So, the culmination of several months of work finally hits the streets today. Selling Online: A Beginner’s Guide is my first book that hasn’t been self-published, and I was even paid an advance by Need 2 Know books for writing it … whooo hooo! I’m celebrating by offering a free signed copy to one lucky commenter, and if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning just leave me a message below.
I’m really pleased with the way it’s turned out and am now keen to find out what people think of it. I’ve also learnt much about the publishing process, how to work with guidelines and the requirements of crafting something that fit’s a specific word count – it’s not as easy I’d thought it would be.
The book is written with the newbie online seller in mind, but with chapters that also look at how to price a product for profit and the tax and legal implications of doing business online, it’s also got lots of information for the seasoned online entrepreneur. There’s even a free set of downloads that will help do all the calculations needed to make sure the sums add up.
If you know of someone who is just starting out with their online sales adventures why not give them a shove and tell them to grab a copy, it might just save them from making some horrendous mistakes where they end up losing money, instead of gaining it.
