So yes, $156,250 today from a "super affiliate" - but it's not what you think.
The affiliate happens to be a publishing house. Today is the release date for my cookbook with Simon & Schuster: America's Most Wanted Recipes - Book Summary & Video
I received a 6-figure bonus for signing with them, and prior to today they already had reserve orders for over 50,000 books sold to book stores and retailers. The total payout so far is $156,250 and that's only on day one.
This is a very exciting time for me. They tell me that we already have media interest from QVC, The Today Show, and Fox & Friends. I told them I'll believe it when the black car shows up to pick me up .
What does this have to do with the Warrior Forum?
I owe thanks to the Warrior Forum for helping me get this deal. I've even given special thanks to the forum in the book and sent Allen a copy of the book.
I recently talked about how I got this deal on Willie's radio show:
How Ron Douglas Sold 60000 Books Ebooks - Built List of 225000 Gets Millions Of Hits Per Month 2/25/2009 - Willie Crawford on Blog Talk Radio
In short, I got the book deal by:
1) Selling a lot of self-published books and ebooks using marketing strategies I learned here.
2) Networking and forming relationships with the contacts I met through Warriors.
It can all be traced back to attending the very first NY Warrior Lunch in 2004 where I met Mike Ambrosio, Mike Filsaime, Fabio Marciano, and Robert Puddy - see pic http://rondouglas.com/images/firstNYwarriorLunch.jpg
Years later I ended up working with the same agent that Mike F. uses. He shopped the book deal for me and got me a spot on Fox News. The publisher got excited about the book because of the exposure it was getting and the sales it had already made as a self published title.
As I mentioned, it was the marketing strategies I learned and the contacts I made on the Warrior Forum, that made this all possible. For that, I just want to say THANKS!
That's all I'll say for now. If people start to take interest in this thread or ask questions, I'll post more details on how others can do what I did.
