Redwood (In-Person): How to Make More Money by Selling Your Books, Products, Courses, and Events from Your Own Website

How to Make More Money by Selling Your Books, Products, Courses, and Events from Your Own Website

With Carla King

About the presentation:

Amazon is the biggest bookstore in the world so, by all means, embrace it! You can easily make significantly more sales “going wide” using IngramSpark, but don’t stop there. Earn even greater profits by selling from your own website with an e-commerce tool like Payhip. These easy tools handle payments and digital delivery of books, courses, and events. Plus you’ll get order forms for physical objects (like autographed copies, physical books, and any product) so you can mail them to your customers. You’ll have more fun and make more money when readers come to you directly.
