Here’s the transcript of the video so you can be sure to understand what I’m conveying to you.
Today I want to talk to you about this dollar because this is a very important dollar. My mom gave my son this dollar and he has been dragging it around for several days now. It’s even been through the washing machine. My son’s almost two. To a two-year-old, money is exciting and important. He doesn’t really understand what it means. He doesn’t understand the value of a dollar.
But you do… Right?
So how does this relate to your book?
You’ve worked hard on your book, you’ve written a lot, and you are somewhere in the place between publishing and launching. That’s an exciting place to be.
How much is your book worth?
What’s the value of your book?
Is it a buck?
Because when you sell your book as a 99 cent Kindle eBook, you’re not just telling your reader, “Hey reader, my book’s worth is a buck.”
What you’re really telling them is, “Hey, reader, your pain, your struggle, your heartache… I’ll trade you this dollar for it all.”
And in that moment, with your $0.99 Kindle eBook, you cheapen everything that your reader has gone through.
And if they buy your book, are they going to read it? Are they going to hold it to their heart as something precious and important and of value that could change their lives?
You and I both know the answer to that one. You just asked her to trade a dollar for it. So the answer is that you the author don’t seem to care about them.
But you and I both know that you care. You’ve lost sleep over this. You dream about them. That reader is so precious and important to you.
I DO think you should have a bestselling book. I think we should have because bestselling books because they open doors so that we can share our message with more people. I’m not saying don’t have a bestseller.
I’m saying don’t do a $0.99 Kindle eBook!
