1) Step Into the Writing Place Where Anything and Everything is Possible

Mark Levy, the author of the book Accidental Genius, is a major believer of freewriting. Most often what you read or hear is how to get ideas for writing, but very seldom do you hear or read tips on how to use writing to get ideas.

There are no limitations except the ones we create in our own minds.”

The idea with freewriting is to be intentional and set aside 15 to 30 minutes a day for a brainstorming and problem solving writing session.

“Reach for the moon … even you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Now, your brainstorming session shouldn’t be a one-time thing. Schedule out 15 to 30 minutes a day every day for freewriting. If you successfully block off that time, then there’s no telling what you’ll be able to come up with in each cumulative session.

2) Employ a Virtual Assistant

One secret of many full-time authors is that they use one or multiple virtual assistants to help them complete some of their marketing tasks. It’s easy to recruit a VA to help you make more profit from your books as well.

3) Share Something of Value Every Day

This point could’ve easily been replaced by something as typical as “tweet out a link” or “post something engaging on Facebook.” But instead of thinking of social media as a chore to do, you should concentrate on sharing something of value on a daily basis.

4) Nurture Relationships With Successful Authors

Reaching out to other authors is easy. All you have to do is find them on social media or shoot them a message on their contact form from their website. That takes significantly less than 15 minutes.

You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want, first.”

It’s as simple as that. For instance, J. Thorn used this method to get to the top of the horror genre on Amazon, by offering to design and format box sets for other authors.

Time is Money…How Will You Spend It?

Now, as we’ve discussed, it’s easy to get swept away by the most urgent tasks of the day. This is why it is so important to lock in at least 15 minutes per day for non-urgent work.
