WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED?
This is a purely DIY course therefore there is NO SUPPORT via email, messenger or otherwise.
Why? Because there is tons of value in doing things at your own pace and for this super budget friendly cost we don’t have capacity to answer the tons of emails we get.
Support is only available as part of the Branded Books Community which only opens a few times per year. The monthly membership gives you access to get support, ask questions and a boost to help your sales.
When you join Branded Books you’ll automatically be added to our VIP email list to let you know when this opens.
I’M NOT A DESIGNER?
You don’t need to have a creative bone in your body. Canva is a completely free tool that gives you inspiration and a super easy way to create your books.
If you are a designer, then go for it. What a great way to showcase your skills and portfolio through the medium of books on an international stage.
DO I NEED FANCY SOFTWARE?
Nope. One of our core values is to show you how to do all this with completely free tools.
WILL MY HOUSE BE FULL OF INVENTORY?
Nope. The beauty of what I teach you means you don’t have to guesstimate inventory or clog up your house with unsold Branded Books.
You create your book. Someone orders it. It gets printed (not by you) and shipped automatically to the customer. Even if they ask for a refund it doesn’t affect you as you are not the seller.
DO I HAVE TO PAY TAX?
It is your responsibility to create your account and add your tax details for the part of the world you reside in so you keep your account in good standing.
Make sure you have a method of receiving income before you join us e.g. bank account or Payoneer account
Please read our Ts+Cs carefully before purchasing (link to Ts+Cs at the checkout and you must tick to agree).
Due to the nature of this being a digital product, you get immediate access therefore you waive your right to a refund as soon as you purchase the product.
Therefore we advise to be sure before you go through checkout and purchase.
