Amazon Book Marketing—Everything You Need to Know with Dave Chesson from Kindlepreneur

Pat Flynn: Alright. We’re about a month away, a little over a month away from the publication of my brand new book, Superfans. And like with a lot of things I do, I love to kind of take you behind the scenes and also bring on experts on SPI to show you who I’m learning from about certain things. So next week you’re going to hear from my book coach, Azul Terronez, and how he helped me through writing Will It Fly? And how I’ve applied those things to Superfans, how to know what to write your book about, how it gets involved in your business, and it’s not just like a book that stands alone. But that’s for next week. This week, on today’s episode, you’re going to hear from Dave Chesson from Kindlepreneur.com . . . That’s right, Kindlepreneur. This is his job to teach people how to […]

Pat Flynn: Building a business is all about transformation. For you as a business owner: learning from your mistakes, growing over time, adapting to different situations, hopefully becoming a better person, one percent better every single day perhaps.

And hopefully you’ve been transformed over the year, through a number of the examples that people have set here as guests on the show, sharing their stories and transformations that they’ve had.

Selling a Book? Overlooking This Page Could Kill Sales—Book Marketing with Bryan Cohen

Pat Flynn: Writing a book . . . probably one of the hardest things you could ever do in your life. I’ve written a few books, and I plan to write some more, but every time I think about the process it makes me want to throw up, because it is such a struggle. I’m so thankful that, for example with my book, Will It Fly?, I got connected with a guy named Azul who became my book coach. But writing is just part of it. What about the selling and the marketing, and the promotional aspects that should go along with the book-writing process too? There are so many ways that you can promote a book, and we’ve talked about a number of those ways in past episodes of the SPI Podcast. We’ll include links to all those shows from the past that talk about book marketing on the […]

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 […]
