An Open Letter To Helioshay by Crayfish09: 8:53pm On Jan 10, 2020
I am not very active on this forum but having seen some of your contributions regarding the kindle publishing business, I felt compelled to go through your posts and learn as much as possible from your posts. As I went through them, however, I noticed that you were relentlessly posting the same thing over and over again in a bid to attract students/customers and to be honest, I think it is okay to demand money but it is possible that you are mistaking the British environment for Nigeria.

In as much as I believe you are truly earning what you are posting around, I have to admit that 90% of people wouldn't pay a 100k for a mentorship to somebody they don't know online. Why?

1) people get scammed of money as little 30k online and they never get to recover the money. With this in mind, how many people do you expect to risk losing a 100k in this economy? This is Nigeria and not the UK

2) As I have stated earlier, this is Nigeria. Most of the people on this forum are probably new graduates, underemployed people and undergraduates. Do you expect them to sell their laptops for your mentorship?

3) I am not doubting your credibility in any way but let us think from the perspective of an average Nigerian. This is the age where virtually any picture can be doctored online and whats worse is that the kdp reports page doesn't give anything to prove that the dashboard is yours. Secondly, the average Nigerian would ask, 'why would he be spending hours on Nairaland spamming pages with the same content over and over again just to make 20-200k once in a blue moon when he is actually making over 3 million naira every month? An alternative, which would save you a lot of time for a little change is there for you. Why can't you use it? I'm talking about NAIRALAND ADS. Trust me, people trust what they see on ads more than what you are doing here.

No, I am not saying that it is wrong for you to charge money for your mentorship. Even the richest entrepreneurs and dating coaches charge peanuts that they don't even need to teach people. This is because most people only give value to things they actually pay for. That is why when I use free ebooks promotions (yes, I'm into KDP too though I am far far below your level), I hardly get reviews but once up to 5 people buy the book, I get at least 1 review.

Dear helioshay, as a fellow Nigerian with good intentions, I would advise you to break your fees into 2 parts. 50k for the commencement of the mentorship and then after your customers have learnt to a certain extent and have made a few bucks, they pay another 50k and then you conclude the exercise

Thank you for your selflessness on this forum and I honestly wish you much more success in your publishing/mentorship business.

The mentorship is very expensive because I have to painstakingly go through every process with the student via skype video calls. This process is not very scalable as I am limited by the number of students I can handle without burning out and neglecting my own business.

This is exactly why I came out with the kindle blueprint and the keyword research video. These resources essentially summarized all I teach the students in my mentorship. The video shows the practical aspect of it while the blueprint goes deep into the individual strategies I use to publish books on Amazon.

The blueprint is already significantly cheaper compared to the mentorship..so is the research video.

With regards to the mentorship program, I cannot do it at the moment as I dont have the freedom I used to have considering I'm doing my NYSC.

People who are interested in making money online with kindle publishing simply have to follow the strategies and rinse and repeat with each book.

If anything isnt clear they can message me on WhatsApp or email me and I can assist in any way I can

That being said, committing to multiple students for 6 months plus and doing countless video calls is not an efficient use of my time presently

No no no you don't get me.

Charging a million naira for your mentorship is perfectly okay since you will be teaching people how to become millionaires. If you charge 10k the same people will Mock you.

What I am trying to say is that you should try to consider accepting payments in instalments to encourage more patrons. It pains me to see you posting things over and over again. Alternatively, just buy nairaland ads and save yourself from the unnecessary stress.
