How To Turn Your Book Into a Bestseller
Presented by Bo Bennett, PhD, Founder of eBookIt.com
See a Sample Lesson From This Course
My first book, Year To Success, was based on the concept that success is not about a few secrets, but hundreds and even thousands of small changes you can make in the area of self-improvement that will greatly increase your chances of success. The same concept holds true for marketing and promoting your book. This course comprises dozens of the best strategies combined with the personal assistance of a trained instructor to help you execute these strategies. Each lesson in this course focuses on one strategy.
Some ideas take time and some cost money. Depending on how much time and money you have to invest in your book, you can choose the strategies that work best for you. This course has something for everyone.
This course is based on my ebook 101 Book Marketing Ideas, which in turn is based on my own experience as an author, as well as advice and feedback from many other authors. My book Logically Fallacious has been in the top 10 books sold at eBookIt.com consistently, frequently making #1. In addition, as founder of eBookIt.com, I have a privileged perspective of what works when it comes to promotion and marketing, having worked with thousands of authors over the years. This course goes beyond the free ebook 101 Book Marketing Ideas where, in each lesson, I provide a detailed audio and/or video explanation/demonstration of the idea.

You might notice that I am not shy about mentioning my own books and business where appropriate. Consider that a bonus tip :) Be proud of your work.
I look forward to having you as a student!

About Your Instructor
Robert "Bo" Bennett started "Adgrafix", a graphic design firm, right after graduating Bryant University in 1994, with a bachelor's degree in marketing. In 1995, he sold the graphic design business but kept the name "Adgrafix" that he used for his new web hosting company. As a self-taught programmer, Bo created one of the first (perhaps the first) web-based affiliate systems and web-based web hosting interfaces. He built Adgrafix to a 5 million dollar a year business, then sold it to Allegiance Telecom in 2001.
A day after he sold Adgrafix, Bo started Archieboy Holdings, LLC as a holding company for many different web properties, some of which have become their own entities, and sold to new owners, and others which he is still running today. One of the past sales include Boston Datacenters -- the distressed datacenter in Charlestown, MA purchased by Bo from former HarvardNet founder. He took the company from losing tens of thousands of dollars per month to profitability in less than a year. In two years time, he sold the property to Hosted Solutions. Today, the property is owned by Windstream and it remains one of the premier datacenters in New England.
Bo is currently the founder and CEO of eBookIt.com, a company that formats and distributes eBooks, print on demand, and digital audio books, as well as president of Archieboy Holdings. He holds a PhD in social psychology, with a master's degree in general psychology and bachelor's degree in marketing.
This is a self-paced course comprising 32 lessons, 36 self-evaluated assignments, 32 instructor-reviewed assignments , 155 multiple-choice questions, for a total of approximately 31 hours of student learning.
Upon successful completion of this course, all students will receive an authenticated certificate of completion.

Writing and publishing have not bee part of my life experience until now. I am finding it fascinating to hear this information and to gain some understanding of the process. Your analysis and instructions are clear. Thank you BoAnn Bernard, student
A great course! Really gave me confidence in my ability to bring my book, "Find Your Purpose, Using Science," to a broad audience. I especially appreciated the 6 different pitches, coming up with them gave me a lot of new ideas for how both to promote my book, and co-brand it with the nonprofit I co-founded, Intentional Insights, dedicated to empowering people to reach their goals, including their life goals such as finding meaning and purpose. Thank you, Bo!Gleb, student
