This surprising #1 Bestseller Secret for Authors

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

Next week, I am co-hosting a new summit with Derek Doepker, the Bestseller Secrets Summit.
One of the most eye opening interviews was when I interviewed Derek.
When we started talking, he confirmed that THE MOST IMPORTANT PART of his entire author platform is his email list.
Most authors don’t see it that way. The myth is that email is something you figure out later on.
But Derek not only shares why you should focus on email now, but how you can get started quickly and maintain it easily.
In fact, your email list can and should be entirely tailored to your personality.
There are many, many reasons to start building an email list, even before you publish. Derek shares many of them (some were news to me!).
Also, at the Bestseller Secrets Summit, you’ll hear the latest and greatest experts like Nick Stephenson, Rob Kosberg, Alinka Rutkowska, Brian Berni, Paul Brodie, Honorée Corder, Jonathan Green, Joshua Sprague, Karen Ferreira — plus many more!
Here’s just a small sample of what you’ll learn during the summit sessions:
How to use Book Ads to Drive Sales on Autopilot
The Secrets To Hitting The USA Today Bestseller List
Multiple Social Media Strategies to suit your style of engagement
Bulk Book Sales Secrets
How to Use Email Marketing to create a long term author business
Plus much, much more!

She said, “Scram, before I nunchuck you!”

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

The other night at dinner, we were all eating and chatting away when my eight year old daughter shouted… “Scram, before I nunchuck you!”
I tried to determine if she was talking to my son (11), or just shouting indiscriminately to no one.
Turns out it was the latter.
She had heard it on some cartoon, and simply repeated the phrase. I believe mostly because of the energy and passion of the way it was said when she heard it.
She then had to explain to her mom what a nunchuck is.
The fact that people are energized by things they see, hear and/or read is something to pay attention to.
When we a phrase resonates with us (whether philosophically or energetically), we are bound to remember it.
That is why it is important you share your wisdom, and energy as many places as possible.
Most authors should considering expanding their message to more platforms.
That is where a Bookfunnel fits in.
A Bookfunnel is a sales funnel on your website that not only sells your book, but:
Sells other products after the book
Allows customers to consider your book without any other distractions (unlike Amazon)
Creates authority (and partnership opportunities) with other influencers
Gives you your customer data, and contact info to share the next thing
Allows you to build your list (even with people who do not buy), and sell them something else later
And much more…
Here is the thing…
Most authors think this is something they have to wait on until they are “big time.”
The exact opposite is true. You should consider this now, or at least learn the skill and create a plan for your bookfunnel.
We are teaching a pilot course that starts this Wednesday called Bookfunnel University, and are looking for a few great students who want to work this into their authorpreneur plans. There are some great benefits to the pilot, including coaching calls for your particular situation.
If you are interested learning more, and joining the course now (while it is a pilot) at a substantial discount, with some unbelievable bonuses, check it out here: https∶//www.bookfunnel.io/ (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1jstqwzAQRb_G2tXoHXmhRSCEdFtCoMuRPKpFbMnIbo3z9VVCt4XhDtzFuQct05oqJhUzpLesl05qEi2nnFPDZE0mdRskUESutQbPvRCNpAV2V3CYWp8nMlgAVFIJbxjiQUsROvCqVx03of5DIKMd1nVeGnFs-Lnetm2ty_kevlPCsY25dgQniOMFlsH66fwz5-NoPq474tuePi8nTnxOK_j1vbeaOxVMF6hxSnGlq7igwCQp9mk25i_R5nB_mFRdHzBHLE_2y_aPcsOyxJxec__gxC8ABVjn)
Either way, don’t let Amazon alone decide the fate of your author career. Creating your own platform to sell more books, at the price your book is worth should be part of your long term plans. Leap.Love.Grow.

Would you rather try to sell 33,374 books or just 579?

Sometimes marketing harder is just not the answer.
If you have had any experience marketing your book, especially on Amazon, you know what I am talking about.
The margins are generally so tight, that it can feel like a hamster wheel. And frankly it is.
There are distractions: How often do you stay focused on what you went to Amazon before you start looking at something else. Especially if you are doing something like, just browsing for books.
But take it one step further, and take the time to do the math.
Say the goal is to make $10,000 on your book monthly. Your particular niche dictates that your Kindle book should sell at 99¢. You don’t have much choice, even if your book is much more valuable, because the competition is so high on Amazon.
If you run no ads, after Amazon takes their cut, you have to make 33,334 sales to eclipse 10k in income.
What if you could set up your own site, and sell your book via a Bookfunnel. A Bookfunnel is a sales funnel on your website that not only sells your book, but offers other optional products. It could look something like this:
Your book is free plus shipping (say you charge $9.99 shipping)
You have a bump (upsell) for the book’s Digi Pak (audiobook and eBook) for $27
You also have a course as an upsell for $97
The goal would be to break even just on the book portion (that is called a self-liquidating offer), but on average each sale you make conservatively averages around $19 (some people just buy the book, but some buy the bump and a few buy the course upsell). Your mileage will vary (this is just an example of the math).
In this simple scenario, the revenue per sale is $19, meaning you only have to sell 527 to make 10k (not 33,334).
This is just an example, but every author should do the math on what is really required to reach their goals.
You can’t hope and pray to make 10k a month from a Kindle book, when it is pretty much impossible on Amazon. But you might have a better chance if you think outside of the box.
You can see more of the math I used here, along with other reasons to consider adding your own platform to the equation here: https∶//www.bookfunnel.io/ (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1jsFOxCAURb-mLJv3gEfpgsUYY9SVi4mJS2jBYluY0JrG-XqZiVuTu7q5Ofd4g0qB0Fr1PRsNjtJJxaLhwDloFIggCVuJWllHwOvQo-saCcX-uOKntR3yyiZDgxbBd53lgRBISKFID9ID-BE74dlipn2_bI04Nfyp5jiO1uU8h–U_NLGXDvmVxuXZ7tNpry9Sn3AY_xwK51P6eHrPM5syGm3w_4yGsUdBd0H0I6Ik6riAixKVszNbMmfos1hvupUXa_2En25se-2f5R3X7aY0_3uH5z4BbMPVzQ)

P.S. By the way, I am not saying don’t advertise. I still do, but I do it to get optins to my list (via my books).

He made $62,800 in one hour, illegally

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

One my favorite true stories, comes from the book Catch Me If You Can, by Frank Abagnale.
You may recall the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio (which is not nearly as good as the book).
Frank was a real life conman, chased by an FBI agent for years, nearly died in prison in France, and now works for the “good” guys in securing checks and currency.
The book is all about his life, and his scams. Most are hard to believe he pulled off, or even had the gumption to try.
One of his scams occurred at an airport.
He had noticed that after closing time for airport shops (late night), all the shopkeepers would stop by the Bean State National Bank branch in the airport and drop deposit envelopes into the bank’s nighttime deposit drop-off (basically a slot on the outside of the bank wall).
So, Frank made a quick call to the main bank number, and asked to speak to security. He told them he was a new employee, and his uniform had been ripped by accident. He desperately needed a new one for his shift “that night.”
The bank told him to go to the uniform company downtown, and ask for a specific person there. Which he promptly did, and walked out with a bank security uniform.
He then bought a replica gun from a gun shop for the holster that came with the uniform (to look official and all).
That afternoon, he rented a station wagon and heads off to the airport. He put stickers on each side of the station wagon that said, ” Security – Bean State National Bank.”
At 11:15pm, he was standing “at attention” next to the in-airport terminal bank branch. The deposit vault now had a sign over it that read… “NIGHT DEPOSIT VAULT OUT OF ORDER, PLEASE MAKE DEPOSITS WITH THE SECURITY OFFICER.”
Frank stood next to it, with a big mail bag on a dolly.
Over the course of the next hour, 35 shopkeepers put bags or envelopes into the mail bag without so much as a “hello” to him as he stood their stoically.
When it came time to leave, Frank rolled the dolly toward the exit doors.
The dolly was so weighted down, it got stuck on the weather stripping below the automatic doors.
As he struggled, someone said, “What’s going on, buddy?” As Frank explains… “I twisted my head and nearly soiled my drawers.”
There were two state troopers standing right there looking at him.
So he explained to them that the bank vault was broken, and that he was left alone with the “company” station wagon to get this money downtown. What did they do?
They helped him bring the money all the way to the car AND LOAD IT TOO!
In all, he walked away with $62,800 in cash.
I am not a fan of the bad guys, but I laugh out loud every time I read that story because Abagnale must have had supreme confidence in himself to pull that off.
Especially, when he encountered the two state troopers. So, what do you do if you are a law abiding author, but want to have that kind of confidence (and real financial success)?
One of the best ways to build your confidence is to have something to sell (outside of Amazon) that includes your book and potentially other products.
In fact, having something else is almost a requirement these days to get others just to promote your book. Something that is worthwhile for other potential partners to promote monetarily (not a tiny Amazon affiliate commission).
That is where a Bookfunnel fits in beautifully for authors.
A Bookfunnel is a sales funnel on your website that not only sells your book, but:
Sells other products after the book
Allows customers to consider your book without any other distractions (unlike Amazon)
Creates authority (and partnership opportunities) with other influencers
Gives you your customer data, and contact info to share the next thing

How to break through your marketing obstacles with ease

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

In June, I watched something I knew would become a permanent part of my business… a marketing webinar that was totally different to any I’ve attended before… it was genuinely engaging and enjoyable!

The marketing expert presenting the webinar was Tom Poland. You might’ve heard of him as an author – he’s written several bestselling business books.

And if you want to know what I mean when I say his webinar was different, check out this 3-minute video clip (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1j8tqwzAQRb_GWpqRNJLlhRalbUgoZBnoyujlWsS2jGyaJl9fOXRbmMXAcM-5EzSVokWKDWXEa-rRoiRRM2AMFDBATkHW2DLZeBNcg9yj8hVCNnebwzDVLk1kKEnJuLLKKWiokKhCryTnDiyg6K0hox62bVkr_lKxQ5k9X0-hbLdg42xyOR26bklr3GKau67ib0DCZOJ4NOug8fPn-v56Hi7so5F3c_teznYmLs2bcdvJa8ms6FXbg7JCMCHLJxwMRZL1rhrTF69Tf32ouZR_mCWGvLOf9f8ol5DXon7q_sHxXyJtXW0)

In his Live Interactive Virtual Event (L.I.V.E.), Tom demonstrates how to generate a high-quality flow of new client inquiries, in less than one hour a month, by marketing with webinars.

Tom’s method works even if you:
Have no email list
Have no idea how to attract audiences
Have no budget for advertising your webinars
Have no idea of how to put together the content for your webinar
So long as you’re a professional offering advice, services, or software, with an average sale price of a thousand dollars or more, you can use the method Tom shows you – and it will work for you. (He says this is the biggest lead generation breakthrough for professionals in his lifetime, and he’s been in marketing for 37 years.)

I then interviewed Tom about this (in June’s Book Profit Summit).

Tom’s presenting it again in a few days (Wednesday in the US), so if you’d like to see it for yourself, save your seat right here:
L.I.V.E. demo of marketing with webinars – save your seat now (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1j8tqwzAQRb_GWho9Rg8vtChtQ0shy0BXZmRJtYhtGdk0Tb6-Sui2MIuB4Z5zJ1imZAcMNOPEW-bBgSLJcso5NZRTEIyqFjqutMcwaBAejG-AFry6Esa5HfJMRhu9QR87QQOXA2qIIUjwKMxgqNM-ksmO-75ujXhq-KHOPd_OoW6X4NKCpZ4Ofb_mLe0pL33fiBdGwoxpesNttPD5c359Po4n_qHVFS_f69EtZMjLjsP-7q3iTkbTRWqclFyq-omgyIAUe1dN-Uu0OZ5vZqnlb7imUO7sR_0_yimUraofun9w4hdONV7H)
Tom has a “no replay” policy, so you do need to attend live. But there are two times you can choose from.
Pay particular attention to where he gets all his leads, and how he recruits them (hint: it isn’t tough and he doesn’t have to do it himself).
This is one of those skillsets that will benefit you long into the future. And the beautiful thing about this is, Tom is using the exact method of delivery he teaches to present his system. So you can not only listen to his content, but watch how he delivers it to you.

“He came out of nowhere!”

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

Back in November of 2020, I took a phone call from a gentleman considering using our Done-For-You Summit Service.
In the end, he really wanted to do it, but the investment was a little bit too much for his budget. He was in the fiction publishing space, had published his first book.
He wanted to start his business, had the skills, but was just starting out on the name recognition side of things.
I really liked him, and sent him some videos for motivation, and we said we would keep in touch.
A year later, he joined the first edition of my Summit Lab program.
Six months after that, he hosted his first summit (on fiction authoring). He shared his data with me, and when I saw the email list he built solely from one summit, I said… “That’s a real business!”
In fact, he quit his day job prior to the summit to focus on this business, with only faith and persistence at his side.
Fast forward to this week and he is crushing it with his second summit.
More importantly, he has made some incredible connections.
“Philip is one of my favorite people I met this year. We met through an interview for his very own summit, the Powerhouse Authoring Summit.”

“Elvis has left the building”

*** For More: Check out our podcast https://ray.fm ***

My wife and I saw the new Elvis movie at the theatre this week.
It is really well done, and I highly recommend you check it out (if you like “The King”).
It shares how he persevered against the elements in society that were against him, but also how he was severely manipulated by his manager (the bit I did not know very well).
At one point early in his career, he would travel with multiple acts, and perform somewhere in the middle.
But he was far and away the most popular performer of these events, and the crowds would go crazy. After he would leave the stage, the frenzied fans were always in a state of waiting and hopeful for him to come back out, and play an encore.
This impacted the acts that followed, caused safety concerns, and general craziness.
So the venues started letting everyone know Elvis was gone by saying, “Elvis has left the building.”
That phrase has been used since as slang for many other things like home runs in baseball, people retiring, or even death.
In our case, the Author MasterKit is about to leave the building (tonight at midnight).
The Author MasterKit is a bundle of framework masterclasses.
That means you can consume them in less time, while utilizing a similar style of delivery, so that you can start implementing right away.
It is like taking a Sailor’s Shower for Authors. It can get you there faster, and help you develop your own method.
The Author MasterKit is on sale this week (for early adopters), and contains 9 framework masterclasses specifically made for authors.
The great thing about this bundle is you get lifetime access to all the courses (valued at $2973) for only $77. The courses were hand curated to assist you at each stage of your author journey:
Writing and Publishing
Launching and Marketing
Profiting and Backend Business Building
Regardless of what stage of the process you are, one of those courses probably applies to you right now.
Don’t waste any more time on long, slow to digest courses.
Check out the early bird offer of the Author MasterKit here: https∶//masterkit.io/early (https://email.raybrehm.com/c/eJx1zrtuhDAQheGnwV3QeHzBFC5WiqKNtkRK7xvBi8HIuMjy9GFXaSNNM81_vqCpFEoKAEGJ19RzyyWJGgEROuSgQEDXemckdZ1TwjIuPTYcinnYEqaldXkhk3aiR7SUdqA8dr2nvKfIR-WDNU45T5Keat32hl0a_DhvMXsNZY61jfl8gynpQcJiYrqafdL39Dbc6JD81l_nn_UY3u_mRlxeq3H102uJVoyqH0FZIVDIE87AUE6KfspS_mZtHudDraf1MFsM5dl-af8qX6HsMa-vuX9y7Be2TFil) Leap.
