Today, I spent a few minutes on Facebook, and I actually found an interesting thread in one of my favorite groups.
It was about selling books – lots of books.
While it used to be enough to do free promotions, most of the people in that group agreed that today you had to do a little more.
Others were struggling with Facebook ads – some had found a way to sell books that way while others hadn’t.
And one of the members revealed how she’d sold lots of copies with a combination of three things.
Had I not just read this book, I wouldn’t have understood what she meant, though.
But those two pieces of information in combination told me that I should let you know about this, too.
Learn about inspiration, self-image and more…
You might think it has nothing to do with Internet marketing, but it has EVERYTHING to do with it.
One of the best books, and a must-read, when it comes to learning how to write copy, is [amazon text=Influence&chan=default&asin=B002BD2UUC]
by Robert B. Cialdini.
You can check it out and order it from Amazon. It’s a great read, and you’ll learn so much about the psychology behind the decisions people take.
Nothing here to see. I’m only testing a new plugin.

Hi there How’s your day been?
Mine has been good, well, mostly. Because I’ve had three major issues that really sucked! Especially because they are annoying and take time. I had eight things on my to-do-list for today, and so far (it’s 10:30 PM), I’ve only finished one of them. And then that one is touched by issue one below.
1: I got banned on the Forum Special Offers forum.
2: A reader bought an affiliate product through my link and didn’t get a login. Site owner unreachable (big name I trust).
3: Payoneer only accept private payments up to $300 per months, so we had payments denied.
Right, let me tell you more about what happend.
We continue with the miracles 😀 Tonight, it’s the second night of Hanukkah (there are 8 in total, in case you’re wondering). And you get the change AGAIN to win one of my awesome money-making products for free!

We live close to the sea you can see in this picture that I took last year in July.
Some people will use the simple money making ideas they find, just because they are simple and easy to use, but without looking at the ethical site of the business.
If you have ever considered or tried running an online business you probably faced the dilemma of running this business with dignity or not. The Internet is full of get-rich-quick schemes or business ideas that just make you feel dirty when you even hear about them.
So how do you make money online without feeling dirty?
I just read a blog post about that on Balance In Me. I especially loved the introduction, because that was my dream, too. I’ve almost arrived there, in fact. I just need to move a tiny bit closer to the waves. Oh, and by the way, if you dream of sitting outside, working on your laptop, get a MacBook Pro. It’s the only laptop I’ve used that you can actually use outside.
“That was a very precise demand, the beggar over there had“, said my husband, as we were walking home from the little Arabic supermarket in our local area in Haifa.
“What?” As usual, I’d heard nothing. My father had very bad hearing, and I think I’d inherited it. To him, it was probably a blessing, since my mother was very talkative.
“He asked for 4 shekel”, my husband continued. Luckily, he’s used to being my ears.
“Oh, that’s great”, I answered. “He’ll probably make a lot of money that way.”
Are you branding yourself?
Let’s face it: People buy from people they like, so it’s important to brand yourself so that people will remember your name.
In Denmark, most people know my name, both because of the more than 30 books I got published there, and also for being one of the first to live from online income. I’ve been in Danish television and radio, while I lived in France.
However, my husband thinks I’m too shy and modest when it comes to telling about myself, especially to English speaking people who doesn’t know me that well. He decided to make an interview (watch it after the jump), which is one of the ways you can brand yourself.
Get somebody to ask you some questions and catch you on film, and put it online.
Make your name stand out in some what. If you have a common name, you can add a nick-name to make it different. Get a logo (we have the fox). Show your pretty face on your blog. Let people hear your voice.
What else can you do? Well, I’ll know more about that later, because I joined Tiffany Dow’s challenge, so I’ll start branding myself in October. For now, I leave it to my husband to brand my name 😀
This is a non-video post. This is definitely a non-keyword post. This is a “direct from the heart” post.
Tiffany Dow, who I absolutely adore, wrote a blog post tonight, which inspired me to this post. It’s all about hugs, love, list building, angels and more.
