Prior to the first meeting please send me:
For each session, PLEASE BE ON TIME and reduce your distraction to simple chaos instead of maximum chaos. hahaha
Make sure you have the ability to take notes, have gone to the bathroom, and have some beverage and snacks available, if you need them.
Also, make sure you have a good internet connection and you know how to get your microphone and webcam working on a Zoom call.
If you don't know how to do this, get in touch with me right away and myself or Larry will walk you through it.
I'll talk to you then.
Hey Kids! Larry here. If you run into any trouble using Zoom, please ensure you're using the LATEST VERSION first before you do anything else. Reach out to me at Larry@antion.com, let me know you're in this Mastermind and tell me what the issue is. I'll try my best to help you out!
In preparation for your first session read the Product Titling article below and download and read the PDF e-book Formatting document:

Always Increase sales.
Some people buy the entire product to get a unique bonus.
One strategy with bonuses is that the bonus is not available anywhere else. Only with the purchase of the product.
Should be good enough to sell or you have sold. A free email subscription is not a bonus.
Odd numbers between 3 and 7, 3 is enough for a book.
Sample Ideas for Bonuses:
Checklists, Special Reports, Consultations, Other ebooks, Cheat Sheets, White Papers, Mind Maps, Premium Content, Social Media Shoutouts, Interview on Your Podcast, For pre-sales - acknowledgement in the book, Bonus from other marketers customized with your affiliate link.
Bonus1 – (put bonus here) (a $50.00 value)
Bonus Testimonials – If the bonus was so good and you have sold it before, someone probably gave you a testimonial. Put a testimonial pointed toward your bonus.

Changing to an audio Script
You do NOT have to comply with these stringent regulations to create an audio book you sell yourself.
Each piece is a separate audio file.
Whispersync – If you want to participate in that audio book has to be near identical to kindle book
Narrator or Not: 8 year commitment
Suggestions if you will record yourself:
Use Coupon Code for 25% discount Master25
Good Microphone, recording environment,
Pay attention to what you eat, milk, chocolate, carbonated beverages.
Drink lots of water the day before. You can’t hydrate your vocal cords the same day.
Watch your enthusiasm level. If you get tired, quit and start back fresh another time.
Do mono only
Each file no more than 2 hours (120 minutes)
Differences in ebook and audio book script: https://www.tckpublishing.com/how-to-write-an-audiobook-script/
Reading web addresses, be consistent and leave off https:.//www
Anything that refers to the book itself may need changed.
If the book says “As you see in figure 1 on page 18”
That could be, “If you were to see a chart of xyz it would look like.”
You can see a chart of this data in your companion document
Video ebook. I’m ok with that where you have links to videos on hidden pages of your website.
https://Sqribble.net Fancy ebooks (show sample Internet Marketing Ebook)
Pros: Look really nice and professional
Cons: Large file size, a little harder to create, People don’t want to print. Eat up entire ink cartridge.
https://designrr.io/ Nothing but trouble. Error messages. Claims to go both ways, blog to ebook and ebook to blog posting
Pros: You can work up your content a little at a time over time.
Cons: Enormous editing to make a coherent product, takes a long time to write your book one blog post at a time.
