Well, I guess it’s not as though I’m just getting started, since I first published on Amazon a couple of years back!
But this week I would say is the first instance of me truly deciding to DO THE WORK of becoming a ‘wildly successful Amazon author’.
My goal, audacious as it may well sound, is to become a 7-figure Amazon Kindle author in the next 18 months. Mark my words!
I know I’m a good writer, I believe in my message, and I have a LOT to say! I must admit I find the idea of getting serious about self-publishing a little scary though. I guess it’s because if I do the work and the it DOESN’T work that might mean something. But that’s hardly a reason not to do the work 🙂
As I tell my online business clients all the time – get back to basics. Do what works. Do it now. Do it every day. Or in other words – press play!
So that’s what I’m doing. The challenge: 30 minutes a day, day in and day out, to build my book business. That’s in addition to the writing. I have no issues churning out enough writing! The challenge is to level up in terms of the quality of my publishing and marketing, which so far has been super lazy and just a matter of me emailing out about my books. Due to the fact that I have a big list online this has enabled me to easily hit #1 status, but it’s not allowed sustainable growth, and nor have I made more than maybe $700 in a single month so far; even from over 15 books!
So: game on.
Happy writing, and publishing!
Life is Now. Press Play.
