Pat Flynn April 22, 2019 I’m incredibly excited about this post, because it’s the first public announcement about a really big milestone coming up this summer!

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 […]

SPI 288: Interview with Bec and Joe from The 4 Blades

This is a fun one! I’m sitting down with Bec and Joe Winston, the brains behind The 4 Blades, a brand in a niche that I never knew existed. What is that niche? It’s a kitchen appliance called the Thermomix. You’ve probably never heard of Thermomixes, but Bec and Joe have built a vibrant digital publication, podcast, and community around them. Bec and Joe’s brand is an incredible success story, and it just goes to show what you can accomplish when you focus on what you’re passionate about. They have a successful brand because of their amazing personalities and perseverance—all in a realm I never even knew about.

Instructions for Next Week’s Bookstore Blitz – SPI TV Ep. 45

I’m on a mission to find out how self-published authors can get their books on the shelves of physical bookstores, and I want your help! When I chose to self-publish Will It Fly?, I was told that it would be nearly impossible to get my book on the shelves of my local bookstore. However, I’d also heard that if there’s enough demand for a particular book, even a self-published one, a bookstore like Barnes & Noble just might put it on their shelves. Here’s where you come in. I want your help building demand for Will It Fly? at Barnes & Noble bookstores around the country—not for my own gain, but to see if it’s possible for self-published authors to break into a space that’s dominated by traditional publishing. Here’s the plan: STEP 1: Between Saturday, April 30th and Monday, May 2nd, visit or call up your local Barnes & Noble bookstore customer service counter […]

Book Publishing Tips with Honorée Corder – SPI TV, Ep. 40

With Will It Fly? launched and out in the world at last, I couldn’t think of a better time to chat about book publishing with Honorée Corder—a truly amazing “authorpreneur,” speaker, and coach. Honorée has an incredible wealth of experience writing books, turning those books into sustainable income, and working with inspirational authors like Hal Elrod. In this episode, she shares why she chose authorpreneurship and where she stands in the traditional vs. self-published debate. She also weighs in on how to uncover the book within you, how to promote it, and why you shouldn’t stop at just one book. Watch and enjoy!
