There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book is fresh in its style and in its information. He literally leads the reader through an Oz of marvelous postings and possibilities.
He talks about "Book Ecosystems," "Back Ends Devices," and "Plugging in to Your Tribe." Have you ever heard the terms "Eclectic Input," "Event Jacks" and "Review Jacking"? Neither did it, until I read this book, and now I wish I had known about them before. What do they mean? Well, you're just going to have to the read the book to find out.
Great thing too is that his book is a real easy read, despite the foreign terms. It's outlined beautifully in a large free type, with lots of white space interspersed with eye catching headlines, and boxes full of thought jogging information and advice.
Ok, I'll be a little bit more specific.
*For instance" He outlines "Book Chapter Types" with horizontal charts that emphasize an ACTION term on the left, and then ACTION to be taken on the right. For example The term BIAS is in the left column and then to the right a thin blue line separates the term from the explanation. Maybe you have to see it to appreciate it, but the graphic is quite effective in communicating his point.
The chapters are short and the print is large so don't be afraid if I mention Chapter 50 through 70. Some of his best work is in that section. Here he is first talking Taxes and Publishing. Then David Favor moves into "The Daily Do" and "Kung Fu." Yes, he can be quite inventive with his chapter headings, but they make sense in context.
Just wait until you learn about "Hub Books," "Spoke Books" and "Rim Products." Whew! The terms scared me at first, but after gaining his understanding they are very much my friends now.
If you are trying to understand the business of sharing and selling your books, these chapters might be just for you. Did you know there are "Hidden Compensation Killers" in the Kindle Market? Do you understand any part of "Liability Law" and "Property Ownership"? You will after you read Chapters 58-60.
Don't let some of the Freddy Kruger-like terms scare you. David Favor does a pretty good job of bringing the monsters down to an understandable and workable size. He also shows you how to make "Massive Kindle Sales," "Escape the Big Setback," and do "Beautiful Business."
David Favor's Beautiful Business Codex is beautiful with its design to communicate, and understandable critical thinking points of fact and view points. I'm digging deeper and reading it again, and then my books are going to make a lot of money!
The Concept of the Kindle Bootstrap Process
Essentially, once you get over the 100 sales mark, the ebook you have written will begin to start selling on its own. The beauty of this Kindle Bootstrap system is that the techniques that are presented in this book require very little, if any money. This means that you can promote your ebook with little to no cost while focusing your efforts on making sales. What follows is a basic breakdown review of each major concept in Chapter 55.
This is an interesting way to have potential customers purchase the book. Here, Favor advises that you use a specific review publishing method. Essentially, you have someone review your book on the listed site that is mentioned. In this manner, another person will offer a positive review on a specific chapter of your book. Favor explains how you can repeat this process to keep it fresh.
This simple, but powerful process uses a tried and true method of publishing reviews in Amazon, then having a link back to your book. In this manner, you can write one, two or more reviews each day while adding a link back to your book in each review. Over a short period of time, you can build up a tremendous number of reviews that thousands of people will see. However, you need to be sure that your reviews are honest, purchasing the item helps tremendously, and that placing the link has at least a tangential quality to the subject matter of the review. Favor goes on to show how Soft Plugs can help augment your reviews.
Here, you find out how swapping reviews with another author can help showcase your book as well while helping out a fellow writer. The swapping goes beyond simply purchasing another book however. Inside this chapter, you will learn how to swap interviews and content so that you are helping each other while building up your own presence on Amazon.
This is certainly one of the most interesting methods available as you help out those who may want to read other materials by offering short reviews yourself. This is a powerful method of providing honest, clear content while also promoting your book as well.
The idea behind the 7 Step Kindle Bootstrap is to build up in a relatively short period of time a tremendous presence in Amazon and other sites which can help the sales of your own book. David Favor explains in detail just how this method can be accomplished in a clear, concise manner. The Kindle Bootstrap is certainly one of the best means for promoting your own works on Kindle while spending very little of your own money.
When you are doing something creative like blogging, reading, or designing your own beautiful business, any siphoning of creative energy can be fatal to a day's work. Dave argues that you can put this aspect of your life on autopilot. You know that you will need 230 diapers each month for your baby, so why not just get them with a couple of clicks with the mouse? Better yet, you know that you are going to consume bottled water each month, just order in bulk through Amazon Prime. Toothpaste, music, books, or anything that I need to sustain my life or provide me with creative inspiration.
This hack will save you time and effort. Thank you David.
