I did a lot of cleaning this week. I am slowly reaching out to the 477 authors who responded but didn’t finish a book list. Usually that is because the timing wasn’t right, they got busy, or they forgot. And, I am putting together a better system to do follow-ups.
On Monday I started training Joy, who is helping me with data entry on books and author profiles. This will take a huge swath of work off my plate and she is doing great. She should be fully up to speed in a week or two.
I am playing with the idea of hiring someone to help me with: the editing process with authors, author follow-ups, and a few other items. I need to clear more of my time for marketing as I work to ramp up traffic. I am going to sit down and look at that in a few weeks.
