The best part? You can forget about those “scammy” or “sleazy” marketing tactics that make readers run for the hills and learn the 3-step author marketing system that:
If you’re an author, blogger, or writer, you’ll see how simple it is to learn these systems, even if you’re a confirmed techno-phobe and introvert who HATES selling – and even if you don’t have your first book written yet (we’ll show you how to do that too).
I’ll show you how to put your entire marketing system on autopilot – and give you detailed launch blueprints to help you hit the top of the charts – so you can focus on what’s important to you (writing more books, spending time with your loved ones, sky-diving…).
But don’t just take my word for it…
While I can’t guarantee you’ll get the same results (or any results whatsoever) – nobody can promise this and be telling the truth – some of the strategies I teach in Your First 10,000 Readers helped these authors turn casual readers into committed, paying fans. And now you can learn these strategies too.
It might sound complicated, but it’s not…
Your First 10,000 Readers is a unique and effective system to attract more readers, sell more books, and grow your author platform in a scalable and sustainable way.
It’s designed to help you build trust and communicate directly with your readers – so you can sell more books and build your author career without having to rely on anyone else. I’ll get to the full details in a second – but first, a little backstory…
Hi, Nick Stephenson here. I’m a bestselling fiction and non-fiction author – and I help other authors find their first 10,000 readers. I’m the guy the folks at the Self-Publishing Podcast, The Creative Penn, SideHustleNation, Author Marketing Club, the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), the Rocking Self-publishing Podcast, and the UK group at the International Thriller Writers (ITW) used to help teach their audience about selling and marketing books, growing their audience, and finding freedom in their lives.
That’s why you’ll probably be surprised that I used to hate the thought of marketing and self-promotion. You see, when I first got started in this business, I saw how other authors were marketing themselves – using pushy “buy my book!” language and scammy tactics – and I felt like I needed to take a hot shower. It didn’t feel right.
But after almost a year of writing and publishing books, and still nowhere near the sales I needed, I knew I had to do something. I saw other authors’ books performing way ahead of mine, and I thought to myself: “I know my books are at least as good as these – if only people knew they existed.”
And: “I don’t get many reviews, but when I DO – people tell me they love my books. Why can’t more people see them?” I was so frustrated.
But I didn’t want to copy what other authors were doing to market themselves. I had to figure out another way. So I did! The secret is… there is no secret. All you need to be successful selling anything online is a way to attract potential readers, then convert those potential readers into loyal (paying) fans. And, most importantly, building your career – long term – without resorting to scammy tactics.
Once I learned to focus on the right things (and ignore everthing else) my entire life changed. You can see just how this approach affected my results in the graph above.
I remember one very cold morning in February, I checked my sales reports before heading off to work. I’d made more money while I was asleep than I was going to make all day shackled to a desk.
A few short months later, I quit to write full time. Now, I get to spend all day doing what I love, with the people I love. Thanks to this hard work, I was finally able to quit my day job and move my family out of our cramped apartment. Now, I get to spend all day with the people I care about, and I can write when it suits me.
If you could do the same, what would that mean for you?
Never worrying about getting reviews, or securing advertising, or making sales. Being in complete control of your career and never having to rely on anyone else. Because for me, it means more than I can ever put down in words. And, as a writer, that’s a pretty big deal.
Should I spend more time on social media? Should I do book signings? Where can I find advertisers who will actually help me grow my audience? Are my prices too low or too high? How can I get more reviews? Why is nobody subscribing to my mailing list? What should I be focusing on?
And, most importantly, how can I create meaningful and long-lasting relationships with REAL readers who will buy my work? Cue brain overload…
Do you spend too much time checking your sales dashboard? Do you waste hours of your time trying to figure out social media? I know I did. At least, until I figured out what actually works and shifted my focus. Once I did this, my books sales exploded – giving me a six-figure income that earns me revenue and new readers 24/7. I haven’t looked back.
And guess what? I’m going to show you exactly how you can too. No “fluffy bunny” thinking here, only proven, ethical, and easy-to-replicate marketing techniques that will boost your visibility on the ebook retailers and grow your author platform – putting you in direct control of your success.
Nothing feels better than seeing sales coming in overnight and every single day – without having to lift a finger. When readers email you to tell you how much they love your work – begging you to get the next book out… it’s the best feeling in the world.
You know why? Because you get to see the positive impact your work has on the world. And the extra money in your pocket is a nice bonus too. Plus, in addition to reaping the rewards myself – here’s some results from other authors following some of my strategies:
“I've gone from 180 subscribers to almost 3500. Also, I used your launch strategy for my latest mystery and I sold over 200 ebooks in one day. I actually hit #4 in hot new releases for Private Investigator books.”
“Since putting Nick's system in place it's been night & day in comparison. My books have received over 50 four and five star reviews within 48 hours of release, sales have spiked and the books have appeared on their category best-seller lists.”
“my sales have more than quadrupled. In fact, I went from selling 3 books per week - to 10-12 books per day and that was just in the first couple of days. It is now one month later, or thereabouts. I am now selling (actual sales and KU sales combined) 90 - 120 books per day and that number seems to keep going up! I am amazed and truly grateful.”
“My mailing list has grown from around 100 to almost 3,000 in under two months. I get 35-70 sign ups DAILY and the click through rate on the emails is awesome. My sales have INCREASED due to huge about of traffic of drawing in. I'd HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone looking to make SERIOUS changes to their marketing. Nick is the real deal and I can't thank him enough. You rock dude!”
REASON #1: No more wasted hours with trial and error. The system I will show you will grow your audience and show you what works when it comes to selling books. And once you’ve set it up, it will run on autopilot, meaning you will see results 24/7 with minimal maintenance.
REASON #2: More readers and more visibility = more sales = more revenue = more freedom! If you aim to write full time, or to grow your business, this system will get you there.
REASON #3: You don’t need to be a technical wizard. I will take you through everything step by step, in extreme detail, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not it will work for you.
