Contemplating selling my books via my online content marketing

Why do people buy something?

In particular, why do people buy and read books?

I think about that since I want to sell my own books.

Some answers I can come up with on why people buy and read books are for inspiration, for entertainment, for practical information, and for life insights.

For now, I’m focusing on writing, publishing, and selling inspirational books, because I want to read those books myself. I enjoy reading inspirational books, especially when they’re my own.

Before I talk more about this, some product plugs.

I’m not into creating entertainment, so I don’t write entertainment books, like novels. Entertainment business is not what I want to get into. Maybe that probably tells that I’m not into entertaining people.

I write and publish some practical information books.

I need to figure out how to sell my own books.

I need to figure out how to create books that sell.

My human brain is for solving problems, and I have the problem to solve of selling my own books.

I’ll go in as deep as it is needed to solve this problem of selling my own books.

Becoming a successful salesman at selling my own books: that’s one problem I need to solve.

Maybe I’ll succeed at it, maybe I won’t; in any case, I want to try and keep on trying.

I don’t want to lie or do deceptive things to make sales; that’s just not what I want to do. So, I want to find a way to sell my own books without lying or being deceptive.

In the past six months, I made US$35 from selling my own books. That’s not good enough, although it’s better than nothing. I need to make at lest US$3,500 per month from selling my own books.

I need to make at least US$30,000 in a year or two for my high-tech startup seed money—for completing, patenting and marketing my visual artificial intelligence and robotics software products. I have no investors, at least not yet, so I’ll make the seed money myself.

So, in order to make the seed money that I need for my high-tech startup, I’ll plug myself into the Matrix, do some kung fu, fight the agents, and find out whether I’m a chosen one and can fly like Neo.

For now, I think making money involves doing a lot of chores; I’ll keep trying out my moneymaking ideas, and see if that’s true or not.

I love writing and publishing my own books.

I want to make enough money from selling my own books.

I think my own online business of writing, publishing, and selling my own books is worth giving a shot, at least for a year.

Ultimately, the formation and continuation of human economic transactions is no more than human brains firing neurons.

God willing, I’ll manage to build a successful book writing, publishing, and selling online business that will have 1,000 to 10,000 people who will regularly buy and read my books.

That number seems pretty impossible to reach for me right now.

Only a few people bought my books so far, and they are not repeat customers.

I don’t know how to build a successful book writing, publishing, and selling online business.

I’ll keep trying different ideas, and see how it goes.

I’ll keep trying at selling my own books, and let you know how it goes.
