Steve Dotto is a TV presenter turned YouTube businessman, and he reveals the secrets of his success in using YouTube in this interview.
An eBook aggregator service takes your eBook and submits it to multiple eBook stores, such as Apple, Nook and Kobo. The reason why these services are useful is it means you don’t have to manage several different system dashboards and in some cases it allows you to get into stores where there isn’t even a direct route for self-publishers into that store (for example Google Play).
I must admit that I thought Smashwords and Draft2Digital were the only major eBook aggregator companies, but after joining the International Indie Authors Facebook group, I heard about a whole host of new and international companies, primarily PublishDrive, Streetlib and Pronoun. I’ve decided to try and get representatives from these companies on to the show to learn a bit more about them. This week I talk to Kinga Jentetics from PublishDrive.
It’s a new year and it’s time to get that hit book published. I know a lot of people have “publish a book” as a New Year’s goal. So I thought I would do a quick summary of the advice I would give someone who has this resolution, from my own humble experience.
In this show I talk to Alisa Meredith, who is an expert and speaker on Pinterest and is, to my mind, the world authority on Pinterest’s advertising platform, Promoted Pins.
In this show I discuss how I have started using a new technique using tailored audiences to allow me to start making successful use of Twitter Adverts.
While listening back to the audio of the last show I realised that I have gone a bit native in the world of Marketing Buzzwords, happily talking about “Return-On-Investment Rates” with no extra explanation as to what that means. So I’d thought I’d do a quick show on explaining this and some of other business/sales/marketing related terms and what they all mean.
In this show I talk to the author of “How to Get A Meeting With Anyone”, Stu Heinecke, about what he calls Contact Marketing. This is where you focus on a small number of customers/influencers and personalise campaigns towards them. The Return on Investment of this can be amazing.
Well I’ve completed NaNoWrimo again! 50,000 words of a first draft written in November. But more significant than that is that it is the final book in my three book Magpies and Magic series. So now I am faced with a common problem : what to work on next. In this show I discuss the options and my thinking as to which to use.
In this show I talk to David Neal, who is someone I met on now defunct #futurechat publishing chat. He has self-published the appBook Alice Winks and has quite a large amount of experience with Richer Media books, that is those books that contain more than just text and pictures. They can contain interactive elements (that is choices), videos and other graphical elements.
I’d heard about Dave Chesson and Kindlepreneur quite some time ago, but have always been slightly put off by companies with Kindle in the title, as they have tended to be get-rich-quick schemes. However I heard an interview Dave Chesson gave on the EOFire podcast, and with a recommendation from another friend, decided to have Dave on the show. It turns out Dave knows a lot about SEO, and Amazon SEO in particular!
