Just be mindful you have to ship the physical book out, it wont end up at $2
Yep. Customers will pay 15 bucks plus the shipping of course
I wouldnt be surprised if you only get 200 orders from those 800 interested people. I think that would be an alright rate, sono reason to call it the worst case But I hope that it works out even better though of course!
law of avarages is 10%.
10% of 500 = 50 sales.
Following. Love the value and approach you take. Good luck with the book.
Wow 2$ per copy is pretty cheap, how many pages does it have? (sorry if you already answered it somewhere I've must missed it).
I don’t want you to give out your idea but if you can give us an idea what kind of book are you trying to promote? Is it like a guide or a story?
Also, how many pages are you planning to copy for $2 per book?
Yeah I don't depend solely on the waiting list. 200 sold copies in general would be bad.
It's not that easy, my friend.
Based on this law you might say I'll sell 3000 copies. There's 30 000 followers across social media platforms. That won't probably happen.
Thanks man. Appreciated
The book is about 160 pages long = 80 leaves.
Neither. It's partly educational and partly a collection of the most popular thoughts I've published.
I don't mind giving out the niche as this type of writing is very difficult to copy though I won't reveal the exact name of my website. I'm in the Relationships niche and I was significantly inspired by the ThoughtCatalog publishing company and their books. They sell both digital and print books. However, I created my own style of writing and currently I am about to sell print copies only.

Just a quick update, guys. There's not many new things. I add new content to my social media profiles everyday. I promote it. I collect email addresses. I offer people to sign up for the waiting list. Trying to be in touch with my followers as often as possible. I answer questions. I am kind and helpful to all of them. It's effort, man. I mean like... I probably spend at least 10-15 hours a week on this project. Maybe even more. It's the only way to win this game, though.
I am very interested in chatbots now. Chatbots seem to me as a golden opportunity. The same opportunity as an email was 25 years ago and Google Adwords 20 years ago. Therefore, I started to educate myself about it. Hopefully I'll be able to use them efficiently in few weeks from now. We'll see.
Launch is coming as well.
I'll try to finish and prepare everything before the end of March. In April I'd like to start selling the book.
Geez I'm really excited.
Will they like it? Will they buy it? Will I be successful? I believe in it! =D
Have a great weekend
I agree with 5 or 10 % because most people are say stuff and don't do stuff.
Wishing you the best in your Journey. I have one question. For instagram what kind of content you post ? pictures,quotes, caption ?
Yeah thats true. I dont depend only on the waiting list though
Thanks man. I do quotes and excerpts from my book. I actually copied this method from a successful author who sold over 5000 copies this way. He has a similar amount of followers as I do therefore I am very excited to see how well I'll do
Have a good luck, buddy! I am a writer myself, although I was once thinking about a different direction - Kindle. Unfortunately, my progress stopped at writing the book that I intended to sell. Never got to the grinding part of actually promoting it (had other, more pressing issues). But with your success perhaps I'll be motivated to do something about it as well
Thanks man, really appreciated. Yeah its a lot of work indeed. Writing a book is a huge effort on it own. Plus doing all the advertising and social media and so on... Many hours. Though it's worth it of course!
When do you plan to release the book?
Amazing journey dude! Following
This is really interesting. I wish you luck and can't wait to see the numbers once you start selling.
Your way of sketching plan is really appreciated. Quite motivating as well
Keep updating your earnings

Sorry for not updating lately. So much work! Geez. I'm finishing the book these days and the print shall start right next week. I'm excited. There's over 1330 people on my waiting list. I hope I'll sell at least 200-300 copies immediately in the first week after the launch. I guess I'll be able to launch it in the middle of April. It took me longer than I expected but it doesnt matter anymore. Let's see where this goes! Wish me luck as my goal is to sell 1000 copies by the end of May. That means 15.000 USD in book sales. I'll use majority of it to further expand and attract new followers. It'd be nice to sell 5000 copies this year haha =D
Have a good day
