Paul Teague authorWelcome to Paul's Podcast Diary for Saturday 24th September 2016.

This diary charts my self-publishing journey – the ups the downs, the successes and the failures.

Everything goes into this diary, week-by-week, but you'll also find it a source of great tips, resources, tools, podcast recommendations and so on.

If I ever miss something out, or you'd like more information, just drop me an email at paul@paulteague.com.

Paul's Podcast Diary

1) The thrill of finding this podcast via Netflix!

2) Here is the first trial podcast I ever recorded! https://web.archive.org/web/20120511164308/https://www.web-work-at-home.com/gavin-mountford.html

This was a very early test in 2011/2012 – I'm amazed that the audio still works!

3) That Einstein quote is “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

4) Frankfurt Indie Author Fringe 2016: https://selfpublishingadvice.org/fbf-indie-author-fringe-2016-speakers/

5) ProWriting Aid (for editing): https://prowritingaid.com/ [I use the paid-for version]

6) My WordPress For Authors In One Hour: https://paulteague.com/webinar25 [Webinar is scheduled for 25th Sept 2016]

7) My appearance at the Borderlines Festival:

8) Forthcoming guest – Andrew Bromley from Ingram Spark: https://www.ingramspark.com/

9) Intuit Self-Employed software: https://www.quickbooks.co.uk/accounting-software/self-employed/

10) Facebook lead ad results:

157 leads for £218.15 = £1.38 per lead

Skewed by two campaigns that DIDN’T work … costs of those leads was WAY too high

Removing skewed results, £161.03 for 144 leads for successful campaigns = £1.11 per lead … still too expensive

This is my box set ‘upsell' page – I use this with lead cards to try and squeeze a bigger sale out of the arrangement: https://thesecretbunker.net/box-sets/

11) Recording my ALLi presentation this week:
