I want to share some book publishing tips with you, regardless of how you think you want to publish, or when, check this out. 

Hey friends, have you wanted to become an author but haven’t taken the plunge yet in writing your own book? 

When I got started writing books, I participated in a compilation book. It was much easier to just write one chapter and have someone else coordinate the publication of the entire book and whoala! I was an author!

Now I am in 6 compilation books and have two full books of my own – 4 of which are now International Best Sellers. I say this because becoming an author has “changed me” dramatically with my confidence, belief in myself and my abilities and it’s gotten me numerous opportunities for publicity and exposure as well over the last 13 years now that it’s been since I did the first one.

Watch this video to learn time and money saving tips on how to do this before you enter into any contract or book writing endeavor.

Trust me!

There are so many things to know about writing a book, especially if you plan to sell it and want to make any money with your book. Because the money will not come from the sales of the book most likely, it will come from other things you have in place in your business!

One big tip when you’re writing a full book of your own is to WRITE THE BACK COVER COPY FIRST.

My friend and book coach/mentor, Christine Kloser said this to me years ago and it stuck. It also makes great sense because your back cover is what gets people to want to BUY your book so you have to know what that “transformation” is that they will experience when reading your book. Start there and the rest will be easier.

Do you want to have all the clients you can handle running to your door every month?

Then become an author, write multiple books and/or become an author in a compilation book where you just write one chapter for now if that’s all you can muster but get started now. Being an author has changed my life, upleveled my confidence and opened a lot of doors for me.

In 2018 I gathered 26 others to participate in a compilation book that I published, called Jumpstart Your _____, it went to International Best-Seller in 3 countries!

I’m hosting one again this year and I’d LOVE to have some of you participate!!

  • Imagine, holding YOUR OWN book in your hands before 2019 is done!
  • Imagine what YOUR CLIENTS and prospects will say when they find out YOU ARE AN AUTHOR!
  • Imagine what your friends and family will say?
  • Imagine HOW DIFFERENT YOU WILL FEEL!

It can be super easy for you to do this you know, you may not see that now but you have to trust me. With the books that I publish, I include business and marketing coaching as well with your participation and investment. Not a lot of other publishers do that nor are all of them business and marketing coaches.

When you decide to write a chapter in a book like this, it can become your biggest lead generation strategy.

When people read your chapter, they will want to know more, learn more and talk with you; it just works.

Because I have a marketing focus with these books, you can get “your story out” but you can also get your “marketing message” out in the hands of those who potentially can work with you.

I show you how to use these books as a marketing tool, how to sell them, promote them and integrate them with everything you’re doing in your life and business.

I would love to talk with any of you who are interested at all in this type of opportunity. Please don’t sit back and wait, thinking things like: “I’m way too busy to do this right now” or “I don’t know what to write about” (we help you figure that out) or “I can’t afford to do that right now” (we make it stupid easy for you TO afford it).

Instead… come talk with me in a free chat about books and what being an author can do for you in your business this year and beyond… it can forever change you!!

(PS This story also has to do with my best year ever! You’ll see. I hope you watch and share with me your takeaways.)

If you’re reading this and you STILL HAVEN’T WATCHED that video about my Worst Year in Business Ever, then I urge you take a few moments to go watch it now and you’ll see more of what I mean here…

Stop being too busy for your own good and take the time to get the support and clear advice that YOU need to grow this business faster, will you?

Hey everyone, here’s a quick tip on how to be more successful INSIDE OTHER PEOPLE’S FACEBOOK GROUPS.

First of all, let me say that posting in other people’s groups and other pages and things on Facebook here is one of the main ways I engage with people.

HOWEVER… I do it very strategically and NOT salesy.

So many people (a few of you too have done this and I’ve private messaged you about it) will think that by joining groups like this one, it gives you the rights to just post whatever you want whenever you want.

Not a good plan.

You first want to read the groups “rules” or description which is usually located on the right column and/or it’s often pinned to the top of the group as an announcement.

That will give you some basic guidelines as to when certain posts might be allowed for example; promotions on Wednesdays, inspiration on Tuesdays, Tips on Fridays, etc.

I would also recommend trying to ENGAGE in the COMMENTS of a post whenever you have something of value to add. It will make you look good in the light of the leader of that group because Facebook loves it when posts get comments, not just likes and hearts.

I would refrain from posting salesy mentions about your products and services except maybe once in a while, and best to do this INSIDE THE COMMENTS if you’re able to help someone with your expertise when they ask for support or have a question about something. Blatently posting ads and salesy posts can get you removed and you’re not making friends then, just enemies.

Instead, offer to give free advice, answer questions, give examples and share stories on posts that your comments are encouraged. If people like what you have to say then “ideally” they will click on your profile name to find out more about you and/or private message you.

As for private messaging people inside other people’s groups… there’s nothing wrong with doing that if you have a reason OR if you’re very careful about the wording that you use. Again, do not send a message to promote yourself, it’s like asking someone to go to third base with someone on a first date. NOT COOL.

Social media is all about connecting, building relationships, sharing other people’s info, standing out, getting visibility but in a good way so people perceive you as an expert and THEN that makes them want to know more. Social media marketing and connecting takes time sometimes, it’s not a wham bam thank you mam kind of place.

Try offering to have a phone conversation with people to find out more about THEM… NOT to talk about you.

Business will come if you do the right things in your marketing plain and simple. If you aren’t sure what to do exactly or what to say then ask for and seek help – you must or you may end up burning bridges and being that person no one wants to get to know.

Comment below with your thoughts on this!

Oh and PS – start your own group and build your own community, then you can do whatever you want inside that group. (although I still recommend giving a lot of value first before trying to sell or no one will come back)

Recently I was prepping my materials and PowerPoint for my Speaker Success Bootcamp and it reminded me to bring this to your attention and ask you about Virtual Trainings and Courses…

  • Do you have them? Host them?
  • Want to hold some?
  • Think you could make a lot more residual income if you did host them?
  • Do you attend them or buy them yourself?
  • All good questions right?

I think we all want to find some residual income streams, am I right?

There’s some easy business models that fit the bill for this such as:

  • Affiliate Marketing (making money referring programs, products, systems and technology) – I make a few hundred dollars a month right now using affiliate marketing. Some of my friends make thousands each month; it’s a much bigger strategy for them.
  • Membership Programs (having people pay you a monthly fee to get recurring training or knowledge of some sort from you) – I’m inching up with my Int’l Entrepreneur Network now for this, at $7/month, you can make a nice bit of cash each month if you can get a few hundred people (or even a few thousand!). It’s not as easy as it sounds however.
  • Then there’s creating and running virtual or online training programs, perhaps doing them over and over again live OR boxing them up into Home Study Programs or Courses after you do them live. I have a few of those and I’m actually thinking of bringing some LIVE trainings back this year and next year.
    I’d love to hear your thoughts about a few of the programs that could help you jumpstart your business this year? I created a quick poll on Facebook. Will you go take the poll for me?? I’d really appreciate your input.

JOIN ME for upcoming calls – look on my event page,
or review recent ones on my YouTube!

============================================================

Here’s a quick tip about creating Virtual Programs:

FIRST: Figure out which type of program will fit YOU, Your Lifestyle, Your Personality and Your Clients.

That means, brainstorm about and determine if you should host an ongoing program, or what I call a “start/stop program” that has a specific start date and end date (could be more difficult to fill on time if you’re new to this). Do you want a short term (3-6 week) or longer term program (90 days)? Do you like the 30 day challenge model with daily interaction? The decision is yours however you want to decide carefully based on many factors:

  • How you like to deliver
  • How your clients like to attend or consume info
  • How likely it is that you have hot prospects
  • Price you want to charge
    • Will this be a lower priced offering to get people to “try you out” or a deeper, more comprehensive training farther down your “funnel” and more expensive?

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible but you have to make time to implement this stuff.

YOU can do this and I can help!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Reach out and let’s chat!! I can support you around a LOT more than just marketing and business stuff you know. I help with the ENTIRE JOURNEY. I’ll do a FREE Call with you this month… just answer the questions here to get started. XOXO

Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Catch this Facebook Live with me and my friend PeggyLee Hanson! PeggyLee is one of the speakers at my 2019 Speaker Success Bootcamp this week. On this video we are sharing all about book publishing, being an author, compilation books, speaking… it’s all so vital to being a true expert in your industry!
Get tips for what to write, how to publish and Kindle publishing needs!
One thing we talked a lot about is the FORMATTING of your ebook or print book.

Formatting your book or ebook correctly is absolutely vital to having it read or purchased and especially to getting RAVE REVIEWS!

No reader likes a poorly formatted book or one that’s hard to navigate without easy online click to chapter links for example with ebooks.
The visual experience of your book is something to spend a little time and money on for sure.

Here are a few formatting tips for ebooks:

  1. Make the content easy to read, meaning use words most people use and write like you talk perhaps
  2. Put bulletpoints in and paragraph breaks often so it’s not just paragraph after paragraph of content
  3. Make it easy to click to each chapter from within the Table of Contents
  4. Be careful adding too many pictures, it will make your file very large and not as easily downloadable for users, most ebook readers prefer text only
  5. Add links to pages in your website for easy clicking and opting in for free stuff!
Here are a few formatting tips for print books:
  1. Have enough white space so the text isn’t all crunched together please, that’s just annoying
  2. Have easy to scan copy with lots of smaller paragraphs just like in the ebooks, bulletpoints, numbers perhaps if you’re sharing steps to something and even pictures I think. 
  3. Pictures will add pages to your book if you haven’t written something very long or if you want to spread out the copy a bit. Be careful using pictures that are only good if used in color, color is VERY EXPENSIVE to print in a book! Think about adding a color version to your book on your website perhaps if the pictures really are better in color, then you can link to it from your chapters and also hopefully get people on your email list!
  4. Please remember to drive people to your website whatever you do… add in things perhaps like “Action Steps” at the end of each chapter, or a “Book Resources Download Page” for audios, video content and more. 
  5. Use a header and footer for your pages, it can change for left or right sided pages also so you can alternate what’s on those, but use that space to include your business name, website or title of your book even. 
Want to become an author easier too in 2019? Contact either PeggyLee or myself to help you write your own book OR Check out both of our compilation book opportunities and let US do the work for you in getting published in the next year or so…

Summer Fun

Jason, Riley and I just returned from a week in S. California where we went to Disneyland, California Adventure and 3 different beaches. It was a really fun week, but I’m pretty exhausted this weekend, my body wasn’t used to that much walking around.

Do you know that Riley has a FitBit and calculated that on Father’s Day, Sunday, when we were at Disneyland… we took 26,000 steps?!?! We walked 12 miles that day alone and OMG did we feel it. Thank goodness for the (water rides LOL pic) and the hot tub in the condo pool area, that thing got a LOT of use!

I hope you’re having a fun start to your summer also? I’d love to hear what you’re up to or where you’re going?

I have clients in Spain right now, some have gone to Hawaii, others on cruises… vacations are so important to take when you’re an entrepreneur. We work really hard and we deserve it. If you haven’t planned one in a while or don’t have a vacation on the books of some sort for this year, I urge you to plan something, even a long weekend getaway somewhere. Anything you can look forward to and / or reward yourself with is something you totally deserve.

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible but you have to make time to implement this stuff.

YOU can do this and I can help!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
