Women: How to Find a Publisher For Your Book

Adriana Monique Alvarez has created a new framework for female authors prepared to pioneer their path in book publishing, redefining the traditional publishing model in a revolutionary way that offers a path to financial freedom for thousands of women.

The Wall Street Journal best-selling author and business coach has established a dynamic new publishing style where women deliver their message through books as part of an immersive business model.

“Finding a publisher is much easier than you think. It is right in front of you – look in the mirror,” she says.

Traditional publishing models are obsolete, says Alvarez, dominated by men in an industry that has failed to adapt to changing social environments. “Mainstream publishing houses dump on self-publishing. They called it ‘vanity publishing’ to create a negative impression. Through self-publishing, I have learned how to marry the savvy digital world and business to books that promote practical solutions within the relevant marketplace.”

Her company, AMA Publishing has developed boutique methods that create generational wealth through high-impact, high-earning publishing businesses. With six successful books under her belt, Alvarez has walked the walk. Her methods position books that transform writers into entrepreneurs by springboarding readership to other services and financial freedom. 

“Turning a book into a business has worked for men such as Robert Kiyosaki who built a $100 million seminar industry from his Rich Dad, Poor Dad. It’s time for women to tell their stories without waiting for an invitation to succeed.”

Turning dreams into reality for women

Alvarez took her sharp intellect to deconstruct the publishing industry for her business consultancy clients who talked about authoring books of their own. “I had heard these dreams for long enough, and I just said, ‘well, for crying out loud. I guess you’re not going to do it’. So I researched the industry and found niche gaps and open invitations for inspired entrepreneurs to fill.” She knew she had to make the first move. “I started a publishing house for my books and grew it from there. It was a steep learning curve,” she says.

As a world-leading business consultant and veteran of 12 years of building educational modalities, she brought all of her experience to bear when tailoring her boutique publishing curriculum. “My specialty is to take well-organized ideas and promote them through a book,” she says. Her company links books about alternative healing, food, lifestyle, business coaching, therapy, and a range of other professions to the services provided by the author. “A book bestows gravitas on the writer, so I see an expert that is the foundation of a profitable business. Books can lead to podcasts, high-end coaching, and public speaking engagements. My clients are not content to leave the stage to the likes of Tony Robbins.”  

Alvarez, who has mentored more than 2500 women, has witnessed her graduates make $100,000 to $500,000 in their publishing companies. Some AMA alumni have netted $75,000 from a book’s launch and then earned monthly revenues from $8,000-$30,000. Traditional book publishing usually projects that most first-time authors will make about $10,000 – in total.

In two years, she has championed 150 women to become best-selling authors. Today her company represents only writers who are ready to achieve bestseller status with The Wall Street Journal. However, she streams new talent to associated successful publishing houses led by her proteges.

Forging a new path

By taking control and running your own book publishing company, Alvarez believes that writers and entrepreneurs can bypass the stumbling blocks thrown up by traditional publishing. “I teach people how to set up and run a publishing business,” she says. “There are so many women who want to tell their story. They just need someone to come along and show them how it’s done; this is what you can do, and here is the next step.” 

The way forward is to avoid the well-worn path to an agent and publisher; “After you pitch your book and get rejection after rejection, you will be convinced that you’re not good enough, and you’ll move on with your life. Old school publishing is largely a negative process for new writers, but you have to tell yourself, ‘yes, I am worthy’, and skirt the traditional system, and make your presence known to us.”

Her graduates embrace ambitious millennials who are on track to running a seven-figure business. Others include women making a career jump, and some that want to leave a legacy for their children. From young to old, she teaches them how to get published.

However, getting a book onto the shelves and out through Amazon is just one aspect of creating a business. “Reaching the number one position on Amazon can be taught, but that is not the point of writing a book.” She says that harnessing communities and self-exploration are essential to writing, researching, and editing. “My clients often find answers to philosophical questions including why they are doing what they do, what values they hold, what they stand for and who they are by going through the vigorous process of writing.”

An author also creates a solid community of people interested in what they are doing and their journey. “This community helps the author to grow and to sell their products or services,” she says.

Ordinary people with extraordinary stories

Alvarez believes that her students are ordinary people with extraordinary stories to tell. She has also survived through catastrophe, having endured the stillbirth of her daughter Nina while living in Albania. 

“Having success and optimism is one part of the picture that also reaches into grief, pain, and loss. The method that I teach is a deep process and has an emotional impact on women as they explore past experiences that may include trauma, violence, and loss. If I had not swum in deep waters, I don’t think I could teach the course,” she says.

Alvarez released her latest book, How to Create a Six-Figure Publishing Business in June 2021. Then, in July, she will launch The Younger Self Letters – How Successful Leaders Turn Trials into Triumphs. Both books are already bestsellers on Amazon, giving further inspiration to a broad audience of women for whom she holds the key to a new path in publishing success.

Michelle has been a part of the journey ever since Bigtime Daily started. As a strong learner and passionate writer, she contributes her editing skills for the news agency. She also jots down intellectual pieces from categories such as science and health.

VPNRanks Report Uncovers User Discontent with Majority of VPN Services

mm

Published

on

A groundbreaking report by VPNRanks reveals significant user dissatisfaction with the majority of VPN services, showing that 89% of VPNs globally fail to meet user satisfaction standards. This revelation comes at a critical time when digital security is paramount, and the demand for reliable VPN services continues to rise.

The Importance of User Satisfaction in the VPN industry

According to industry statistics from Global Market Insights, the global VPN market size was valued at USD 45 billion in 2022 and is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 20% from 2023 to 2032. Driven by the growing instances of cybercrimes and data thefts, coupled with the increasing proliferation of wireless devices and digital infrastructures across industries, user satisfaction remains a critical challenge for many providers. High user satisfaction is essential for customer retention, brand reputation, and long-term success in the competitive VPN market.

“User satisfaction is the cornerstone of success in the VPN industry. In a market flooded with options, it’s the real user experiences that set the leading providers apart. VPNScore helps users navigate this complex landscape by highlighting services that excel in meeting user expectations,” said Muhammad Saleem Ahrar, COO of webAffinity, the team behind VPNRanks.

VPNRanks is a leading VPN review platform that leverages sentiment analysis to provide comprehensive and unbiased reviews of VPN services. Its VPNScore is based on an AI-driven analysis of publicly available user reviews. The platform aims to simplify the process of identifying the best VPN provider tailored to each user’s unique needs.

VPNRanks Untangles Complex Findings on Key Features

VPNRanks evaluated four key features — ease of use, ease of setup, ability to meet user requirements, and quality of support — to identify the VPN companies that excel at customer satisfaction. To determine a final rank for each metric, VPNRanks combined a popularity score, which contributed 20 percent of the total, with a satisfaction score, which contributed 80 percent.

The study sifted through reviews on 93 paid VPN companies to determine the top providers. The VPNRanks report, issued in June 2024, provides rankings for each key feature and overall customer satisfaction. ExpressVPN achieved the top VPNScore — 6.29 out of 10 — for overall satisfaction globally. The next four top companies in that category, listed in descending order, are PureVPN, NordVPN, PrivateVPN, and Surfshark.

By assessing a variety of categories, the VPNRanks study reveals the challenges users face when trying to identify the best option to meet their needs. For example, NordVPN received a nearly perfect popularity score of 9.46 out of 10 but only a 4.7 satisfaction score. PrivateVPN received a satisfaction score of 6.69 out of 10, which rivaled ExpressVPN’s score in that category, but received a popularity score of only 1.23 out of 10.

The global rankings for ease of use illustrate how challenging identifying a quality provider can be. VeePN received a very high satisfaction score of 7.18 out of 10 while receiving a popularity score of less than 1 out of 10. The findings reveal a gap between user experience and market penetration that can effectively keep the best option hidden from the consumer.

The VPNRanks report gives users insight into satisfaction and popularity while providing a balanced assessment via its VPNScore. “Users should choose based on their priorities, whether it’s user satisfaction, market presence, or a balanced option,” the report states.

VPNRanks Shows Providers How to Become More Competitive

In addition to serving as a guide for consumers, VPNRanks also maps out a pathway for VPN providers seeking greater market share. The VPN providers that consistently appear in the top spots on the VPNRanks charts are those that have achieved a balance between popularity and user satisfaction. Those who neglect one or the other cannot keep pace with market leaders.

The report explains that those with high satisfaction scores but low popularity “might be well-loved by their users but need to increase their market visibility to compete more effectively.” Achieving overall success in the VPN market requires balancing user satisfaction with market presence, it advises.

Conclusion

As the need for VPN services continues to grow, businesses can expect to see more providers enter the market, making the task of identifying the best option more difficult. The insights VPNRanks provides stand as a timely beacon, guiding users to providers who can satisfy their needs and support their operations.
