How to Make Money With Digital Products – Daniel Hall
Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster interview Daniel Hall

Daniel Hall is just like you. Until he accidentally learned about cruise ship enrichment programs he had no idea that you could cruise free by giving onboard presentations or leading activities.

Fortunately, he learned the secrets of being approved by the cruise lines to cruise free. In fact, he was taking so many free cruises that friends and colleagues began to ask how he was able to do it. Because he was spending so much time explaining the process he finally decided to write it down. Eventually, that effort would become the critically acclaimed program “Speak on Cruise Ships”

In addition to cruise speaking, Daniel has a wide array of interests, talents, and achievements. For example, he holds degrees and licenses in both law and nursing, having graduated from Texas Tech University, School of Law and the University of Texas at El Paso, College of Nursing.

Top Book Marketing Budget Tips! How To Get The Most Bang For Your Book Marketing Buck!

Top Book Marketing Budget Tips! How To Get The Most Bang For Your Book Marketing Buck!

“They” say, “you’ve got to spend money to make money,” which is true in book marketing as well. Spending money where it will make the biggest impact on your bottom line though is the key though.

Here are a few guidelines to remember in spending your book marketing budget:

The key is to spend money to make yourself look professional upfront so you don’t have to spend money later fixing your image.

Save up until you can make it a top quality product before you even get it out the door.

Here are three great tips!

1- Cover Design

Even though people say “Don’t’ judge a book by its cover” that’s terrible advice when it comes to publishing books!

Considering the way people browse books online today, no matter great your masterpiece is, we recommend spending the money to have a professional, cover design created.

2-Editing

There’s nothing wrong with using a friend, family member or writers group to give your books a look before you publish.

However, we recommend hiring a professional editor to give your book a thorough scrubbing!

This can be costly — don’t be surprised to get quotes for more than $1,000 — but an experienced, reputable editor can make or break a run fun bestseller status.

One of the best ways to locate an editor is to check the credits of books that you’ve enjoyed to see who your favorite writers turn to for editing

3- Website Optimization

A website is one of the first impressions of your brand and a cornerstone of your author platform. Therefore, if it doesn’t look good and help you build your fan base, it can actually hurt your business.

Spend as much money as is affordable to make it look great and ensure that it provides your fans with an easy way to connect and leaves them with a great experience. If possible, hire an experienced SEO writer to create copy that drives traffic to your site.

Make sure the lead capture tool is easy to use and prominent!

Lastly, make sure your site mobile friendly!

How to Autograph Books: Book Signing Tips for New Authors

How to Autograph Books: Book Signing Tips for New Authors

original post here: http://authoritypublishing.com/book-marketing/how-to-autograph-books/

Recently a new author asked me how she should handle autographing her books. It took me back to when I had published my first book, remembering how awkward it felt to sign copies. I also thought about my first business—a bookstore—where we flipped through used books in search of autographs (the equivalent of a literary jackpot!). Some were short and sweet with just a name, while others had more personal inscriptions.

Here are some simple tips to help you prepare to autograph your books!

1. Decide where to sign.

I like to sign my books on the title page, which is where most books are autographed, though you can also sign the inside cover. In some cases, you may want to sign the front cover, though this is rare and would probably only be appropriate for a coffee table book or something that will be on display.

2. Personalize your message.

In most cases people want the book inscribed to them personally, though sometimes it’s intended as a gift so be sure to ask, “Should I sign this to you?” Use their first name and always ask for the spellingsince even common names can have unusual spellings.

If you have time, try to personalize your message in some way: “It was great meeting you at the XYZ conference” or “I enjoyed learning about your business…”

3. Choose a signature phrase.

Ideally you should have one to three phrases that you write each time you sign a book so you don’t have to think too hard! Your message can also be memorable and should fit within the space allotted.

When I’m not pressed for time, I sign my books: “Wishing you abundant joy and success.” If a line of people are waiting I simply write “Best wishes.” Here are some others:

All my best

Thanks

In gratitude

To your health

Much appreciation

Warm wishes

Best regards

Onward

Your friend

Etc…

4. Make sure your name is legible.

Consider the fact that someday your book could be a collector’s item! Even if it isn’t, do you want to leave any doubt that you’re the one who signed it? If needed, practice writing your name so that it is at least partially legible. You should also sign first and last name unless your name is Madonna or Cher.

5. Add a date (optional).

Admitedly I usually omit the date—mostly because I can never remember what day it is! But recipients will appreciate it when you date your inscription.

6. Use a good pen.

I’ll never forget the day I was signing books and the only pen I had on me was one of those cheap stick pens I picked up from a hotel room. Though it got the job done, I didn’t feel like it demonstrated how serious I am about my work.

For those of you who autograph the cover or inside cover, a good Sharpie will probably be your best choice. For everyone else, do yourself a favor and invest in a nice pen. It doesn’t matter if the ink is blue or black, if the barrel is thick or thin, just choose something that you love and that makes you feel like an author! (Oh, and make sure the ink dries quickly!)
