Tips for The Average Joe

All About Getting Right on Online Book Marketing.

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. I can get great results in matters to do with marketing if I was not a lazy person. I drag my feet to write blog articles for my website and I don’t post as much as I should on social media and setting up PPC is a long process for me. 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. Even so, it is not something independent publishers do not have many options. 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. Only famous people have this privilege. Looking at Amazon, there are more than six million ebooks at the moment. No matter the genre your book is in, there is likely to be more than 2 million copies on Amazon. That competition is very stiff. 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. You have the potential to build a better clientele which is why you should be proactive when it comes to building your clientele.

You need to post your book links on Twitter. If you join a writing community you will gain better visibility. 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. Check any established author’s feed and you will get information about their lives in there. This can be touching on their opinions, failures, as well as successes.
