As an avid reader (and upsizing our library to fit in my book collection), I realized that the number one problem that people were having wasn’t writing the book, but marketing it once they had it published.
As an Author you put your creative side to work and spend hours, weeks, months even years to produce that final manuscript and upload to Amazon. You get a few initial sales, it's ok but after some time the sales start decreasing, your royalties diminish and all that hard work, time and energy becomes a frustrated mess.
Was all the effort you spent in this process worth it? It can be so disheartening, writing your book is a major part of book sales but marketing your book is the crucial next step if you want success.
The learning curve of putting together a marketing plan, build a website, researching keywords, categories, advertising, optimization and don't forget sending traffic to your book. This can be very overwhelming.
These can be all foreign concepts and not what writers & authors want to spend their time doing. Writers and Authors need to spend their time writing that next best seller. Not losing valuable time on this stuff.
Was all the effort & time you spent trying to work it all out worth it?
