The Final Step – Building A Traffic Generating Powerhouse
You need to build a website.
But this is not just any website with your picture and biography. If you are just starting out and building a name for yourself, let’s face it, nobody cares.
A Website That Gives People What They Want
Now, non-fiction writers have an advantage over fiction writers. This is because non-fiction solves a problem for the reader like fixing their lawnmower in three easy steps.
So, if you’re a fiction writer you will take a page from the non-fiction writer’s playbook and build a website around some information that people want or need.
Let’s say that your book is a murder mystery set on the Caribbean Island of Anguilla. Well then you may want to build a website around Anguilla vacations.
Don’t you think that someone who is interested in vacationing in Anguilla might just buy a book set in Anguilla to read on the beach?
But the important thing about this type of website is that it generates income other than your book sales.
You’d have to sell a lot of books at .99 or even $3.95 to make a commission comparable to a $1,000 hotel booking.
This Is The Key. This Is The Secret Sauce!
With this additional income you can buy advertising, a lot of advertising, for your book and so it serves as self perpetuating marketing engine over the years.
Let’s say that after a few years your website is generating $20,000 a year in passive income. That is a lot of money that you can invest in advertising. Isn’t it?
How many of your competitors do you think are doing this?
That’s right, not many…if any.
Remember, you can make your own book easily. The trick is to make it sell.
So now you can see how important this step is? Can’t you?
Not a webmaster? I know, neither was I.
I didn’t know the first thing about websites. And, in fact the whole thing scared me.
But, Site Build It showed me how to build a website that draws traffic in ten easy steps and they can do the same for you.
