Broke Novelist Makes 27K a Mo Thanks to Stupid Mistakes
Thanks to a Post By PHIL,
Thank you Phil.
I followed one of Phil's Links down the Wabbit hole - found a bankrupt
novelist SO DESPERATE he started writing like mad
and posting his Books and Stories on Kindle.
No Plan. He just tried everything and anything. Wrote more books like the ones that sold.
No advice from anyone. He just started FAILING FORWARD.
ZERO Social Media at all.
Yet in 8 month he's got 80 Info Books on Kindle.
And at the time of his writing about it - he was making btwn 22K and 27K a month.
Here are Three Tested Ideas That Make him The Most Moolah.
#1 - Stories sell 6-1 Better than anything else he's tried.
#2 - He was Floundering until he started writing FOR An Audience in a
specific Category or niche.
#3 - He discovered he can sell 10 page stories for 99cents And 5000 Word
Stories sell just as fast at 2.99 as 99 cents each.
More Proof that Common Sense IS NOT COMMON -
Mr 27K a month has discovered he can write and test more short Stories
than long Novels.
I Never Knew I could test so fast and string my winners together. So
one happy reader can find THE REST of my books or stories.
He's discovered Amazon allows him to list 2 Categories for each book title.
So if he LINKS each book in the same Category - then writes 5 short booklets
of 5000 words or so - he can Spread thru 10 different but similar sub-categories on Kindle.
Instead of netting fish.
He nets more readers.
Here's what has me Excited Though. Even more than a new place to test
for Free and Test into Niches or existing book buyers.
His Discovery that Smashwords and other Services that do your book cover,
format the book, help with the title - HURT HIS SALES by a lot.
We're talking 50% or more Book Sales After he Uses a F-r-e-e Photo archive
to do his own book cover. And test titles himself.
Another COMMON SENSE Point
that has me Excited cuz NOBODY is doing it.
a - Your Book cover must tell the reader at a glance - what the book is about
b - Your Book Title has to Explain what your book is about
Mr 27K a mo says kindle book buyers in the Category you write in SNAP
Up your book based on the Cover and Title ALONE. (I don't buy books like that - so this was a HAPPY Surprise for me!)
1000's of our Competitors on Kindle DO NOT KNOW HOW to Do This.
(I belong to a F-re-e Kindle book service and skim thru 50 to 100 book titles a day. So I DO know this for a fact.)
We're talking 9 out of 10 write titles that HIDE
what the book is about 100% - no clue or way to Guess the content.
This means We Can BEAT All of these folks to the Readers in ANY Niche
we choose to write in.
Thank You Phil!
P.S. - If anybody wants to Write Fast - and Write Better Than You do now.
