And what motivated me to do this?
Yesterday, I got alerts from Amazon for the payment for sales of my book across their global marketplace. A book I had forgotten I had on sale, and all the while I was busy doing other things the book was also busy earning me extra income. I felt motivated. I updated the book with new chapters and began working on the hardcopy version to be priced at $45 on Amazon.
Currently, the book is ranking as number 127 for Amazon Microsoft Excel book category and that is fantastic for a book I am not promoting, and considering there are probably thousands of Microsoft Excel books.
Now I am going to promote the book using paid adverts on Amazon and, hopefully, sales should rise.
It has motivated me to complete my unfinished novel. I am now reviewing/reading the novel to bring myself up to speed with the theme and get back in sync to be able to write the remaining chapters. I have no doubt that it will also sell on Amazon.
That my book is doing well on Amazon is again a validation of my new strategy of building products I can mass sell. I am grateful to God and Amazon. Next would be to make into a published book from my Financial Modelling training manual.
