SPI 206: How SPI Reader Robert Duff Is Building Passive Income with Books on Amazon

I’m very excited to introduce you to another SPI listener success story. Here with me this week is Robert Duff, Ph.D., a psychologist who’s supplementing his income by selling his books on Amazon.

Will It Fly? from Start to Finish—How I Wrote a Wall Street Journal Bestseller – Part 1

When I was close to finishing the manuscript for my new book, Will It Fly?, my author coach (and more than anything else, accountability coach) for this project, Azul Terronez, said something that took me by surprise: “It’ll be fun to see how many books you sell. You might even get on some of the bestseller lists.” When I made the decision to self-publish Will It Fly? last year, I also made the choice to not worry about getting on the bestseller lists, because I didn’t think it was possible as a self-published author. After some research, however, I found out that it is possible, but it’s no easy task. After even more research, I realized just how ambiguous these lists can be, and what I learned became a real turn off. You might think that a bestselling book is one that sells the most copies, but that’s not exactly […]

He’s been helping me for a while, but you likely didn’t know about him. His name is Non, and he’s awesome. He helped to lead the social media push on Will It Fly.  Because I was busy last week at the Traffic and Conversion Summit, he volunteered to write up this post, and I […]
