How much do you earn from the products that you don’t put up for sale or the recommendations you don’t tell people about?
That’s right, a big, fat zero.
What happens with the products you do create and attempt to sell or the affiliate links you put out?
You can’t be sure. You’re dealing with possibilities.
You do your best to provide great products and to recommend only those things you’d enthuse to your friends about.
And sometimes, there will be crickets.
That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
On the other hand, sometimes you’ll make a sale or a commission.
Depending where you put your products and recommendations, your buy buttons and links might even be a gift that keeps on giving.
I’m reminded of this monthly when I receive money from books I published on Amazon over a year ago.
And this month I received another $70 from a link I’ve had on a site since the noughties. I haven’t touched the page in years and I’ve no idea how people are even finding the link because I just looked for it and I can’t find it on Google. Yet that link has paid out more than $700 over the years.
So this is just a friendly reminder to do more of the things that will pay you for your time. Maybe a little thing you do today will buy you dinner in 2031!
Q4 Full Color Profits Challenge
If you want to start publishing on Amazon but you’re not sure how to get started join Julie’s Q4 challenge this year.
Every Q4, she starts a new set of people off publishing their Amazon low content books, and I’ve gotten a lot out of her challenge in past years. But this year it’s going to be extra special as she’s covering color printing which I’ve been experimenting with over on the Zon.
Color printing on Amazon KDP used to be prohibitively expensive, but you can now do it at pocket money prices. That’s super exciting for those of us who create colorful low content books.
Exciting because pretty sells!
Plus publish once and reap the benefits for years.
Doors close at midnight Eastern on November 14th ready for starting on 15th.
If you follow daily, you’ll have a book with a couple of weeks. And have a lot of fun too if past challenges are anything to go by.
Bonus: If you join the challenge through my link, send me your receipt at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll give you a $40 coupon to spend in my store.

LAST DAY: Ekit Leadership pack
Alice has another great pack with a huge amount of quality content, perfect for coaches and those in the business and self development niches.
Great course on rare sale…
I love Michelle’s Passive Income Planner Girl course because it has everything you need to build a business on Etsy and then teaches you how to take it way beyond that.
And the whole emphasis is on building quality, meaningful, and beautiful products as the cornerstone of your business.
Not churning out ugly pages that no one is going to buy.
It’s not a cheap course, but it’s worth every penny even at full price.
And at 50% off, it’s well worth the investment. I paid full price for this one and don’t regret it!
Get more details here. And use code HOLIDAYSALE to make it half price.
And there’s a bonus from me, too. If you buy the course through my link, send your receipt to me at email@example.com and I’ll verify your purchase and send you a $70 voucher to spend in my store.
Ends Friday: Plan Your Life and Business Bundle and my product/bonus
We all have mixed feelings about bundles. They can be a bit overwhelming, I agree, but they are usually such great value that I can rarely resist one.
And I don’t think there’s a single bundle I’ve had buyer’s remorse over.
The thing is, you might not be able to use everything in a bundle right now, especially if you are right at the beginning of your business.
But that’s okay.
If you’re still mired in building your list or website, or busy with different projects, you might not have the capacity to use all the products for a while.
But once you get a chance, you’ll be glad of all the assets you have that you got for pennies on the dollar. You’ll be able to pick and choose the products you make from all the content you have available and you’ll have a training library at your fingertips for all you need to know.
You can release that value at any time and profit. Even six months or a year later.
The Plan your Life and Business bundle is full of products you’ll want to go back to. Buy this one if you can afford to.
It’s a good investment and there are many items in it that you will be glad you own.
You’ll get my Product Planner included too which you can both sell and use. 😊
