Another $700 While I Slept

At the end of December, I posted that my little book of grandad jokes had made $500 in royalties for me.

These were all paperback sales, probably bought as stocking fillers for Dads and Grandads.

And of course, pretty much dried up after Christmas.

But now, a further $700 in January.

This time, my little book of Keto Diet combined with a 4-minute workout.

Almost all Kindle sales.

(With the right pricing strategy, you make as much from a cheap Kindle sale as from a more expensive paperback sale, because of the printing cost.)

These will have been driven by New Year's resolutions to lose weight.

So I'll need to promote something new for this month!

Congratulations on your sales at the end of the year and then a follow on it January. It is nice to get a surprise..

Yes, those Kindle sales count up. We have done it too and it works.
It takes a little time to get used to the "publishing part" but once that is accomplished the rest is easy.

Here's to more sales.

Thank you for those words of encouragement, George.

That's wonderful, Phil!

I have a 60-page eBook that I wrote for playing the guitar. I was going to use it as a lead magnet for email addresses but I'll check out your training and maybe try to sell it on Amazon for a few bucks, as well.

It will be a great learning experience.

Thanks!

Sure, you can do both.

Hello Wealthy Affiliate. I am new here and have upgrade to premium. Really want to get a profitable business going. I have created my first Niche website. I am working through the training as fast as I can. My Niche that I chose is Gaming Laptops but I am not sure if there is too competition in this Niche. I am pretty sure this niche is a growing thing and people are always trying to play the best games on their laptop. These laptops are not cheap so I feel like that will allow me to make large commissions for referring these products. Any thoughts from the community would be appreciated.

Awesome news Phil and the success I feel will continue to compound. Maybe a collaborative with Mel Waller in the health niche could boost this income source. His chair 💺 workout videos on YouTube could be an opportunity at least for both to earn off the Keto book if Mel does Amazon. Are you utilizing tribes and Goodreads for boosters as well or maybe Amazon Ads?

Yeah, I'll discuss it with Mel as we are both working in the health and fitness niche. Thanks. I use Amazon ads occasionally but really need to do other promotions as well.

Keyword ideas and sub niches for the mmo niche?

I have decided to go into the "make money online" niche to help folks avoid scams and get good training into blogging and affiliate marketing, as I am passionate about the subject matter. I'm having trouble brainstorming sub niche ideas and keyword research that is low competition. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks so much. Just don't want to end up with another thin abandoned MMO site.

That's great
I am doing the Bootcamp as well.
I stick to the training as it is the blueprint.
Thank you.
Lula
