Featured Quotes

“Don’t be afraid to spend money early on on good covers, excellent editors, excellent proofreaders. Don’t be afraid to spend money on looking professional. If you don’t have it to spend early on, save it. Save up until you can. Four years ago, we didn’t know that it was going to get to this point. We didn’t know how professional the indie author community was going to get. So make it a top quality product before you even get it out the door.”

“If you can take the time to learn Facebook advertising and then A/B test something – run one ad with a certain set of specifics, run another ad against it with a certain set of specifics, with possibly just a different title, and then you put them head to head and see which one works best. You find the one that works best, and then you fix the other one, and then create another ad with something slightly tweaked. You just keep putting these ads head to head until you get a winner, and then you exploit it. Haha, for lack of a better term.”
