Step 1. The rest is history. In order to hit 1 on the bestseller list, your book has to deliver an amazing experience that 1, people will readily pay money for. Most authors do the total opposite. James, on the other hand, did it the smart way. She took a concept with enormous demand -- the Twilight series -- made it sexier, then gave it to the audience she knew would love it.
The approach I took was a little different, but the principle was still the same. It blew up. Over people signed up within 48 hours. Ding ding ding! The idea was validated, and I had proof that people wanted to download the book before I started making it.
And if there are a ton of people downloading one type of book Sexy vampires! Make sure the demand for your book is strong enough that people are willing to pay for it, before you start making it.
Emulation is just a smarter way of doing things. When you do that, you not only make them happier, you also dramatically increase your odds of succeeding as an author. Step 2. I write what amuses me. It's totally for myself. So to add to the previous tip write a book people want to download is to write the book that YOU want to read. But before you start writing your book and acting all author-y sitting at a typewriter, drinking scotch in a log cabin, etc.
In other words, you need to envision and conceptualize what the final product is going to look and feel like. Any longer than that and it starts to lose its memorability, though there are exceptions Men are from Mars Women are from Venus, How to Win Friends and Influence People. Come up with potential titles. Pick your three favorites. Does it reveal the main concept or type of experience my book has to offer?
Does the title express what type of reader will benefit from reading the book? Does the title provoke an impulse download?
Harry Potter and the…, The 4-Hour… Is the domain available? ME because. Think about it: If someone wants to give your book to their friend, what are they going to say? You think I have anxiety? He was right. The subtitle was simply a matter of tacking on who the book was for workaholics , and how the book could benefit them cure their anxiety. Your cover must be compelling, sophisticated, and so eye-grabbing that people want to click it and read the site description.
I wanted the coloring to fall somewhere between the movie posters for Field of Dreams and Big Fish -- two films that have always felt magical, nostalgic, and playful.
I decided to do a photoshoot so I could make a few cover mockups myself.
That way, I would be able to quickly see if my ideas were working or not. Here are some of my mockups: I handed the mockups over to my designer, who sent this back to me two hours later: No one understands the spirit and meaning of the book better than the person who wrote it. All authors should try to envision the exact cover they want and how it will look when listed on site , then sketch it out on paper or create a mockup in Photoshop.
Even if your designs are terrible drawings on a napkin, you can hire a great designer on Behance or Elance for a couple hundred bucks who can turn your ideas into something beautiful.
I took my back cover pretty damn seriously. I asked them the following questions: In your own words, describe what your anxiety feels like. How does it manifest itself? In what situations does it arise? What solutions have you tried in the past to manage your anxiety?
What's worked, and what didn't work? How did you feel before and after trying these solutions? What is the biggest obstacle that's preventing you from getting your anxiety under control?
What would it mean to you if you got your anxiety under control? How would things change? What would your life look like? Do you worry that something terrible is about to happen? Do you have trouble breathing, relaxing, and sleeping? Shallow breathing, tension in the gut, chest pains, rapid heartbeat Every moment is exhausting, crushing, and painful.
Anxiety destroys your confidence, your productivity, your relationships, and your ability to enjoy life. Fear no more. You can put an end to your suffering. You can start living again. I read your book in a single sitting. I'm so appreciative of your words because they validate what I've been feeling deep down all this time. After you have the title, cover, and description of your book mapped out, THEN you can start writing.
Step 3. Bake the marketing into your book Your aim is to create a marketable book. In order to do that, you -- the author -- should try to bake marketing elements into your book that facilitate word-of-mouth and ongoing sales. Here are a few examples: Capture leads. But how are you going to reach them unless you have their email address? You should find a way to collect their contact information at some point in the book.
Why not give them an offer in the sample chapter that sends them to a landing page which collects their email address? Case in point, from my book: Beta readers. Send them a PDF of your book. Have them read it in Preview Mac application and use the annotation feature to leave candid notes. Ask each of these readers to give you notes on the following: When they get bored, stop reading, and check Facebook, When they roll their eyes, Whey they want to share a quote or section with a friend, When they laugh, get excited, or feel hooked, Which sections they loved, and which ones they hated.
They are forcing you to make a great book, and catching all of the things that currently suck. You need beta readers to prevent you from releasing garbage.
Get to know your readers and form a deeper bond. Your beta readers. Chapters are blog posts. Think about how your writing can be packaged online and easily shared.
Readers love to put quotes on Twitter and Facebook. Equip them with little bites of wisdom from your book that they can easily share with their friends. Call-to-action to share, review, or download more. I have two main calls to action at the end of my book.
The word-of-mouth is baked in. This tactic has worked really well for Tim. For the release of The 4-Hour Chef, he did a promotion where he released a digital bundle on Bittorrent -- a site with million users -- which contained a section of 4HC, deleted chapters, and bonus video content. The 4HC promo is a unique case with exceptional results, but the principle can be used by any author -- give your book away for free to people who are going to talk about it.
My dream team consisted of: reddit. Once I had my list, I reached out to everyone, and gave them my book for free. I asked several dozen influencers if they wanted my book. You might think, "It's unfair! You know all the famous internet people!
Do you think I paid for those relationships? Of course not. With Tim, Tucker, and Ramit -- I reached out through email, offered to help them for free, and eventually became friends with them. I developed actual relationships with most of the people I met.
Some are just loose connections, but most are friends that I've had dinner and drinks and crazy experiences with many times over the years. I don't expect my friends to read the book, nor do I expect them to help me in any way. I just try to get them interested in my book by making a personal offer that's extremely difficult to refuse. Here's how I phrase my offer, depending on the strength of my relationship with that person: Email to: Loose Connection Hey [nice person that I like but don't know well]- My first book is coming out next month, and I'd love to send it your way.
Not asking for any favors, don't worry -- this is a free gift. I think you'll like it because I talk about managing anxiety and workaholism with play. Do you prefer Kindle or PDF?
See what I did there? Instead of asking if they wanted the book, I asked what format they preferred. The question assumes they've already said "yes" A or B? This is critical for busy people, who receive hundreds of emails a day.
It's short, sweet, and makes it easy for them to quickly respond "Kindle, please! The reason I'm emailing is because I'm an enormous fan of your writing, and I would love to give you a copy of my book. The article has already helped more than , anxiety sufferers rediscover the importance of play, and I'm hoping my book will help many more. Would you prefer Kindle or a PDF of my book?
Just let me know and I'll be happy to send it to you. The second paragraph makes it easy for them to respond to the email A or B? If that happens, it actually validates that your work is good no one pirates awful content. Think of it as free advertising.
