Sponsor My Book

For years I've had the idea of writing a book in the back of my head, but it was never clear to me what the direction would be. Until now. The book I'm writing is called "Creativity For Sale." I'll be sharing stories about how I got paid to wear t-shirts for a living for nearly five years, how I auctioned off my last name, and I'll also be featuring other creative entrepreneurs I've connected with along the way. I want to share my lessons learned, case studies from projects I've been a part of, and of course, stories from the sponsors of the book.

I'm not using a big book publisher, a high-paid book agent, or any other standard book publishing tactics. Just as this book will explain, I want to use my creativity to make this book a reality. With your help, this book will be on shelves of bookstores everywhere!

Who Is the Man Behind the Book?

iwearyourshirt.com

In 2008 I created a company that monetized free social media platforms and offered unique exposure for businesses. For the past five years I've been wearing shirts for a living and continuing to try to grow IWearYourShirt. In that time, I've worked with over 1,500 companies, wearing their shirts and marketing them in creative ways. Similar to IWearYourShirt, I'm offering sponsorship space yet again, but this time it's not on my chest, it's in the 200 pages of my book. The sponsors of this book aren't just helping cover the costs of writing and marketing the book, they're integral to the story and will get some great exposure along the way.  

BuyMyLastName.com

In 2012, after unexpected family circumstances, I made the decision to sell my last name to the highest bidder. I set up an auction website called BuyMyLastName, and when the auction ended the final price was $45,500, won by Headsets.com. Knowing I was going to write this book, I decided to auction off my name again in 2013 for a second and final time. The 2013 auction ended with a winning bid of $50,000 to Surfr. In this book I'll break down all the details of how I took BuyMyLastName from an idea in a notebook to a successful marketing campaign that was profitable and received national media attention.

The Book You’re Sponsoring

“Creativity For Sale”

About the Book

Unlike most authors who write a book first and then market it, I'm going the reverse route. That's right, this book isn't written yet, but it will be as soon as it's sponsored. "Creativity For Sale" is about showing any creative person how to make money doing what they love and what they're good at. Whether it's writing, art, music, marketing, design, etc. I'll be sharing my stories and the stories of others who make money using their talents.

PRE ORDERS: May 15, 2014
(Hey, that’s my birthday!)

Why Sell Sponsorships?

My goal is to show people that with a bit of creativity and with a community, you can do things on your own terms. The sponsors of my book will not only get unique exposure, but will help fund the writing, publishing, and marketing of the book!

This idea is an evolution of my story from selling t-shirts, to my last name (twice), and now sponsorships in my book.

Sponsor a Page

All Pages Are Sold!!

At the bottom of all 200 pages of my book is a spot for your company. That spot will offer 140 characters that you can use to describe your company however you like. The page sponsorships do not include a logo and are text only. The sponsorship text will be similar in size, font, and color to the page text.

When the story starts, your company has the chance to be right there. Why is this book 200 pages? Well, if I didn't create a cap for myself, I could probably write double that. I want this book to be something that holds the reader's attention and that they can read in one sitting.

The page sponsorships include one signed copy of the book and a written interview on the Creativity For Sale book website in 2014 (post book launch). Also, in the e-book version, the company URL can be clickable to your website. Purchased sponsors list coming soon.

 

How your page sponsorship will actually look! You get 140 characters to talk about how awesome you are!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is SponsorMyBook?

SponsorMyBook is essentially a crowdfunding campaign to help me write a book without using a big book publishing company or a book agent. I could have used Kickstarter, but aside from thinking 200 individual page rewards would look terrible, I also wanted to keep everything about this book creative and unique. That is the point of the book after all!

What is the title of the book?

The title of the book I am writing is "Creativity For Sale." The title of this website which is just a promotional tool for the book is SponsorMyBook. 

What will "Creativity For Sale" be about?

I'll be sharing stories and lessons I've learned while building innovate businesses over the years. I'll share my struggles, mistakes, and successes during the past five years of running and growing IWearYourShirt.com. I'll talk about the exact things I did to take BuyMyLastName from an idea in a notebook, to a full-fledged auction website in a matter of weeks. I also have a list of creative people who are doing things they love and making money doing them that I'll showcase in the book. Lastly, I'll also be talking about SponsorMyBook and how I looked at the process of writing and marketing a book in a completely different way.

When can I buy the book?

My goal is to have the book written and ready to pre-order on May 15, 2014 (my 32nd birthday). The book will hopefully be on the shelves in bookstores around the world shortly after that. There will be a printed version of the book (hardcover) and an e-book version of the book.

What does a page sponsorship include?

The 200 available page sponsorships include space at the bottom of each page of my book. Page sponsors will have 140 characters to write a message about their company. Page sponsors will be listed chronologically on this website. Page sponsors will receive a signed copy of the book. And page sponsors will get a written interview on the Creativity For Sale book website in 2014.

Why does a page sponsorship decrease by $3 each page?

Because it's unique! My first business venture IWearYourShirt launched with a creative $1 per day pricing model and I wanted to do something similar with SponsorMyBook. People read books from front to back, so it made sense to price the beginning of the book higher and countdown to the last page.

Will the book itself actually be red?

I think so. Obviously the book cover hasn't been designed completely yet, but I like the color red for a book. This could change, but I'll of course let everyone who is sponsoring this project know if a change occurs. 

Where can I follow the progress of the book?

Sign up for the SponsorMyBook Email List and I'll be sending updates to that list on the progress of the book. I'll also be writing blog posts on JasonSadler.com about the book and any major updates. In 2014 when the Creativity For Sale website launches, this website will redirect there.

If this book was a sports team, what would it's mascot be?

It would have to be a platypus. While a platypus might be looked at as "mother nature's mistake," it's such a versatile animal. It's part beaver, part duck, part otter, part awesome. Did you know they store fat in their tail? Amazing. A perfect mascot for this book if you ask me.
