Will you see how I self-publish a book on Amazon Kindle and paperback with CreateSpace in less than 2 hours? With now 10+ books self-published on Amazon Kindle at http://jerry.tips/ureadme which are also available in print on demand format through CreateSpace, I am honored to quickly show you how to make the final step to getting a book self published today using Kindle Direct Publishing at https://kdp.amazon.com/ along with https://www.createspace.com/. The best part is that once the books are available in these formats, I can then upload audio versions to Audible which are currently making more than twice as much revenue! See how easy it is to get the title done, write the description, pick a few keywords, and finish the book production process. If you need help with the formatting for Kindle, visit https://kdp.amazon.com/help/topic/A17W8UM0MMSQX6. For help with the book cover, visit https://kdp.amazon.com/help/topic/A1DHGMW609HBI8. Hiring a freelancer out of my partners https://jerrybanfield.com/partners/ or on Fiverr can make this process much easier as I explain in the class especially if you prefer to dictate the books like I do. Combining freelancer help with formatting, cover art, and transcriptions with GoTranscript at https://gotranscript.com/r/61527 makes it easy for me to just make a video class today, get the audio transcribed, and then send it to Michel Gerard, one of my partners, for putting the book together. With a Kindle version finished, getting a paperback done with CreateSpace is also simple requiring some additional formatting which the same freelancer can easily handle combined with an extra 5 or 10 minutes as shown in the class to publish on CreateSpace, an Amazon company, which prints paperback books on demand with no inventory required! Having the Kindle version then allows me to put my audio book on Audible which is where I currently earn 2 to 5 times as much income as I get from Amazon Kindle and CreateSpace combined as seen at at http://jerry.tips/jbaudible. Audible is based on Gold and Platinum membership levels which provide a credit to use each month. I love Audible and have been a member since 2011. If you decide to sign up for Audible, would you please buy one of my books first at http://jerry.tips/jbaudible because Audible gives me $50 if one of my books is your first purchase? Thank you for learning about how to self-publish a book on Amazon with me and I hope this is helpful for you!
In 2005 while I was in college at the University of South Carolina, I tried to start working online. I signed up for an MLM program and a survey website. A month later, I had refunds from both and figured working online was not possible because everything was a scam. The truth was I was afraid to fail again.
In 2011, I moved in with my wife and launched an online business focusing on video game addiction in an attempt to avoid dealing with any of my other problems. In a few months, I changed my business to selling shirts because I realized there was no money in video game addiction. A year after starting my business, I dropped out of my criminology PHD program at the University of South Florida to run my business full time which by then had changed to helping clients with Facebook and Google ads based on my experience failing to do them successfully for myself.
In 2013, I starting sharing everything I knew for free on YouTube because I hoped it would help me get more clients. By April 2014, I was nearly bankrupt after failing at 15+ different business models. I was also nearly dead from trying to drink the pain away and fortunately the fear of death motivated me to get into recovery. Being in recovery motivated me to focus more on being of true service to others and less on what I would get out of it. I started making courses online with Udemy which soon turned into my first real business. I partnered with as many talented instructors as I could and learned from top instructors how to get my courses the most sales.
In 2015, I tried making some inspirational videos sharing what I learned in recovery and got an amazing response on YouTube. To make the background on my videos more interesting, I started making the inspirational videos while playing video games. To make a more helpful website, I hired a freelancer to convert the videos into blog posts including this about page originally.
