Methods In Getting Sales
With the individual coaching sessions where they can look at exactly what you're doing at the same point. He's got a network attached to it. It's able to ensure that your books are going to get the sales that are coming in with running ads.
There are other tactics as well to ensure you could take a book and make it a best seller. Simply by ensuring that enough copies of that book are purchased by individuals.
That will put it up in fact, depending upon the categories of Amazon that you're in. You can very easily take a book that maybe nobody's even heard of. And make it an Amazon bestseller overnight. This is a strategy.
I've seen other publishers, I'm not into his specific methodology for helping you become a bestseller but that is a strategy that has been used by many people. Then you suddenly become a best seller on a category that may or may not be completely related to your book.
It doesn't have to sell that many copies. The same goes for the New York Times bestsellers, sometimes if it can get you a hundred thousand copies here, a thousand copies there you can become a New York Times bestseller.
It's unbelievable but it is absolutely true. I've had a number of my books became bestsellers just because they were popular, particularly my Sleep Book. It was a bestseller for several years.
Some weeks on Amazon's number one bestseller list but I didn't have to do any. I didn't get people buying the book or anything. That is a strategy that is also a possible scenario.
I'm not saying he's doing that. I don't know which methods he's doing but that is one of the ones where you have a whole group of people. If you've paid in so much money it makes it very easy for people to get those purchases done.
You simply have several hundred copies of books sold a day. You will be a best seller very shortly on Amazon's bestseller especially for you're new book. Because that also will be a new and best-selling book that gives also another way of going about doing that.
At the same time, if you've got the resources, you'll know the best ways to put those books together. To structure the books, to ensure those books are going to sell.
The next question you're going to wonder is, how much are they going to cost? That's our second answer of the day. The books caught are the courses that are going to cost you between $5,000 and $7,000 depending upon which course you decide to go.

From the introductory level course of just taking you from absolutely nothing on the page to having your book published and being a bestseller in 90 days.
He's had about 5,000 students that have gone through this course. But having looked at lots of courses and have taken lots of courses, I can tell you these are the priciest courses I've seen.
I haven't seen anybody selling courses that are more expensive than this. I have seen people who have been very positive. If you go on his website, of course, you'll see lots of positive reviews and raving reviews on it.
Benefits Of This Route
I've also heard some people said it was a little bit overpriced. They felt they were being pushed and sold. It's up to each individual.
I haven't specifically taken this course so I cannot comment on that. But I can say that it's the priciest course that I have seen on self-publishing on the market.
Then the question is, why exactly would you want to do this course if it is so pricey? And it is hitting it. The answer comes back to the secret question of the day.
It's if you have the money, it will allow you to motivate yourself. Somebody who invests $5,000 or $7,000 on a course is a person who usually will follow through and do what the course is suggesting.
Some so many people take cheap courses on Udemy that have maybe sometimes the same content that you might even find on this course. Then it's so cheap as a course that you feel okay with not doing it.
