This Is Crazy
I just found out about a guy who made more than $100,000 over the past few months by...
wait for it... SELLING eBOOKS ON Amazon's KINDLE
Robert Grant told me about this guy and I immediately thought - that's amazing! I want to know his secret - since I know most authors don't make anywhere close to that amount with their Kindle ebooks.
I asked him to do a webinar for my list - to show us how he does it.
Anyway, I think this will fill up pretty quick, so register now if you want to take a look: https://musicbizcenter.infusionsoft.com/go/kcf-jkgtw/kcf-jkb

Book Marketing Makeover Months
During the months of December and January, I'm going to be featuring interviews with other book authors and book marketing stars on their key tips for marketing their books successfully.
You could be part of this special event. Simply email me with your answers to the following questions:
1. How large is your platform or network? Did you use your platform or network in marketing your book? If so, how?
2. Are you involved in any social networks? Have you used them in marketing your book? Again, if so, how?
3. Have you created and posted any online videos? Did any of them go viral? How many people viewed them?
4. What publicity produced the best results in terms of book sales? Magazines, newspapers, radio, TV? Which TV shows or magazines created the most impact?
5. Did you speak to promote your book? If so, what audiences or venues produced the best sales?
6. What Internet marketing technique produced the best sales results for your book? Did you do anything interesting to boost the effectiveness of the technique?
7. What book marketing technique produced the best sales results for your book? Give some details or tell a story on how you carried out your marketing campaign.
Instead of answering all these questions, if you have a good story to tell - that would be just as good.
After answering the above questions, please also send me your name and website or blog, plus a short sales message. This information will be featured at the end of your interview.
Please note: Your interview and link will be featured on one of my websites. Links from my website are guaranteed to increase the traffic to your website as well as improve your Alexa ranking and Google love.
