PBLabs #5 was a great start to events in the new space.
What did we learn from TOM GROVES during PBLabs #5 in our new space in Old Market?
Ok, we now know how to make a book that sells (in this instance an edition of 1000) you need to work harder than you may have ever done before and think about every single last detail.
It’s ideal to make a book that people are ready and waiting to buy or may have already donated if using a crowdfunding, not to make a book in this quantity then hope people want to buy it. (Although if your work is amazing, then maybe it will just SELL no matter what)
Make sure you know who your audience is and set your sights directly at them. This means you have to have a real passion for your project, not necessarily the subject, but DEFINITELY the project!
Take some time to listen to the podcast and absorb the invaluable info Tom openly shared with us!
Oh and by the way, what a great PBLabs, major props going out to Tom Groves www.intheboxbook.co.uk
