Yes I do, please where do I sign up?

Read on please!

I don’t know about you, but writing has become quite a passion of mine. Since I fell in love with reading and books as a young child, it has been my wish to write.

Have you felt that way?

And I think often how can I use it to be of value to others?

Which of course leads to the concept of being a published author.

And this is what I have learned in my 7 months of having an online business.

We start small. We build an audience and hone our skills. And whether or not we have acknowledged it. We are already published authors the first time we get our post out there!

So there you go, you already earned the title of Published Author!

Yay, happy dance.

End of post! LOL

OK, here we go!

So let’s talk about all the options of becoming a published author.

Samurai on top

What are our options to becoming more visible as an author?

1. Creating e books

2. Writing great content on our blogs

3. Guest Blogging

4. Using Quora as one of ways to authority building

5. Amazon Kindle

6. Being active on Social Media

7. Branding our selves

8. YouTube and video

This is a just a tiny smidgen of how we can build our authority as published authors. Please know there are so many more ways.

But let’s just talk about these for now.

Ebooks, are an amazing format:

1.We can use them as part of our sales funnel on our sites. Using pricing from about $2.99 to $5.99 and up. For books that are 10-30 pages long and are chocked full of valuable content.

2. Once we publish our ebooks on our site we also use them as our free gift to entice building our email list.

3. It is an easy transition to take our written ebook and reformat it for Amazon Kindle. That way we can also advertise to our readers, please find our book on AMAZON. Now that has a nice ring to it, yes? And it shows authority to our readers.

So no holding back, go do your eBook. It is your path to monetizing and authority.

As for Social Media, well that is a given that if you are able to post on other blogs and leave your full URL from one of your latest blogs, that will help people find you and also give your authority.

So do stay very focused on doing the schedule, being active on social media sites and making sure that our reader knows how to find us.

That happens when we leave back links. If we do not leave clues around the net no one will ever find us. So do be generous in sprinkling your full URL with your latest post as many places as possible.

When you are ready, start learning how to do videos. Even really short ones that can be posted to just let people know who you are.

And when you are ready, there is FaceBook live and YouTube. Create your own subscriptions and channels. And people will come! It is all about being visible and knowing you can make it happen.

And with video, there is a much higher chance that people will watch. Because that is vastly becoming a very preferred way to get information.

And branding is just another way of our readers being able to identify who we are. So the more we post in places all over the net, the more we are becoming branded as authority in our niche.

So are you ready? Ready to become all that you have dreamed about?

If so, we are on the NOW plan. That means we do it now. Not think about it. So get out there. Make it happen. I want to see your name blasted all over the net!

SUMMARY

So many ways to become a published author. It is about visibility, valued content and courage. So do you have the courage to live your dream? I sure hope so.

Take advantage of doing an ebook, for your site, as a sales funnel piece and later for an Amazon kindle book.

There are so many ways to build your following and your dream.

It takes courage to live your life’s dream. I know you have it. Don’t ever give up on it!

I want to hear how you are going to make your dream of becoming a published author a reality. Do let me know below here please!

  1. Like you, I fell in love with books and reading from a very young age. The love affair continues. I voraciously devour books, blogs, articles, just about everything I can get my hands on. I love my Kindle, so I do not even have to go shopping to find what I want to read.

    I never thought I could be a writer though. Oh, sometimes I fantacized that it would be great, because I think I have stories to tell that can help people. But getting published? Actually getting my stories in the hands of people they can help? How do I find a publisher, who wants me? Can I make all the effort commercially viable? Can I be good enough?

    So many questions, so few answers! And then I too discovered blogging. And, as you point out so well in this article, that is just the tip of the iceberg in publishing and making a difference today!

    Next for me is going to be video…scary thought!

    Thanks for the encouragement in that direction!

    1. Hello Annie, I so hear you! And I agree the options are beyond phenomenal. I can hardly wait to see what will surface in the coming months. And where will we be then? I mean it seems like success is so close. Thanks so much for being here. IN peace and gratitude, ariel

  2. I have always wanted to write! Books and writing have been a passion since I learned how to read. I didn’t realize that by creating my blog and writing an Ebook I had become an author. Of course, the true merit of an author is whether or not you can sell your written works! I guess we will see my merit one day!

    1. I have no doubt that you will be great as an author. People will find your books and you will soar.
      So much to look forward to , yes Brit?
      thanks for being here. in peace and gratitude, ariel

  3. Ariel,

    I always have to smile when I read one of your posts. You have a delightful way of writing. I am currently working on another Ebook. This one will be one that I sell, the last one was a freebie for signing up to my website. The things that we have been learning are certainly opening up doors for us that we never knew existed.

      So much to look forward to , yes Brit?
      thanks for being here. in peace and gratitude, ariel

    2. Oh Lisa, you are so very kind. Thank you! I know it is mind blowing how so much is changing so fast. I am in awe and so in love with my life right now.
      Yay you for getting those ebooks out. Looking forward to reading them. So glad you are here sharing this. In peace and gratitude, ariel

  4. I have wanted to be an author since I was a child. As far back as I can recall, actually. I love that the internet allows us the opportunity to get our work out there in front of people.

    I may not end up with a bestseller, but just the idea of being able to make some money off of something I wrote is wonderful.

    1. Hello Craig, I hear you! And whether or not we create best sellers the amazing thing is that we did it!
      And you write so well.. I look forward to what is coming next for you and all of us!
      Thanks for being here. IN peace and gratitude, ariel

  5. I’ve always loved reading and because of that, writing came naturally to me. Now, with the availability of the internet, there is no excuse for not taking the art you love and turning it into something many, many others will also enjoy.

    I really enjoy this “NOW” plan. It has been my strongest motivator.

    Great post, Ariel.

    1. Hello Sue, isn’t that the truth.. this NOW plan really rocks. And it is so up to us to keep it happening yes?
      Cannot wait to see what you come up with next.
      Thank you! In peace and gratitude, ariel

  6. Dear Ariel,
    Awesome post!
    Yes, there are NOW so many more ways available to us as ‘writers’ and also many ways for us to ‘make our mark’ on this scene. Yes, you are so right – once we ‘hit the publish button’ on our websites, we are ‘instant stars – instant published authors’ – and this is a fact!
    Now, it is the other part that concerns us – getting known – yes, that will come in time, as long as we have a schedule and a plan to go along with it.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Much success to you.
    Michelle

  7. In a nutshell, you have given me all the necessary tools that I need to have a successful business online. I do believe that blogging is the best way to reach your audience and creating valuable content is the best place to start.

    Writing content was not my expertise, but the more I read your posts it is enlightening me that writing is only a form of commuting with your audience which we do every day and not realizing it. to get started with all the necessary tools you described, Where do I begin? And what should my daily schedule look like?

    Thank you for posting on a regular basis, I love reading your articles which gives me more insights that building a business online is achievable if done right, thank you.
