Review of Power PublisherHello again :) Today, I’m going to look at the second week of Di Heuser’s “Power Publisher” course. This time, it’s about formatting your book for Createspace. (In a previous blog post I reviewed her first week, about Kindle formatting.)

Createspace is a print-on-demand service owned by Amazon, and even if you only plan to sell Kindle books, you should still make a print version available through Createspace.

  • It makes your book look more professional.
  • It will make your Kindle book seem less expensive.
  • You can now use the “match book” feature and let your clients save even more on a Kindle version.
  • It will increase your sales.

Any downsides? Nope, none that I see. Oh, yes, one… How do you format books for Createspace? I know that you can pay people to take care of this step, but that’s easily $40 per book. It all adds up… That’s what has helt me back… until now!

Because I just received Di’s second week course about publishing your book, and this week it’s about Createspace. Yay!

Power Publisher ReviewHi there :) Don’t we just live in a wonderful world filled with possibilities? Gone are the days where we needed to beg publishers to print out books. Today, we can take matters into our own hands and just do it!

We can publish for free on Kindle, Lulu, Createspace, Smashworlds, Lightning Source and even on iTunes… We have no limitations… but our own.

And I’m all for breaking them down as fast as possible.

One of the road blocks you could encounter, when it comes to publishing e-books, is the lack of knowledge about how to format the book properly.

If only the they all agreed to one standard, but no… You need one format for Kindle, another for Lulu, a third for Createspace, and so on.

As you probably know, I’ve published a few Kindle books and make monthly sales, and I plan to work more on this site on my business in the future. And I don’t want to limit myself to Kindle, but try all the other places as well. But what about formatting? This has so far kept me from publishing on Createspace, even though it’s a huge advantage to have a printed book next to my Kindle book.

Luckily, I can get started today, because I have a friend who’s doing an awesome course, called “Power Publisher”, and she teaches us all about how to get our books out there at the easiest possible way. Read on, to learn more.

Hi there :) Today, I was busy working, writing, washing clothes, unpacking boxes… and all of a sudden it was dark outside. So I decided to do today’s vlog challenge on my screen instead.

You might be glad I did, because I’m going to show you a forum, I’ve been frequenting ever since I heard about it the first time, which was in the beginning of last month.

It’s a very new forum and with a very new concept. You’ll find plenty of areas, each with a related expert. Alexa Smith is the expert in ClickBank and Article Marketing, Erica Stone is the expert in Amazon affiliate marketing, and you’ll find areas for copywriting, traffic, creativity, marketing, social marketing, authority sites, Kindle… There are PLENTY of areas, and you know what’s really cool? I’ll tell you…

When I joined the forum, somebody asked if we couldn’t get an area for Amazon affiliate marketing. I wrote that I found it a great idea, and if we could invite Erica Stone, it would be wonderful. A few days later, we had this new area, and Erica Stone had joined.

There’s another thing, and I forgot to mention that in the video (kick-myself-hard). That is the atmosphere on the forum. People are so nice! It’s just as if you’ve come home. That’s how I felt, and I read somebody else writing the same.

Here’s my video about this wonder-forum called Online Business Insiders, and a link where you can join for a very low monthly price.

Hi there :) You might be among those people who have told me that they wanted to learn more about Kindle publishing, and in that case you should read this review to find out whether this program is something for you, or you would be better off with another product.

I have published four non-fiction Kindle books so far, and they are selling. Not a lot of copies, but more and more. I think you have to get the ball rolling, and then it will gain speed – especially if you can make it roll downhill.

Anyway, let’s get started. I got review access to Ty Cohen’s “Kindle Cash Flow 2.0″, so I’m going to do what I promised: Write a review.

Set your sales on fire

If you’ve written a Kindle eBook, and you’ve done all the right things, like asking people for reviews (and gotten none), giving it away for free, promoted it through your blog, and you still have no sales, you’re probably tempted to give up and say:

This stuff doesn’t work!

Well, it does.

Find an eBook to promote

You can make a lot of money by having your own digital products to sell, but what if you’re just starting out? Or if you don’t have the time or knowledge to create your own eBook?

Then affiliate marketing is probably for you. You can buy eBooks on ClickBank or Warrior Forum and promote them to others.

Aye, again, there’s a minor pebble here… Some of the ClickBank products cost $97, and you might not have the budget for that. What to do then? Recommend something blindly and hope for the best?

NO!

Your reputation is at stake here. I’ve read marketers who are so fet up with the high ClickBank refund rates. I can’t say that I’ve experienced it myself, because I only recommend good, highquality products that can give the reader a lot of value. But if you pick a product that looks good from the sales page, you might get something bad, or just something that is not related to your audience.

What is the solution then? I’ll tell you what I just discovered.
