 Create an Amazon Bestseller Campaign
for Your
eBook Online Course in 4 weeks!

There are 23 steps in your journey … a journey where you could pay someone to travel and implement for you … or one where you can roll up your sleeves and learn how to create, implement, and execute. As in DIY.

The Create an Amazon Bestseller Campaign for Your eBook Online course is the later. I will take you through each step during the four weeks. When you complete #17, you are ready to execute.

My goal is for you to have all components for your campaign DONE before your implementation/execution day. All social media tease pushouts done and scheduled before the big day starts.

Requirements;

  1. Two hours of your time online each week via Zoom with Judith Briles. Late Monday afternoon will be our start time.
  2. Social media presence. Thousands would be good but not crucial. You will learn tips and tricks during each session that will have new adds every week.
  3. An “I want to be #1 and I can do this attitude” and commitment to do the work during each session and post-work each work.
  4. A computer. A free account on either Canva and BookBrush.

Press Release Power, and The Ins and Outs of Producing Children’s Books
Feb 6 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Part I     PRESS RELEASE POWER …

You want your press releases to work for you. Tips and Tactics galore on the first Saturday in February via Michell Davis and ExpertClick.com.

  1. Push technology for your news releases — pushing your news out ten ways including Google News. Plus, blog syndication to pull your posts and push syndicate. — PR Week called us: “dating service of PR.”
  2. Use of an Internet Press Room designed for SEO with inbound links from tens of thousands of other member’s press rooms and news releases – driving inbound links to your website. — USA Today called our website: “A Hot Site.”
  3.  Be in the 35th annual Yearbook of Experts, Authorities & Spokespersons. — The New York Times called it: “Dial-an-Expert.”

Part II          THE INS AND OUTS OF PRODUCING CHILDREN’S BOOKS

Award-winning book designer Nick Zelinger tackles the challenging task of how to create a children’s book you can be proud of — and sell by the boatload!

In the Art of Children’s Books, he will set the stage for:

  • What to look for in an illustrator.
  • Setting guidelines for you and your artist.
  • The most common mistakes authors make and how to avoid them.
  • Identifying pitfalls to avoid — saving you time, money, and aggravation.
  • How to determine size, fonts, and printer.
  • The challenges and limitations of printing in color.
  • And much more.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as a children’s author, there are lots of takeaways in this session including why adults should be reading children’s books for their own writing. Nick Zelinger of NZ Graphics is a multiple award-winning book designer with over 30 years’ experience in graphic design, print media, and publishing.

He and his clients have garnered more than 150 national and international book awards. Nick’s dedication to detail, his commitment to deadlines, and his fervent belief that being a team player is essential for success in the publishing world, have kept his clients coming back.

And … he’s loved reading children’s books since he was a kid … and still does.

Join us for this two-part event!

 WHEN:  Saturday, Feb. 6 at 9:00am to 11.30 MT

WHERE: your electronic devices … this is online and everywhere. A link will be sent to you via email along with the password to join the meeting a few days prior.
