Self Publishing for Bloggers – Get Established as an Expert.

My name is Ivin Viljoen and I became a self publishing expert in 2007 when I wrote my first book in 3 days and had it published in 2 weeks. I’ve been blogging since 2006 and August 2010 I launched this self publishing blog.

I have developed a method for bloggers to self publish their expertise and become established as an expert in their field. Let’s first look what will being an expert benefit you:

  • You can stand out form everybody else.
  • You can develop a great reputation if you’re willing to help others and work hard.
  • You can get more beverages through leverage.
  • Your rate becomes higher.
  • The media will look to you for quotations.
  • You will have the opportunities to headline conferences.
  • You have greater exposure to customers.

You can be considered as an expert if you have around 1000 hours of practical experience in your field. With roughly 1600 – 2000 working hours in a year it should take you a little over 6 months to do so.

Methods to write your book.

  • If you don’t have confidence to become a writer, feel free to hire a ghostwriter to assist you. Give him your notes so he could extend it into a manuscript.
  • You can take your material and get closer to publishing your book by calling up your posts from your different categories, gather material and compile your manuscript from the posts and edit it. Every category has the potential to become a chapter in your book.
  • You can use a transcriber by talking writing down what you say.  Edit the material and your manuscript is done.

Methods of self-publishing.

  • You can publish through publishing houses.
  • Get an ISBN to make it a published book, simply print your book on office paper and get a professional to bind the books for you (Get specs from them before you print).
  • Then there’s print-on-demand if you means you have limited outlay and you print only when you get orders. You can do this through Amazon’s CreateSpace program. I have some video tutorials available here.
  • You can electronically self-publish books for Kindle which can easily cause books to go viral quickly.

Expert power is in holding the printed book in your hand. You can get a lot of respect when you hold a copy in your hand.

  1. I have tried to make an e-book, but to have success you need to have an interesting subject. Also, it needs to be promoted after you wrote.

    Of course, additional tools that help to be a book publisher are welcome.

  2. Some excellent points!

    But I think it will be extremely difficult for you to do in 2 weeks!

  3. This information might come in handy for me someday. This is a great article or tip for the writers, bloggers and maybe journalist right?

    Thanks,

  4. Good information.Self-publishing is good but it’s not that too easy as everyone thinks, it take time to work on it and great tools to begin with. I’ve been blogging a couple of months ago and I’m happy to it. Being a happy of what you are doing right now is good essence to become successful.

  5. Do you know how to recognize a successful person from a unsuccessful one?
    The easiest way is with the language they use. When you talk to a successful person about his objective, he will tell you what he plans to do and when it will be done.
    When an unsuccessful person explain his goals, he will keep wondering and hoping to do it someday.
    But keep in mind : someday never comes.

    The big difference is the Action !

    A lot of people are afraid of failing, but if you never try, you will never know if you can realize your goals and even if you fail, you will always learn something from your failures.
    The success is made from a lot of failures.

    I wrote my first eBook at beginning of the year as bonus for the opt-in of my blog.
    I am working on my first Clickbank product in this period.

    Thanks for sharing your post, nice points !

  9. Thanks for an informative post. I love the idea that you can gather together material through blog categories.

  10. Yeah, once again you’re sucking air. I can’t believe you’re blog has so much hype. Drivel.

  11. Writing through a transcriber sound like a great method. But, writing a book is not THAT easy. Got here http://www.growmap.com/self-publishing-expert/ where Ivin gives you a little more information. Like he was ‘super-inspired’ and he already had it ‘up-here’. So if you have nothing, there will be nothing. With nothing, the fastest method is NaNoWriMo.

  12. Yeah, gotta agree with Bob. The print on office paper’ is a little bit hazy :)

  13. A lot of great points here. Obviously not that easy to do and implement, but a very good basic guide. I don’t know how you’re gonna do this in 2 weeks.

  14. This is a test for reply me plugin.
