Creating Evergreen Funnels for a Sustainable Business – with Nick Stephenson

Nick Stephenson: Evergreen runs on all our products all the time, but we will do a live promotion or a live launch once a year. So, for the main product, 10k Readers, we do an affiliate launch once every year and there’s a reason we do it once a year: It’s because it’s exhausting. It makes you want to just go to bed for a week. Pat Flynn: You’re listening to a conversation that I had recently with Nick Stephenson from YourFirst10kReaders.com, who’s also a former guest here on the show back in Episode 162, which was back in May of 2015. When he came on for the first time, he talked about his very first product launch, which was over $130,000.

How to build a 6 figure side business by self publishing books

4 years ago I was broke, looking for a job after 7 failed years as an entrepreneur. Things have changed since, which is great but perhaps the most surprising is the business I’ve built through self publishing books.

Here are all the topics covered in this post, you can click on the topic to go down the page to the content. Getting ideas for your book When I think […]

11 (mostly) free self publishing tools for your next best seller

If you’ve got the creative urge to put out a book, there’s a bunch of (mostly) free self publishing tools and resources to help get you out there as a self-made author. My latest book, Create Or Hate, launched last week. It’s my fourth foray into the world of self publishing. Back before my first book, The 7 Day Startup, I never even considered myself a writer, let alone a published author. Since then my books have been ordered 55,000 times on Amazon and translated into 9 languages. Here’s what I used to get my books out into the wild without a book deal.  No need to wait 17 years for a book deal like renowned author Steven Pressfield did! Dribbble First impressions count – make sure your front cover doesn’t create a bad or indifferent one. With Create Or Hate I spent a lot of time on the front cover […]
