Everything You Need to Know on Book Marketing Online.
If you thought you sucked at marketing then you are not alone because it is not my strong point either. This is not because I am not aware of what I am doing because I can market well. I would like to call myself an expert at the task but the problem is my laziness. I am not disciplined in investing time to write the blogs, post on my social media pages or even set up a PPC. I’m also not that enthusiastic about writing marketing emails or even monitoring traffic either. These are things that I would rather someone else do them. Nonetheless, the delegation process will not work for many independent publishers. If that’s your plan then this is just the right article for you. I am here to show you the areas you need to change on and how you can become better. When you are publishing your book you need to be hopeful that things will work out for the best.
When you sit aside and hope that your book will be picked by many people who read it you will be in for a rude awakening. Only famous people have this privilege. You can go through Amazon to see how high the number of ebooks is at the moment, and you should not forget that more keep coming in all the time. No matter the genre you pick, you will realize there are more than 2 million books already. This tells you that the competition is not a joke. You odds at being found on Amazon are better as opposed to publishing a Youtube video but better than being elected class president in high school. Another thing you have to bear in mind is that Amazon will not be large on promoting your work until you have a minimum of twenty-five reviews. If this is not the case and you are not doing much to market your books then you will remain at the end of the line. You have the potential to build a better clientele which is why you should be proactive when it comes to building your clientele.
Get on Twitter and keep sharing your book links. There are various writing communities on Twitter and you need to join at least one of them. Nevertheless, everyone in the community is likely to have a book and it only takes convincing for them to check out your books. Social media is there for people to link about and the sooner you start communing the better. If you follow many established authors you will realize that they mostly talk about the things that happen in their daily lives. This can be touching on their opinions, failures, as well as successes.
