Real Client Experiences

“I’d written a book, but had no idea where to start when it came to marketing that book and fitting it into the scope of my business. I also knew I needed to grow my email list, and was annoyed that it was taking soooo long to grow. I wanted a quicker, easier way. I came to RODW looking for a solution to grow my list and have it working like a well-oiled machine, and left with that and so much more. Carissa helped me get even clearer on what I do and who I serve which has made me EXCITED and energized in my work again! If you’re looking for a simple, step-by-step solution to automate your email marketing and grow your list, this is it.”

“Carissa, I’m writing you today because I wanted to say thank you. Today is a big day for me because I launched my course, Free to Forgive, this morning. It took longer than expected, but due to the things you taught me, it’s there to help people find freedom! You are part of the reason I am here today. The four months we spent working together last spring set me up to complete this section of my journey. You pushed me to improve my craft, clarify my thinking, and better serve my audience. I would’ve never had a large enough audience to launch the course if it had not been for the Readers On Demand Workshop. I am so grateful for that season of partnership and how your investment helped me get to where I am today. Thank you for the way you serve writers like me and help us get our words ready to serve the world!”

“My greatest challenge before RODW was knowing how to reach readers and ‘spread the word’ about my novels. I was frustrated that I didn’t know how to gain access to my perceived audience.

The greatest change after RODW was growing my list! It is already nearly 10 times as big! Started reaching the audience, but also had a “friendly ear” to listen when I had problems with new marketing techniques.

My favorite things were reaching my audience and having a “friendly ear” to listen when I had problems with new marketing techniques.

This is the best investment you will ever make! I will continue to consult with RODW, as I am still new to the “marketing game,” and will undoubtedly need more help. But Carissa Magras is the genius I needed to get everything going.”

“Readers On Demand ended up being the missing piece in my life (not just with my writing and marketing.) In fact, I’ve been looking for it for a long time but just didn’t know what I was missing. Within two weeks of working with RODW and doing exactly what Carissa said, I realized I’d found it. My whole mindset on myself, my worth, my work, and my focus has shifted. To say that literally everything has changed (and I’m not even done with the program yet!) understates it. What I’ve done isn’t just affecting my career. It’s affecting my entire life.”

Award-winning YA Fantasy & Chicklit Author

“I felt like I had no support in the book industry and like I was completely lost. I had no one to ask questions of and no direction to go, it was just a cloudy blank world. It was making me feel like I was never going to get published and was incredibly disheartening/blocking my creative juices. Now [after RODW] I have a website and am working on building my 10k list to entice publishers and have a ton of people to sell to, have rave about me and serve with this book. Getting a website up, that was the biggest difference, and knowing what to write on it. I have wanted that for years. Carissa is phenomenal help, super generous, you won’t regret having her on your side. If you’re lost with all the options out there, she will guide you.”

“My attitude toward my writing has changed. I don’t doubt myself and make excuses anymore. I don’t feel like a failure anymore. I feel energized and motivated to keep taking the next step. I used to think anyone could write and publish a picture book – well, sure, they can, but they don’t. I’m actually doing it! I like having steps to follow and a process to trust so I don’t get overwhelmed. Thank you, Carissa!”

“Carissa truly cares about me and the people I impact. She wants to see people become their best self. I can’t imagine where I would be without her today! If I tried to fix myself on my own it would have cost me so much time, money and energy. Working with her has been priceless.”

“I didn’t know what to expect from coaching, and I was nervous making such a big investment, especially with someone I barely knew. I am so grateful I went with my gut and joined Carissa’s program. Both Carissa and RODW far exceeded my expectations and I cannot recommend her or her program highly enough.”
