What You Should Know About This Year
Everything You Need to Know on Book Marketing Online.
There is something I have to confess, I am bad at marketing. However, the point is that I can do it well if I committed my mind. You can even call me an expert at marketing but the problem is that I am very lazy. I don’t push myself enough when it comes to setting up PPC, posting on social media or even creating articles for my blog. It doesn’t get better on matters to do with monitoring traffic or writing marketing emails. I am happy delegating that task to someone else. However, you will have to do all this if you have decided to publish a book independently. If you have come here looking for information that will help you improve on those areas then you are in luck because I will hold your hand on that. I am here to show you the areas you need to change on and how you can become better. The first step is publishing and being optimistic.
You should not be writing a book with the hope that people will buy it because that is less likely to happen. Unless you are famous, this will always be a dream. Looking at Amazon, there are more than six million ebooks at the moment. No matter the genre you pick, you will realize there are more than 2 million books already. Thus, do not take the competition for granted. 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. Amazon will not promote your work unless you have amassed at least 25 reviews. Progress will not happen if you do not have the reviews and you are not bothered when it comes to marketing the book. Anyone who wants to build an audience should not take a backseat in marketing.
You need to post your book links on Twitter. Joining a writing community is important for Twitter users. The writing community is not some kind of magic too because you will also be competing against everyone in the circle who has published a book which means you have to offer them a reason to go ahead and check out yours. Social media is there for people to link about and the sooner you start communing the better. Check any established author’s feed and you will get information about their lives in there. They post about their failures and successes, their dogs, and even their opinions on various matters.
