Story
What is that one thing you've always wanted to accomplish, but never had the audacity to do?? Come on now, admit it, just like me, you have something that's been simmering, but just never quite got cooking!
As for me? This is it! I've always wanted to complete an independent project and bring those I love along for the ride. My ultimate goal is to inspire those around me to dare to be different and unlearn those societal norms that discourage us and prevent us from channeling our inner "dopeness".
So, I've written a book that will do just that! My name is Tia Nicole Dorsett, Wellness Advocate, from Greensboro, NC. And, after a lifetime of ups and downs, countless career changes, and times of self-doubt, I have made the decision to wake up every morning with a smile, not allowing anyone to dim my light. With that, just like me, by purchasing and reading my book, "Trust Your Dopeness," you, too, can make a conscious decision to change your victim mentality to that of a victor!
Right now, is your time to change your life and that of others, by helping this project to come to fruition. For my first and second volumes to be advertised, published, and distributed, I must meet my goal of $8,450 and make my dream of becoming an author come true. Please consider donating to kickstart a new beginning with this unique, state-of-the-art, comedic self-help book. With your contribution of $75 or more, make a difference, and enjoy your signed copy of "Trust Your Dopeness". This is an unparalleled opportunity for you to be a part of that you will not regret. Thank you for your time and attention. God bless!
Risks and challenges
As an Author using an e-commerce site, one challenge is keeping readers on the site. However, if I distribute my book to online bookstores and brick-and-mortar bookstores, the challenge is getting the book to stand out. If the book does not stand out, it will not attract any readers. One of the best ways for publishers to attract readers is to incorporate personalization, which honestly for me, has always been one of my best attributes. Personalization is important because it provides publishers insights about what customers are reading, and these insights help publishers conduct targeted ad campaigns and build e-mail marketing lists. I understand the effect that utilizing social media can have on retaining and acquiring loyal customers. For instance, emailing and direct messaging a shareable link, referral marketing can easily take the opportunity to transform a simple share into an actual purchase. I can use this common practice of sharing information with friends and family on social media to reach customers that I might not ever reach otherwise.
Interestingly, polls have been conducted online with consumer surveys regarding purchasing behaviors. The results show that 67 % of people were at least much more likely to purchase an item that a friend, co-worker, or family member suggested via email, text message, or social media. Referral marketing is just one additional way that I can quickly and rather easily reach new customers by simply encouraging my readers to refer friends and family.
Below is a chart with a breakdown of expenses for publishing and printing the book:
