7 Strategy Tweaks To Triple Your eBook Sales in the Next 30 Days

By Jawad Khan

The eBook and info product market is getting bigger every year and showing no signs of slowing down.

If you have a blog and a loyal audience (even a small one), packaging your knowledge into an eBook and selling it directly to your fans can make you a lot of money. Thousands of bloggers, freelancers and experts in different industries are already doing it.

But what separates the most successful eBook sellers from the rest is their sales strategy. If you already have a quality eBook, you just need a few other pieces in place to create a massively successful eBook sales strategy.

How exactly can you do that? Here are few ideas for you.

Content Writing Jobs: 10 Upwork Alternatives For Finding Better Paying Jobs

upwork alternatives

Every day, many people come online to make a living as a writer — hoping to enjoy the freedom they desire by engaging themselves in content writing jobs from the comfort of their homes. Naturally, the first option they get introduced to is sites like Upwork (formerly oDesk), Guru and Freelancer.com — often unaware that there are better alternatives to sites like Upwork.

Instead of freedom, they get slavery.

It’s not long before they realize that they are running another rat race. They quickly discover that they are stuck in a never-ending hamster wheel of servitude to “clients,” with nothing to show for it. The “earn a good living by doing content writing jobs from home” dream they’ve been sold suddenly seems like an illusion.

This is bad. I strongly believe that to make a good living as a freelance writer, you need to think beyond Upwork, Guru, Freelancer.com and so called “freelance bidding sites.” You need to look for reliable, better-paying alternatives to these sites.

We all know how volatile freelance writing can be.

One moment everything is running smoothly, and in the next breath a major client decides to drop you, causing you to lose a significant percentage of your income in an instant. How can you insure yourself against this kind of thing? Simple – by having multiple streams of income!

“From the very start of my career, I was aware that it would be a mistake to purely freelance and to never have any other income coming in, so I always had more than one streams of income,” says Ali Luke. “I definitely recommend other freelancers find some time to spend on their own projects.”

Now, almost a decade after she started her freelance writing career, Ali has money coming in from client work; from her e-Books; from her membership site; from her novels; and even from a couple of websites she hasn’t updated in years.

Why You Have to Think Like an Entrepreneur to Make Money as a Writer

By Susan Shain

You’re a writer. Whether it’s scenes, characters or blog posts, your passion is creating.

What your passion probably is not? Business. Budgets, marketing, networking — they make your head swirl.

But without a firm business foundation, you’ll never make money as a writer. Sure, you may find some success because you’re talented — but to truly grow your business and get paid what you’re worth, you have to start thinking like an entrepreneur.

Are You a Writer or a Coward?

Guest post by Trent

Chances are, whether you would like to admit it or not, you’re a coward right now.  That may be a hard truth for you to face, but if you’re reading the material in this blog and you still spend the majority of your time working for someone else instead of following your own dreams because of fear, you are being a coward.  There is hope though; even the bravest of heroes go through a cowardly phase and they always come out stronger.  You can be the next hero to overcome your fears!
