Here is a list of everything that is going away for a long time as the campaign ends.
Today is the last day of the Go Wide, Grow Wide Kickstarter Campaign. Back the Campaign Today.
Here is a full list of all the major pieces of this campaign that go away for a long time today.
The six main books - Get Your Book Selling on Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Books, Barnes and Noble, and Your Website (that last one is direct sales) are headed out. They are not currently at retailers and you can only get them through the campaign. The new iterations of them will go out to backers and previous purchasers when completed. They will be back at retailers in ebook and paperback at the earliest in the last few months of 2022, but probably into 2023.
Digital printables - The Go Wide Workbook and the Grow Wide Workbook are headed out the door! These two workbooks in print or digital printable answer a few questions I get asked often, which is how can I learn about all five retailers as they work together (Go Wide Workbook) and how can I market at all five retailers as they work together (Grow Wide Workbook). They'll be dropped to backers in March 2023 (not terribly far away) and then they will spend 3-6 months in exclusivity, so would launch to the public in late 2023.
The ad books - Get Your Book Selling with Bookbub, Advanced Amazon Ads, Advanced Facebook Ads are going away except for backers and previous direct sales purchasers. They will not be launched to the public until mid-2023.
Substack subscription + books launched through 2023 under the $75 tier and higher - if you like either of my Substack subscriptions (aggressivelywide.substack.com or productiveserialist.substack.com) then you get a paid subscription to one of them under this tier (the tier itself is worth more than that with all the stuff, so this is a bonus), and with it comes a digital copy of all my ebooks released in the next year (under Monica Leonelle—does not include my fiction, of course). There is one exception, which is the co-authored book with Russell Nohelty that is the center of our next Kickstarter campaign in March 2023. The value of the books under this is good, and I'm trying to be less precious with my Substacks so I can update them consistently (I usually want to write monster articles which just doesn't work for the platform), so I'm hoping to make the Substacks more valuable too, but there's currently no schedule for either.
The Go Wide, Grow Wide Incubator - These are at a discount at all four levels, plus you get all the extra reward stuff. If you backed the campaign in the first 48 hours, you are still eligible for the 2 bonus months I offered, even if you upgrade now (bonuses are by backer number + final pledge level). With all the bonuses, I believe you could get/could have gotten up to six months in the program for only $150, plus all the rest of the reward tiers, so check to see if you're eligible. We will not be launching this again until mid-2023 or later. You will be able to do month-to-month via Patreon starting in September 2022.
The Two Mentorships - These aren't coming back anytime soon, and I'm likely too busy to open my consulting calendar to the public before next spring.
Backer Rewards, Bonuses, Stretch Goals
The Weekly Workshops - These cover the Big 5 retailers (one per workshop) + one workshop on direct sales. These are still available if you are backed at the $150 level or above (you get all six regardless of when you backed). After that, they go to $97 individual and otherwise will be rolled into the Go Wide, Grow Wide Incubator under the appropriate month.
The Three Stretch Goal Books - Get Your Book Selling on Patreon, with Subscriptions and Memberships, and with IngramSpark and Indie Bookstores (should it be unlocked—18 backers to go to hit 350!) are ONLY going to be available through this campaign for a long time. They will go out to backers only in the first half of 2023 and then they will stay exclusive for 3-6 months in ebook and paperback. So, you may not be seeing them for a while (late 2023 or early 2024) and the next opportunity to get them, if any, is likely March 2023 in our next Kickstarter campaign (though we make no guarantees because we haven't built the campaign yet).
The Two Sets of Bonus Podcast Episodes - We unlocked one set that is about Amazon and Amazon Ads, and one set that is about Direct Sales. This is 30-40 episodes worth of extra content/training and we won't ever sell this or offer this again. Some of it may make it to our free podcast feed, but only as it is convenient for us or fits within our goals. No promises as to the if or when!
The Two Personal Trainings/Recordings - The first unlocks at $40k (which we are close to) and is about the full publishing system…What it really looks like and how all these platforms can work together. The second unlocks at $45k and is about the financials of it all. (Basically, I'll break down my financials and where all the money is coming from). I never plan to sell either of these recordings…More likely, they'll become bonuses to programs or rolled in to one of our programs.
PLUS! Announcing: Upcoming Opportunities
In preparation for our March 2023 Kickstarter campaign on Direct Sales (the book at the center is called Get Your Book Selling Direct To Readers) we are offering a beta run of our upcoming Direct Sales Accelerator at a steep add-on discount, and only to people in one of our programs. These programs include the Kickstarter Accelerator and the Go Wide, Grow Wide Incubator. During the beta run, we'll be figuring out where people are at and building the program/course.
The only other opportunity to get in on this is through the Kickstarter Accelerator, but if you are not in that and don't want to be, then the Incubator is your best bet!
Once we have the program built, it'll be premium like the Kickstarter Accelerator is.
There are lots of reasons to back the campaign today.
But the best reason is because in less than 12 hours, you won't be able to get most of this stuff, or the price goes up significantly, or you have to pay much more month-to-month.
Tomorrow, I will get a half-dozen emails asking/begging to be let into the campaign, and I will be able to do absolutely ZERO about it.
The campaign is scheduled to end this evening and Kickstarter is going to end it.
Please get your pledge sorted today before the campaign ends!
