Description

Please Note: This is for nonfiction authors.

I had a book that outsold every other book I published. It was a top seller for more than two years. It had certain ingredients. I'm going to show you what those are and how to do it.

If you focus on this, sales will take care of themselves. It will be like selling diamonds for $10.

There are so many different book marketing and promotion strategies being taught. Which ones should you use? Which method works best?

Wouldn't it be nice if you could just focus on your writing? If you didn't have to spend a lot of your time marketing, how much more time would you have for writing your books?

An author writes books? However, the belief is that, as a self-published author, you also need to set aside a large portion of your time for advertising, marketing, and promotion.

Advertising, marketing, and promotion methods do produce results. However, when you stop, so do the sales. There is a better way.

When you get this right, you really can concentrate on writing your books. Sales will take care of themselves. In fact, results will be better.

Why do certain books stay best-sellers for years? It's because they focus on the one thing that gets the most sales.

I'm going to show you what you need to focus on and how to do it.

- Top three things make books sell themselves.

- Improvements that turn books into best-sellers.

- How to create books that outsell others.

- Find long-term top-selling book subjects.

- Turn readers into raving fans that buy everything you publish.

Let me help you improve your book sales. Enroll now.

  • Self-published authors who want more sales

"We should always continue to improve."

"I love to find better, easier, faster, and more efficient ways to do
things. I then like to help others by sharing what I've discovered."

"You can do anything, within reason. You just need to know how."

I want to help as many people as possible with what they want to improve in their lives. I have done that through my writing since 2001.

Would you like to make nonfiction book writing easy? This is what my first course, Write In Steps, does.

More courses to come.

My history:

I gave my first talk when I was aged twelve. This was in front of over one hundred people. I followed a program designed to improve public speaking and teaching.

I learned computing and went on to develop a computer system to run a business in herbs and spices. This was designed to allow complete novices to generate customer orders and delivery notes. It then allows the finished order to be processed and then invoiced.

I'm telling you this because I want you to understand something. I have always been keen on learning new things. Not only that, but I like to make things work better. So when I found writing books hard, I started to improve my system. The result is that I now have a system that is streamlined and far more efficient. It allows me to produce quality books that readers gain great benefit.

Part of my innovative mentality means that I am always reading about new ideas. I have also learned a lot by viewing instructional videos on Udemy, Youtube, and the like. There's always something new to learn. I take the best from everything and re-assemble it into a better improved process. I temper it with my own personal experience. Continue to make further improvements. Finally, as I like to help others, I teach this knowledge on via books and now video.

I started writing content for the internet in 2001. In 2012 I wrote my first Kindle book, which was published on Amazon.

I have had several best-sellers. My first one was The Easy Way To Clean. It remained my best-selling title for around two years. I currently have more than fifty titles published.

My aim is to help as many people as possible with my experience and knowledge. I also aim to encourage many others to share their knowledge.
