If you're an author of fiction or non-fiction, I'm going to take
a wild, completely inappropriate guess about where you are with
My guess is: you'd like to be able to reach a much wider audience
than you currently can.
How do I know this? Because this is the one thing nearly every
author tells me.
You know that you can expand your readership in the world, spread
your valuable message, and earn a lot more in your career, if you
could just "crack the code" of how to get readers eager to read
the story inside you.
This is going to sound arrogant, but I'm going to say it anyway,
because this is urgent. In a very short time, I have become a
highly experienced sales person and successful coach and trainer
- I've cracked the code and figured out how to be a bestselling
author. Beyond that, I've figured out the whole business model of
how to take your book and convert it into a bestseller, so that
the reach of your message--and your potential earnings--is no
longer limited by the hours in your already busy day.
If you don't know me already, my name is Beth Barany. I'm known
as "Beth, the Bestselling Editor" as I have been the editor for
two bestsellers. As an author, speaker, and columnist, I'm one of
the most successful and well-paid book coaches in the nation. And
having coached clients who are, themselves, coaches to
executives, I am a coach to the coaches.
However, until a year ago, I put most of my attention on creating
products instead of selling products. Last year, I decided to
learn what it takes to sell books with a simple, step-by-step
process. I wanted people's written works to have a wider reach
than just family and friends.
Now, using the skills I've developed (in most cases the “hard
way,”) I am getting my clients' books to hundreds more people
than they were ever able to reach before on their own.
In a moment, I'm going to share with you how you can get access
to learn how to become a bestselling author. But before I do
that, I have a few questions for you...
• Have you published a book, and had the thought, "My book
should have double the number of sales!" Have you ever asked
yourself, "I know my book is good -- how can I have more people
lining up to buy it from me?"
• Are you stuck with the same number of people who tend to buy
your book, or say they'll buy your book?
• Does the idea of increasing the number of people on your
mailing list, your author platform, scare you?
• Are you afraid that the work of building a loyal readership
may be too hard for you to do? Does it ever seem hopeless?
• Do you worry that your business may never grow beyond natural
word-of-mouth? That you'll basically remain anonymous beyond your
small group of family and friends?
If any of these questions were a "yes" for you, then you need to
attend this workshop on "How To Be A Bestselling Author"
October 23, 9am-6pm. Retail price: $497.
This workshop is specifically designed for you if:
• You are already published or are working on a book, but you
want to be a world-class bestselling author.
• You have a reasonable online presence -- such as Facebook,
Twitter, or LinkedIn - -and you want to go from spending your
time with online socializing to doing online social networking
and selling your books through your social networking. (It can be
• You want to build your audience by building your list in a
way you feel comfortable doing.
• You just *know* that you'd be living your true purpose if
your book sold to large audiences.
Marketing (and Selling) Your Book Can Be Fun!
You may think that marketing and selling your books is a scary
prospect, but actually marketing and selling is essential to your
career as an author. And if you uncover your style of marketing
and selling, then ultimately you will sell more books.
When my first book came out in Spring 2008, Overcome Writer’s
Block, I barely marketed it. When my second book came out July
2009, Writer’s Adventure Guide, I did the minimum and quickly
focused on other things, like earning a living. I was overwhelmed
by all my book marketing options, and chose actions at random.
Probably not the most effective.
Then, I attended a lecture by Patrick Swertdfeger, the author of
Webify Your Business 2.0, and learned about social networking. He
made the tools like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube.com
seem like so much fun. I realized something. That marketing my
books could be fun, if I did the things I liked. And what I liked
was using social networking. These tools capitalized on my
strengths: writing, connecting with others, and chatting.
So, I have a question for you. You know you need to get the word
out about your books. So, what is fun for you about marketing?
I can help you find it so that you may become a reluctant
marketer no more. This is what I'm proud to share with you in
"How To Be A Bestselling Author." Retail price: $497.
I'll be sharing with you some of my juiciest secrets that
day. It could be the most important day of your entire
career as an author. Think of how many more lives you could
impact -- and how much more deeply you could impact them -- if
you developed the best audience-building skills imaginable. You
may be depriving the world right now of your greatest gift,
simply because you haven't learned how to spread it as widely as
possible. There are only a few spots left in the Bestselling Author
Event, which will definitely sell out. But I wanted to make sure
you had the chance to hear about the Event before it fills up for
good. If you'd like to reserve your spot in this day-long hands-on
