How to get more customers and clients (by meeting them where they are)

Recently I figured out that far more people are searching for “how to write a book” than “how to market a book” – because far more people want to write books than people who actually finish writing one. The insight I gained from that was, I can’t just be targeting clients and customers where I want to reach them. There’s a ... Read More »

How to turn your nonfiction book into a profitable online course

A few years ago I started publishing nonfiction ebooks to boost my business. I still recommend ebooks as a simple and easy way to generate leads, get more traffic, dominate your industry and establish yourself as an expert. It’s relatively easy to get your Amazon page to rank well in Google. The problem is that it’s hard to earn good ... Read More »

How to use positive thinking to sell more online courses

I just wrote up a case study of my first course launch (which made 18K in 48hours). Although I did pretty well, I could have done much better. I actually wrote this post several months before my course launch, because I was already dealing with anxiety and lack of confidence. For several years I’ve run this blog as a side project, a ...

So this is an (epic) case study explaining everything I did to make 5-figures with my first course launch – without any affiliates promoting it for me, and without doing any webinars. I hope it will be useful for anyone else thinking ...

How to build and grow an email list (my recommended email subscription service + free course on email marketing)

Whether you’re an author, artist or entrepreneur, you’ve probably heard “the money is in the list.” Building your email list gives you direct access to your clients, customers and fanbase. For the past several years I’ve used Mailchimp, and I continue to do so despite it’s problems (which I’ll discuss down below). I usually recommend it to authors because I ... Read More »

How to discover your personal strengths and apply them to your brand and business

Since I started Creativindie I’ve been running it as a personal blog. Sure I try to get some traffic, and want people to sign up on my list, and maybe eventually hire me or buy something… but it’s been sloppy and haphazard. However, since I’ve decided I want to be writing fiction full-time, that means I need to stop working ... Read More »

Your mindset is not the problem

I just saw someone post a story on Facebook about how all their businesses failed for the past 8 years, but that’s OK, they just didn’t have the right mindset. But now that they’ve been listening to Tony Robbins and other business coaches, they’ve fueled up their enthusiasm again and this time they know they will be successful because they believe they will ...
