ShoeMoney Book FAQ – Yes People outside the USA can buy it for the same price

by Jeremy Schoemaker on January 8, 2013 · 32 comments

Got some questions about the book launch today.  Its off and running!!!!  Here is a link to buy it if you have not already:

Q: I saw the book for FREE on amazon this morning but now its $9.95 whats up ?

A: I enrolled the book in KDP select and allowed Amazon to offer it for free daily.  Its a new program where they pay you back for giving it away but they control it.  I was invited to the program so I got some extra perks.  But yes its possible you can see it for free (for the ebook).   It was downloaded for free like 10,000 times this morning so not sure how much more they want to pay me for =P.


Q: I am not in the USA and when I go to buy it on Amazon in my country it shows the same price as $2500 usd for your book!!! WTF!!!!!

A: yes I know when I did the “I’ll put your companies logo in my book if you buy it for $2500″ it never updated the price on Amazon (but I did raise a ton of money for charity!) .  I called about this today and they said for countries outside the USA it can take up to 6 weeks!!!!!!

But good news!  You can buy it on create space and get the 14.95 price

Funny unintentional marketing note:  More foreign people tweeted/facebook about the price being so high that I think it helped spread the word about the book.  


Q: Can you sign my copy?

A: Sure send it to ShoeMoney, 1316 N ST lincoln NE 68508 with return shipping label attached and I will sign it ;).


Q: Is the book in color.

A: The e-book is in color.  The print version is not. (its like 3x as much to have a printed color book).


Q: How much money are you making off the book?

A: Its like 70% of ebook and 35% of print.  But I used my amazon link to promote it so I get another 7%.


Q: I live in Nebraska can I come buy it and hang out?

A: I honestly would rather you wouldn’t.  We don’t have time to chat.  I am very active in my company and very busy.  Sorry to sound like a jerk.


Also if your going to Affiliate Summit West next week make sure to bring your books and come to MaxBounty’s booth #515 the last 2 hours of the first day of the exhibit hall.

I just received an email that linked to it as a free book today at amazon, went there and found out it was $10.01. I came to your site to see if you were giving them away, here, and find you have your own sales link that leads to the book being priced at $14.95.

I would have thought someone who’d made as much money as you on the net, would give the book away for free, at your site, with a sign up to your mailing list. That way you would gained new people to sell affiliate products to.

I won’t be one of them, because the price of the book has put me off (esp. you linking to it with a cost of $5 more than amazon). As well, most Kindle books are under $5, not double or triple that. so this looks like it was just intended as a quick money. It’s great to make money but even better if you have integrity behind the wheeling and dealing.

I don’t understand why you are angry about this, it is his autobiography, I don’t know many people who would give away their autobiography for free.

21 Newton

hope you make lots of $$$!!!!

22 Eric

Does Amazon let you double dip like that? HA HA! Looks like a great read I will be checking it out soon. Maybe you could offer me a signed copy for contest on my blog sometime!

24 Tim Miller

Thanks for the further information about your new great book Jeremy. This is actually the kind of inspiring book that is worth checking out for me in 2013 because i kind of really need some huge motivation and inspiration to build my blog.


25 faisal

I got it for free on Amazon kindle.

26 Sam

Shoe — what should people in the Uk do who want a signed copy?

Can I not buy a signed copy direct anyway – instead of waiting for a hard copy to reach uk, then post it back to the states???


27 Marianne

Read the book. Loved it. Honestly hadn’t heard of you before it was released, but I admire what you have done and your honesty in portraying your life. Thank you for sharing, it is encouraging to those of us trying to follow our crazy ADD dreams too!

28 Chris

I’m not going to lie, I saw it for $0.00 and grabbed it immediately :)

29 Sico Petroff

Really you know much about online business and affiliate marketing. I’m sure that your book will help to many people and will give them the best – to try and to develop.
