Live Event: How to Sell Thousands of Books Using Your Blog with Yaro Starak

by | Aug 10, 2015

Last week I promised to “show you exactly how I got started in blogging, and who taught me how to turn my blog into several six-figure businesses,” so it’s time to deliver.

First, some recent highlights in my own journey: (there’s a reason for this, trust me):

  • 10,000 templates and growing—the site I started in 2013 with Tracy Atkins, BookDesignTemplates.com, began with 6 templates mostly for novels, and has since grown into a collection of 26 templates for Microsoft Word and 10 for Adobe InDesign. It’s now a multifaceted e-commerce site for authors with dozens of template styles and a growing catalog of great tools for authors. We recently passed the 10,000 templates-sold mark.
  • Publisher’s Weekly—I’m now a columnist for Publisher’s Weekly, the book industry’s biggest print publication. You can read my first article here: Top Five Book Design Mistakes.
  • Partnerships—Over this past year I’ve had the opportunity to partner with PR expert Joan Stewart, blogging and writing expert Nina Amir, platform building specialist Kim Grabas, author consultant Dan Blank, marketing guru Penny Sansevieri, and others, developing and bringing to market training programs and tools that are helping thousands of authors reach their publishing goals.
  • Strategic alliance with [unnamed giant in indie publishing]—I can’t break this news until later this week, but watch for an announcement on Wednesday of a strategic partnership that’s going to bring my solid book construction practices and innovative author tools to a whole new audience.

Am I bragging? Maybe a little bit.

But the point I’m trying to make is this: There’s simply no better vehicle for promoting your ideas, your work, your author platform, and your books, than a blog.

But you have to do it right.

Author Bloggers, Meet Internet Marketing

I started blogging late in 2009. Rather than stumble around trying to figure out how it all worked, I found a comprehensive training course to teach me the ropes.

And I studied hard. There were lots of lessons and activities to complete, and lots of audio and video lessons to work through. But I wanted to be a success.

It was lonely at the beginning, when nobody knew about my blog and visitors were few and far between.

But steadily followng the advice in this blogging course gradually started to turn my blog into the success it’s become today.

All of the opportunities I’ve encountered in the past few years

  • starting new businesses
  • developing products
  • learning about internet marketing
  • creating joint ventures with colleagues
  • establishing powerful revenue streams
  • getting approached by a traditional publisher
  • being invited to speak all over the country

have come directly from the blog I built on the foundation of that course.

[Free Webinar] Meet Yaro Starak, The Man Who Launched Thousands of Blogs

On Wednesday I’ll introduce you to Yaro Starak, the creator of that blogging course. Yaro will present a free webinar for you.

I’ve asked Yaro to apply his skills at teaching writers how to build a successful blog to indie authors.

And that’s exactly what he’s done.

This will be a unique presentation, and I’m sure you don’t want to miss it.

You know, my blog has given me a tremendous platform to spread my influence in the field of indie publishing, to send both my ideas and my own book designs out into the world in the most practical way, influencing hundreds of thousands of people.

Sometimes it gives me shivers just to think about it.

Yaro was the beginning of this journey for me, and I couldn’t be more pleased to offer this live event to introduce all of you to him and his ideas.

May you start a journey of your own.

    Is the webinar for fiction/memoirs or non-fiction? Imo, those are completely different animals.

      Selene, the webinar will be of most value to nonfiction authors, but I think everyone marketing online will learn a lot from Yaro’s proven methods.
