How to beat the odds and consistently sell copies of your self-published book. How good is this course? One student used just ONE strategy we teach. These were his results:

“During the first week of Self-Publishing Success Academy, I implemented one of the strategies Jimmy and Kimanzi taught. Within 48-hours of that strategy going live, I sold 1,822 copies of my book, hit #1 on Amazon in nine categories, and rose all the way to a sales ranking of #80 out of all Kindle books. Be sure to connect with them – they totally have this dialed in!!!!”

Beau Henderson

“The information, strategies, and connections in Self-Publishing Success Academy are amazing. I feel as if I may have cheated you by paying so little for the value I received. As it was worth far more!”

Shawn Scheffler

Every year, there are over one million books published. Most of these books won’t sell more than 250 copies. There is a lot of advice about self-publishing, but most of it is dated. In 2011, there were five million books on Amazon. Today, there are over 14 million. The strategies that were used to work aren’t effective in 2015.

Kimanzi and Jimmy have books that are, or have been on Amazon’s bestseller lists this month. Using just one strategy from this course, Kimanzi’s book sold so much in three days it was ranked #64 out of ALL Kindle books.

Who we are: 

photo-300x225Kimanzi Constable self-published his first book in August of 2011 but only sold five copies in the first six months. He decided to stop following popular advice and see what works. Since then, he self-published a second book, and both books went on to sell over 100,000 copies. The books did so well he was signed to a four-book deal with Sounds Wisdom Books. His first traditionally published book came out May of 2013. He is a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, AskMen, SuccessMind Body Green and 10 other websites. His book, Are You Living or Existing? 9 Steps to Change Your Life, is a national bestseller.

Jimmy Burgess self-published his first book What Just Happened? How to Bounce Back in Life So You Can Do More, Have More, and Be More in December of 2013 with disappointing results. After the disappointing initial results, he became a student of self-publishing strategy and later relaunched his book to #1 Amazon bestseller status in multiple categories. After cracking the code on launching books to #1, Jimmy began coaching other self-published authors. Every self-published author he has ever coached one-on-one has been able to reach Amazon #1 bestseller status. On top of being an Amazon #1 bestselling author and coach, Jimmy is a keynote corporate and event speaker, encourager, and eternal optimist. He is a contributing writer for Entrepreneur Magazine and The Good Men Project.

What people are saying: 

“Like many writers, I had been hustling and producing a ton of content, but struggling to get good exposure. Previously, I had submitted to large websites but never heard anything back. After speaking with Kimanzi, I am now a contributor for Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen, and Entrepreneur.”

Thai Nguyen Writer/Editor

Jared Easley Cofounder of Podcast Movement/#1 Bestselling Author/Starve the Doubts Podcast Host

“I’ve been a professional writer for more than 25+ years as both an ex-journalist and corporate Public Relations executive. I thought I knew all there was about getting my content on large websites – was I wrong!  Applying a few of Kimanzi’s tips was all it took to land a gig as a weekly columnist on a site that has more than six million unique visitors per month.”

Tor Constantino PR Guy/Ex-Journalist/Bestselling Author/Speaker

Brenda McGraw Amazon #1 Bestselling Author and Speaker

“The systems taught in this class helped me get articles published on two major media sites. Kimanzi provided practical advice and great support to get my articles designed, written, and published!”
