Will this work for fiction or non-fiction? What about children’s books?
Yes, yes, and yes. Although non-fiction is the easiest to sell, the same basic elements go into selling any book—things like having a professional cover design, writing compelling sales copy, and getting the book in front of the right people.
What if I’m brand new and have no email list?
No problem. Most of my clients don’t. I’m hosting this course assuming you have no fans, following, email list, or connections. If have any of that, it will make things even easier for you.
Will this help me if my book is traditionally published?
Unfortunately, with a traditional publisher or a hybrid publisher, you don't have control over the decision to implement most of the strategies in this course. You may still learn some interesting things, but the course is intended for self-published authors.
What if I don’t want to sell my book on Amazon?
This course probably isn’t for you. For most indie authors, Amazon accounts for 80-90% or more of book sales. That’s why we’ll be focusing most of our efforts on selling through Amazon.
What if my book is already out?
No problem. My last book had been out for years before I finally launched it. You can still use these strategies to re-launch an old book (or launch it for the first time). You will have a slight disadvantage in that Amazon factors the average sales over the last 30 days into its Bestseller rankings, so if your book has been out for longer than 30 days and not selling, you'll have to sell more copies than you otherwise would to get the same ranking. That makes it a little harder, but it's still very doable.
What if I haven’t finished writing my book yet?
You’re in a great position to get the most out of this course! I find that the earlier you can start thinking about marketing the book, the better. By taking this course now, you can set yourself up for success. When you know where you’re going, it’s a lot easier to get there. You’ll also have lifetime access to the entire course, so it will be there for you when your book is ready to launch.
What if I already own the Bestseller Launch Blueprint? Do I need this course?
The Bestseller Launch Blueprint is designed to teach you the six crucial elements for a successful book launch. This course is centered around those same six elements, and it digs deeper into the reasoning behind each step and how to implement it for your book. The blueprint stands on its own; this course is for you if you want more and/or if you like learning with video lessons.
What if I don't already own the Bestseller Launch Blueprint? Do I need to buy it before I take this course?
No, the course assumes you're brand new to marketing and launching a book. There are no prerequisites.
How long will this course take?
The video lessons are just under two hours altogether. There are also some optional demo videos totaling about an hour. Of course, how long it takes to implement will depend on you.
What if I'd rather hire you to launch my book for me?
You'll want to hire one of our Certified Bestseller Book Marketers. You can learn more here.
