After 6+ months of testing, tracking and recording…
3 months of intensive research, study, and compiling…
And 1 month of all-consuming writing, editing, scrapping…and writing some more…
I’ve finished my new book:
Author Tom Morkes delivers. Some readers might think anyone advocating sharing and generosity advocate wearing “KICK ME” signs on our backs as people steal our creations. Not Tom. Instead of some BS-ing cheerleader long on promises and short on specifics, this guy creates a detailed game plan anyone could win with.
– Tom Owens, author | 101 PO’ed Poems: Frustrations in Free Verse
If you’ve been following me for a while, you already know what this book is about.
For new readers, here are some links to get you up to speed on the topic of Pay What You Want, and why it’s important:
1. Pay What You Want: The Ultimate Sales Strategy (external link)
This was a post I did for Medium.com. It’s kind of gone viral. People are tweeting Justin Bieber about it. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
2. Pay What You Want Pricing with Tom Morkes on the Content Warfare Podcast (external link)
I sit down with marketing expert Ryan Hanley to discuss why Pay What You Want is one of the most powerful marketing techniques available.
I show you 3 case studies of people crushing it using PWYW pricing.
4. Get Unstuck and Start Making Money Now (external link)
I sit down with marketer Tema Frank to discuss my origins in the online world and how I got started using Pay What You Want pricing.
This is my reason WHY for what I do / create / write.
A case study of my first Pay What You Want product: 2 Days With Seth Godin.
The free resources above should get you started.
If you’re at all interested in the subject and would prefer a more in-depth, yet practical look at the pricing technique (and how to apply it to your own business, writing or art), definitely check out the book.
I put my blood, sweat and tears into this one – I promise you that.
If this book isn’t your style, but you’d like to support my creative work, any and all contributions are welcome.
