Hey, readers! The Black Friday weekend sale is still here! And today is extra special because it’s Small Business Saturday!
Last month, I sent my newsletter subscribers one of my famed surveys, and guess what I found out? The #1 reason you listed for shopping directly with me is because you LOVE supporting small business.
As a small business owner, I constantly hear the slogans about “shop small!” etc., especially this time of year. And as a socially-conscious Millennial, I myself love to support small businesses. But until now, I had no idea that supporting small, independent creators like me was important to you, too. I’m really touched by your dedication. THANK YOU.
#ShopSmall with today’s top picks!
With that in mind, I thought I’d pull back the curtain a little and show you how things work when you shop directly with me:
When you shop on my website, not only do I receive more revenue, I also get access to the funds way faster. Interesting fact: It takes Amazon two months to pay out, and Ingram, which distributes to libraries and retailers, takes four months. But when you shop directly on my website, the money is deposited in my bank account the very next day. This makes it quicker and easier for my business to adapt to circumstances–which has been super important in 2020!
Of course, no matter where you get my books, you are still supporting my business. I may have to share proceeds with other players sometimes, but I’m happy to make my books available to you wherever you like to get them. (In fact, need the link to Amazon? Here it is! Shop on Amazon. Just keep in mind that the Black Friday Sale is only happening here on my website!)
But it’s because of this love you show me year-round that I like to hold this annual Black Friday Sale here on my website. It’s my way of saying THANKS to you. Thank you for buying my books, for talking about them non-stop to your friends, and for keeping in touch with me via this blog, Facebook, and my newsletter.
Your support means the world to me!
