So I heard about this new course called the Self Publishing Revolution. I thought it looked kind of interesting, so I thought I would do a bit of a mini-review of it and see whether I think it is worth signing up for. So let’s take a look…
Product Name: Self Publishing Revolution
Owner: Lucas De Stefani
Release Date: April 1st, 2016
At the top of the sales page, there is a nice little cartoon video explaining what it is all about:
He says it can make money on autopilot while you sleep.
The course will show you how to:
- Outsource your books.
- Find the best keywords.
- Get great quality covers produced.
Apparently, using these techniques you will be able to automate your business and earn between $1,000 and $8,000+ per month within three months. He says he himself has had dozens of bestsellers in different niches, and his books average $250 per month each. He has already coached tens of students to achieve the same success.
But how much will this cost you?
It’s a familiar concept…
It all sounds a lot like K Money Mastery, which is also about outsourcing a self-publishing business. That will cost you a similar amount of money, once you factor in the upsells.
At least Self Publish Revolution doesn’t seem to have any upsells. It seems like you just pay $299 and that all you need to pay.
But the problem I have with all this is that this could all turn out to be expensive. Don’t forget, he is saying that he will show you how to outsource the writing of your books as well as the design of the front covers, so you will end up paying significantly more than $299 before you even start to earn any money.
Sure, any business costs money to set up at the beginning. However, my concern is that many people will come to this and be short on money. They want to find a way to earn money without having to pay as much as that to get started. Many people are time rich but money poor.
So hopefully this guide shows you how to write the books yourself first, so you can earn enough money to then pay for outsourcing.
Is Self Publishing Revolution a scam?
It doesn’t look like a scam as such. It looks like it is a genuine course to learn how to publish your own ebooks. I just wonder whether you are likely to earn the kind of money he is claiming you can make.
Is it worth trying?
So it’s possible that you could build a successful business with this, and if you have some money to initially invest to get started, it might be worth a try. It does come with a 60-day money back guarantee. However, this product is sold via ClickBank, and in my experience, ClickBank products can sometimes be difficult to get refunds for.
Also, if you spend lots of money on outsourcing and your self-publishing business doesn’t succeed, you won’t get that money back. The refund only covers the money spent on the course, not the money spent on outsourcing.
To be honest, I think you’re probably better off starting a blog about a topic that interests you. Then you can monetize that blog with Amazon and/or eBay as an affiliate. I have written about this before:
Anyway, I hope you found this post about the Self Publishing Revolution helpful. I know it’s not very long and in-depth, but this is a new product so there is not a lot of information to go on just yet. If you have any comments or questions, please post them in the comments section below and I will reply when I can.
All the best,
