How To Make $2001 Publishing Your FIRST Ever Book! With Gregory Diehl
Zbooks Successful Authors Podcast
Launching Brand Identity, with Gregory Diehl. This is one of my favorite authors and one of my FAVORITE books. Holding true to the "Digital Nomad" existance, I interview Gregory Diehl in Morrocco. With the evening prayer blaring in the background from some UNKNOWN source in the highest (the Atlas mountains) mountains of North Africa, you can't help but imagine Humphry and Bacall, or Tim Ferris on the wing in some exotic land! Excerpts from the interview: How big was your existing audience? On a professional level, very small. I had a lot of clients I had worked with a lot of clients before in various aspects of sales and branding, so I reached out to them to help me refine the book and spread the word. They are the ones who ended up as case studies in the book. I also had a fairly large network of personal connections who didn’t necessarily care about the business subject matter of the book, but liked way of thinking and my take on things. They became some of my beta readers and early reviewers. How did you build your audience before launch? My strength has always been cold outreach and direct conversation. I spent a lot of time on forums and in book groups on Facebook just reaching out to let people know what I was planning on doing with the book, which contributed to a lot of 99-cent presales and initial buzz when it launched. It was really encouraging to see the early readers start chiming in of their own accord to say glowing things about the book to back up my own claims. What are the steps you used to launch? I understood two very important things: The book needed to be good I needed to generate immediate social proof that it was good. I tried to accomplish both of these things at the same time by working with as many beta readers as possible to help me refine the rough draft, and most of them agreed to download the book on the day of launch when it was free and leave a “verified purchase” review. In addition, I used some services that allow you to reach out to potential reviewers and send them advance copies of your book in exchange for an honest review. As of now, about 2.5 months after launch. I have 84 reviews, with an average 4.8-star rating. You used the pre-sale method - did that hurt or help you on launch day? It’s hard to say, since I have not tried the alternative, but my book did hit the #1 spot in Public Relations even in the preorder stage. I think having it up there for months before actual launch probably helped gain a lot of exposure from Amazon’s regular browsers. I plan to do the same again, but maybe only a month of preorder this time with the travel book. Have you noticed? There are no commercials or advertisements on this podcast!

I brought Gregory on today because he’s working on two new books, both of which I thought would be interesting to touch on. During this episode, we talk about writing and publishing and how to create meaningful books with meaningful ideas. Our conversation ends up going in the direction of meaning and how to live a meaningful life. My big takeaway from today’s conversation is that we all need principles and values to live by. We cannot navigate this world without a set of principles that guide us in the direction we want to go. In this broadcast, Gregory and I talk about: Gregory’s origin story (what he’s done leading up to what he’s doing today) How are targeted meaningful conversations defined Why you should focus on getting your work in front of the right people How to approach controversial topics in the public eye The complexity of story typical hero archetypes How does the hero journey in stories directly relate to how we feel in real life In what ways does society act against individuals sharing their ideas or core principles What are the critical principles that guide us unconsciously What does a heroic exceptional person do Why you should think before you give something a sense of importance in your life The importance of getting to the bottom of all of the little things that you do How to Connect with Gregory: The Influential Author Gregory’s other books on Amazon gregorydiehl.net identitypublications.com Get the Latest Broadcasts of In The Trenches Subscribe to In The Trenches on iTunes How You Can Support In The Trenches Did you enjoy today's broadcast of In The Trenches?

One of the most important things you can do in this world is discover your purpose. It’s really heartbreaking when an entrepreneur spends decades building a business that’s something they don’t care about. They start to feel burned out, and are too scared to try anything else because they’ve become dependant on the income that’s been created. The good news is, you can start making sure your business’ purpose lines up with your personal purpose at any time: and the sooner the better. You do that through brand identity. This is where you explore exactly what your business is and how you communicate it to your target consumer.By knowing what you stand for, and what your company is all about allows you to make the changes you may feel are necessary. And don’t be afraid of change. It’s important in every business. The world is constantly changing, and any business that’s been around for decades has had to make changes to fit into this constantly evolving world. On this episode of Creative Warriors, I am joined by branding expert Gregory Diehl. Gregory Diehl is the author of multiple Amazon best-selling books on identity development for businesses and individuals. He is also the founder of Identity Publications, an organization that produces and publishes meaningful books containing ideas that matter. Download this episode today to learn how you can find purpose in your business that will make your personal life feel fulfilled. WARRIOR OF DETERMINATION “The last thing you want is to find success in something you don’t actually care about.” -Gregory Diehl Highlights - The point of brand identity is for people to know if they love you or hate you. You need to know what you are trying to communicate right away. There’s not only a personal purpose, but also a purpose in your business. Ask what changes you need to make to maintain your success. You can turn something you don’t care about into something you care about. Be the kind of person who works towards mastery of their environment. We make decisions, not based on reality, but based on the stories of how we see things. Know the stories happening in the minds of your customers. Empathy is the bridge between two stories. The role of a business is to trade something of value for something of higher value. Your customers are looking for an increase in happiness and value according to their perspectives. Break through your limitations on how big your brand can be. Don’t assume there is only so much you can do.
