The idea that authors canâ€™t make money is bull****.
And no, you donâ€™t have to be famous or have a huge online following.In less than a year Iâ€™ve made over $150,000 from self-published books. Plenty of my friends have made far more, all writing on topics so small and targeted a traditional publisher wouldnâ€™t consider it. Many of them startedâ€”just like meâ€”without an audience. After hearing enough of these stories I can tell you they arenâ€™t a fluke. With a good topic and the right marketing tactics you can make a living from teaching as well.
Launch from nothingBuilding a following for your blog takes time. Itâ€™s especially difficult when you may not have a clear goal in mind for your blog. But products change that. Just the act of writing a bookâ€”and giving readers a way to follow alongâ€”will make it substantially easier to build a following. In July 2012 I had just 100 RSS subscribers to my blog, two months later I had a $12,000 book launch. Thatâ€™s all in one day. By using landing pages and blog posts to build an email listâ€”and keeping the subscribers interestedâ€”you can build a profitable following in very little time. Iâ€™ll show you how to do it step-by-step. With the right audience, a solid launch plan, a little discipline, and a lot of effort, you can make a living from your writing. Interested?
