Amazon Pays This Self-Published Author $450,000 Per Year!

    I read a lot. I'm always in search of helpful information regarding how to sell more books online, up and above what I've learned during my over 20-year career in book publishing, sales, and marketing. The other night, I came across an online Forbes article that I thought might also interest you.

    I'm unable to share the link here for some reason. I keep getting the attached error message. ??? So, you'll have to Google it yourself to find it. Just do a search for Amazon Pays $450,000 A Year To This Self-Published Writer to find it.

    Since so many of you are producing your own information products to promote your online businesses, and you're looking for the best ways to monetize those products, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn how this author did it using email marketing. And he says he earns this amount of money with only 15,000 subscribers!

    Enjoy the read. I hope it helps you with your own business.

    Obviously Mark Dawson is a very smart guy and a savvy entrepreneur. Not many authors can pull something like this off.

    I think writing quality has a lot to do with it. If you produce crap and then just post it to Amazon via CreateSpace, you won't see these kinds of results. But if you write/publish the book professionally (e.g. including professional editing, graphic design, proofreading), then you definitely stand a chance.

    450,000$ a year, that's more than the US presidential salary. Defiantly an interesting read, thanks for sharing it.

    Yes, this is interesting and inspiring. I am thinking of making an eBook, or perhaps even a regular book.

    You can write and publish e-books in your native language. Or you can hire ghostwriters to write e-books for you in English.

    That's a lot of money, and to think he started in his free time while traveling! Maybe I should write ebooks.

    Anyway, thanks for the read. I found it really interesting.
