How to Write, Publish and Market…YOU!
I’ll get right to the point. You NEED to know how to write, publish and market. Why? Because you can make a living with those three skills without ever having to get a regular job.
So let’s talk about writing first.
In order to make money you must learn how to communicate. You need to know how to say hello, state your business, thank them for their time, and say goodbye.
This called an elevator pitch
The concept comes from the idea of meeting someone on an elevator who can make you a success. BUT, YOU ONLY HAVE THE TIME YOU’RE IN THAT ELEVATOR TO CONVINCE THEM TO INVEST IN YOU.
So what do you say to them?
That’s why you need to learn how to write. True, you learned the basics in school or perhaps took a course or two in college.
But that’s not writing.
REAL WRITING IS THE ABILITY TO KEEP PEOPLE READING! Page after page, chapter after chapter book after book. Do you know how to do that? You might think you do but you likely don’t. Unless you’ve been writing regularly (meaning every day or so) what you write is likely crap.
All new authors think their early stuff are works of unmitigated genius. I did too.
Then I learned how to write, and now I can barely stand to look at my early work. Not that the ideas or stories were bad, they were quite good. But the writing stunk!
Now let’s look at publishing. Which is basically having something to sell. A book, an album, a painting, a service, a product etc. Do you have one? Then you should get one. Why? Because selling it adds to your monthly income stream. The more stuff you have to sell, the more money you make.
But how do you make that money? That, my friend is where marketing comes in.
So let’s look at Marketing
With the internet you have access to billions of people! For example: Facebook has a billion subscribers, all of whom you can contact and tell them about your thing. Social media outlets have massive ways to contact and interact with others. There’s Twitter, Linked-In, Reddit, blogs, forums and hundreds more!
But here’s the deal. You won’t be able to effectively publish or market your stuff if you don’t know how to write. Of course you can hire people to write for you at elance.com for example. But that costs money and there is no guarantee the person you hire will stay with elance. They might land a writing contract and it’s adios, pal.
WRITING ISN’T HARD. Writing masterful suspense is hard, so is writing an engaging mystery, clever science fiction, and a sparkling romance. Yes they are all hard but those writers all learned how to write so readers would keep reading.
And writing in a way that keeps readers reading is NOT a talent. IT IS A LEARNED SKILL. You need talent to write in the genres listed above BUT… Writing a non-fiction book isn’t hard. Writing a sales letter isn’t hard, writing a business case isn’t hard, writing to tell people what you have to sell isn’t hard. None of that is.
BUT YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW.
And that’s where I come in. My book HOW TO WRITE, PUBLISH & MARKET YOUR BOOK INTO A BESTSELLER teaches you exactly HOW. Learn more
I’m a writer and a publisher. I’ve sold thousands of books as a writer and rejected thousands of books as a publisher. In most cases they were rejected because their writing didn’t keep the readers reading.
It works the same way when you sell something. You’ve likely seen those internet pitches that start off with a video and when you click close(X), the video stops and a pop up message asks you to stay by offering to let you read the basic pitch and if you click close(X) again another pop up appears offering you a FREE gift.
In most cases that works, but it’s annoying. A far better way to market your product is to write a pitch that keeps readers engaged, keeps them wanting to know more.
And I teach you exactly how to do that for under $5 for the e-book and under $7 for the audio book. Check it out here
In the next few weeks I will be publishing a book that explains in great detail how you can make money on the internet, but it won’t help if you don’t know how to write. So Download your copy now and let’s get started Download here
