Dear Authors and Self-Publishers,

If you haven’t yet heard the news, Amazon is CLOSING CreateSpace, and ALL of your titles will be moving to Kindle Direct Publishing.

What’s that mean for you?

Well, for starters, you’ll GET PAID LESS OFTEN, and YOUR ROYALTIES JUST MIGHT GO DOWN.

You’ll have to UPDATE FILES, and in many cases, YOU’LL NEED NEW COVERS.

And, there’s NO TELLING what other issues are going to crop up as this combined platform is tested with YOUR TITLES on the line!

I don’t have to tell you – writing is some of the hardest work out there.  It’s also extremely rewarding, but most days, you probably feel as if the paycheck doesn’t reflect your dedication and efforts.

I’m going to tell you how you can CHANGE all of that by doing one SIMPLE thing.

First, though, I want to know if this sounds familiar:

  • You’re writing and publishing great books on Amazon, but your sales numbers are low.
  • You’re using KDP Select Free Days to promote, but the results have been mixed at best.
  • Formatting your CreateSpace book was a real challenge, and based on sales, you’re not sure it was worth it.
  • You’re Active on Social Media, but it often feels like wasted effort.

In other words, you’re working your tail off, but the results are discouraging, and you’re beginning to question whether or not you’re “good enough,” or “smart enough,” or “talented enough” to make this whole publishing thing work.

Rest assured you ARE good enough, smart enough, and talented enough.

The problem isn’t you: It’s AMAZON.

 

AMAZON is both your best friend AND your worst enemy.

There’s no doubt that AMAZON is the BIGGEST, MOST POWERFUL, and MOST USED platform when it comes to books being bought and sold.

I publish there, and you should too, but . . .

IF you ONLY look to Amazon, you’re leaving THOUSANDS of dollars in PROFIT on the table.

Take a Moment to Consider These Drawbacks to Publishing on Amazon . . .

  • ​Amazon’s Low Price Points = Less Profit
    Typically, eBooks sell from $2.99 – $4.99, which means only $2.00 – $3.50 in profit per sale.  With one SIMPLE
    change, you COULD be earning $9 or MORE per sale.   
  • ​The Total Number of Pages Counts on Amazon.  More Pages = More Work & Slower Publication Speed
         Imagine Selling 20 Page Books for $9, $17, $27 or MORE, without Upsetting Buyers!
  • ​Amazon Doesn’t Provide Sellers with Any Customer Information
         It’s YOU and YOUR BOOK that earned those sales, so you SHOULD get that information and be able to follow
    up with YOUR customers.
  • Amazon’s ​Affiliate Payouts Are Low & the Rules Are Convoluted
         This Discourages Affiliates from Promoting Your Book, Which Robs YOU of HUNDREDS or THOUSANDS of
    Dollars in Sales.
  • Amazon Doesn’t Allow ​Add Ons, Upsells, Downsells, or OTOs, so You Can’t Offer Your Customers Extras
         Customers LOVE Extras, and They INCREASE Your Profits, so Again, Amazon Is STEALING MONEY from You.
  • Amazon ​Calls All The Shots, and They’re Hard to Contact
         Accounts Get Closed, Payments Get Missed, and Rules Get Changed, but Authors Are Often Ignored by
    Amazon’s Customer Service Department – Because We’re NOT Customers!
  • Amazon’s Payouts Take 30 Days (or LONGER), and Often There Are Significant Service Fees Involved
         We All Know AMAZON Takes the Customer’s Money Right Away, so Why Make Us Wait?  And Why Charge
    Some of Us More to GET the MONEY WE EARNED?

SO, WHAT’S THE ANSWER?

It’s SIMPLE: Start thinking of yourself as a PRODUCT CREATOR instead of just an author, and you’ll be able to EARN HUNDREDS or THOUSANDS MORE.

Take a Look at the REWARDS You’ll Get from Expanding Your Horizons Beyond Amazon . . .

  • You Can Set Higher Price Points For Your Work, so You’ll Earn Greater Profits
         Outside of Amazon, You Can Charge = $7-$27+ for Content That’s IDENTICAL to Your Kindle & CreateSpace
    Books.
  • Unlike Amazon, QUALITY Means More Than PAGE COUNT
         Fewer Pages = Less Work & FASTER Publication Speed, so You’ll Earn GREATER PROFITS.
  • Other Platforms Give You the Customer Information YOU Earn
         You Can Follow Up with Additional Offers and Increase Your Profits Over and Over Again.
  • You Determine How Much You Want To Pay Affiliates & the Rules Are Clear
         This Means It’s EASY to Recruit OTHER SELLERS to Help You EARN MORE.
  • You CAN Offer Add Ons, Upsells, Downsells, and OTOs
         These Will Increase Your Profits Dramatically, and Customers LOVE Extras.
  • Other Platforms Are INVESTED in YOU, and They Are EASY to Contact
         Amazon Sells WAY More Than What YOU Offer, but These Other Platforms Depend ENTIRELY on People Like
    YOU.
  • Payouts Are Generally INSTANT, and Fees Are LOW
       That Timeline Sure Beats Waiting 30 Days For Your Money, Plus You’ll NEVER Give the Other Places ANYTHING
    CLOSE to 30% on Each Sale.

I have a plan YOU can follow to break the chains of Amazon, Kindle, and CreateSpace, so you can earn MUCH HIGHER PROFITS . . . and it all starts with a SIMPLE shift in mindset.

YOU ARE NOT JUST AN AUTHOR . . . YOU ARE A PRODUCT CREATOR!

Inside the More Than Amazon Training

Your Sneak Peek

YOU ARE A PRODUCT CREATOR

This session will CONVINCE you WHY you have to EXPAND and HOW to get it done.

SESSION #2: Those OTHER Platforms

AMAZON, KINDLE AND CREATESPACE ARE GREAT,
BUT THERE’S MONEY TO BE MADE ELSEWHERE

Whatever you HAVE published, and whatever you PLAN to publish, you can EARN MORE by moving away from focusing solely on Amazon.

Why put all of your eggs into the Amazon basket when there’s more money to be made elsewhere?

I’m going to show you why you MUST be publishing in multiple places, and how calling a “book” a “product” = $$$.

Oh, and it’s NOT hard to do.  I’ll show why shifting away from relying on Amazon publishing alone can be the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION you make to increase your income this year.
