About This Class
This class on LEARNING is Module Sixteen of the "17 'ings' of Self-publishing" course
In Make Learning a Daily Habit & Use Google Alerts to Stay Ahead of the Curve in Your Particular Niche you will learn the importance of life-long learning and keeping abreast of what is happening in both your own niche as well as in the self-publishing industry.
Specifically, you will learn:
- Why it is important to make learning a daily habit in order to stay ahead of the curve in your niche
- What are the best resources for keeping abreast of what's going on in the world of self-publishing
- How to set up a Google Alert for a topic within your niche or genre
- How to refine your Google Alert to make it more relevant to your niche
By using Google Alerts in this way will help you keep up-to-date with what is going on in your particular niche and also help you be more productive when writing new content for your tribe.
So go ahead and enrol in my class and I look forward to seeing you on the inside.

I also teach classes about course creation, online learning platforms and teaching, and recently, I launched the Writer Teacher Facebook Group as a place where self-published authors and online teachers can hang out to discuss how to make a significant income from your writing through the repurposing of content that you have already written in the form of online courses.

A Little Bit More About Me
My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.
Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time, I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.
In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.
During the last 15 years, I have written non-fiction books in a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time Writer Teacher within the next couple of years.
I have an eclectic range of interests, including languages, writing, history, online marketing, design and travel. I also have a passion for cooking and eating healthy food, as well as the traditional Slovak dishes I have discovered, whilst living in the heart of Europe.
I have created a number of online courses for many of my niches and I have set up both the How To Publish An eBook and the Teach Someone A Lesson websites to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
