“Before selfpublishing.com I had written a book but didn't know what to do with it. I shipped the manuscript to publishers and never heard back. selfpublishing.com gave me a plan, accountability, and a community, which helped answer my questions and get the book noticed. My first book, Speak with No Fear, has sold over 40,000 copies. I accepted a traditional publishing deal by Wiley for my next book – Speak with Confidence.”
Author of the ‘Speak with No Fear'

Matthew Mead: Inside Sales Rep
“When I first got into sales in college I always hoped to find a position eventually that checked six main boxes. Selling a product that I love. Having a sales conversation with ambitious, creative people about something they are genuinely passionate about. Working remotely from home. Consistent, high-quality inbound leads with phenomenal marketing support. Working with a team of other top 1% performers. High-income earning potential + great benefits. Selfpublishing.com checks all of those boxes and more.”
Nate Hambrick: Inside Sales Rep
“I can honestly say that selfpublishing.com has been the best work situation I have ever had. I don't know of any other companies that have as phenomenal a team as this one does. Great sales reps sell great products for great companies and I feel confident bringing clients in knowing they will be taken care of and knowing they will be glad they used our services to get their books published.”
