Synopsis: Reader Magnets are what bring readers to YOU.They're an irresistible force that draw readers in to your author platform - the promise of getting great value content and building a valuable connection. That's what it's all about, after all - making meaningful relationships with your audience and having a direct line to your readers. I started using Reader Magnets a little over six months ago. I didn't even have a term for it back then. Since I put these measures in place, over 15,000 readers have signed up to hear from me about new releases and promotions - all in just a few months. My readers trust me with their contact details for good reason. I give them good content. In return, they buy my books. These guys are my fans. I appreciate every last one of them - and they're the reason I get to write for a living.What Reader Magnets Have Done for Me:- My last email - I made $547 in book sales.- I launch every new book into the top #900 or better.- I don't need to rely on Amazon for an income.- I don't need to pay advertisers to get sales.- I saw my first 1,000 subscribers after just a couple of weeks.- My click-rate is five times higher than the industry average- My open-rate is more than double. How?It's all about getting readers to commit. Get their email addresses. Follow up. Build value. Build your brand.Let me repeat the headline again: I picked up 15,000 new reader email addresses in less time than it takes for most people to write a new book. I got my first 1,000 readers signed up in just a couple of weeks. My click-rates are through the roof. I do this with Reader Magnets - and you can too. Download the e-book to find out how – as well as the ebook edition, you’ll also get:- access to my course “Find your First 10,000 Readers” for free- a PDF edition of the book (in case your e-reader doesn’t handle screenshots well)- the chance to get your burning questions answered at the Reader Magnets community. Here's to your success!
My Take: I heard a rumor that Mr. Stephenson is updating the book, but if he did, that update didn't get to me. I got this book about 8 months ago, but as I had other "stuff" in my marketing to do list to get to the point where I could really use this, I was focusing on those bits first.
This is a short book (I think it is his own Reader Magnet, and yet there wasn't a "freebie offered at the beginning or end". Strange that he didn't use his own advice.) and at 50 pages it was a pretty quick read. (knocked it out in less than 1 hour. If only implementation would be so quick!)
The advice is pretty standard stuff that I have gathered over the years online. The part where I hoped it would be helpful was in the "details" and for me, it was a disappointment. I couldn't follow the step-by-step instructions because the information was out of date. I am in the process of re-launching my first book right before the release of the sequel, so I will be implementing these techniques, but will be on my own to try to figure out how to get it all to work.
Hopefully it will. If you are interested in a follow up to see how this worked, let me know in the comments and I will put it on my calendar to do an update three months after the books launch.
