Excerpt from this week’s podcast “How to Make Money With Unconventional Book Marketing Ideas”
Q: Tom, one of the many things that you do so brilliantly is to take an unconventional approach to business. Tell us more about this, and how it can help our listeners be more effective and stand out from the crowd with their book.
A: One of my favorite quotes is by Marcus Aurelius, and he said, “The key to all victory is organizing the non-obvious.” I love that quote. I think it’s interesting. I think when you’re doing business or anything business-related to marketing sales, you have to approach it that way. I say that because typically there are fundamentals that you have to abide by to get a business off the ground, to start making money for yourself, for sure. But, beyond the fundamentals, literally, there’s thousands and thousands of way to make money, to create profit, and then to also create an impact for your customers and your consumers.
Some of the things that I’ve done in the past, and a lot of it by accident, I just stumbled across them through experimentation. I found some different ways to get my name out there, get the books that I wrote and published, and then other ones that we’ve marketed and launched, such as different digital. Some of those include “Pay What You Want” pricing, which, a lot of people weren’t doing at the time. Actually, I still practice this strategy.
