Now that you’ve managed to build your database to a respectable 10,000, you will be able to develop a steady stream of income from all the work you have been doing to build the database.
I suggest editing each of the interviews as you do them and make a directory of them. Once your database is more than 5 to 10,000 you will start at auto responder program. You’ll send a message to your database offering free material: an mp3 file you might have done, an ebook, or even a portion of your book.
After sending at least six free programs, the next message will be to ask your database to pay for access to the interviews (programs) you have done. You should start out by offering the first program for $1.95 then the remaining programs for $9.95 a month.
When you have 10,000 people in your database, you’ll be able to generate a reasonable monthly income. The average is 10% of your database will sign up for your program, so when you have 1,000 people paying $10 a month, you’ll generate $10,000 a month.
That is just one of the 2o plus marketing programs you’ll be able to apply as an author. Many of the programs are passive, so once they are set up, you will be able to keep the income continuously with very little effort on your part.
