Maria Peagler – an award-winning author, publisher, and course developer:

  • I began as the 10th employee of ExecuTrain, an Atlanta-based computer training company that grew to be the nation's largest of its kind
  • I traveled across the U.S. teaching Fortune 500 companies how to make their employees productive on PCs
  • I became Director of Courseware Development & focused on simplifying complex topics (remember mail merge?)
  • I presented papers at national conferences, wrote for national computer magazines, and led a team of technical writers in developing courses.
  • I've authored seven books on apps, one on quilting (random?) and won national awards for my work, including a Benjamin Franklin award for Best Book of 2010
  • Today I'm a small business owner just like you, and I understand how challenging today's economy is for entrepreneurs.

What to Look for in Social Media Training

Why Did I Start SocialMediaOnlineClasses.com?

In 2008 I invested $25,000 in a self-published book — then the Great Recession hit. I had no marketing budget but had to sell product (My husband is a residential home builder. Can you say panic?).

I hustled to propel my book from unknown to 2 years on Amazon’s Top Ten list for it’s category. And I’m going to do something no one does in publishing — share my numbers:

  • Published authors average 1,000 book sales
  • Self-published authors average 100 book sales (yes, really)
  • I sold 8,000 books (yes, 80 times what other self-published authors sold)
  • I made six-figures off my self-published book

I can’t guarantee those same successes for you. But if you’re willing to work hard and put in the time, learning from me will generate results.
