San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Crescendo Publishing, a boutique publishing house for entrepreneur authors, and producer of several bestselling books, today announced The Artful Marketer: A Fundamental Business Guide for Creative Entrepreneurs, from Dr. Minette Riordan-- creator of a 6 figure multi-media publishing company.
The Artful Marketer achieved Amazon Bestseller status and was specifically written to help creative women entrepreneurs attract more cash and clients. You can purchase your copy at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S46SDGU.
"Current statistics show that there are close to 10 million women-owned businesses, but on average, women-owned businesses don’t have a high rate of success. Did you know that of those 10 million businesses, only 6 percent will ever reach the six-figure mark?" says Riordan.
She adds: "Even sadder, only 2 percent of women-owned businesses ever reach the seven-figure mark. In fact, over 50 percent of women never exceed $25,000 dollars a year in revenue. It doesn’t have to be that way.”
In The Artful Marketer, Riordan shows how creative entrepreneurs can turn these statistics upside down and easily break through to 6-figures or more. The book shares the following with its readers:
- Specific ideas for using mindfulness, art and journaling.
- Practical checklists and templates that make growing a business creative, fun and effective.
- How to create a one-page visual business plan and a colorful, intuitive marketing plan that are easy to implement, fun to create and specifically designed to grow a creative business.
"My mission is to help creative women entrepreneurs build profitable businesses that create the freedom, flexibility, and financial independence they dream of," says Riordan.
