In the last couple of weeks I have not been as active posting online. I’ve been knee deep into writing my LinkedIn book, “Got LinkedIn: From Clueless to Connected in 6 Days”.
Currently I have finished the rough draft and it sits right at 100 pages. With revisions and the addition of more stories it may get as high as 120 pages. I hope to have the final version completed by the 29th which for those of you in the Atlanta area, is the Lunch and Learn date at the North Fulton chamber where I will be part of a panel discussing social media.
I have no clue how I’m going to distribute it or what the pricing will be. Hopefully some of the connections I’ve made that have experience in this area will feel pity on me and make some suggestions. The most likely scenario is that I develop an affiliate distribution system.
I’ve worked on commissions for the past seven years so I understand the value of earning income based on time and effort. I’ll hopefully be able to set the affiliate commissions in the 33% range. As far as the price of the book my initial thought is to keep it well under $20. I want to make sure that the book is priced well enough for those who are interested in it, but at the same time allow the affiliates to make a reasonable commission.
This post started as the intro to a post about jobs and an email I received, but I think I’ll just end this one and start a new post.
