Who is a publisher?  Every entrepreneur is a publisher.  A website, blog, press release, emails are all methods of publishing.  If the reality of this has not sunk in yet, it may be a good time to count the number of words you and your team will write this year. 

500 words a day x 240 days for the year = 120,000 words.  This would account for only one person writing emails, blog articles, fliers for advertising and possibly press releases.

The internal correspondence from within a company has potential for becoming published.  For a business NOT to consider the option to re-purpose internal communication could be considered a waste.

Going head-to-head with a competitor which has more advanced methods such as DFP for advertising products and services might create a perpetual uphill battle for business success.

Fortunately there are a couple of simple tutorials to give the entrepreneur a head start.
