5 Profitable Businesses To Build Around a Non-Fiction Book by Jim Kukral #ASE17

How To Triple Your Revenue With Non-Fiction Books by Jim Kukral

CEO, AuthorMarketingClub.com & BusinessAroundaBook.com

Topics

  • How to maximize revenue from non-fictions books
  • How to take your expertise and sell it “beyond” the book
  • Discover business models available to you generate revenue
  • How you can get started today!

There are two reasons people use the Internet, and two reasons only:

  • To have a problem solved.
  • To be entertained.

Winning Non-Fiction Formula

  • Write a great book.
  • Build business abround the book.
  • Use book to drive leads to business.
  • Prodit. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Lets Do Some Math

  • The average non-fiction author will only sell 800 copies of their book in their lifetime!
  • Let’s say you are the anomaly and you sell 1,000 books next year.
  • 1,000 books sold at $5.99 on Amazon = $5,900
  • After you pay the Amazon cut, you make $4,130.
  • Plus your costs (cover, editing, marketing)
  • Maybe you only end up earning $2,000 from 1,000 books sold.
  • That’s not enough!

Why Do People Pay For Things?

  • People pay to have problems solved (non-fiction)
  • People pay to save themselves time
  • People pay because they don’t want to do it themselves
  • People pay because they don’t like making mistakes
  • So the question to you is…
  • What are you offering to people who want those things? And if you’re not… what’s stopping you?
  • Your book is an instant credibility builder and lead generator, it’s time you used it as such!

But Nobody Will Pay For What I Know!

  • Doesn’t matter in most cases what your book is about
  • Doesn’t matter that you think people don’t want to know what you know
  • What matters is you offer your expertise to a target of people who want the solution to the problem the have!
  • What matters is you use your book to build a business “around” that book!

The Big Questions

  • What type of business should I create “around” my book?
  • What do I price it at for maximum revenue/conversions?
  • How do I know if I’m pricing it too high or too low?
  • How do I most effectively close sales?
  • What should my sales funnel look like and how do I set it up?
  • Should I use Facebook ads? How do I set them up and where to target?
  • How much time/effort is this going to take from me to do?
  • How much money can I make from doing this?
  • What technology should I used to power my program?
  • How do I get my first sale and future sales?

Accelerating Revenue Growth Through Influencer Marketing by Tadd Spering #ASE17

Why influencer marketing?
Influencer marketing is one of the hottest, and most effective, ways to get your brand in front of a massive targeted audience.

Influencer Marketing Statistics

  • When social media is part of their buyer’s journey, customers tend to convert at a 129% higher rate.
  • They are also four times as likely to spend significantly more than those without a social component.
  • Customers acquired through word-of-mouth (such as influencer marketing) are retained at a 37% higher rate than those acquired through other means.

Brands are spending a lot on influencers

  • Globally, marketers spent $570 million on influencer marketing last year… on Instagram alone.
  • In 2016, brand sponsored influencer posts cost $9.7 million. By 2019, it’s expected to rise to $32.3 million. (Source: Media Kix)
  • On average, brands spent $25,000 – $50,000 per influencer campaign in 2016.
  • Some companies charge a minimum of $10k to run a campaign but results can be seen with a smaller budget.

Best Practices

Transparency

  • Ideal partnership between brand and influencer allows for transparency within the campaign terms and analytics.
  • Bloggers should disclose their exact number of followers and degree of influence.
  • Brands should clearly identify their content needs, specifically if there are any legal mentions such as #ad or #sponsored and pay influencers on time.

Campaign Tracing and KPIs

  • Brands and retailers should have a real-time view into how well the campaign is performing.
  • KPIs should be agreed upon before the campaign and measured fairly throughout.
  • Some influencers are better at driving sales and conversions while others are best for engagement and user acquisition.
  • KPIs should be unique to the campaigns.

Influencer Marketing will be a large part of the overall marketing strate

  • A recent Influence 2.0 study shows that influencers will play a role in the overall customer journey through content, engagement and community.
  • It is by engaging influencers in authentic, long-term relationships and creating value within the relationships between influencers and their communities, that CMOs can impact sales, satisfaction, retention and overall customer experience

Campaign Overview

  • Budget of < $10k
  • 10 style influencers created outfit posts featuring the products provided by brand.
  • Influencers shared all posts to their blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter, with full tracking functionality through Stylinity’s Go2Buy platform.
  • The duration of the campaign was 3 months.
