Out Loud Academy: Self-Publish and Sell

Out Loud Academy: Self-Publish to Sell with instructor Cara Stein

I believe good books should sell. But in many cases, they don't. Most self-published books sell fewer than 100 copies—not 100 copies per month or per year, but 100 copies total in the entire lifetime of the book. On the other hand, my most recent client launched to #2 bestseller. Two months after his launch, he's sold 220 copies in the past 30 days and spent a lot of that time ranking in the top 5 for his best categories. What makes the difference? That's what I want to teach you. We all have books we'll remember forever: books that have touched us or changed our lives. Your book could have that impact on your readers… but only if people buy it. In this class, I'll show you exactly what makes a book sell. We'll talk about: - what makes a book a bestseller - how to launch your book for maximum impact - what keeps a book selling in the long term - how to make money as an author - how to build your fan base, so each book is easier to sell than the last. There are dozens of things you could do to market your book. We'll talk about the few that will actually get you results.
