Today’s guest is Tom Corson-Knowles.
Tom is an entrepreneur, blogger, and bestselling author of more than 20 books. He started his first business at age 13, and by the time he graduated from business school at age 22, he was earning a full-time income from his entrepreneurial endeavors.
Tom is the founder of EbookPublishingSchool.com and TCK Publishing.
Tom’s bestselling books include The Book Marketing Bible, The Kindle Publishing Bible, Secrets of the Six-Figure Author, and Schedule Your Success, among others.
Tom is often quoted as saying, “You can achieve all of your dreams as an author if you’re willing to master the three key areas of authorship: writing, publishing, and marketing.”
The company’s goal is to help every single client earn a full-time income as an author. TCK Publishing specializes in marketing for both fiction and non-fiction authors to help get their messages and stories out to millions of readers all over the world.
Tom then decided to share the keys to success he learned along his journey to becoming financially independent through his books, educational video courses, and seminars. Today, he teaches new and established authors and writers on how to earn a full-time income by becoming successful writers, publishers, and marketers.
EbookPublishingSchool.com is a free video training program for any writer or author who wants to learn how to successfully write, publish, and market their own books online.
Tom is also the founder of TCK Publishing, an independent publisher who specializes in publishing and marketing eBooks and digital audiobooks online.
Here are the fun nuggets from the interview:
Fun nugget #1: As an aspiring author, you are missing out on a quarter of the market if you don’t publish an ebook
Fun nugget #2: Follow the 80/20 principle which is going to lead you to the ebook route
Fun nugget #3: Your #1 job as an author is to create fans
Fun nugget #4: Be generous with your book, because to build your fans, you are really trying to get people to spend time with you (rather than getting them to spend money on you)
Fun nugget #5: Just GO (when it comes to starting your book); there will be no “perfect” time to start
Fun nugget #6: Series are more profitable than writing just one book
Fun nugget #7: Focus on what you can control (your activity on a daily basis) rather than things that you can’t necessarily control (such as FaceBook likes, etc.)
Fun nugget #8: Research about your target market is right at your fingertips in the form of Amazon reviews
