Power Marketing His Best Seller
Ray is the best-selling Amazon author whose book, How to Write Copy that Sells, has generated over $300 million in revenue between book sales and the original copy he has created for other companies and clients. He also has a new book out, Permission to Prosper, which we will talk about today.
With a free+shipping sales funnel, Ray ships books to those who purchase his books then use their emails for future marketing. He uses his podcast, email list, and YouTube channel to funnel people to his book. Influencers started buying his book for their groups, which has also boosted book sales.
Ray says that it’s more important to consistently sell a book than to make a big launch and never sell it again. In addition, this consistent marketing makes more of an impact on your message and grows your tribe even further. “Don’t get caught up in being on the bestseller list your first week, month or year. It’s more important to keep selling books month after month.
