E-Book Testimonials

"Thomas Clifford has made something useful here. This report will give you some really catchy, useful ideas.

It made me reconsider how I do what I do, so you might give it a look-see, too!" 

Chris Brogan, President, Human Business Works 

"Tom Clifford is by trade a filmmaker. For most of his life, he rarely wrote anything longer than a brief comment in the margin of a script. 

Now, though, he's producing tens of thousands of words a year, first as a Fast Company "Expert Blogger," and then as a writer for the Content Marketing Institute. 

How did Tom go from a non-writer to a prolific and much-read one? His eBook, '5 (Ridiculously Simple) Ways . . . , ' holds some of his secrets."

Mark Levy, Author of "Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content"

“Tom is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet—if you have the privilege to meet him. And he does sterling work as well. But don’t just take my word for it.

Read this free report and you’ll not just love its tone and content, but learn a lot as well.”

Sean D’Souza, Psychotactics.com

“Anyone who wants to improve their writing needs this e-book. A lot of ebooks are short because they just don’t have much substance to offer. They’re not worth your time (and so are many of the long ones, too, for that matter). Tom’s is short because he’s so good at giving you only what you need to know. 

‘5 (Ridiculously Simple) Ways to Write Faster, Better, Easier’ lives up to its promise by example as well as in the words themselves. Tom used the very same techniques he teaches you to write this book. 

And what’s in here is not just a rehash of the same tired ideas you find coming from people who have suddenly fancied themselves as writing gurus. There are tricks in here I never heard of (like the Writing Funnel) and some I had forgotten about and was glad to be reminded of (like Sporadic Writing).”

Tom's SpeedLink #14

Here's the last speedlink of the year. It has a little of "this and that" for just about everyone.

1. Wiring Yourself for Success
Chris Brogan has an awesome, simple model for creating "compass points" for the new year. Compass points are more than resolutions, better than goals. Very cool idea.

2. Lemonade documentary now available on DVD
Yes! It's finally out on DVD. Amazon has it, too. Do. Not. Miss. This. One.

3. This convinces social media skeptics
A neat post from Lois Kelly. Check out the live data counter- cool stuff!

4. Interactive Narratives
A neat collection of visual storytelling from around the world.

5. Fear of bad ideas
Seth Godin does it again. Fabulous reminder in case you missed it.

6. The Checklist Manifesto
If you're into checklists, this is for you! I wrote a short post on the "hero's checklist" when I got inspired seeing how a checklist can save money and lives.

7. Can a speech really change the world?
A thoughtful reminder from communications master and author, Nick Morgan.

8. Social media marketing explained in 61 words
Enough said- this is a perfect definition!
