I hear about people that want to earn a living with something to do with the environment.   I would imagine that somebody could set up a fancy web site that would talk about the book, and then connect adwords to that web site, they could sell a bunch of copies.  

Or maybe comment on some pemaculture mailing lists.   Or on some blogs.   Or social media.

I've tried to set stuff up so people could make real coin.   And there are probably thousands of places a person could go and tell others about the book and people actually buy!

And then ...   there is SEO stuff!

I suspect that a person would make a web page for the book and then they would research what people type into google.   Maybe the search phrase "at home environmentalism" is popular at google (I don't really know).   And so they make a page called "at home environmentalism" and talk about ideas from the book.   And then they do things that make google happy.  And then google starts sending a bunch of people to the page.  And people buy the book.  And the person that made the page, harvests a 50% affiliate fee.

Hi Paul!

I have probably read and watched more of your videos/ podcasts than I'd like to admit! Haha

So first question, where is this available to buy? Need to read it and see if in enthuses me, ifmit does I'm happy to give it a go selling it :)

Talk soon
Toby
