There is a lot of bullshit in the Amazon publishing, book marketing and author services and support space. Most of the online "gurus", online agencies and even the vanity press publishers are quite often making super self serving recommendations that are designed to do little more than "confuse and conquer" aspiring authors with vague, opaque and obsolete advice that ain't gonna move the needle much for anyone. (other than the folks who are profiting from selling you the services)
Our mission (MindfulMarketplace.com) is to empower 1 million new authors, teachers, and enlightened entrepreneurs to write books, tell stories and build brands that change the world. Yes, we do that by selling services as well. But, our primary channel for impacting our audience is through education - and sharing our own entrepreneurial adventures and experiences in the most transparent way possible. So here is a short list of 11 new ways to get published, get purpose and get paid in 2020.
(Note - for those of you reading this on my personal blog - you can download the whole list when you sign up on MindfulMarketplace below)
- Write more than one. (this may feel overwhelming if you're currently struggling to FINISH one....but it's actually quite liberating to be able to say "that idea, or that chapter is going in the NEXT book.....not this one!"
- Your book is the beginning. (the key to turning your book into a brand and your brand into a business and TRULY making the impact your words and wisdom deserve, is to think of your book as a bridge to the community, clients and contribution that your WORK in the world will bring once you get it out of your mind, and into the hearts and minds of those who need it's message most)
- Keep it short! Not only are short books easier to write, easier to finish (duh!) and easier to READ for your audience, it's also a super simple way to empower your audience by giving them a quick dopamanine dump associated with FINISHING something important (your book!) Suffice it to say - in a world where most of us start everything and finish very little, COMPLETION BIAS is real - and when folks finish your book they'll feel that surge of feel good chemicals in their bodies and brains and feel the love for you!
- Use a template (And here are 4 that work) Templates aren't evil. They won't screw up your creativity. They don't make you "less" of an author, or less of an artist. What they do is give you STRUCTURE. (and speed) There is a reason why screenwriters and storytellers use storyboards and other organizational aids. They work! And if you're an inspirational author, teacher, healer, leader, blogging bodhisattva or enlightened entrepreneur, the truth is, some of the most impactful books you can write can literally be done in a "fill in the blanks" sort of way. (without losing an ounce of inspiration or import to your audience)
