The class kicks off with a bang as I go over the course agenda, then immediately open with a live demonstration of how to find illustrators in any budget.
You can't have a children's book without illustrations and this is one of the biggest stumbling blocks when it comes to publishing a children's book.
Don't waste money during this the wrong way (I know someone who spent $6K on illustrations she didn't even have the rights to use!), follow my process and the resources I provide to make this part easy as 1, 2, 3 !
Let's demystify the process of purchasing an ISBN. I walk you through the steps of the ISBN process and explain what mistakes to avoid.
You know you need to choose the correct categories and keywords for Amazon but how do you know what to choose? Learn my exact strategy for identifying the keywords readers are searching for to find your book.
In this section, you will learn the key ingredients to boosting your Amazon book sales, from cover design, to your book description, to your price. Then, I will walk you through actually uploading a book to Amazon so you can see exactly how it works and do it right, the first time.
After putting in the work to write and publish your children's book, you want it to sell! In this section, I go over the very first steps you should take to market your children's book. There is an entire Marketing Masterclass in my course library, but this section is enough to get you started.
In this section, I wrap up the teaching portion of the course and answer the most immediate questions.
For many of my students, this is their absolute favorite part. Not only do I teach you the key steps to publishing your children's book, I spend HOURS answering everyone's questions in a separate Q&A Session. Why is this helpful? Because chances are, if you have a question about something I taught, someone else did as well and it gets answered during this session. This Q&A session is a course in and of itself!
One of the hardest things about publishing a children's book is figuring out who will illustrate your book. Let alone who will typeset and format it. That's why I'm including my own personal list of people I have actually used for myself and my clients. Why? I want to remove every obstacle to your success!
Need help coming up with good children's book ideas that will actually sell? I researched the bestselling books on Amazon and created a list of 70 children's book topics that generate thousands of dollars for authors every month. Use my list to choose a topic that people are already searching for on Amazon and jumpstart your success!
People get stuck when trying to write a children's book because they can't visualize it. The secret to getting your children's book done is to use a storyboard. Using my storyboard, you will be able to easily "build your book" and finish the challenge with an actual mockup of your book! From the copyright page to the actual layout, my storyboard builder will help you bring your book to life!
