Reflections after 2 Years as a Kindle Author

I just released the 2016 update of my book, Social Media Mastery, on Amazon Kindle. I released it initially at the end of 2013 as sort of an afterthought. I had no great goal in my life to write a book about social media. Little did I realize how in demand the topic was and as a result how the book would affect my finances. Some months are better than others, but overall…Amazon rocks.

Other things I’ve learned:

-You can’t go a day without social media platforms changing. Updating the book every year is not quite often enough, but it’s what I have time for.

-Amazon wants authors to stay on Amazon, and tries to incentivize it with extra goodies......

It's not a myth: there really is a Santa Claus when it comes to getting profits in your sleep. It's called a sales funnel.

If you're offering your products or services, but not getting buyers, you need to look at your sales funnel. In my free webinar, I'm going to reveal the secrets behind a successful sales funnel - that path you steer your customers on so that they can't wait to buy from you!

Your 10-minute plan to kick procrastination to the curb for good (and gain persistence to carry out your goals!)

Persistence despite obstacles

As an entrepreneur, author, digital consultant, college professor, mom, wife, photographer, friend, and daughter, I’ve usually got 3,857 different projects going on at the same time. Such a level of busy-ness is hardly productive. Getting things done despite obstacles is the definition of persistence. So how does one do it??

Most days I keep track of what I need to do with a calendar, email, text messages, and my clock on my phone. I do something, though, that has really helped me to punch through the wide variety of stuff that lands on my (virtual) desk.

10-Minute Moments

I call it 10-minute moments, or sometimes I refer to the process as “bursts”. Essentially, I tackle an item on my to-do list for at least 10 minutes – no interruptions, no phone, no social media. Of course, most things take more than 10 minutes, but I have found that 10 minutes without interruption means that I can accomplish a ton of stuff. And if I commit just 10 ten minutes every day, then I gain persistence. When I gain persistence, I am amazed at what I can accomplish.

4 Key Questions Not to Miss When Creating Your Online Course

Does my offer convert?

That’s the KEY question that you’ll need to answer as you create your online course. If you’re a coach or a consultant, you already know that your topic resonates with people…assuming you have clients.

With a digital product, you need to discover the top concerns, issues, questions, and more within your topic and create your products from there.

Don’t just guess, however. Ask. If you are in a Facebook group with people similar to your ideal client, ask them if your product idea is one they would purchase. If you have an email list, ask your email subscribers. If you run your own community online, ask your members. If possible, get members to prepay for the product. I did this with my QDP Creation course (QDP stands for Quick Digital Product) – I conducted a webinar, pre-sold the product, and got enough sales to justify the creation of the product. So I did! And it’s gone on to be my bestselling course.

Now you want to look at the most important person in the digital content creation process…your client.

Introduction
I am an author of the Daily Actions books on Amazon, a best selling series on social media, social networking, and productivity. To see my author page on Amazon, go to http://edjourneys.com/tararossbooks. I write about location independence and living a laptop lifestyle on my travel blog, edjourneys.com. I am a photographer by hobby rather than by trade, and I am a wife and a mom.

I am a former college administrator and current college professor. I have taught Political Science courses since 1999, in both face to face and online delivery formats. I am experienced in accreditation, development of new programs, and instructional design. With my PhD in Educational Leadership and my MA in International Affairs, my academic goals include continued work as a professor, work in international education, and pursuing my research interests in forced migration and refugee resettlement.
