Making Additional Income From Your Book With "Ethical Upsells"

The best way to make a full-time income from this project is to have an “ethical upsell” for your book, if that’s something you’re interested in.

The easiest way to start is by having readers reach out to you via email (end the book w/ something like “if you liked this, please email me with any questions you have — especially if you’d be interested in 1-on-1 coaching” … and then selling them 1-on-1 coaching.

Additionally, you can turn coaching into an online course or program (like The Punchy Books Accelerator).

Those are my top recommendations, but there are other options like:

  • a membership site (people join a community for a monthly fee, and you answer questions in a form/on calls)
  • multiple books (lower ceiling, but can work)
  • speaking engagements
  • any other business ideas that come to mind … when people email you and share their problems, you can come up with creative solutions to turn into products or services

You don’t need to decide on something now- once you write your book and build your audience, they’ll tell you what they want via their questions.
