    Hi Jim,

    Nice checklist, but you forgot the most important part…the marketing. Without marketing a book(or any other product for that matter) is like a tree in the forest that falls and nobody hears it.

    You must have a marketing checklist to complete this. 8) I know you do if you have a couple of dozen best sellers.

    Thanks

      Hey Rod,

      You’re right… this is the “Write a Best-Seller” Checklist

      The “Sell Your Book” Checklist is a different checklist 😉

    Hello Jim thank you for always finding better ways to do things and see them to completion. Thank you for your emails they are most encouraging. I like your list and hope to make some time to actually use it. I will send it to my son John, who at one time stated he wanted to write a book. I am a retired veteran and am enjoying this day and many others like this. You and your family have a great week.

    Hello Jim…I am really encourage by your own very words and I must confess that you are really good at what you do….

    But there is this problem I want you to solve for me…
    I want to purchase your (HOW TO WRITE AND PUBLISH YOUR EBOOK IN AS LITTLE AS 7DAYS).

    So the problem I have is that my Country which is Nigeria the west African part of Africa is not listed in your payment page of your website where the ebook was advertise which would have been easy for me to make the e-payment for the ebook.

    Please I would want you to look into this matter for me with all due respect….Thanks Jim once again for your marvelous and inspiring support.

      Hi Inyang,

      I’m sorry ClickBank doesn’t accept orders from Nigeria. I will forward your concern to them, but I don’t think there is much else I can do on that … sorry 🙁

    Professor Jim,

    Thanks again. You are a class act to follow.

    Question: By the way, when you sold out your ‘how to videos’ at a discount, your short sales video showed you in great shape. That was quite a makeover from previous videos where you looked run down and overworked (you were wearing red). How did you do that? Did the navy seal, Stew Smith, from your Webinar King video, have something to do with that?

    Anyway, ‘The “Sell Your Book” Checklist, would be an nice Christmas present for your students (just a thought).

    Thanks for all that you do for us!

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks 🙂

      I’ve been working really hard on physical fitness… in fact, have a 1/2 marathon in Richmond, VA this weekend. Yes, Stew Smith had a lot to do with it, along with my friend Ray Burton.

      I’m working on putting my marketing checklist into a form you guys could use 🙂

    Hi Jim

    As always you come up trumps, the check list is so useful, using it along with your training from your 7 Day eBook course to get my eBooks on line in time for Christmas.

    Many thanks.

    Jim, I would like to see more specific steps needed to take in the actual marketing of the ebooks. How do you build your list? How do you promote the product? Whst’s needed prior to, during, and after launch? Once # 1 on Amazon or Kindle or both, how do you keep it there?
