Resources

On this page you’ll find my top resources for authors and entrepreneurs. But first I recommend you grab your two FREE AudioBooks from Audible as my gift to you for listening to the Publishing Profits Podcast.

I recommend Secrets of the Six-Figure Author and The Book Marketing Bible to get you started on the right track.

Leadpages

Leadpages: I use LeadPages for quickly and easily creating sales pages, opt-in forms, email list building, video courses, upsell pages, and more. I can’t imagine doing business online without Leadpages. It’s that valuable for my business.

Email Marketing

Aweber: This is my favorite email marketing autoresponder. Your email list is the most valuable long-term marketing asset you can create hands down!

If you haven’t started building your email list yet or it’s not quite big enough, I highly recommend getting a copy of my new book Email Marketing Mastery so you can start building your email list right away. Email Marketing has the highest ROI (Return on Investment) of any online marketing strategy today.

My Favorite Tools

LeadPages is the easiest, fastest and by far the most cost effective way to build landing pages, launch pages, sales pages, and other important pages for your website.

ScreenFlow: (for Mac users) is the screen capture software I use for most of my video tutorials and screenshare videos. (You can see examples on my YouTube channel here).

Audiobooks

Audible: Get your first TWO audiobooks for FREE today when you sign up for an Audible membership.

Cover Designs

Fiverr.com can be a great resource for cheap cover designs.

Books

I’ve written everything I know about publishing and marketing books for you in my books for authors that you can see at Amazon.com/author/business
I would start with these, probably in order:
Secrets of the Six-Figure Author shows you what it takes to earn a full-time income as an author whether self-published or with a publisher, and how to build a team that will take you where you want to go (it’s a lot harder if you try to do it all by yourself!)
The Kindle Writing Bible is full of tips on writing, productivity, market research, coming up with book ideas, structuring your nonfiction books, and more.
The Kindle Formatting Bible provides step by step instructions on how to format your book for Kindle and how to publish your book on Kindle.
The Kindle Publishing Bible gives you the fundamentals of publishing and marketing eBooks for maximum return with minimum investment.
The Book Marketing Bible includes 39 proven marketing strategies that are free or low cost I’ve used to sell over 100,000 books for myself and my publishing clients in the last four years.
Destroy Your Distractions shows you how to get focused on what’s most important to you and how to get more done with less stress.
Schedule Your Success teaches you how to get back control of your time and your life by creating a schedule, routine and strong habits that support your goals and purpose.
Facebook for Business Owners shows you how to build a business and attract new customers using the world’s largest social network.

Microphone

I use the Blue Yeti microphone for most of my audio recording and for the podcast show.

When I’m traveling, I use the Blue Snowball mic since it’s a little smaller, more compact and easy to carry when traveling.

Computer

I use a Macbook Pro. I converted from PC to Mac a few years ago and I’ll never go back to PC! It’s a lot easer to live when you’re not worried about getting computer viruses and all the bugs of using a PC to work.
