Have you joined the ideas4writers associates scheme yet? Here’s something that might encourage you:
If you manage to sell 1,000 copies of The fastest way to write your book by 30 June 2009 we’ll publish your book free of charge via our i4w2 ethical publishing service!
That includes professional editing, our full publishing service, printing 1,000 copies, and cover artwork that’s yours to keep – we’ll even frame it for you. Your book will be featured on our website, listed on Amazon, made available for all UK bookshops to order, and supplied to Waterstones. You’ll also receive a copy of The Fastest Way to Sell Your Book (not yet published) and we’ll put you in touch with our team of book marketers and PR specialists. Total package worth £2,500 – £3,000.
But there’s more…
We’ll be publishing The fastest way to sell your book later this year and you’ll be able to count sales of that book towards your total too.
This is not a competition or a draw – every associate who sells 1,000 copies by 30 June 2009 (which is less than 3 copies a day) will get their book published. All you have to do is encourage as many people as you can to click on your link. We’re doing all we can at our end to convert those clicks into sales for you.
How the ideas4writers associates scheme works
Sign up with us as an associate at firstname.lastname@example.org (no charge for joining)
We’ll send you a special link that you can add to your website, blog, forum postings, articles, e-books, business cards, email messages, or whatever you like. That link takes people to the sales page for The fastest way to write your book (and The fastest way to sell your book when it is published). If they buy the book from us after clicking on your link, we’ll reward you.
You get £1 for every sale. We’ll double that to £2 a sale if you reach 100 sales in any quarter (the current quarter runs from 1 July to 30 September 2008). And if you reach 1,000 sales by 30 June 2009, we’ll publish your book free of charge.
Once you’ve joined the associates scheme you’ll have access to the associates centre where you can track your clicks and sales and pick up some extra tips on how to encourage people to click on your link and buy our books.
