One week ago, I opened this blog and wrote my first blog post. I have done a lot of reading and investigation. I have read a part to classic book on the topic: ‘The 4 hour work week’ from Thimoty Ferris.
I never read it before and I already had it from 2011 on my bookshelf. I discovered it by coincidence when I was setting up the WordPress blog and writing the first post. I have read a big part now. I can recommend it to everyone to read it and get into the right mindset. The book is originally released in 2006 (!) but it still contains a lot of valuable information if you are new in pursuing your dream of having a passive income / online business.
One of the main advises is to outsource as much as possible. Today, in 2017, this becomes even more within reach of the beginning entrepreneur with sites like Fiverr.com where you can get thinks done from prices starting at $5,-.
Examples in what you can outsource on Fiverr.com are
- setting up your wordpress site
- designing your website
- designing logo’s
- improving the speed of your site for higher rankings in Google
I already setup a blog before. In my previous blog I did everything myself. I had (and have) a fulltime job and still tried to everything myself. My main advise for you is, if you have some money, please start with outsourcing as soon as possible. This will safe you time, you will get things done more quickly and the quality will be probably better.
System of passive income
Getting a passive income is about getting a system up and running for you. You should be owning the system instead of the system owning you and taking all your time. You should be working ON your business instead of IN your business. That was the main reason for selecting my first training.
Online training how to publish ebook on kindle
Last week I bought an online training. The subject was totally new for me. About publishing an ebook on Amazon.com / kindle. My first thought was, but I do not have time to write a book. And all similar thoughts, like I cannot write, it will very hard to get a book published on Amazon.com and it will not sell anyway because there is too much competition.
The seller has a very selling squeeze page to sell his product. For me it at first glance it was a bit to pushy, but I decided to ignore it and go for it. The main reason for going for it was during the squeeze page. He convinced at least me you can outsource the whole process. From book cover, to actually writing the book for you.
Good first impression
After starting on the training I was positively surprised. It contains very clear and structural step by step approach. You have training videos and you can download the PDF documents with the text from the videos. It contains 21 lessons and some bonuses. I did the first 5 lessons and both my book cover as my first ebook are being produced as I write this. I expect to receive the first versions of both before the end of the working week. I am very curious about the quality.
The hard part is getting your ebook sold and the training covers this a lot. The first part of the training is also choosing the right niche, book size, price and analysing the competition. The biggest part will be regarding the amazon promotion and getting your ebook in the high positions.
Like promised last week, I will inform you guys about the results. Good or bad I will share it. And if the results of this training are satisfying to me I will share the (affiliate) link to the training also.
Until know I am positive and happy following and implementing the training. In the next post I will share what I did so far and how I did it. I will decide if the training was worth it, after the book is published at least one month on kindle. The writer of the training tries to get the costs of the book back in the first month and then enjoying a passive income the whole lifetime of the ebook.
Are you still reading? This means you are a die hard and you will succeed in reaching your goals 🙂
Hope to get you back soon.
