Title: How to Create and Sell Digital Products for Additional Revenue Streams (without feeling stupid or salesy)
Writing costs money. Blogging, growing an email list, spending hours upon hours with your nose to a screen, cranking out chapters in preparation for the big publishing goal… somebody has to cover the costs incurred while you're building your writing career. How can you keep working toward your big dreams without draining the bank account meanwhile? The answer: turn your writing into digital products that you can sell while you sleep.
By the end of this training, you'll be able to:
Kick your fear of selling to the curb where it belongs. We'll explore common hang-ups that prevent writers from growing their reach through online paid products and how e-commerce can be a healthy part of your writing pursuits.
Stop wasting time creating endless free blog posts and social reels. We'll learn how creating LESS content can actually generate MORE (and better!) results for your business.
Make technology work FOR you, not against you. We'll reveal the biggest mistake people make when choosing online sales platforms and how you can be smart enough to avoid it.
BONUS for everyone who attends: Anatomy of a Sales Funnel cheat-sheet
ed. note: Thank you to Autumn Birt for this guest post! We are so excited about her new program for fantasy writers. Keep reading to learn more about this value-packed program that is a MUST for every fantasy writer,
Back when I first started writing fantasy and decided to give e-publishing a try, back in the early days of eBooks that I fondly refer to the Wild West, there wasn’t much information out to help authors. Now there seems to be too much and most of it contradicts itself!
I’m Autumn Birt, a bestselling and award-winning fantasy author (and past Women in Publishing Summit speaker!). I just released my thirteenth fantasy novel which completes my third series. I’m now a full-time writer traveling around the US with my husband and our Cairn Terrier, Ayashe, living the life of adventure that I love to write about in my epic fantasy stories. Well, minus the magic and dragons … but I’m looking for them!
Over the years as I learned how to successful write amazing stories, reach more readers, and market, I’ve written hundreds of blog posts offering free writing tips. But secretly, I wanted more.
What I want is to really, REALLY, help other authors. Not just with an occasional tip here and there amid random writing posts that I think, hope, will help you. No. I want to KNOW I impacted not only your writing but your writing career.
I dream big. I know. 😉
I’ve been gathering up all the things that have helped me create the awesome author business I have now, all those essential pieces of advice I wish someone had told and given me when I first started out as an indie author. And I’ve packaged them into one sweet little bundle that is so full of awesomeness that it makes me as excited as I was the first time I uploaded a book to Amazon (don’t tell Born of Water I said that. EVER.).
I know, really, how can anything besides writing be that good?
What if I told you what I’ve got coming is 12 seriously AWESOME modules that will teach you to write, edit, and publish your novel to raving fans? These step-by-step modules will help you take the spark of an idea and develop it into an amazing book with in-depth writing lessons that will teach you the pertinent details of just what you need to know to write an amazing book (and none of the extra crap that will only slow you down). AND, if that wasn’t sweet enough, it will show you the steps to build a fan base as you write, how to overcome, and totally defeat, writer’s block, plus the techniques to edit like a pro.

After that, it REALLY gets good.
That is when you jump into the module on the 5 essential parts of a cover AND how to format both an ebook and a paperback book using the templates the course provides. Did I just say ebook and paperback templates? Yup. They work great too. I just used them on my newest fantasy release (uploaded 2 days ago!). This course even provides an over-my-shoulder screencast video of how to use the templates and upload!
And that isn’t the end, oh no! There are still jam-packed lessons on how to launch a book to fans and reviews, including super-secret swipe files on how to build a launch team. And after all the excitement has worn off, as well as Amazon’s new release sales bump, how to continue to grow your author brand and expand into long-term marketing strategies.
Like I said, EVERYTHING you need to build your totally awesome author career. Swipe files to build your mailing list and launch team, awesome downloads, checklists, and cheat sheets to keep you organized, those over-my-shoulder videos to the exact steps you need to take, and then all that fantastic information packed into one single course. And there is even more! There are 3 amazing bonuses.
I’ve been dreaming of creating this for nearly two years.
Well more than dreaming. Because, like writing a book, things don’t happen, especially BIG and amazing things, if you don’t work hard to make them happen.
I CAN. NOT. WAIT. to help you with all those amazing lessons, downloads, swipe files, templates and MORE that are locked inside this amazing Guide, those awesome bonuses… Well, that is why it is called the Ultimate Fantasy Writer’s Guide!
