Marketing Tips to Sell Your Book
There is no great secret formula, there is no short-cut. It takes work, a lot of work, to ensure your book is seen, considered, and bought.
Reaching an ‘editor-ready’ stage with your manuscript is a terrific goal. By this point most authors have run out of energy, and desire. The editing process re-kindles that fire for a while. The book is finally distributed and listed for sale – now all you have to do is let people know it is there.
If you are smart, while writing your book, editing, setting up distribution channels, etc., you also publish a regular blog (not entirely about your book!), set up Facebook pages: a personal one and one for your book, Instagram and Twitter.
Your website will advertise your forthcoming book, in the header or sidebar, your blog will be linked with your book; it will be about you, your writing journey but also other interesting topics.
It’s more work – but keep the blog posts short.
- No one has time to read lengthy blogs anymore
