The idea that authors can’t make money is bull****.
And no, you don’t have to be famous or have a huge online following.
In less than a year I’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 wouldn’t consider it. Many of them started—just like me—without an audience.
After hearing enough of these stories I can tell you they aren’t a fluke. With a good topic and the right marketing tactics you can make a living from teaching as well.
Launch from nothing
Building a following for your blog takes time. It’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 book—and giving readers a way to follow along—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. That’s all in one day. By using landing pages and blog posts to build an email list—and keeping the subscribers interested—you can build a profitable following in very little time. I’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?
