I MAKE A LOT OF MISTAKES!
For years I left 💰💰 on the table… I’m sure I still do some days but I’m doing my best & focusing on what pays my bills each month and more.. 👌
The first few years after my book came out, I would always drive people to Barnes & Noble’s site because I thought that looked WAY cooler than Amazon.. Just being honest. 😂😂
Little did I know that the royalties were less on their site compared to Amazon, 😱😱 and Amazon takes care of re-targetting & a bunch of other cool stuff I’m not good at just by sending people there.. and when people buy it with other books it shows up as “frequently bought together” etc. which helps..
I didn’t know about this until I got a mentor.. I asked questions.. I read books on how to sell more books & increase margins.. heck I learned how to pay myself more than Amazon royalties pay me each month.. more on that in another post (or book?) 👀👀
Moral of the story is: learn from your mistakes, find a mentor, ask questions, read the books, surrender your ego, humble yourself, take notes, attend the events, invest in yourself, not just money but sweat equity too.. pull your calculators out, make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck my friends!
Don’t let your ego get in the way like I did.. go accomplish everything you’ve always dreamed of!
