Course Description

Can you imagine what life will be like after you've written your first ebook?

Writing my first ebook opened doors beyond anything I could imagine.

In just the span of two months:

-I’ve made almost $2000
-got invited to speak at a prestigious conference (UPDATE:and one more to come in Jan 2015)
-and received 5 job offers.

All these from my first and very own self-published ebook on crowdfunding, The Crowdfunded Kit.

If there's one thing I could reassure you, it is that I started out as a complete unknown - no email list, no reputation, no connections. But yet, I still managed to experience some success.

There are many others like me who have achieved way more, simply writing on topics so small and targeted that no book publishers would consider them.

So, I know that this ebook writing thing really works.

With a great topic and the right marketing tactics you can make a living from teaching as well. And you can start- just like me- without an audience.

Nothing is kept secret - I reveal all I know ... and as I continue learning how to write and market my books better, those techniques that are successful are added to the course - at no extra cost to you! This is a course that will continue to grow and grow.

As well as the Udemy 30 day guarantee, you have my personal promise that you will be delighted by what you'll learn in the next 4 hours ... and you'll be kicking yourself if you already had a book idea but are missing out on fabulous potential opportunities to earn a nice side income.

So if you want someone who’s been there, done that to walk you through self-publishing your own ebook for profit, you need to get this course now ... right this minute.

Every minute you delay is actually COSTING you money.

Instructor Biography

Johnathan Leow, Crowdfunding Advisor, Author, Infopreneur

Johnathan Leow is a crowdfunding advisor. He's the author of "The Crowdfunded Kit!"(book version), and enjoys helping startups with idea validation,crowd-funding and growth hacking strategies. He is based out of sunny Singapore.

During his time as Marketing VP at PROTAG, he launched an Indiegogo project for the tech startup and successfully helped raise funding for the Duet (a smart bluetooth tag that watches out for phones) in 2014.

He has since gone on to be a crowdfunding advisor for over 20 startups,and has been able to connect with many other successful project creators and experts in this field. He writes regularly on crowdfunding topics, and his work has appeared on influential blogs such as TheNextWeb and CrowdfundInsider.

Johnathan holds a BA in Sciences (Information Systems Management) from the Singapore Management University, and was originally trained as a Business IT analyst. But he is really a closet journalist at heart. Once, he even worked as a news reporter for Israel's leading innovation news website,NoCamels.

Johnathan loves whipping up exotic recipes(think Uzbekistani food) in the kitchen, and has a relentless thirst to innovate. Come over to his house for dinner sometime.

You won't regret.
