How Can Group Coaching Help You Get Your Book Published?

Are you still trying to self-publish our book? Let me tell you how group coaching can help you get your book published.

Okay, so when you're getting started with self-publishing, there's one thing you're going to notice happens fast: a sense of overwhelm. There are so many decisions that you need to make, so many tools that you can choose from and learn how to use. Those tools can help you with finding keywords, marketing, ads, putting your book together, and even creating your cover.

Amid all this chaos, many voices are telling you to go in different directions with the book you've finished writing. In all of this mess, there's one thing you should consider doing, and that's what we're going to talk about in today's topic.

We're going to discuss how group coaching can help you get your book published. One of the main challenges that authors face is that they've finished their book. Maybe they tried to have it traditionally published and went through many rounds of rejections, or they did self-publish it but didn't achieve the desired results.

Now, you understand the benefits of getting your book self-published. However, the top challenges in the self-publishing front revolve around the issue of tools. You have to work with tools that will help you find keywords, tools that will assist you with marketing, tools that are crucial for running effective ads, and tools that will help you put your book together.

These tools include writing and designing your book cover. So, you have a huge issue there. Then, when you have your book all put together, you face the challenge of deciding which platforms to use and in which formats you want your book to be available.

Additionally, there are numerous distribution channels that you can choose from for your book. Also, we have to look at what the pricing will be for each of these books in different regions. This is just a few of the things to consider. Even putting the book together involves working with several freelancers.

Are you going to learn how to format the book yourself, as I teach people in my Judo formatting course? Or are you going to hire a freelancer? And if so, which freelancer are you going to hire to ensure that the book is done correctly? This applies to the covers for your book as well. Not all the different Fiverr or Upwork cover designers or 99designs designers are equally good.

One of the things you will discover is that you're bound to make a lot of mistakes unless you have some guidance on which way to go with these aspects. Another consideration is the different types and formats of your book. Should it be hardcover or paperback? If so, what size should these books be?

The result is that you start to lose that initial spark of energy and motivation you had when you started with your book. You had a vision of getting it onto the market, but now all you're experiencing is frustration. You're hitting this wall of decisions that come with the advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing.

Engaging in a Program

When you're handling all the steps yourself, there are just so many things to consider. As mentioned before, there are about a thousand different strategies. And if you're going to try to learn all thousand, you're never going to get your book onto the market. Instead, focus on just getting it out there.

However, even getting it out there alone requires a lot of motivation and energy. This whole soup of choices and decisions can be very painful. It often leads to uncompleted projects, leaving your book unpublished. So, what's the solution to this? Well, I'm telling you that one of the key solutions is getting into a program.

In this case, we're looking at the group coaching program that I offer. What do we do? We engage in daily back-and-forth communication in a group format. We primarily use Slack, which works on all your devices. From Monday to Friday, we assess your progress and determine the next natural step for you to take.

You don't have to focus on a thousand tools simultaneously; instead, we focus on one tool or one step at a time. I guide you through each step, showing you exactly how to complete it. By following this step-by-step approach, you'll find that you can get your book out there.

We can also optimize all the different aspects of the book within this group coaching framework. Additionally, listening to the answers I provide to other students and clients in the same forum is part of the solution as well.

If you join this program, you'll find that some people are ahead of you, while others are behind you. This dynamic provides valuable feedback on what you can expect in the future, without overwhelming you. With Self-Publishing Made Easy, our focus is always on one step at a time, not getting caught up 15 or 20 steps ahead.

One crucial aspect is the ability to discuss and address challenges within Slack. You can express your concerns in written format, which many people prefer. Alternatively, you can use audio or video, giving you flexibility in communication. All of these options come at a reasonable price.

Now, let's talk about the benefits you can expect from this program. Firstly, we will get your book published. I have never had a single client who followed the step-by-step process I provide and didn't succeed in getting their book published. We maintain a 100% success rate.

Overcoming the Challenges

Regardless of your level of technological expertise, it's not a problem. As long as you have a computer and an internet connection, I can guide you through all the necessary steps, regardless of your proficiency.

Secondly, we will show you how to set up ads for your book. This will help generate traffic and direct potential readers to your book. Additionally, we will guide you on which platforms work best for your book and how to make it available in various formats.

Our goal is to ensure that as many people as possible can see and purchase your book in the right format. We will guide you through the pricing strategy for your books, helping you determine the optimal price points. We will also assist you in selecting the best cover designs for your books.

Specifically, we will delve into the realm of keywords and analyze your main competitors, including the best-selling authors who are publishing books similar to yours. By working backward and deciphering their strategies, we can ensure that your book is set up for success right from the start.

I can't stress enough how many clients I have encountered who have an entire series of books that aren't selling at all. Often, it's due to minor adjustments they are unaware of. The easiest way to overcome this is by joining our group coaching program.

We will address your specific challenges and break them down into manageable steps, regardless of your technical expertise. We will guide you through the process, all at a reasonable price.

I highly recommend considering this one-on-one, or even group, coaching environment if you don't have anyone currently assisting you. The back-and-forth interaction and regular assessment of your situation will significantly accelerate the process, possibly by five to ten times compared to going it alone.

Take a moment to look at my group coaching page, where you can determine if it's the right fit for you. If it is, I look forward to welcoming you among the other students who are already benefiting from the group coaching program.
