Want to Become an Amazon Best-Selling Author?

agold-author One of my goals in 2013 was to become an Amazon author and publish a book on Kindle.  Well, it’s now Dec. 2013, and that dream is unfulfilled.  Best laid plans, as they say…:)

That’s why I am writing today.  Many hands make light work, so goes the saying, so I’m writing to see if you’d like to help me out in this venture.

I’d like to put together a compilation Kindle publication called Biz Smart Visibility:  Online Business Owners Share 10 Proven Strategies For Getting Your Business Found Online.

Normally in an effort like this, the participants are asked to pay to participate to cover the publication costs.  However, I’m willing to do this at NO CHARGE for the participants – I’ll take care of all formatting and graphic costs and uploading to Kindle.  And, Ill provide you with an Amazon Best Seller banner you can use on your promotional materials and web site, since, as one of the contributors in this book, you’ll be listed as one of the authors and earn that best-selling status rank.

In addition to being published on Kindle, I’m also doing this as a sample of my work so that I can offer this as a premium service to clients in 2014.

What kind of difference would adding “Amazon Best-Selling Author” to your bio make?  More speaking gigs?  More sales?  More authority in your field?

I’m seeking 9 experts who’ve found success in online visibility using one of the following methods:

  • Video
  • Email marketing
  • Webinars
  • Joint ventures
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • Social bookmarking
  • Press releases
  • Podcasting
  • Blogging
  • SEO
  • Copywriting
  • Kindle Publishing
  • Another topic not listed here

I’m writing about content syndication/article marketing, so that one’s taken. 🙂 You don’t have to be a business coach or a marketing expert.  I’m just seeking online business owners who have been successful in using one of the strategies noted above to massively increase your online visibility. To participate, here are the guidelines:

  1. Provide an article in tips format of 1200-1500 words with 5-10 tips.
  2. Article may not have been previously published anywhere online or offline.
  3. You must own the copyright and it must be your own creation—no PLR articles, please.  You may use a ghostwriter, but the content must be unique and not found elsewhere online or offline.  You can also significantly tweak an existing article, but it must be so unique that it will not be cited as a duplicate when a Copyscape test is done.
  4. Provide a photo and a bio and a call to action for the end of your article.
  5. Open an Amazon author account after the book is published.
  6. Be willing to send an email to friends, family, email list, social media etc. asking them to purchase this ebook at particular date and time for 99 cents.  This is important – this is the only way this program will work to hit bestseller status is to have all the purchases of the book occur at a certain day and time.  Amazon changes its best-selling status hourly, so the key to making the best-seller list is in the timing, not in the number of books sold.
  7. If you don’t yet have one, you’ll want to get an Amazon Associates account so that you can earn Amazon commissions in your promotional efforts.
  8. Provide a testimonial that I can share on my web site sharing how the process went for you and any results you received.
  9. Provide a writing sample so that I can see how you write.

Interested?  I’ll be screening on a first come, first served basis based on ability to write and topic chosen.
