How to sell goodwill?

Socializing for Success in Indie Publishing  January 16, 2018 – 07:59 am

Love it or hate it, collectively all of the various forms of social media are a critical part of marketing. They are a way of connecting, not only with potential readers, but also with people who can be resources to help you meet your goals, as long as you remember that it is a two way street. You need to be prepared to put as much or more energy (or money) into other peoples’ goals as you would like them to put towards yours. Why is this important? Go back to my mantra: You sell your book by getting people to tell OTHER people to buy it, and read it.

Think of social media as a way to fill a bucket that has the potential to contain good will. You will need that good will to sell your book. But you have to fill it first, and you do that by helping others. BUT DON’T START HELPING OTHERS ON THE SAME DAY YOU WANT TO DRAW SOME GOOD WILL OUT FOR YOURSELF, or the bucket will remain empty.

The good news is that it is really not very hard to fill your bucket. People are grateful to accept help. If you get out and establish a presence and help people promote whatever it is they are trying to sell/distribute/raise for charity (whatever is driving them), they will be 100 times more likely to do the same for you when the time comes.

Okay, here are two great sources of income that

Have worked out for me.
Not sure how you handle hard work, but I'm serious about the landscaping thing. You can take an online course in small engines etc for about 700 and be finished in 9 months so you can repair your own equipment. Buy some used equipment and basic insurance. Read about plants in your area, read about types of grasses and the care required to maintain them. There are many books on this. I try to put cards in lawns that don't look well kept. You can take out a loan of 5 g's or less to cover these expenses.
Also, sell things on ebay. I buy name brand clothing and other items from goodwills and thrift stores and sell them for ten times the price online. For example, spend 60 bucks at goodwill and sell for 650. You just have to know what to look for.

My vacation to springfield has made me so.......

Depressed.
my family is crazy. and that's why i moved 2,000 miles away.
the good part of my vacation was all of the good (and extremely cheap) vintage stuff i scored at the local salvation army and goodwills.
if i still lived in springfield illinois, i've decided that i would make my living off of e-bay. no one realizes the value of the some of the stuff i was finding. i had to... like a child, so i told them i did *need* an explanation, and i expected one.
well, that was the last night there, and from then on, our trip was terrible. i really didn't want it to end on a bad note, so that was the reason i needed to know WHY my mom wasn't going to be in the pictures. how terrible. everyone started screaming and yelling, whilst my b.f. was downstairs.
bad times.
