Limiting Belief #4: It takes too long to get my book designed.

March 27, 2018

Well, it certainly can. Traditional book designers take one and a half to two years to get your book done. Often, by that time, the information that you’ve put in your book is outdated and no longer applies, and then your book becomes pretty much useless.

The so-called hybrid publishers can take months, as well as the vanity presses that I talked about before and the unscrupulous freelancers that you’ll find on places like Fivver and Upwork. All of these places take, at the very least, more than a month, sometimes several months, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

At JETLAUNCH, we get your first design done in seven days or less. Now, why does everyone else take so long? I have no idea. Why are we so fast? Well, there are a couple of reasons. One, we just jump in and get going. We don’t dilly-dally around. The Amish have a saying: “If you have something difficult to do, just jump in and get going. Before you know it, it’s almost done.”

Now, we don’t just do this willy-nilly or haphazardly. We have very precise systems and documentation that we follow. We have a checklist that we use for every step of the way, and we have well over 100, probably close to 200 tasks on that checklist so that we don’t miss anything.

When your manuscript comes in, part of the reason it gets done so quickly is because we’re using very precise systems and checklists. We also have very high-quality designers. One of my print designers, for example, worked in traditional publishing for over 10 years. She’s extremely good at what she does. Everybody that works for us has a lot of experience, and they’ve passed my exacting standards and are very good at what they do.

A better question you might ask is, “Seven days? What takes you so long?” We actually want to get that down even shorter. I see no reason why we can’t get the process down to two full days, and then your design is done. If we have these precise systems and these high-quality professionals that work for us and know what they’re doing, then they can definitely get your design done in that amount of time. We’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen. We’ll hire better designers. We’ll hire more designers. We are dedicated to making things happen for you.
