How To Self-Publish Your Book Easily





If you are ready to self publish now check out Draft2Digital.

Whether you have written a book or if you are planning to write a book; it has never been easier to self-publish it. Even if you don't have a clue as to how to go about it. It can be easily accomplished.

The hard part is cranking out the pages of your book. If you decide to publish to Kindle, Nook, Apple or Kobo for instance, you will be able to keep your book in digital format. And of course, if you would like paperback or audio these options are available to you as well.

The good news is that you can use Microsoft Word software and simply change the format once the manuscript is complete. You will simply change it to plain text, xml, epub or one of the formats acceptable to the site you are publishing your book to.

If you have already published to a site such as Amazon, you can still publish to Draft2digital and use what is called a unique url that will be used to track all of the booksellers you are associated with. So, the process is very easy even if you have already published your book elsewhere. It is an opportunity to have your book sold on other reputable platforms.

There is a website called Fiverr where you can have a book cover designed for just $5. This site is very handy because there are all types of services offered at that price. If you happen to need artwork, photography, a logo or even an article written, it is $5 per service unless you go for upgrades.

There are other sites like Upwork and Freelancer that you can contract to do your design work as well. You can even have someone ghostwrite a book for you!

The following examples will show you how you can earn from your book from more than one place simultaneously. By publishing with Draft2Digital your book(s) will be sold by 8 or 9 booksellers immediately.

Following are two examples of the same book that I have self-published. The first example with Amazon is here Example One and the other is the book published with Draft2Digital  here Example Two.

I have been with both Draft2Digital  and Amazon since 2012 and have received book royalties (payments) from both sites. You can have your payments direct deposited to your bank account or have a check  mailed to you.

Why Hub Pages?





Hub Pages is an offshoot of Squidoo. Hub pages acquired Squidoo in 2014. Remember when you could create a lens and promote it on Squidoo? That was a while back and if you do remember that you have been promoting online for quite sometime.

Hub Pages is a platform that you can use to write and distribute and/or feature your articles. You are able to create as many hub pages as you would like. You will also gain links to your products or services simply by writing pertinent articles about your interests or about items you're promoting.

The site is interesting in that you can add images to your articles as well as earn money using your Google Adsense account once the article is published. You can create articles about any subject under the sun using your Hug Pages account.

Once you create your article and add Google Adsense to your hub page...it is completely passive and you don't have to do anything to maintain it and you will continuously earn money on that article year after year. It is a good way to increase your Google Adsense profits.

Here is an article that I found to be interesting about someone who has been using Hub Pages for a couple of years Hub Pages Article. This person gives interesting tips and how-to information about Hub Pages that is very helpful.

Here is another article that I wrote about why it is important to use article writing in your marketing endeavors. Its called  Make Money Writing Articles.

Between these two articles you should have a full understanding of the importance of article writing and you should also have a great starting point to work from.

Showing You The Money!


If you are not using Traffic Exchanges you're leaving tons of subscribers and wads of moolah on the table. This f.r-e*e report will show you how it is done. Grab it now before it's gone...Free TE Profits Report


The simple truth is that I have used traffic exchanges with a lot of success. I would even venture to say that out of all of the free traffic sources that are currently available online, this type of traffic is most effective.

Further, I can honestly say that I have received more sales by utilizing this type of traffic. The good news is that the majority of surfers on traffic exchanges are newbies who are looking for business opportunities.

The best feature of traffic exchange advertising is that the people surfing these sites are usually looking for business opportunities so they will be receptive to your offers. And, you may be receptive to theirs as well.

There are also some very business savvy, experienced marketers on the TE's who are taking advantage of this free traffic resource.

They recognize that there is a goldmine of traffic on these sites and they understand the potential and possible traffic that can be obtained.

Have you ever heard of Mike Filsaime? He is a very popular and well to do internet marketing guru that offers many internet marketing programs. He is also the owner of paydotcom.com.

His site offers affiliate programs that are being paid through PayPal. Anyway, this guy, Mike Filsaime started with traffic exchanges. Now he is a multi millionaire.


Surfing for traffic may seem rather mindless in the beginning because you have to sit and surf websites. But this type of advertising can and will produce sales and leads with your only investment being your time.

Don't make the mistake of being one of those people who stays away from traffic exchanges due to the mindless nature of surfing other websites.

If you are of this mindset, and you have children, you can pay them a weekly allowance to surf these sites for you. It only takes an hour a day or a few hours a week for you to obtain this free traffic from these sites.


Some experts believe that the banner and text ads convert extremely well on traffic exchanges. So, make sure that you take the time to advertise your banners from the programs that you are promoting and place some text ads as well.

Once you have your traffic exchanges set up you can use them year after year. You can purchase credits to increase your traffic quickly or you can simply surf for credits on the traffic exchanges until you have earned enough money to upgrade and buy traffic credits.

If you are really ambitious you can purchase and own a traffic exchange for a very minimal monthly fee. This gives you another opportunity to advertise your products and services to quite a bit of traffic because these services are very popular among internet marketers.

Before you begin surfing the TE's make sure that you have installed good virus protection. There are some free ones that you can install that will also protect you very well.

I am actually showing you the money and I will teach you how to be successful using the TE's. However, you will have to make up your mind to stop jumping from one program to another.

Just focus on building your referrals on the TE's. If you can do that you will be on your way to making money online in a matter of a very short time frame.

Simply start out free and stick with the program. Devote a couple of hours a day, and it will pay off in big dividends.This simple program will give you a marketing plan and direction.

It will teach you how to convert leads into sales for whatever your product or service happens to be. It has been around for a few years and I have been involved with it.

Therefore, I know that working this program will make money for you. My advice is that if you get tempted to work another program, stick with this one as well.

Just don't stop working this one and you will be successful in earning an online income. This f.r-e*e report will show you how it is done. Grab it now before it's gone...Free TE Profits Report



Understanding what surfers want is the key to turning your traffic into endless leads and c@sh for your business. Capture the attention of surfers and turn them into subscribers and paying customers.


PS. You can also re-brand the report with YOUR links and use the exact lead capture pages I use to build my list with traffic exchanges. You will be getting p@id to build your list with traffic exchanges!

Skyrocket Your Sales With Google +




With the advent of the new Panda and Penguin algorithm, Google has initiated and implemented new strategies that you will need to be aware of and of which you will need to incorporate into your marketing strategy in order to compete and have your website appear on Google.

The biggest problem appears to be that no one is really sure of what the new requirements are. Or of what the new algorithm covers. Of course, there have been SEO (Search Engine Optimization) guys that claim to know what the new algorithms consist of, but it appears that no one is absolutely certain as to what will be required to rank on Google as there are many factors that will affect rankings.

There was so much hoopla when the algorithm was changed that it prompted me to begin research on the topic and I began to study whatever I could find out about how to rank on Google using this new algorithm.

I am sure you have heard that there were many businesses that were completely annihilated when these changes took effect. So, it would behoove anyone who wants a presence on Google to listen up, pay attention and do whatever it takes to rank if you are planning to sell your products or services online; as this is where income is greatly affected.

I am no authority on the new algorithm, however, during my research on the topic I came across some information that I immediately incorporated into my marketing mix. Thankfully, and somewhat to my surprise, after about 30 days it is working well although I am still learning to navigate it.

The program that I added to my marketing mix is Google +. My intention was to try it to see what benefit I would derive from using this social media site. I have found that it works great and that I have ranked on the first page of Google for 20 different keywords. At this point I am at the drawing board trying to figure out which strategy to use to get more first page positions for my keywords!

The Google + site already has 100 million users and is growing rapidly. So, start using Google + right away as it stands to reason that Google will reward you for using their social media site!

You can have more than one Google + page. When I was creating my page somehow I ended up with two pages. Regardless of how many Google + pages you create, make sure to have their programmer link the pages to your website.
Their programmer will do this for you free of charge. When setting up your page you will get a pop- up asking if you want their programmer to link your pages. Make sure to do so.

Additionally, when completing your profile make sure that in the introduction area you leave a link to your website, blog, an article or to some of your contributions. Whatever link you place there will show up as a blue hyperlink.

After completing the introduction navigate to the bottom of the page where there is a section for other profiles. You can leave links to your FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Pinterest pages and more. Make sure to take advantage of the opportunity.

No matter what you do online as far as content, Google is now going to rate you by authorship or give you a social reputation rating. So, you cannot just throw some crappy content up on a bunch of sites and rank on the first pages of Google. Your content or authorship will be rated. This happens to bode well for anyone who is self-publishing on the Amazon kindle platform.

Keep in mind that when writing content of any type, Google will no longer accept articles that are stuffed with keywords where the article or website makes little to no sense because it is plagued with keyword phrases.

You will now be required to write your content as if you are speaking to your reader in plain English in words and phrases that make sense. If you use the concept of KISS (keep it simple stupid), you will be fine!

Google wants to be able to recognize who you are so you will want to go to Gravatars.com and put your picture there. Make sure to use this picture everywhere and on all of your social media sites including forums, message boards and the like, so that Google will be able to easily recognize you.

One of the best features on Google + is that you will be able to post images, articles, blog posts, videos and more. You will also be able to link to your websites and blogs and social media sites which will be included in search.

You will be able to place a link on your Google + page to your website or product which remains there and will serve as a great ad for your business. You can do this in your profile introduction as well as in a post.

If you have a WordPress blog or a device with a camera you can put a Google + button on your site and use it as an autoresponder. This way your message will automatically go to everyone in your circles.

If you have a laptop you can also start a 'hang out' which is like Skype and it will allow you to communicate with friends, family and business associates.

And, there is a new rating system much like Facebook 'likes.' These will be +1's on Google + and will be a part of Google's ratings on you and your social content.
Google will also rate you on where you place your articles.

You will not be penalized for using article directories if you use highly rated article directories like Ezine Articles, and if you get your link juice from sites like Hub Pages, and Squidoo.

Just make sure you are not using article directories that can be considered link farms. Be selective as to where you place your content.

From what I have seen so far, Google + is the place for the latest and greatest social media marketing platform. If you want to be listed on the first page of Google for your product or service use it.

Of course, it will require some trial and error on your part before you get it down to a science, but I can attest to the fact that it works!

Make sure that you use this platform extensively in 2013 as Google is a major player and influences the way the web operates and changes in a big way. And they determine whether or not you show up on their search results. I would say this is pretty much a no-brainer!

Answers To Your Questions


 

Dear Readers:
I just want to thank everyone who has left a comment on this blog. Your comments are both welcomed and appreciated and I read every one of them.

However, with this blog platform I cannot reply to your individual comments. I can only allow or delete your comments which is very inconvenient because there are cases where it would be most appropriate for me to reply to you.

Maybe sometime in the near future, this platform will allow their bloggers to reply to posts. The blog features were recently updated and I have wondered why this feature has been overlooked.
Therefore, if you have left a comment, please know that I am not intentionally ignoring your comments nor am I intentionally being rude by not replying.
To date, I have had many inquiries as to what blog platform I am using. In answer to that question, this is a Blogger blog.
At one time I had a wonderful WordPress blog that was very conducive to most anything I wanted to do on it. Of course, with WordPress.org you are allowed plug-ins of all sorts which makes blogging a pleasure.
Mainly because they allow you a ton of flexibility. However, after putting in years of work on that blog, it was hacked and I had to let it go.
Being hacked basically convinced me that I did not need to pay for a platform that could be hacked so easily. Secondly, I have had this Blogger blog much longer and have never had the problem of having to be worried about being hacked.
Ironically, this is a free blog platform in which you don't have to worry about being hacked and WordPress is a paid blog platform that I put so much work into all in vain.
So, go figure! Therefore, I vowed not to ever go with another WordPress blog. Although, there is so much you can do with WordPress that I am a little tempted to try again.
However, upon my next attempt I will put in place a new security feature that is now available that is supposed to prevent hacking.
Most of the other comments that I receive on this blog are comments that are thanking me for supplying this type of information on internet marketing. I am glad that I can be of help to someone out there who is trying to eke out a living online because it is no easy task when first starting out online.

I just want to mention that it is my pleasure to be able to assist someone with such a daunting task ahead of them. There have been many times when I have been so disgusted with my efforts that I literally considered giving up completely.

It appeared at times that nothing I tried would work. No matter what technique I implemented. Or sometimes, various strategies would work great and then the internet program that I was using would change in someway and my technique would no longer work. Or a certain company would be working for me and they would go out of business, and again I would find myself back at square one.

My point here is that you should never give up your dream, no matter how long it takes you to realize it. I took many years working part-time online for me to realize the success that I now enjoy.
The best advice that I can give you at this time is that if you want to cut to the chase and begin to realize a profit online, develop your own product. If you don't feel that you have the expertise to develop your own product, consider becoming an Amazon Kindle self published author.

Everyone has something that they are good at and you could put down your ideas in the form of a book and sell it on Amazon as a Kindle book for starters. The best thing about this is that you can market your Kindle book using free marketing techniques that actually work.

In the very near future, I will include an article on this blog about the great opportunity that is being offered by Amazon for self-published authors...so stay tuned and come back often for the latest trends and strategies in internet marketing online today.

As you know, things change very fast online. What was all the rage 6 months ago could be dead in the water 6 months later. Then there are trends that last for years. Amazon is here to stay and right now there is a ground floor opportunity available for you to take advantage of this online goldmine.

Free Marketing Techniques



Social media marketing is all the rage and everyone is participating which is a good thing. So, if you are not on the top four social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest...it is a good idea to become a member and to start social networking on these sites.

IBOsocial is a very interactive and responsive social network with lots of free tools that will help you advertise your site. This is a must have tool. It allows you to advertise your product or service to people who are interested in your offers. You create your profile and receive points which allow you to mail to their mailing list.

Additionally, this site also encourages you to post 2 free press releases a day on their site with their free press release tool. Your press release will be listed on Yahoo, Bing, Google and a few other sites. The best part about this network is that the users on this site are very receptive and responsive.

Moving up fast is Instagram which is a social media site that is used on your mobile device. It doesn't matter whether you have an android or iphone device. The service is very similar to Pinterest where you pin pictures of your favorite things.

However, Instagram can only be accessed through your mobile device. Once you sign up with Instagram via your mobile phone only, you will be able to put your product or service on the website via your cellphone. It is a huge and very busy up-and-coming advertising medium.

The great thing about Social networking is that it is here to stay and Google rewards you for participating on the social networking scene. Just make sure that you are commenting and participating as much as your time allows.

No doubt, you are already a member on Facebook so don't forget that Facebook has fan pages and groups that you can join and sponsor. Google will reward you by having your fan pages and group pages show up on their search engine. So at the very least, set up a fan page for your product or service.

Another free marketing resource is safelist advertising. This is where you join a number of safelists that have a certain amount of members that you are allowed to mail to on
scheduled time intervals.

It is a little time-consuming to set up because in order to make an impact you will need to be a member of quite a few safelists. You will be required to sign up for at least 30+ safelists in order for this type of advertising to be effective.

You will be required to use 2 email addresses. One email address will be your contact email and the other will be your list email address. Before you sign up for your safelist accounts you must have your email accounts set up first. I recommend using gmail accounts because you are going to receive a lot of email offers from your lists.

The good thing about safelist marketing is that once you set this up you will be able to use this system year after year. Safelist marketing is especially great if you are promoting a free product as the safelist members are very receptive to free offers.

Traffic exchanges are another free source of advertising. Although, it seems rather mindless to sit there and surf websites, this type of advertising can and will produce sales and leads with your only investment being your time.

The best feature of traffic exchange advertising is that the people surfing these sites are usually looking for business opportunities. Therefore, they will be receptive to your offers. And, you may be receptive to theirs as well. You might find a great opportunity!

As mentioned, often people shy away from traffic exchanges due to the mindless nature of surfing other websites. If you are of this mindset, and you have children, you can pay them a weekly allowance to surf these sites for you. It only takes an hour a day or a few hours a week for you to obtain this free traffic.

Some experts believe that the banner and text ads convert extremely well on traffic  exchanges. So, make sure that you take the time to advertise your banners from the programs that you are promoting and place some text ads as well.

Once you have your safelists and traffic exchanges set up you can use them year after year. You can purchase credits for both your safelists and your traffic exchanges or you can simply surf for credits on the traffic exchanges. If you run out of credits on your safelist you can purchase credits or simply delete that account and set up another.

If you are really ambitious you can own your own safelist or traffic exchange for a very minimal monthly fee. This gives you another opportunity to advertise your products and services to quite a bit of traffic because these services are very popular among internet marketers.

Press release traffic is emerging as a good source of free traffic as well, especially after the advent of the Panda and Penguin Algorithm. And, again, you are rewarded by Google for writing and submitting press releases. There are both free and paid press release services that you can submit to. Make sure that you do not over-look this wonderful free source of advertising.

As far as creating your list, it is usually required that you pay a monthly fee for some type of autoresponder service in order to collect email addresses. Therefore, make sure that you save the email addresses that are being sent to your email inbox. Save them in your contacts and build your email address list in that way until you are making money online and are able to afford the monthly fee for an autoresponder.

You will then be able to send your offers to your contact list, and/or use their email addresses to have them join your social media programs. This is a positive step towards building your list and you won't have the expense of an autoresponder service or the hassle of building a lead capture page.

The bottom line is that as an internet marketer or online business owner you will be required to either spend money on traffic or invest your time in free advertising sources. Some of the free traffic sources do require time to set them up, but it is either your investment of money or your investment of your time.

Of course, You will have to choose between which is most feasible for you, but an investment of your time is better than doing no advertising at all!
