BOOSTED VISIBILITY: "Despite me doing nothing to market my free book, it has had around 7.5k downloads on Amazon US and nearly 5k on Amazon UK in the few weeks since implementing Nick’s strategies. My new mailing list went from 0 to 523 in the same time. I'm very excited about my next launch, and introducing all these new readers to more of my work."
David Gaughran, Author of Historical Adventure fiction, and bestselling author-marketing books Let’s Get Digital and Let’s Get Visible
Hi, Nick Stephenson here. I’m a bestselling fiction and non-fiction author – and I help other authors find their first 10,000 readers. I’m the guy the folks at the Self-Publishing Podcast, The Creative Penn, SideHustleNation, DavidGaughran.wordpress.com, Author Marketing Club, the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), the Rocking Self-publishing Podcast, and the UK group at the International Thriller Writers (ITW) used to help teach their audience about selling and marketing books, growing their audience, and finding freedom in their lives.
That’s why you’ll probably be surprised that I used to hate the thought of marketing and self-promotion. You see, when I first got started in this business, I saw how other authors were marketing themselves – using pushy “buy my book!” language and scammy tactics – and I felt like I needed to take a hot shower. It didn’t feel right.
But after almost a year of writing and publishing books, and still nowhere near the sales I needed, I knew I had to do something. I saw other authors’ books performing way ahead of mine, and I thought to myself: “I know my books are at least as good as these – if only people knew they exsited.”
And: “I don’t get many reviews, but when I DO – people tell me they love my books. Why can’t more people see them?” I was so frustrated.
But I didn’t want to copy what other authors were doing to market themselves. I had to figure out another way. So I did! The secret is... there is no secret. All you need to be successful selling anything online is a way to attract potential readers, then convert those potential readers into loyal (paying) fans. And, most importantly, building your career – long term – without resorting to scammy tactics.
It doesn’t matter whether you write non-fiction, fiction, blogs, how-to books, poetry, obscure fiction genres, romance, thrillers, science fiction, fantasty, or literary novels – this system works. It works because you are finally able to attract the right readers, and build your relationship with them direct, without relying on anyone else.
The best part? You don’t need to put a new book out every 6 weeks to keep visibility high – because you’ve already built up your own direct platform.
In short, you finally have a way to more effectively market the books and content you already have – and capitalize on the work you’ve already done – as well as skyrocket your results when you launch your next book, your next coaching product, or your next online course.
You spend months bleeding over your keyboard to get ready for prime time – you shouldn’t have to spend the rest of your free time trying to figure out what marketing and promotion strategies work.
And you don’t have to. I’ve developed a system you can use that works – regardless of the types of books or content you write.
REACHING READERS DIRECT: "I just wanted to firstly thank you Nick for your amazing work, and to share some results which proves it really, does, work! I implemented the system at the beginning of February and got an immediate boost in subscribers. Then I was able to get over 80,000 downloads with my first Bookbub ad – and a massive boost of my subscribers from 491 to nearly 3K. I’m so glad I took Nick’s advice!"
Tracey Alvarez, Author of Contemporary Fiction
THE DIFFERENCE IS NIGHT AND DAY: "I implemented Nick's system at the very end of March, 2015. In March, I had a total of 6 subscribers for the entire month, and that was about average for my newsletter since inception. In April, I had 195 subscribers, and in May, 389.
My sales on Amazon were so-so before using Nick's system, in part because the launch of Kindle Unlimited in late 2014 slaughtered my sales. Since putting Nick's system in place it's been night & day in comparison. My books have received over 50 four and five star reviews within 48 hours of release, sales have spiked and the books have appeared on their category best-seller lists."
Tracy Cooper-Posey, Author of Erotic Romance
