Get inspiring self-publishing lessons, tips, and secrets every Wednesday.
“Nobody wants to buy your course.” Those are the exact words I recently read from another online course creator.
The phrase hit me like a ton of bricks.
I read on. “Nobody wakes up and says ‘You know, I think I’m gonna buy an online course today.’ What people really want are the outcomes and the results that your course can potentially give them,” he wrote.
Phew! That was relieving. Aaron, Jennifer, and I have poured out our hearts and souls into BookWorthy. It’s a high-quality course that can help anyone write and self-publish a book that people will read. It’s been our hope from the beginning that our course doesn’t only make our corner of the internet look pretty. But instead, it actually helps people achieve their dreams.
Since launching BookWorthy, I’ve learned a few things. One is that we’re good at igniting a burning desire in someone’s heart to write and publish a book.
I’ve also learned that committing to a course and spending money online is a big deal. It’s especially a big deal when it’s to the tune of a few hundred dollars.
But even though our course works (and we can prove it), that doesn’t mean people will register. Often, people have a handful of questions and clarifications that are standing in the way. And I want to address the most common ones in this article.
Here are authentic and honest answers to the most popular questions people ask before taking our course. I hope that after reading my answers, you’ll join BookWorthy and become a published author.
Nobody writes a book alone.
That’s a big mistake.
Writing and publishing a book is hard work. It’ll take blood, sweat, and tears. In fact, it’ll take all the blood, sweat, and tears that you’ve got. There will be days when you’re ready to throw in the towel and settle with the false reality that writing and publishing a book isn’t for you.
Even the most successful best selling authors bring people around them who support them on their journey. Who help them sort out their storyline when they get stuck. Who help them find direction when they’re directionless. And who encourage them to keep going when they want to quit.
Aaron, Jennifer, and I have been through this before. We’ve put in our fair share of blood, sweat, and tears. And we’ve spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars perfecting the self-publishing process. In short, we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to.
“This is an awesome course with a wealth of information and shortcuts to help any aspiring author. So thankful for the guidance and easy to understand layout.” —Cathi
We’ll coach you through every step of the self-publishing process. Plus, you’ll get the entire BookWorthy community to cheer you on and keep you accountable so you actually finish what you started. By the end, you’ll be a published author.
If you do it alone, you’ll be one of the many that quit before they even start.
If you join BookWorthy, you’ll to be one of the few to actually become a published author. I want you to actually change the world with your words.
It’ll cost about $10 to self-publish your book.
Why $10? Because you’ll likely want to order one (or two) copies of your own book before you press “publish.”
Why spend your hard-earned money on a course that doesn’t teach you anything? A self-publishing course should teach you how to well . . . self-publish.
We live in a day where the internet is full of hidden fees, sneaky scams, and pathetic products. BookWorthy is not one of them. We started BookWorthy knowing that we wanted to be honest and upfront with our pricing. That includes letting our customers know what they’re getting into.
“If you’re serious, BookWorthy is an awesome value.” —Terry
We’re not going to “up-sell” you. This isn’t like going to Jiffy Lube. Once you’re in, you’re in. When you register, you’ll get full access to the entire BookWorthy experience for a fair price. Plus, there are no hidden self-publishing fees that will sneak up on you. We’ll teach you how to write and self-publish your book by yourself, for free.
We’ve seen our course actually work. BookWorthy is a valuable investment for anyone considering self-publishing their book.
You won’t find a better option for the price and quality of BookWorthy.
Many aspiring authors get tricked into what’s called Vanity Publishing. This is where a publishing company promises to self-publish your book for a sizeable fee. Unfortunately, this method has developed quite a sour reputation over the years.
(Google the words “vanity publishing.” You’ll see a few less-than-encouraging headlines like, “Vanity Publishing Information Advice and Warning,” “Self-Publishing & Vanity Publishing: Confuse them and Pay the Price.”)
Hear from Angie who lost $10,000 to a vanity publisher.
There are other online self-publishing courses available on Udemy or Masterclass. But you might spend a fortune piecing together various courses. When, instead, you could register for BookWorthy and get everything for one low price.
You won’t shell out thousands for our course. In fact, BookWorthy is only $299. And, in our course, you’ll learn how to go from ideation to publication (and marketing.)
