Sell more books with less effort - even if you suck at marketing!
You would probably think I was crazy.
Or full of sh*t.
I know how it goes. The conventional wisdom says to be a successful author, you:
But that's not what usually happens, is it? What happens is you:
This is considered normal.
But, it doesn't have to be this way.
The reason why you can still fail, despite having a million followers, posting until your fingers bleed and marketing until you weep, is simple:
This is not miserable, or negative - it's a fact.
Think about it - you are one voice in the thousand a potential reader will hear today, and if they don't know you and trust you, the chances of them caring about what you have to say is near zero.
Once you understand that success as an author is not about selling books today, but about creating a system that builds trust over the long-term, a successful career as an author becomes much easier.
So, you can call me crazy or full of sh*t, but this little nugget of wisdom freed me from a corporate job inside three years with almost no social media presence and no paid advertising.
I am nobody special - I worked this out part by accident, part by design - but I did work it out, and it's the underlying principles of my (almost) automated self-publishing system I want to teach you.
Being a teacher at heart, I put all of the principles and practices I have learned over the last few years into the course:

The course is structured into three modules, each containing a mix of HD video lessons and text lessons.
The first module of the course defines what indie publishing is, and how it is the new-normal of publishing.

(value - priceless!)
I love how this bit is usually written in third person when we all know it's the author who wrote it.
So, after several attempts to sound smarter than he really is by writing about himself in the third person, Nige gave up and decided to write like he was chatting to a new friend.
Hi, I'm Nige. Nice to meet you.
I'm closer to 50 than I'd like. I live on the east coast of Australia. I have an awesome wife, two boys that have grown into magnificent men and three granddaughters I spoil outrageously.
I could tell you I've made a bazillion dollars using my super-secret-ninja-book-marketing formula, but that would be lying. I do, however, make a comfortable living doing what I love, I don't answer to anyone (except the wife), and I genuinely want you to succeed because the thought of a fellow creative person dying with their music still in them makes me want to cry.
