Michelle has an understanding of Amazon that trumps anybody else’s I know. That’s why I nicknamed her the “Amazon Whisperer!” If you are selling a book online and need somebody to show you the ropes, don’t walk, but run to Michelle Vandepas.

Business Owners / Entrepreneurs: Let's collaborate on your bestselling book!

Perhaps you've thought about writing a book, but don’t have the time? Or you are secretly scared you’ll put out a crappy book or don’t know what you’d say? (been there, done that). Most entrepreneurs know that having a book would be good for business but don’t know how to get it done or if it is really a project worth exploring. I’m here to tell you that publishing a book isn't just for motivational speakers, self-help gurus, and coaches; all business owners can benefit from having a book.

It doesn’t matter what type of business you have. Heating and air conditioning, a marketing agency, tire store, or a gift store. If you are brick and mortar, online, or a combination of all of the above, any type of business can benefit. Your book will connect you with your potential clients and offer a way to reach out to a new market that may not have heard of you before. Your book will also establish yourself as the best in the business. Having a published paperback book cements your expertise and authority in your industry. It will make you stand out from the competition. (Imagine sending a copy of your book to your next prospect, and then closing the sale because of additional credibility!)

I’m Michelle Vandepas and together with my co-founder in our publishing company we have helped thousands of authors over the years write and publish their books in every genre imaginable. (and by far, business books have the best ROI).

I’m sure you have questions: for instance, I’m often asked, how many books will I sell? Will I get my investment back from book sales? The quick answer is probably not, but we know ROI comes in many ways. You will get your investment back with closed clients, more sales, the admiration of your clients, competitors, repeat business, new markets, and a new way to reach potential customers.

In your book we can ask people to sign up for your offers, pick up the phone and call you or book you for a consultation. - But it has to happen strategically. You can't just put a link in your book and think people will click.

(The days of I will write it and make money in my sleep are over. You need a proven plan).

Think of your book as a long-form sales copy with some kick a** stories thrown in. (and I know you have some!) It's your labor of love, your expertise, your legacy, and your lead generation tool!

As entrepreneurs ourselves we know you don’t have time to sit down and write every day. And we also know that you have all the information needed for a book and that is inside your head already.

We have a process that helps business owners get their book out of their head, onto paper and into a manuscript in 90 days.

We help you with every step of the process: Concept, development, ghostwriting, editing, covers, layout, design, publishing, and marketing. Heck, we even pay you royalties!

Here’s what your book can do for you: Generate leads, establish you as the best in the business, help close sales, and most importantly, give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside that YES! You finally did it, you got your book published! (I remember my pride when I handed my first published book to my mom).

This offer isn’t for everyone. This is a mostly ‘done for you’ model, where we work intimately one-to-one with you, the business owner, CEO or founder, with the goal of getting your book written and done and published so you can use it as a sales tool. This program is more intensive than some of our other programs where we coach you or help you craft your book. In this program, we guide and direct you every step of the way, in collaboration, so the book is full of your ideas, your voice, and your experiences, but without the time needed to write every word or the finicky details of which font to choose. You'll have the final say, but our experience will guide you.

So how much time do you need to invest? First, we do an exploratory call with one of our client publishing specialists. If we decide to move to the next level, then ninety minutes with your book publishing specialist will get you started. Then we can meet weekly, or monthly, and you’ll have direct access to your specialist to ask questions and get updates. (We aren’t the kind of publisher that signs you up and then doesn’t communicate). We work with you, and continually push you forward so the project won’t stall out.

However, none of this happens without an initial call with one of our team members to find out if this program is right for you, and right for us. It needs to be a win-win.

This is totally a no-obligation call. You know how this works, it’s a process of finding the right fit. We need people to talk to, and some of you will move forward, and some of you won’t. Some of you will move forward now and some in a year. That’s ok. We want to hear your idea, connect with you, start the process, and see if we are a match and the timing is right now.

We are unlike other companies where we take your money without even knowing anything about your book. So we want a conversation with you first. The relationship between author and publisher is built on trust and collaboration. Let's talk, and build that trust and see if we want to move forward together. Let's find out if we are a good match as a publisher for your book.

Michelle is about results! The information she shares and her instructive style strips away all unnecessary material and dives directly into powerful, useful tools that get results immediately. Everything she shares is current, specific and tested. Her interactive teaching approach allows you to participate in the actual application of the information she presents and see things begin to happen in real time. Michelle’s is a very innovative approach to disseminating specific criteria that is easily and quickly put to use.

With some laser coaching and tweaking from Michelle, I was able to greatly improve the ranking of my Amazon book from being in the thousands to double digits in just a few days!! Michelle provided feedback on the cover, copy formatting and all the book and author details that Amazon has available to help to get books to best seller status. You can see the evolution of my mini-book in the discussion here. This book for me was a bit of an experiment to learn the Amazon process as well as create a cool handout/giveaway for my coaching business; I first published it in 2015, but the cool thing is you can always update, refresh and relaunch your book on Amazon relatively easily. The first version took me just two days to write and submit for publishing! Literally, over a weekend, I had “author” status – how cool is that??

After a few days, I watched as my ranking improved and then went to #1 in my category! I was so excited. I did sell a few books, but being #1 has opened other opportunities, including local media coverage and being asked to do a book signing at our airport book store. Thank you Michelle, I’ll use you again on my next book.

The best thing about working with Michelle was her dedication to her clients, her amazing staff, she follow through with what she tells you she will do, she’s on time, keeps you focused, you feel she wants you to succeed, she is more than a “coach”, she takes pride in your growth. I was reluctant to work with Michelle I did not want to spend more monies on coaching and not getting the results I had hoped for. The results I got from working with Michelle were my book hit #3 on Amazon, radio interviews, amazing web page, great video’s, knowledge in SEO and other marketing issues I did not know anything about before. I’d recommend Michelle for anyone wanting to grow their business.

It was Michelle who introduced the idea of an online launch, what would need to be done to make the book a “best seller” in Amazon and gave support and guidance.  In other words, in this day and age, I’m not sure seeking a traditional publisher makes sense, so the effort that would be needed to find a traditional publisher would be better spent, most likely, in connecting with a small nimble publishing company that can help you with all elements of the publishing, including the marketing elements that will be needed, such as GracePoint Publishing.
