Course Description

Who else wants to make money writing and get more book sales?

Writing a great book is just the first step. Now you have to get people to actually buy your book!

In this course, you'll learn how to make a consistent, ongoing income from book sales -- whether you're selling physical books, ebooks or audiobooks.

If you've faced REAL problems trying to market your book successfully, this course is for you.

Unfortunately, over 90% of all Self-Published Authors don't earn enough money to make a living off of their book sales. This is because most authors don't know how to market their books effectively.
