Honestly, I am not even sure I did it right. I shall find out soon. So many of the experts know this works. Most of them use the funnel book and the magnet book to get the email lists. To be quite honest, I know I've read the email list trick many times, but I am still not sure what to do after I get tons of email addresses. On my children's book landing page, so far, I have three on my list. One of those email addresses is me; I was testing it to make sure it worked. I don't believe I am approaching that in the correct manner. I will have to continue rereading Nick's free book. As for the 30-day challenge, I learned more about Twitter and a few tips on Facebook that I was not aware of. It is supposed to be one day at a time but a few of the days were easy, so I didn't follow directions and compiled two days into one. I also had a Facebook account and that day I skipped.
I have stated in previous blogs that I published eight books since the beginning of June. Not a great strategy for a brand new writer, but I felt that it was my way of getting noticed. I think I should have spent more time letting them ferment. Let the books sit and let me look … Continue reading Growing Pains…Contemplating a Publisher’s ‘Self-Help’ Course
It is a rough feeling when you see you have more books than fans. I am pushing out two books a month, I am on my third month. Sure, I have a pen name for my children's books. That shouldn't matter (I think it does). As an author, I love to write more than market, … Continue reading Growing Pains…I am Growing as a Writer, My Fan Base is Not
As some of you know, I began this journey about two months ago (give or take a week). I struggled so much, I decided to complain about it on a blog. I was so frustrated I was blogging every day. I am beginning to see a lot of things fall in place, slowly. These little … Continue reading Growing Pains…Recognizing How Ignorant You WERE Is a Weird Feeling.
Okay, last night I didn't go to sleep until I finished the cover the way I wanted it. I think I did a pretty fantastic job. I went on to Amazon and what a surprise, it didn't work. Oh well, a few hours go by, and I tweaked it again to get it done. I … Continue reading Growing Pains…My Head is Spinning!
I just learned how to become an associate and affiliate of a few big named companies. Let me tell you, it sounded so simple. It took me about three hours (not including my internet interruption from the storm) to set it up, and I still could not get it right. I give up on the … Continue reading Growing Pains…Affiliates and Associates?
I was skeptical at first, but I gave it a shot. So far so good. I am learning some exciting tips and putting a few of them to (hopefully) good use. I will share some of what I have learned in the past two days. The speaker in my virtual seminar today discussed keywords for … Continue reading Growing Pains…Virtual Seminars
I tend to wake up in the middle of the night and have epiphanies. Oh my goodness...YES! My character should do this! Wow, that line would be PERFECT for my poem. I am in the midst of a children's book. I am attempting my own illustrations. Afterall, I should put my BA in FA to … Continue reading Growing Pains… Forgetting My Ideas
