Smart Self Publishing in 2015

In 2012, I shifted my focus to self publishing via Amazon Kindle. My goal was to make money, build my list and gain authority in the process. During the next 15 months or so I began to test, tweak and discovered the very best methods and tactics which led to my 6-Step Kindle Self Publishing system which you can read about in Azon Best Seller.

This 6-Step system has led to numerous best selling, money making Kindle books and I wanted to share the process with others. Furthermore, I also wanted to create a book publishing method that would make it fast and easy to publish quality books that added value for the buyer while also generating financial results for the publisher.


Because, success only comes when a project is finished. With digital marketing that means publishing and my goal was success for as many students as possible. This is exactly why I wanted to create a quick and easy publishing system. I knew it would open the doors of possibility and would also fuel additional effort for those who jumped in.

Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 8.37.21 AMWhat I came up with was the creation of non fiction children's books. Why children's books and why non fiction you ask? Well, children's books are often filled with images, this would reduce writing, which for many is a road block. Non fiction meant no storyline, character creation and what not. Furthermore, most of the work was already done and complete. That is the author could create simple sentences describing the images and subject matter.

I tested the method myself and published several dozen of these book types. Most written under a pen name, however one was published under my own name. This particular book was written about space and has received over 30 positive reviews on Amazon and has made me hundreds of dollars in the process. Not bad for a book that took a number of days to create start to finish.

Books Focusing on Images & Pictures

Another common element found in success is the ability to figure out how to say yes to good opportunities. This is something I talk about often, if you don't like the thought of putting yourself on video. That does not mean that you can't leverage the video marketing opportunity. If you do not like writing, again that does not mean you can not leverage various marketing methods such as self publishing. Success begins with being open minded and figuring out how to say yes and then publishing.

Today, consumers are buying plenty of books that are image based. This opens up opportunity for the savvy marketer that understands the power of, "giving the people what they want". New York Times best selling author Joel Comm just published a book that's based mostly on images that he used to grow his social following on Facebook.

Grab Joel Comm's Social Poetry

The book is book called Social Poetry and is a collection of about 50 or so images quotes that Joel created himself using WordSwag which is an awesome iPhone / iPad app that makes creating stunning "quote" images a snap. I use the app myself and create fun, silly, serious and thought provoking quote images that I share on Instagram and Facebook.

Like Joel, I plan on publishing a book based the images I've created using WordSwag. You can pick up a copy of Joel's book for free (offer good through December 28th).

    I grabbed Joel’s book yesterday and read through it in one sitting while waiting for something else. Simple and brilliant! Thanks for your spin on it today. Brian I’ve learned the most from you over the past few years about internet marketing. It’s been a steep learning curve for me but I do have 8 Kindle books published now and two hard copies. 2015 is the year of marketing efforts for me along with continued production activities. I am excited!
