Tim Ferriss: How to Create a Bestseller

Leo Babauta has a good interview with 4-Hour Workweek author Tim Ferriss on his WriteToDone.com blog. Tim delves into the route he took to turn his book into a bestseller.

Here are my four big takeaways from the Q&A:

  1. Your title is crucial. It can make or break the success of your book. Take time crafting and testing to find the best one.

  2. Get to know bloggers -- but don't push your book too hard. Be human.

  3. It's visible retail placement and not the mainstream media that usually propels a book to the bestseller lists.

  4. Focus on making yourself a credible expert vs. pushing a book (which ties back into #2).

Tim also outlined his publishing story on his own blog here.

Interesting reading.
