WordPress is Just the Beginning

Guest Post by WordCamp Albuquerque Speaker Kimanzi Constable

I had been blogging for a little while on Blogger, talking about work  and how we spend our 40 hours a week. I took it a step further and decided to self-publish my first book, I knew I needed a better platform for my book and that’s what led me to WordPress.

I was so excited the day my WordPress site had 100 visitors, I thought I would sell one million copies of my ebook. The book came out and no one bought it, after two months I had sold 11 copies.

My website was only getting 20 visitors a day. I was missing something that would bring in the traffic to my website and give my ebook some exposure. I study a lot of figured out what I was missing and to date have over 10,000 visitors a month to my website and have now sold over 55,000 copies of my two ebooks.

My session at WordCamp Albuquerque will teach you how I finally brought people in, got them to come back and bring others with them. I will teach you the major change I made to sell so many ebooks I was offered several publishing contracts.

This session will help you take your WordPress site to the next level!

    You can see Kimanzi’s website here: http://talesofwork.com/blog/
    I believe the book he refers to above (he has since written another) is Tales of the Everyday Working Man (and Woman).
