How to Crowd-fund Your Next Book: Free Video Training

Ever thought about writing a book? Of course, you have; we all have. So why haven’t you done it yet? Maybe because you thought you didn’t have the resources. But you actually do.

Maybe it’s a project you’re already working on —fitting it in between other priorities, late at night or on the weekends. Or maybe it’s something you plan on getting to “eventually.”

Either way, I’m willing to bet there lurks in the back of your mind a fantasy about becoming a published author.

Whenever you read stories of famous authors getting their first, six-figure advance, your heart starts to race. You begin to dream.

But then reality sets in…

You hear celebrity authors tell talk show hosts about the years of rejection that they went through before a publisher was even willing to give them a shot.

And you remember a statistic you once heard that said most books sell fewer than 1000 copies, and never cover the costs of the first print run. 

You wonder whether you have the time, resources, and fortitude to put yourself through all of that — all for something that might never even happen.

So what do you do?

Do you let your dream of writing and publishing a book die? Do you consign yourself to a life of hard work and rejection? Are you doomed to be a starving, unknown artist for the rest of your life?

Maybe, just maybe, there’s a third option. (Hint: there is.) You can pick yourself and invite a community to join.

And I’m excited to say a friend of mine knows a thing or two about this. And I’ve asked him to do a free, live webinar for my readers.

About the event

Danny Iny is the guy behind Firepole Marketing, author of Engagement from Scratch! (an Amazon best-seller), and a manifesto-turned-crowd-funded-phenomenon called Naked Marketing.

In addition to being a pretty savvy marketer, he’s also a super-friendly, really nice guy. Which is why he’s agreed to put on a special training event to teach you everything you need to know to crowd-fund your book project and turn it into a best seller.

If you’ve been waiting for some publisher to come along and pick you, it’s time to stop stalling and put your work out there. And Danny is going to show you the way.

A no-pitch webinar (seriously)

This is going to be fun, and more importantly, it’s going to be totally free. No cost to register and nothing for sale in the presentation.

This isn’t some clever way to bait-and-switch effort you into buying some expensive teaching program. There will be absolutely NO PITCH at the end of this training; all you have to give is up is your email.

Danny and I have done this sort of thing before, and I can assure you it will be worth your time. All you have to do is register and show up on Thursday, November 29th, 2012 at 3pm Eastern.

Register now for this free, live training: How to Crowd-fund, Write, and Self-publish a Best Seller.

Have a question?

Danny and I want to make this training as valuable as possible, but we need your help.

If you have any questions about crowd-funding, self-publishing, or anything else related to writing a book, bring them to the event. IF you can’t make it, enter them in the comments of this post, and we’ll do our best to answer them.

Whether you can make it or not, go ahead and register. If we’re able to do a recording (there’s no guarantee of this, so really try to make it to the event if you can), we’ll email it to everyone who registers.

Note: This event has already happened. You can watch the replay below or click here to download the worksheet.
