How to Turn Complete Strangers Into Paying Customers with an e-Book.

The E-Book Marketplace Phenomena is truly the Average Persons businesswinning ticket to a Famous Persons Pot of Gold!  E-books have now created the opportunity for those with very little former Celebrity Status to capitalize on the wealth of the world.

Let me start off by telling you a true story;

My mind races back to 1970 when I was just a kid and would love to watch the Walton’s on T.V.  Perhaps my favorite character was John-Boy because I could identify with him wanting to be a writer.  Since the age of 12 years old I knew that I wanted to be a writer.  When I read an ad in a comic book; How to Become a Writer, I rustled some money from my folks and sent for the home course.

I can still remember the day I got the package in the mail, my heart raced with excitement and my mind zoomed with adventure.  It was a brown soft bound book and when I started to read it, I remember thinking; I don’t have a clue what this book is saying.  But it did not matter to me; just having that book gave me hope and inspiration!

It allowed me to feed my dream of someday becoming a published author, to have the ability to paint on the canvas of paper the words, thoughts, dreams and visions that would flood my mind on a daily basis.

That little brown unattractive home study course on how to become a writer fueled my passion to share my thoughts and words with the world.  It did not matter that I did not understand one word that course said, it was my point of contact to dream, and dream big!

Finding Your PassionLike me, many of you have a gift, and burning desire to write and share you message with the world.  And for the past 100 years many have went to their grave with their books still inside them because the publishing industry did not provide a general platform for them.  How many great books and stories get buried and never make it into the marketplace because of a lack of a publishing platform?

That has now all changed due to the E-Book Phenomena, E-Book Readers and the new market that is now demanding E-Books!  Here are some very interesting facts for you to hang on too:

  1. Authors who publish their books via E-book format are now being recognized as legitimate published authors by the marketplace, which is the most important audience to have credibility with because they are the ones buying your books. 
  1. In the printed world of publishing you became a recognized author if you have one book in the marketplace: but in the current trend of the E-Book Phenomena the market place is looking for Quantity of books from a single author.  If you are going to make your mark and grab your share of riches from the E-Book market you will have to have MEB; multiple E-Books on the market. 
  1. The new E-Book market demand has many opportunities; however it has very precise rules in order to win in this game.  You need certain insights, networks, and tools.  It is like going to a lake jammed filled with fish, but if you go to the lake without a fishing pole, bait and proper equipment, you will go home empty-handed and an empty stomach.  The lake can be completely filled with fish, but they are not going to jump out and into your pocket.  The same is true with winning in the E-Book Phenomena. 
  1. Because the wall of publishing has been broken down, there will be an infinity of new E-books and E-book authors hit the marketplace within the next 12-24 months. Talk about a stampede!  This does create a Serious Problem; Market Overload, and giving the marketplace an infinity of choices.  You think there are a lot of titles on the market now you have not seen anything yet.  Ok, the problem now becomes, how do you not get lost in this over load of available book selection?  What will cause the marketplace to choose and buy your book over the other millions of choices that will soon becoming their way?  I will give you the Secret on point 5. 
  1. Establish yourself right now while the marketplace for E-books is in its infancy, before the market gets flooded.  You have a chance right now to create your name and brand as a marketplace giant.  Your name can be the next McDonald’s among millions of hamburger joints, the next Disneyland among the countless unknown theme parks, the Kleenex among tissues.  Here Me Now; This can only be done if you act Now, before the stampede of E-books start to flood the marketplace.  If you start right now, invest in this industry today, you will rise high and be remembered by the marketplace as a Name Brand in the E-book trend.  When the marketplace gets saturated with E-Books, those entering the market will get lost in the massive crowd of E-books, but you will be remembered and will have the magnetic attraction with the consumers. Why?  You established yourself early, while the marketplace was in its infancy.  You established marketplace attachment and your reward will be a financial fortune indeed! 
  1. The very best way to start your cycle of wealth and branding in the E-Book Marketplace is through association with Best Selling Authors that are already established in the printed publishing world.  The reason; The marketplace has always asked this question, but it has intensified with the new E-Book market and that question is; Who Are You?  What you have to understand; (wow this is gold, I should be charging a king’s ransom for this information, and I really am not sure how much longer I am going to be giving this information away for free)  

What you have to understand is that the E-Book market is brand new and in a hot wild frenzy and they are blind.  Therefore, they are gravitating groupbookstowards people and names they recognize.  Best Selling Authors and Leaders are like a gigantic magnetic force that this new market is following and clinging onto.  If you are in association with them, your boat will be filled with riches too as the marketplace buyers gravitate and cling to them.  I hit upon this concept of aligning oneself with Industry leaders and Bestselling authors back in 2005 when I launched the Power of Mentorship book series, that by the way now has 24 titles and more than 200,000 copies in the marketplace worldwide (sorry for the plug).

This concept of working with established names was the driving force of the success of our book series, and that was done when the marketplace was calm and mild and no intense, insane demand for books like there is now for E-Books.  There was no market demand frenzy then.  The need for association right now is Imperative if you are going to cash in on this E-Book Phenomena, Brand yourself and make your mark before the market is saturated.  Here is the truth;  New Markets that change society and how we function in our personal and business life is so Rare, and unusual only about 1 percent of all people profit from it because the average and masses of people just cannot see it or conceptualize it.  It is way too big for them to even comprehend the enormity of this opportunity.

Here are some examples of Life Changing Opportunities that have passed to profit from for the average person:

  1. Home Computers
  2. Cell Phones
  3. Search Engines
  4. Internet Technology 

These are products that are less than 25 years old!  Yet when the market first developed for these items, the average person could not even comprehend the possible business opportunity they offered.  The E-Book Phenomena and Marketplace will be the exact same way.  When the average person sees the opportunity and jumps in, all the prime spots that create fortunes will be gone and they will be left to fight for the crumbs with the masses.

  1. Being in association with recognized names creates another problem.  They are now harder than ever to attain.  From advanced years to illness to the passing of legends the opportunity window to link with industry leaders is rapidly growing smaller and smaller.  Getting a testimonial for a book or a project from recognized leaders has always been a challenge, but was doable with persistence and the right connections.  Try going after one today, they are getting rarer by the hour.

As you can see, we are only hitting the tip of the Ice Burg on this E-Book Phenomena that will create more millionaires and lasting fortunes since the dot-com boom, which by the way is gone for good.  That was a temporary trend with a limited market opportunity that only those with keen eyesight seen and took advantage of.

There is a ton of information on this new awakened E-Book giant marketplace that has a bottom-less appetite for E-Books.  This is a giant that is, and will be creating future fortunes and new millionaires in 2013 and beyond.  Will you be one of them?

Changing Lives Through the Power Of The Pen

Dr. Martin Luther King proclaimed “I have a dream”. This is the mantra of every published, self published and unpublished author.  The dream lives with them 24 hours a day because inside their heart is the burning desire to “change lives through the power of the pen”. 

Let me start off by telling you a true story… 

My mind races back to the early 70’s when I was just a child and would love to watch the Walton’s on T.V.  Perhaps my favorite character was John-Boy because I could identify with him wanting to be a writer.  Since the age of 12 years old I knew that I wanted to be a writer.  When I read an ad in a comic book, “How to Become a Writer” I rustled some money from my folks and sent for the home course.

I can still remember the day I got the package in the mail, my heart raced with excitement and my mind zoomed with adventure.  It was a brown soft bound book and when I started to read it, I remembered thinking, “I don’t have a clue what this book is saying.”  But it did not matter to me; just having that book gave me hope and inspiration!

It allowed me to feed my dream of someday becoming a published author, to have the ability to paint on the canvas of paper the words, thoughts, dreams and visions that would flood my mind on a daily basis.

That little brown unattractive home study course on how to become a writer fueled my passion to share my thoughts and words with the world.  It did not matter that I did not understand one word that course said, it was my point of contact to dream, and dream big!

I share that story with you because there are many reasons why people have a dream to write a book; however this is what I have learned,

Millions of people want to write a book.

Most have the ability, some have the drive but few have the know how.” 

Finding Your PassionHaving a dream to become a published author is a wonderful and powerful element.  Did my youthful dream of becoming a published author ever come true?  Many people have wondered about that.  Well, 33 years after I got that home study course in the mail I have had the good pleasure to have published 19 books and create the best selling The Power of Mentorship book series that now have over 200,000 printed copies in the marketplace worldwide.

Yes dreams are important and yes they do come true, but not by themselves.  You see, many people have dreams, but not every one has wings.  Dreams without wings stay grounded.

“Will my passion support me? If your passion has a plan, your plan will support your passion”

How do we put wings to our dreams?  By good old hard work; my good friend and best selling author Brian Tracy says it best; “Success is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent hard work”.

Did we say hard work?  Let’s make it clear that hard work is smart work, knowing what to do and how to do it to create the results you want.

“Working hard on things that don’t work, don’t

make them work”

If you have a dream of becoming a published author (or any dream for that matter) or if you are an author and want to sell more books, here are 5 important points to help you take that dream from your heart and turn it into reality.

1.        Find A Mentor.  Finding a mentor that can teach you how to get what you want is not only invaluable but a necessary ingredient to achieve your goal and dream.  It will save you years off the learning curve and save you thousands of dollars of costly mistakes.  When I went to my first mentor to teach me how to do a book series he asked me; “do you want to do this as a hobby or a business?  I responded I do not know?  He looked at me and said get out of my office; if you are not going to treat this like a business you have no business doing it!  That was the key advice that allowed me to create our highly successful book series.

Another book mentor of mine was the late Charlie Tremendous Jones.  I remember when we came out with our second Power of Mentorship book I put on the cover volume two.  I had already approved the cover, and the cover was done.  Charlie told me; get the word volume off that cover.  I said “why Charlie, it looks so good?”  He said if you keep it there it will hinder your sales.  Charlie had been in the book business for over 40 years and his mentorship proved once again to be invaluable.

2.        Get into an anthology. One the best ways to start your publishing career as well as boost an existing one and sell more books (if you currently have one) is to become published in an anthology.  An anthology is book that is composed of contributing authors or what I like to refer as “co-authors”. 

There are a number of anthology books on the market today that will give you the opportunity to be part of the book; however the best ones to be involved with are those who have best selling authors that are part of the contributing authors.

The keys to writing success is positioning yourself as an expert, establishing your credibility, massive exposure, and developing your brand.  Anthologies help you do exactly that especially those that have best selling authors that are part of that group.

3.        Keep your writing dreams alive.  If you have a dream to become a published author, you and you alone will have to be the “keeper of the flame”.  It will be up to you to stay excited, fuel your passion and fan the flame.  Your mentor can give you the plan; you however must supply the drive.  How strong is your desire to write?  How much passion do you have to get published, have a book and get your message in print form?   Only you can answer these questions and the answers will determine if you are willing to put wings to your dream or allow your dream to stay grounded.

4.        Take action now.  When I go speak in a certain city, I always have people come up to me and tell me they are in the process of writing a book, or plan to write a book.  What always amazes me is when I visit that same city the next year or so, 95 percent of those same people who told me about their writing dreams have done nothing to towards making them a reality.  Dreaming is worthless unless you add action with it.  My mentor Bob Proctor taught me how to make decisions based on what I want, not what I think I can do, not what circumstances dictate to me or what my bank account tells me what I can or cannot do. 

Start taking action now, today, and the plan, the people and resources will always show up along the way.

5.        Know your purpose.  You must know what you want and why you want it.  Many people know what they want, but when it comes to analyzing why they want it they become clueless.  Know why you want to become a published author.  It is because you have a burning message in your heart that you fill compelled to get out into the market, a desire to help people through the power of the pen, to sell a lot of books and create a fortune?  These are all worthy and honorable goals.  Whatever your reason, whatever your purpose is to become a published author know them and you will be well on your way to making your dream come true.

“It Doesn’t Make Any Sense”

My older brother Charlie has a saying that drives me and everyone else crazy.  Every time something does not seem logical to him (which is about a thousand times a day) he shouts out, “It doesn’t make any sense”!  Even though his constant statement is as annoying as missing front teeth while eating corn on the cob, it give us a good insight to success and failure in business.

The world of business and the marketplace is a very unique, dynamic to work and serve in because it defies logic and common sense.  However the oxymoron is that although it defies common sense and logic it operates on set principals. If you know, understand and operate on these set principals you will succeed famously, if however you do not know these business laws no matter how integrity based, quality driven your product or service is, you will meet with bitter disappointment.  Let me give you an example.  We offer a very high quality Exclusive Inner Circle Membership free of charge where we send every month free of charge and postpaid (we even pay for the shipping) over $300.00 worth of materials, DVD’s, CD’s and books on the most cutting edge marketing and sales material available on the market to our members.

Now logic and common sense would say anyone with one eye and half a brain would jump on this free offer faster than ants on sugar. Someone would have to be crazy not to take advantage of this kind of offer, right?  I mean please, nobody is that stupid to say no to that kind of offer…right?  Now if we based this free service on that logic and common sense we would have failed miserably. But because business does not operate on logic and common sense but on principals we know that as incredible as this free offer is, only 7 out of every 100 would take advantage of our offer. Then 3 out of those 7 would ask us to stop sending the free package after 90 days because they did not have time to study and use the material.

Someone who does not understand the principal of business and only operates in logic and common sense would ask; “What is the catch? How could you possibly afford to give away $300.00 worth of materials every month and even pay for the shipping?” Or as my brother Charlie would say; “It Doesn’t Make Any Sense”.  The answer is simple.  Only about four percent of all those who say they want to double and triple their income are willing to do the necessary actions to make that a reality.

chriswisebookTherefore logically, we could not afford to offer this free service if business was based on that which is logical, but we do it successfully because business is based on principals.  Can you see the difference?  Is this starting to make sense for you?   Here is another true example.  Many professionals and business people operate their business on high alert to extract money from the marketplace, better known as the customer and then proceed to provide service and products. That is just pure logic and common sense, right?  The problem is, logic and common sense will not fill your wallet with money but instead empty it.

Business principals dictate that in order to get we must first give, before we make a withdrawal we must first make deposits.  This is why our system of giving away high quality products of e-books, printed books, DVD’s, CD’s, and memberships work so effectively in growing our business, customer and client base as well as our income.

If you want to succeed in business you must learn the laws and language of business and realize business does not operate on the premise of logic and common sense. And because of this fact, we see the most talented, high potential, extremely gifted people fail simply because they base what they do on logic and not principals.

In closing let me share with you 5 things to double and triple your income.

  1. Raise your Prices by 20 percent and raise your value and service to your customers and the marketplace by 95 percent. 
  1. Get Rid of nasty, caustic people in your life even if they are big customers, important vendors or long time friends.  These people do not make you money, they take money from you. Listen if you want hemorrhoids the size of balloons, and bleeding ulcers keep dealing with caustic people…you will get there sooner than later. 
  1. Work Harder but smarter.  Don’t torture yourself (and everyone else around you) cold calling, pressure selling, and stress, but instead use our system of “Painless Prospecting” and Painless Selling”.  You will be far more effective, far less stressful and be far more successful. 
  1. Be a Nice Person.  Hey I get it, with all the daily stress in life, dealing with people and all their issues, financial pressures, being an “A” personality and having a pet at home that farts, it is darn hard to be a nice person all the time.  But I have found that having a pocket full of money is the fastest pathway to being a Nice Person!  So the moral of this tip?  Double and triple your income…and for the pet with bad manners, try changing their diet. I think that is what Kramer did with his horse Rusty that ate all those beans. 
  1. Become a Co-Author in our upcoming Power of Mentorship book.  It’s the easiest, fastest and most profitable way to start yourself on the path to a double and triple income increase.

P.S. If you are ever in a store and hear someone shout out “It Doesn’t Make Any Sense” ask him if his name is Charlie?  It just might be my brother!
