I just finished writing my very first book and are having it published on createspace. I was wondering what all I could do to market it.

Increased Sales, God's Way!

Posted by Keatts Sep 29, 2015

I once was employed by a company that had relations with Costco Wholesale Stores across the United States. No one expects very much from you on your first day at work. As a sales advisor my job was to promote and demonstrate. On my first day I sold approximately 85 boxes of a nutritional product. On my first day I had the highest sales!

 

One day I sat at my desk at home and just jotted down 10 key principles for increased sales. Now, I never knew back then that I would ever write a book that was based on those principles. Anyone can hit a good day. But can you do it everyday?

People often remark how they would like a promotion someday. This book is about being promoted the next day!

 

In my new book I will teach you principles that work! This book is not about some new insight that I have stumbled upon. These are principles as old as dirt but for the most part have been ignored. I'm excited about this book. Increased Sales, God's Way is a 32 page book that can be read in 45 minutes. This is a study book to teach you how to increase and to stay increased!

Best Internet Based Businesses

Posted by Maluth Sep 29, 2015

In my previous post titled, "Sep Up Online Business Account ", I made it clear that, to get started online, you need to know who you are. For a quick help on this, check the Getting Started Page.IMG00133

The first thing that you need to know before you think of starting your internet based business is finding yourself. Daniel Ohide said, "In order for you to find yourself, you must first get lost", and I found this to hold water.

Who Are You?

As usual, we are asking this same question again, "Who are you"? Unless you discover the real you (Check out the book at your right hand side), you will find it hard to get started online. Knowing the real you, means discovering who you are naturally.

To me, we humans, we are both physical and spiritual. What? YES! You have read it correctly. We are made of two things---Hardware and Software. We don't have to believe this in order for it to be real. It has nothing to do with religion either.

Finding the real you is important, because it is only then that you will begin to know who you REALLY are! Because I accept the fact that I am a physical person, I need physical food to grow and stay healthy. Because I also accept that I am spiritual, I also need spiritual food in order to grow and remain healthy spiritually---Software updates!IMG00128

You see the point?

Chip Ingram said, "We become what we eat physically", and this is 100% true. We also become what we eat spiritually, or you can call it 'what we eat mentally'. So, whatever you accept to be true about you, will be who you are! If you believe or accept the fact that you cannot create a website, then there you are! But if you are sure you can do it, then nothing will stop you from doing it now.

What Do You Love Doing?

Next, what do you love doing? I mean, we work for different reasons---money, food, cloths and other issues. We work because of something outside us, and I call this an external force. Check out The Author's Experience for more info on this issue.IMG00191

Sometimes we are not sure of what we love doing. Think of what you find yourself doing with leisure. It may be something simple. It can be swimming, running, fishing, walking around to see the natural world, or playing games. You can turn that into a full-time job!

If you are not sure, ask your close friends about your talents and gifts, and they will be able to tell you. You can also ask your parents, guardian, or whoever you think can help you find your talents. However, you are the best person to know what you like and what you don't.

Best Internet Based Businesses

Here, I will show some of the best internet based businesses that you can do at home, or as you travel. However, there is no money for free, or else I will be teaching you to be a thief. Even stealing has to be done with care, because it is deadly, right? So, bear in mind that any success requires work. That is why you need to know what you love, since you can't just do anything and succeed.

Freelancing Businesses---Here I mean being a writer. If you love this, it will not take you long to write great articles either for yourself or for others. People need a quality content, and if you can provide it, they pay you for that. There are many places online to either write and publish your writings, or write for others.

  • Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing---kdp.amazon.com
  • Smashwords---www.smashwords.com
  • Lulu---www.lulu.com
  • CreateSpace---www.createspace.com

Affiliate Businesses---There are so many affiliate businesses today online. Amazon Associate, Payoneer Affiliate, Commission Junction, Internet Download Manager, IObit, SFI and Wealthy Affiliate are just a few of these programs. You promote products and services and you get paid when someone purchases them. There are many illegitimate ways of many money online, but you are on your own if you use them! Beware of getting free scams online. Read product reviews from people who have used the products. Check out my reviews for the products and services I use below. There are reviews about: Payoneer MasterCard, Wealthy Affiliate Program, IObit ASC, and IObit Malware Fighter, and more are coming soon.

Conclusion

Well done, and thanks for reading. In this post, you have read about the importance of knowing who you are. You know who you are, and what you love doing. You have seen some legitimate programs that you may like to use based on your likes and dislikes. Now, it is your time to take action.

HDIFF this past weekend

Posted by Seal May 27, 2014

I worked the High Desert International Film Festival here in Pahrump this last weekend and had a unique opportunity to meet, greet, and party with film makers, producers, stars and writers. Also in attendance were Ann Serling (As I Knew Him) and Sophie Tweed-Simmons. In addition I slipped 60 copies of my book A Very Tubby Christmas into the swag bags given out to the film makers and VIPs. Now I am just waiting for feedback from the many I talked with.

 

And finally, on Saturday morning I hosted a Flash Fiction contest.  I gave them 3 articles they had to included in their stories and 15 minutes to write it. Amazing how someone who has lives in Calgary and another in New Zealand were able to come up with a story that fit "a toothpick, a snow shovel, and a Yucca Tree when they only have the slightest idea what the heck a Yucca is.

 

All in all, Dorothy and I enjoyed ourselves, as did the filmmakers, etc.

Why swap reviews when

Posted by Seal Jul 23, 2013

you can swap book sales? The only reviews that hold any weight with me are reviews by individuals who have bought the book, paperback or Kindle, and have given an honest opinion of the book. I don't care if the individual is a friend, relative, or stranger - if they put out their money, then they have the right to make a review, good, bad or indifferent.

 

Swapping reviews by trading ebooks or print books, just doesn't hold water with me. Buy my book and I will buy yours. Give me your book and I will give you a review, but without the "verified purchase" label it just sounds as if I am there stroking your ego in an effort to make it look as if your book may be better than it really is.

 

Opinions?

My book is about World War II . "BAHALA NA (Come What May): A WWII Story of Love, Faith, Courage, Determination and Survival".  I am able to secure a book signing this coming Saturday in Charleston, SC where I live.  The venue is at Patriots Point, home of the USS Yorktown.  Patriots Point is a big tourist attraction and I was told they have a big crowd on Saturdays.  My question is how many books do you think I should have with me.  I'm doing it for four hours.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi, Community. My name is Raphael T. Harlan, and I'm a beginning author since October of last year. I wrote and self-published two books, "The Woman of Greatness and Inspiration: A Tribute to My Mom" and "Unlimited No Contract Cell Phone Companies vs. Unlimited Contract Cell Phone Companies." Since I self published my two books, I promoted them at four open mics in my town of Flint, Michigan, and I also promoted them on Amazon and on Facebook as well as on my email. I even made my own website at www.raphaeltharlanbooks.weebly.com and promoted my two books. The "Unlimited No Contract Cell Phone Companies vs. Unlimited Contract Cell Phone Companies" book is available wherever books are sold, and my first book is sold on Amazon and CreateSpace, and they are both available in paperback and Kindle versions.

 

Good news, I sold 53 copies of both my books, but the bad news is only 5 copies were sold online. In December of last year, I decided to have my booksigning on February 22, 2013, and I planned the promotion for it. I promoted my facebook page for me as an author, and promoted my booksigning on Facebook. I even spent $697 on newspaper advertisements to get new audience to come and $15 on Facebook advertisements. At my booksigning, only eight people came, including four new people. I ordered 60 copies of two books, and I sold five copies. I promoted them on flyers.

 

So, I don't know if I chose the wrong date to have my booksigning because the day of my booksigning, it was snowing a bit, like an inch, even though I reminded people on Facebook or chose the wrong place to have my booksigning or promoted wrongly. What should I do to have a successful booksigning because I want to have a successful writing career in my lifetime. I'm 21, but I want to be succeed in writing books and having booksignings. I'm currently in my third year of college majoring in graphic design, but I'm currently writing my third book, which will either be a poetry book or a short story book, which is general fiction. Plus, I'm 21 years of age.

 

Here are my website and Facebook Page, where you find the links to where people can buy my books.
