    Nicholas, Where do you promote your articles in Facebook? You posts on a page or join groups and give value first? Also, do you use your personal account to promote or page account. I'm soon starting a blog and would like to promote my content on Facebook :)

    Very interesting journey! Good luck and i am sure you are gonna achieve your goals.

    I have not seen if you have mentioned it, but in what niche is your content/book?

    I use my Facebook page and yes sometimes I share my articles to niche relevant groups. I also use facebook ads to boost the content. However, I do not buy new followers. Never. All of my new fans are organically gained that means they read my article and then liked the page on their own. If you are just starting out, I can honestly tell you that you dont even need a website. Its good to have it of course but the social media fanpages are more than enough. Works wonders

    Thanks man. I am in the "relationships" niche.

    Admins of groups don't ban you for posting links on their groups or You spent some time on a group and provide value?

    Always first create a relationship. That means you post few articles (or excerpts) without any link. No website, no fanpage, nothing. Just a great content. Do it regularly so the people in the group know you and like your work. After a while you can include a link to your fanpage or website. Don't overuse the group, though. Be natural, friendly. Don't spam. This is a way that worked for me

    LAUNCH EXECUTED
    UPDATE 4/7/2019

    Current Numbers
    Facebook - 29 685 fans (+ 1 709)
    Instagram - 5 741 followers (+ 1 305)
    Email list - 1 833 subscribers (+ 275)

    Time has come, guys.

    4 days ago I launched a presale of the book to my email list. Books haven't been printed yet as I had a delay finishing the writing. They should come in in about 7-10 days from now. However, I realized I could easily start selling it already as my audience is pretty warmed up. I have been talking about the incoming book launch for a couple of months already so they were looking forward to it.

    I sent one email on Wednesday evening.
    Within just a few minutes, orders started coming in.
    I have never seen anything like that before.
    I can't even explain how excited I felt at that moment.
    It was undoubtedly a first product launch of mine as big as this one.


    EARNINGS SO FAR

    Books sold: 334

    Earnings: $5,010
    Earnings per day: $1,252.25

    Book is currently selling at a discounted presale price 13 USD (+ 2 USD for a shipping).

    I don't count my expenses and a final profit yet as there's a couple of days of the presale period remaining. After it ends, I'll count all my numbers and give you know what was the pure profit without the print and shipping costs. So what do you think? As it's been only 4 days since I sent a first email to my list I am really excited to see how many books I actually sold this fast.

    It's important to say that I sent the preorder link ONLY to my email list. No other followers know about the option to preorder the book already. I'll announce it tomorrow to all of my followers. (35 000 followers across social media profiles at this moment.)

    I honestly believe I'll sell all of the incoming 1000 copies within just a month from now.
    Geez. I love these numbers.
    I basically spent this entire day refreshing the page with statistics every couple of minutes just to see new money coming in =D

    I'll give you all know how it goes...

    Have a great day!!

    25% as of now. New orders rolling in all day long so I guess it'll be 30-40% in the end. We'll see
