I'm at the verge of claiming to be a Canadian so I could open ACX account.
am I clear to proceed?
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 9:32pm On Aug 01, 2019|
You don't need my permission to open an account bro.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by Tickles001(m): 10:00pm On Aug 01, 2019|
I know. I'm asking about the false claim.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 11:17pm On Aug 01, 2019|
It's a risk only you can decide if it's worth taking or not.
All I can say is dont be surprised when you wake up one day and realise they've suspended your account

Made $11,921.86 in July
Happy new month everyone.
So the month of July is finally over and I've gotten my finalized KDP numbers. Unfortunately, my ACX earnings for July is a conservative estimation, I'll have to wait till August month-end when I get the payment invoice from Audible to know my exact numbers...but judging from my royalty rate for June, I suspect I made more in audiobook royalties.
On a good note, I finally surpassed my goal of making $5000+/month in paperback sales alone.
Furthermore, this is my first time earning $11,000+ in 2 consecutive months!
Income Breakdown for July:
KDP (ebook + KENP) = $1638.31
KDP paperback = $5201.55
ACX Audiobook = $5082
Total Earnings = $11,921.86 (N4.3 million)
Goals For August
- Make $10,000/month with KDP ebook and paperback sales alone (went as high as $6839.86 in July)
Yearly 2019 Goal
- Make $20,000/month with my publishing business
Back in January, my yearly goal was a very scary one but as the months have gone by and I'm seeing myself inching closer to it, I'm beginning to believe it's possible. The only difficult bit is being consistent in the number of books I publish every month and doing my best to optimize all of them to perform at their best
How's your publishing going? keep up the good work
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by eliok(m): 5:58pm On Aug 02, 2019|
Sorry I reviewed your book.
You are in wrong keyword.
2. The cover is not too clear
3. Try to pay a mentor man . be less stingy my dear.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by Tickles001(m): 6:56pm On Aug 02, 2019|
Good mentors charge beyond what I can pay.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by eliok(m): 7:03pm On Aug 02, 2019|

|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by eliok(m): 7:05pm On Aug 02, 2019|

That's why I ignored you. Anyway Send me a pm

To perform well in Kindle Publishing, you need to:
1. Be consistent
If your goal is to make $100/month and you've done the math and figured out how many books you need to pull that off, you need to consistently put in effort to create those books. Initially, you may not see results..do not be discouraged. It's like the compound effect, after a while everything will click and you'll start enjoying the fruit of your labor...you can't expect to plant today and reap today..you have to nurture it first.
2. Be focused
It's easy to get distracted by every other business model out there - Affiliate Marketing, dropshipping, palm oil business, cashew nut business, domain flipping etc. You can't afford to be a jack of all trade and master of none. It takes 10,000 hours of continuous work on something to achieve mastery in it. Once you know that business model works, ignore every other thing and focus all your effort on that one thing for sufficient time to start seeing results.
3. Commit to creating quality content
These are the types of content that stand the test of time. You need to make the customer feel that you've given them so much value they owe you a positive review. Don't just do what every other person is doing, go above and beyond. Don't be quick to flood the market with a bunch of crappy books just to make a quick buck..think long term
4. Set goals
How can you expect to get to your destination if you haven't adjusted the sail of your ship to catch the wind that'll take you there? you'll just be drifting aimlessly on the ocean. In the same vein, you need to set specific goals and work out HOW you can achieve those goals. A goal without a deadline is a dream.
5. Be in a mastermind
Being in a mastermind environment will push you to expand your mindset and achieve the impossible. I'll have to be honest, without having a mentor or being in a mastermind with people making 20-30k/month with their publishing business, I wouldn't think making 10k/month would be possible. Instead, i would be very happy with making $1000/month since, compared to most people I would be crushing it. However, I prefer to be in the midst of masters who are far better than me...that will keep me hungry and pushing the boundary of whats possible.
You need to be in the same kind of mastermind to push yourself.
Work with mentors who have achieved the results you want to achieve and you can see (from their visible results) that they actually practice what they preach. Anyone can make claims, only a few actually back up their claims with results.
6. Diversify your portfolio
When I say diversify, I don't mean spread yourself thin across multiple businesses. I mean diversify within publishing. Don't just put all your eggs in one basket (or one niche), once you've dominated a certain niche, spread your tentacles to other niches. Learn those niches, figure out how to be successful in them. Having a diversified portfolio will help you to maintain a fairly consistent income stream instead of having massive fluctuations in your earnings because you're too heavy in a seasonal niche or you have only one book.

When hiring freelancers from upwork always make sure to read their reviews.
- What's their successful project completion rate?
- Do they have good reviews?
- How recent are those reviews?
- Are the reviews from similar jobs you want to hire the freelancers for?
- How old is the account? (You want an account that has been around for a long time because scammers get banned and they have to create new accounts to continue scamming people..an account that has been around for a long time is unlikely to be a scam account, assuming other conditions are satisfied)
These are some of the things you need to look out for when hiring from upwork

HeliosHay:How can any freelancer "successfully" scam anyone there with Upwork's escrow in place?
great tips you've been dropping. Thanks
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 10:30pm On Aug 03, 2019|
Some freelance writers sell you the same manuscript they sold to others. You'll never know until you publish the book and get banned by Amazon for violating someone's copyright.
It almost happened to me when I was new to this business...I was lucky because during a random search on Amazon I found a book that looked very similar to the manuscript I was given...I bought the book, looked through it and realised it was exactly what I was being sold. I never made payment
A few other people weren't so lucky..they lost their money. Ofcuz they can decide to complain to upwork and the freelancer will get banned/suspended and you'll be lucky to get your money back if it's been withdrawn from escrow...the freelancer, on the other hand, will just open another account
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by czarina(f): 10:35pm On Aug 03, 2019|
HeliosHay:I get it though but there are tons of tools like Copyscape and other premium plagiarism checkers to help you deal with that.
Permissible to make such mistakes as a "rookie" but then...
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 10:50pm On Aug 03, 2019|
Copyscape has its limits. There are special characters these scammers can insert in your manuscript to help it evade detection.
One freelancer on Fiverr tried to pull that on me once when I was new to this but it was too suspicious. When I ran it through Copyscape, it showed 0% clean...that immediately set my alarm bells ringing. Nothing is that perfect
I found out on time and demanded my money back...once again I escaped another scam.
You just have to "Shine your eyes" and keep your wits about you in this business
In addition, Copyscape only detect stuff lifted from websites, blogs etc..not stuff lifted from other books
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by czarina(f): 11:10pm On Aug 03, 2019|
HeliosHay:Now that you mentioned it, I think one of them is called "Article Buddy". It scrambles the codes behind the texts and then pass off plagiarized works as "unique".
So, yes, you're right.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by koonbey(m): 10:50am On Aug 04, 2019|
Hi there. Thanks for all the tips.
I have two questions I'd appreciate your help with:
1. What's a good word/page count to target for nonfiction, ceteris parebus. I know there are several variables depending on the niche one is targeting, but I want to have a ballpark figure for some projections.
2. What's the "standard" price to pay freelancers for ebook writing on Upwork?
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 11:30am On Aug 04, 2019|
I always advise beginners to shoot for 10,000 words book. This should give you roughly 60-100 pages depending on how you format it. Going for 10,000 words means you don't invest too much money initially as you're still learning the business and getting a feel for it..as well as, giving the customer some value for their money....no one wants to pay for a 10-20 page long pamphlet. That's first-class ticket to negative review
A 10,000 words book would cost around $100-$300 depending on the quality of the writer and your negotiation skills. For e.g. writers in the Philippines/Bangladesh who don't have a good command of English can perhaps charge a lot cheaper while other more skilful writers (with English as their first language) will tend to charge higher
That being said, my writers (available to blueprint owners and mentees) charge $140 for high-quality 10,000 words. With that, you know precisely what you're getting...certainly not crap
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by koonbey(m): 4:41pm On Aug 04, 2019|
Thank you very much.
Getting access to those writers definitely seems like a real perk.
What about ACX though? What would it cost to get the narration done, on the average?
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 5:03pm On Aug 04, 2019|
If you have access to the ACX platform, you can get cheap quality narrators who charge $30-$50 per finished hour.
Outside of the ACX platform, it's much more difficult as narrators tend to charge upwards of $100 PFH...Unless you're lucky and somehow manage to get good ones on upwork who charge less.

Hey Boss, I am kinda confuse on an image to use on my book Title: Secrets of Academy of Magic
Please, from the images attached, which is great.
I will also appreciate if a link is given to some stock wizard photos. I couldn't get any from Shutterstock.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 11:22pm On Aug 04, 2019|
They all look nice..esp the second one.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by deafeyez: 4:52pm On Aug 05, 2019|
But, what do you have to say about this.
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by HeliosHay(m): 5:41pm On Aug 05, 2019|
This book looks like a fiction book. I don't do fiction publishing so I don't have any experience of what works or what doesn't work.
If I were you, I'd go to places where my audience congregates (e.g. facebook groups, web forums etc.) and do a survey with them..which cover resonates best with them. I'm not your ideal audience so my opinion doesn't really mean anything.
To me, all the cover art look nice
|Re: How To Make $1000+ Each Month Online by deafeyez: 6:40pm On Aug 05, 2019|
HeliosHay:Thanks for the tips.
Although I am not yet one of your mentee you have been so supportive.
