Why Including Multiple Bonuses With Your Kindle Book No Longer Work

imgCover-Schmooze-125x199

imgCover-Schmooze-125x199I recently published my sixth book on Amazon Kindle. I hosted a LIVE webinar showing step-by-step how to set up your Kindle publisher account and upload your manuscript.

One thing I said on the training is that my newest digital book, Schmooze Your Way to Success, would not sell any copies. Why would I admit this on the webinar?

Because after publishing 5 of my 6 books through Kindle, I know exactly what needs to be done to sell books…

You can’t just write a manuscript, then upload it to Kindle expected to sell thousands of downloads. The marketing of your book has to start THE DAY you start writing the manuscript. Any later than that, and frankly, it’s too late.

I’ll tell you exactly what doesn’t work when it comes to Kindle book marketing…

Here’s One of 5 Top of Mind Problems Your Kindle Book Must Solve

There’s a simple reason why authors don’t sell more of their books. They’re boring. In other words, the book that’s written does not focus on one of the 5 top of mind problems.

If you’re stuck wondering what to write about, this is your answer…

People don’t care about your winning smile or fancy college degree(s). You may the brightest bulb in the scoreboard, but if your book  doesn’t promise something, the reader will not buy.

That’s the secret to selling more copies – without selling…

I’m Publishing My Sixth Book Through Kindle – And You’re Invited to Watch

leesaWithP4P

I always thought I was a horrible writer. In fact, I would loudly proclaim that I’m not a writer and I actually stink at it. That’s until I got my first book contract.

I very quickly changed my tune…

With an aggressive deadline and a cash advance, I pulled up my socks and produced almost 50,000 words in 4 short months. My first book, Podcasting for Profit, was printed by my publisher just in time for the Podcast & New Media Expo, an annual gathering of podcasters in Los Angeles.

I cried the very first time I held my book…

Watch Me As I Setup My Next Book Through Kindle

imgBanner-ksb-free

I love books. I read instead of watching television. I have a library card which means I check out both digital and non-digital books on a weekly basis. I also buy TONS of digital books through Kindle.

My first book was published in 2007…

My first book, Podcasting for Profit, was published through the traditional way. I was introduced to a publisher, I signed a contract, I got an advance, then wrote 50,000 words in 4-months. I had a great publisher. He checked in with me weekly to make sure I was producing and writing. I loved working with him.

Podcasting for Profit was released at the Podcast & New Media Expo in 2007. I remember holding it for the first time while at the show. Tears were in my eyes. The book felt so good in my hands.

But a monster was unleashed…

I loved the feeling of helping people through my book. I loved it so much, I wanted to publish more and more. It took another 4-years, but I was finally able to self-publish my very first title in 2011 called Multiple Streams of Virtual Event Income.

Kindle made me do it…
