3 Tips to Solve Obstacles that Hold Back Your eBook Profits

What! Spend just as much time on marketing as writing? This can't be, you
say. Yes, it's true.

So if you're writing a book, finish the one book before you move on to book
#2.  If you don't, it's really a form of procrastination.

So if it's time to market your book (and it is time half way through your
book) create a marketing and book's promotion platform. To really be
successful with large profits from your book, you must finish #1 project
before you move on to #2.

Many emerging authors and business people don't pay attention to marketing
or promoting themselves and put their attention on multiple projects such
as writing other books, articles, and reports, rather than finish and
publish and get the book on their site to sell.

While doing these multiple projects looks like productivity, but it's not
effective productivity. Because you are not focusing on what you don't need
to do NOW. What's the highest pay off project to do NOW to get to your
business goals? (maybe you don't have a marketing plan in action yet--you
need to).

Because you can't sell more books by writing more books, only by marketing
the ones you have now.  Marketing may be your next step. It should happen
long before your book is finished, but many new writers don't know why this
is so important.

Take it from an author who has published successfully 13 books on book
writing, marketing and social media marketing. And coached 1000's of others
like yourself who wanted to do the next right move (the move to get to the
finish line-profits).

Do you resist online marketing?

Do you know why you resist?

It's probably some kind of fear of exposing yourself as a not quite
professional in some way. Procrastination is one form of fear. Fear of not
being a good enough writer is one fact I got in a survey to my writing
groups. Fear of not standing out in the marketplace is another. Fear of not
wanting to because of money, short cut time and mistakes that could cost
you more than a little coaching.

What you Resists, Persists!

You who resist must know that the marketing message will persist and keep
biting you in the backside if you don't finally bite the bullet and take
some small action. One step at a time.

From one Linkedin member of my group:
'"If I had paid attention to successful authors advice who advised me to
market much more than I thought,  I'd have sold a lot sooner."

So here's 3 Solutions for the Brave and Bold:

1. Take stock of your strengths, expertise, weaknesses, and fears. Do what
you do best, and hire the rest!

Investing in training and delegation of small stuff will move you forward
like the gurus do. When I created my 13 books' and coaching sales letters,
I hired a webmaster who knew HTML, and marketing too. Once up, and with my
own ability to market with my blog and article marketing, we raised sales
to match.

2. Believe and trust in your book project. If it's good then it's worthy of
more marketing. If it's not, drop it and learn how to build a business
foundation before you leap, so you will get that desired income. Get some
bookcoaching to find proper clarity and a profitable focus for yourself.

3. Schedule 3 High Level Activities (HLA) daily in your organizer. They
must be specific and measurable, so no cheating with general things like
"Write on my book" What book? What chapter title? Smile. I use Hootsuite to
send out 2 messages each day that show up at my Facebook Fan Page, and my
Linkedin profile page, so this has grown my web's visitor numbers by 57% in
just 4 months.

These tips could go on. In fact they do!
