Welcome to our About page! Aleweb Social Marketing has been working predominantly with authors, speakers and entrepreneurs since 2010. Our services have been tailored to meet the needs of that specific niche.
If you are an author who sees your book as a means to an end rather than the end-all-be-all, you’ve come to the right place.
If you are a speaker who recognizes the need to grow your platform in order to generate more business, you’ve also come to the right place.
Most of all, if you’re an entrepreneur wondering whether speaking or writing can help you in your business, you’ve come to the right place.
Our services meet you right where you are in your journey.
Through our Emerald Lake Books division, we offer everything an author needs to take their work from manuscript to masterpiece. Whether you’re looking for someone to edit your book, format it, design a cover, or publish it, we have what you need.
If you’re a speaker trying to figure out how to get the most mileage out of your book, we have the strategies necessary to help you there as well.
Need a website? Cohesive branding? Marketing materials? Social media? We offer those services as well (and more!).
How about some training? Our series, The Bite-Sized Marketer, is a video tutorial subscription service that guides you through the process of marketing yourself online, one bite at a time, making it as simple and painless as possible.
Or if you’re just a little bit stuck and need help with a strategy that will get you back on track, Aleweb can help you devise an editorial calendar, content strategy or social marketing campaign to get you moving forward again.
And for the entrepreneurs among you, there’s also our Best is Yet to Come mastermind group. It’s for serious business people looking for serious business results. The groups are small, which makes them intimate and close, but we gain a lot from each others’ experience, wisdom and know-how. There’s no greater feeling than know that you’ve helped someone else achieve their business goals and dreams.
Tara R. Alemany is the one who pulls all of this together for you. She is the owner and founder of Aleweb Social Marketing.
She brings more than 25 years of experience writing, training and providing application support and business process analysis. All of these skills are used in helping her clients create the visibility they need for successful launches of new books, talks and services.
Tara is the author of autographed paperback, a DIY guide to creating your book marketing plan, as well as of her award-winning book, The Best is Yet to Come. She also co-authored The Character-Based Leader: Instigating a Leadership Revolution… One Person at a Time, and contributed to My Love to You Always and Celebrating 365 Days of Celebration.
Tara speaks frequently on social media, publishing and inspirational topics, and is the creator and host of The Survivors Summit, a virtual inspirational conference held in November, where she brings together powerful speakers with amazing stories of overcoming adversity to create lives of power, passion and purpose.
It’s Tara’s extensive experience as an author, speaker and serial entrepreneur coupled with her technical and business aptitude that enable her to be truly successful in helping others to achieve their business goals.
Her thoughts and insights have also been included in articles on Carol Roth’s Business Unplugged, Marketing Sherpa, Social Media Today, Business2Community, AllTop, SmartBrief and Bank of America’s Small Business brief, and her content has been reprinted in SOLDLab magazine.
In addition to consulting, writing and speaking, Tara serves on the Boards of Directors for a Christian writers’ critique group and is Chaplain of that same group. In her spare time, she is a novice wine maker, a martial artist, a juggler, Mom to 2 teenagers (one of each), step-Mom to 2 dogs (one of each) and is owned by a black cat.
As Tara works with different organizations and speaks to various groups, she regularly keeps her business’s guiding principle in mind, which is based on Ephesians 4:29. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
