This week we asked our community on Facebook to answer this question: What revenue streams have you created for your author business? Here’s what they had to say:
David Evans: This is a big question I’ve been working on for quite some time. I’ve finally found a good strategy that is working for me. The key for me is to lead with my blog,focused on a need that my books and coaching provide. I’m a relationship counselor and mediator mediator and the service I offer is helping people resolve difficult relationships and conflicts. The revenue stream comes from my counseling, but the blog is invaluable, because it leads people to my counseling service. My blog is for Psychology Today, and the name of it is, “Can’t We All Just Get Along?”
Don Polley: Speaking engagements and book sales online link and in person. I can also accept debit/credit payments with smartphone. Not rich yet but it is a start! My name is Don Polley and I am an author-speaker-generational consultant. http://donpolley.com/
Mike Loomis: I’ve recently added a “cafeteria” of low-cost products and services to build my recurring revenue. – Mike Loomis, Writer and author coach, www.MikeLoomis.CO
Brandi Winans: Online book sales, a few free speaking engagements to sell my books or programs, a mail out brochure on the different curriculum I’ve written along with info on my books.
