How to Sell Books by the Truckload!

with Penny Sansevieri

Amazon is a great place to sell books, but most authors don’t realize that Amazon has an internal sales machine that will actually help you market your book (for FREE) if you trigger it.

When you understand how Amazon's internal algorithm works (it's not that dissimilar from Google's ranking algorithm - with some exceptions)... can get a truckload of free promotion (and book sales!) directly from Amazon without doing any additional marketing or paid ads!'s easier than you think.

In this 20 minute "Cafe", Penny Sansevieri will show you how easy it is to show up in Amazon searches...and see immediate results!

Penny will also explain how Amazon's listing categories and themes work so you can get them working for you!

How to Go From Best-Kept Secret to “Go-To” Expert...
in Record Time!

with Michael Neeley

In this information age, where every industry is saturated with so-called experts, and everyone and their dog is taking on the mantle of “Guru”, it's more important than ever to rise above the noise and be known as an Authority.

The challenge is that the path to that level of expertise can be long and arduous; however, there is a short cut if you know how to take it.

Michael Neeley discovered this path for his own business and went from $0 to multiple six-figures in less than three years!

Now he teaches others to do the same, using his four foundational pillars of Authority: Podcasting, Virtual Summits, Speaking from Stage, and Getting Published.

While all of these items are great tools on their own, when you use them in a specific order and capitalize on methods of interweaving them, the results are exponential!

 In this 20-minute Cafe, you’ll learn how to get started, monetize along the way, and build a foundation that supports your ongoing success...while lightening your workload.
