Resources for Writing and Marketing


This is the Writers on The Move Tool Page. You'll find some helpful resources, groups, sites, books, and article links (free and 'not free')

I'll be updating regularly.

LOGO CREATOR

While you will need a graphic designer for some of your content marketing projects, for your blog post images you shouldn't. In fact, I'll go a step further and say 'you absolutely don't.’ And, you don't need to pay $2 per image on image services sites, like Big Stock. All you need is Logo Creator Software.

I design all my own images with Logo Creator. And, if I wanted, I could sell them on one of the image services sites or I could set up shop over at Fiverr. Just check it out for yourself!
