Make more money in 2017 with my favorite money making habits.
Today, my sister scribes, fellow creators, beautiful businesswomen and excellent entrepreneurs, I thought I’d share some of my favorite tips, tricks and insights with you. A list of spiritual and practical things you can do to increase revenue now.
(Maybe every week!)
This year, as soon as all the income arrives for the month, I’m going to set an advertising budget for that month and it will be as generous as that month’s income allows. The only way to know which ads will work is to try them, so I try them all and I keep notes. But the key to remember is that advertising isn’t once and done. If you want your sales go higher and stay higher, advertise. Track average sales for a week or so prior to your ad, and for a week or so after to judge its impact. Count the increase in sales, not the total sales. (So if you sold 10 copies a day before the ad, and 20 copies a day after the ad, you increased your sales by 10 books per day.) Multiply the extra sales by the amount you earn from each sale, and compare that number to the amount you paid for the ad. If you make more than you spent, then the ad is making you money. So why would you not do it all the time?
A site that makes you more money than you spent on the ad, is a site worth using again and again and again. @maggieshayne
Advertising can also include Facebook posts

Resources I Use and Adore
Leonie Dawson’s Shining Year Biz & Life Workbooks and Planners
I’ve mentioned these already. I love them, they’re on sale for half price. And I’m an affiliate.
This site keeps track of your daily sales by title and vendor, and is my go to source for number crunching after ad campaigns, monthly, annually and so on. It’s fantastic. One drawback is that you have to trust them with your login credentials at the retailers, which is scary for some. I’ve trusted them for years, and I monitor the sites well enough that I’d know within a day if something was off, and would be able to fix it just as quickly. I just love this service.
This is a free service for anyone whose ever advertised in KND, and I’ve been using it forever. It tracks book rankings on Amazon, so you don’t have to stay up all night after an add to check hourly. It’ll tell you how high you got, and when, at your convenience.
I pay a lot for QB. It handles my payroll and a lot of the other things involved in running a business. I wouldn’t try to do this without it.
Lifespan Under-Desk Treadmill
My hubby modified my desk with legs that electronically extend at the push of a button, but before he did that, I just put the desk up on risers so I could use my fabulous under-desk treadmill from Lifespan. I am not exaggerating when I say this desk has added years to my life and taken pounds from my waistline. Over time, I’ve even become adept at composing while walking. But even before I got to this point, and used it only for email and social media, and it still did me a world of good. I walk slowly, but every step counts. YOUR HEALTH IS WORTH THIS. Get a desk treadmill, I’m serious.
Longer life and better health is worth every penny a desk treadmill will cost. @maggieshayne

Above All Else, Cultivate Joy
Yes, above all else. Above writing, above hours at the desk, above taking courses (which I should’ve included–take courses, keep learning!) But above all else, seek joy. Be a happy person. It is, after all, a choice. Focus on things that feel good. Turn off the news. Stop worrying. Banish that habit from your life.
Until next time….
