SPI 079: Time Travel and Book Marketing with Jeff Goins—Strategies to Help You Sell More Books and Spread Your Word

By Pat Flynn on

In this session of The Smart Passive Income Podcast, I get to do something I’ve always wanted to do:

Time Travel.

Let me explain. 🙂

My good friend, Jeff Goins—a popular Amazon best-selling author, award-winning blogger and speaker who writes at—joins me for what is essentially two sessions in one.

We talk all about book marketing and promotion, but the cool thing is that the first half of this episode was recorded back in April of 2013, which gave me time to implement the strategies that Jeff shared on the show to help promote my book, Let Go.

The second half of the show was recorded exactly 2 months later after I took action based off of Jeff’s advice, and Jeff critiques what I did right and what I should have done instead. I did make some mistakes that Jeff talks about that will hopefully be a great learning experience for you as much as it was for me too.

I had a lot of fun with this one, and after re-listening to it while editing last night, I’m inspired to get back into book writing soon with better direction and experience under my belt.

This session is not just for people who are writing books or those who may eventually want to become authors—it’s for anyone who wants to sell anything that they’ve put a lot of work into and know will help benefit their audience.

Thank you Jeff!

Thank you, Jeff, for all of your help and also for agreeing to come on and do two separate recordings so we could get the time travel effect here, which was awesome!

Leave Me a Voicemail!

Every once and a while, I’ll be recording podcast episodes that are completely driven and made up of questions asked by you, so if you have any questions you’d like potentially answered on the show, simply record a voicemail over on my Speakpipe Page.

Help Out the Show!

And lastly, if you haven’t done so already I would love if you took a minute to leave a quick rating and honest review of the podcast on iTunes by clicking on the link below! It would be extremely helpful for the show and I’m aiming for 1000 5-star ratings before the end of the year! We are currently at 981 5-star ratings, so we’re almost there!

Thank you in advance!
