Not everyone is going to love your story or your thoughts but you need to seek out the people that do.

 

I've always loved a series. I have a couple of characters that I read about as soon as the next book comes out. People like to follow the life of a character that they can relate to or that entertains them. A series book can almost guarantee that your fans will be waiting with anticipation for the next book to come out so they can see what happens next.

 

Some great writers don't get the most out of self publishing because they are writers not business people. With that being said know your abilities and limitations, self publishing means you are the "go to" person for every decision. You need to be a great writer and a great business person.

 

When I say know your limitations I don't mean you shouldn't self publish if you don't have a sense for marketing or sales I only mean you need to get help with the things you aren't good at. There are many options available to in self publishing today that makes it easy for anyone to get their book published.

 

You can be a great author and the world deserves to experience your creativity.

Five Book Marketing Ideas That Will Sell Your Book By Hae Debenham

Posted by Louise Findlay on January 4, 2013 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

No best-selling book has ever achieved success without some sort of hard work. Even renowned authors were put through the wringer before finally getting published and being widely read. It takes efforts, patience, and book marketing ideas that will take you from unidentified writer to best-selling author. Listed here are five of those marketing suggestions to consider.

 

Grow your online presence. If you don't have a website yet, get one made. If you aren't in any social media community, join in one. You can drum up more attention for your book if you include a testimonial page on your website, persuade folks to review your book on your Facebook page, become visible on Twitter, consider having Q and A sessions on Google+, and optimize your web page for SEO. People find out more about new books on the web compared to what they do from friends, book shops, or the advertising. Social networking sites build a new amount of word-of-mouth marketing that has allowed readers to take discover of new authors. So, increase your online presence.

 

Don't be put off by technology and trends, and apply ebook marketing. Plenty of writers now have ebook versions of their pieces. In the past couple of years BookStats reports that adult fiction has pushed ebook profits to $1.27 billion and children's ebook revenue have tripled today. With 84 million units of iPads delivered worldwide and reading tablets stepping up delivery of their own products, you shouldn't disregard the profitable opportunities of electronic book marketing.

 

Let a professional deal with your ebook strategy. For a smallest investment, you can get numerous submissions of your book to topnotch ebook promotion websites, get Twitter campaigns, and benefit from other strategic campaigns, such as a competition for a fan review, to improve awareness for your book.

 

Tour your book on the Internet. Promote your book on blog sites that are connected to your genre or to your particular market. This is an excellent way to get people to take a look at your book and allowing them to sort of distribute the good word about it to others in their network. When you grow a community, you eventually build a group of followers.

 

Build your online credibility and become an expert. This is especially important for authors of self-help or "how-to" books. Develop web videos. Discover about becoming active on LinkedIn Answers. Don't ever ignore an opportunity to respond to fan questions about your book. Eventually, when you develop ample awareness about your credentials and knowledge on a particular topic, your book (or books) will effortlessly get promoted, too.

 

Marketing an ebook or marketing a book for online market can create profitable effects. You just need to work at it. Be Web savvy. Count on an expert to help you with your campaigns. Create your brand. And who knows, the book you finished several years ago might just help you become a best-selling writer today.
