I’m writing a book called Angular for Rails Developers. I’ve pre-sold 8 copies. The book, which is pretty much done by now, will be released on August 30th.
I have a list of 440 people (and counting) to whom I’m going to do a big launch sequence leading up to the big day.
I figure that if I’m going to expend all this energy on a launch, why not add a bigger product onto it since I’ve always planned to eventually add a bigger product anyway.
So I’m planning to also sell on 8/30. It’s a course that includes:
- Four interactive teaching sessions (one per week for four weeks)
- A free copy of Angular for Rails Developers ($49 value)
- A reasonable amount of email support
- Access to private Slack organization
- Recordings of all sessions
Does that seem like a good idea? Can you guys think of a) any reason why my idea is dumb or b) anything that I could easily add that I haven’t thought of yet?
Keep in mind that it’s pretty much all I can do between now and 8/30 to wrap up the book and create the launch sequence, so that’s a big part of why I’m not creating any assets or anything for this particular course. I’m thinking that if people buy this course, then I can create another more substantial course afterward and charge more for it.
