keeping with the standards of the AWE. I helped compile the book, and it was great to see how enthusiastic everyone was about the project. The result is a book packed with helpful insights for online entrepreneurs.
"The Official AWE Guide 2009 -- Emerging Trends Every Entrepreneur Must Know" is now available at the International Association of Web Entrepreneurs Web site at http://www.profcs.com/app/?Clk=1938732 The book is included with membership to the International Association of Web Entrepreneurs or can be purchased separately for $24.
