Course Description

Ready to write and publish your first eBook?  This course is for people who want to write eBooks that SELL. I do not teach from what I do not know so I have a Student of Learning, Kate Redwine, joining us in this course. She has THREE International Best Sellers on Amazon and Kindle and in this course she taught us how to do the same using tools that produce real results. Anyone can write an eBook - yes anyone - our goal is to write an eBook that sells! This will be a LASER FOCUSED month so be prepared!

After taking this course and going through Kate's 14-day FREE course I launched my first eBook "YouTube Video Marketing Secrets Revealed: The Beginners Guide to Online Video Marketing" and it was in the top 10 in its category on Amazon before it officially launched!  Several times it ranked in the #1 categories out of 3 and it was consistently in the Top 10 in the 3 categories Amazon allows you to choose.  During the FREE KDP promotion (you'll learn more in the course) it ranked #1 all 5 days! You will get all the notes and tools used to make your book a #1 Amazon Best Seller!
