How Did John Locke Succeed in Self-publishing?
Locke hit upon a successful method of selling his books after an unsuccessful attempt at advertising his first novels. He describes his system in ‘How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in Five Months.’ John Locke uses the term ‘Loyalty Transference’ to describe the act of transferring a reader’s loyalty from one concept or idea to another.
Locke also advises would-be writers to seek out audiences that relate to their own blogging content and style. Through the use of social media and blogging, Locke states he has the ability to create large amounts of publicity through his core group of loyal readers, around 100,000 by his estimate.
