Did you know the average book sells less than 200 copies, and most of those are purchased by the AUTHOR???
Have you ever wondered why some authors sell so many books while others sell so few?
If you didn’t already know the answer — the difference is that best-selling authors have an established author platform. An author platform is simply a group of readers who want to read more of what an author writes. So, when you have a new book release, your ready-made platform of book-buyers rushes to Amazon to order a copy.
OK, so you know you must build an author platform in order to sell more books, but has anyone actually explained to you WHAT goes into building an author platform?
That’s what I thought. In the publishing industry, authors often hear a list of shalts and shalt nots, and rarely does someone sit down with an author and share step-by-step answers on what you need to do.
But, that’s what I’m about to do. Introducing . . .
The “Build an Author Platform” Free Checklist
In my Build and Author Checklist, you’ll get a step-by-step task list that tells you what to do in order to build your author platform. No more guessing. No more wasting time. No more wondering if you’ve left out something important. And, best of all, no more wasting dollars on so-called info products that give you a lot of fluff piled onto a little information – because this checklist is ABSOLUTELY FREE!
In this list, you’ll learn where to start, what’s needed to set up the hub of your author platform, and, the must-do step that many authors completely bypass. Missing out on this can make the difference between success and failure. (Hint: It’s step 3.)
There’s also a vast difference between book MARKETING and book SELLING.
Step 4 of this checklist shares how to set up a book selling system the way best-selling authors do it. And this checklist doesn’t simply state the main item and leave you to figure out what to do. No, it follows up with a list of tasks needed to complete each step.
How do you get your FREE copy of this checklist?
Simple. Fill out the form below and click the submit button.
Here’s what happens when you submit the form:
- When you submit your name and email address using the form, you’ll be redirected to a page letting you know your form was properly submitted.
- Then, wait a few minutes (probably less than 5) and check your email. You’ll get a message requesting you to confirm your email address. This is for your protection so we’ll know for sure it was YOU who asked for this checklist, not some spammer posing at you. (Can you believe some people? Sheesh!)
- Click on the link in that confirmation email, and you’ll be redirected to the page with the download link to your free checklist.
- Boom. That’s it! This process only takes a matter of minute, and think how much time and frustration this checklist will save you!
- Oh, and you’ll get a few more emails over the next couple of weeks. The first (after that confirmation request) will contain your checklist download link, just to make sure you got it. (The redirects should work just fine, but I’m kind of anal when it comes to making sure people get what I tell them I’m going to give them. Please excuse my OCDness!)
- After that message with the download link, you’ll get a message that tells a bit about me (the why-should-I-listen-to-this-person-I-don’t-even-know story) and my experience with helping authors build their platforms. You’ll also get another message or two that explains the Build an Author Platform website and what kind of useful content you can find here.
- Finally, and this is the best part, you’ll get periodic follow-up messages that share exclusive content not published on our website. Information, training, and offers that are EXCLUSIVELY shared with YOU and our list members.
Whew! There was a lot of blah, blah, blah in all that, but some people want to know all the particulars before they type in their email address and click the button. I can’t blame you if you’re one of those. Who wants an inbox full of SPAM? Not me! And I promise to NEVER share your email address with anyone else. If you get future messages because you requested this checklist, they will be coming from me and will be relevant to helping you become a successful authorpreneur.
So, are you ready to get started? Great! Enter your first name, your email address, click SUBMIT, and get ready to BUILD YOUR AUTHOR PLATFORM!
