All About Getting Right on Online Book Marketing.

There is something I have to confess, I am bad at marketing. The twist is that I can get good results if I put my mind into it. 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. It doesn’t get better on matters to do with monitoring traffic or writing marketing emails. These are things that I would rather someone else do them. However, you will have to do all this if you have decided to publish a book independently. If this is what you have been struggling with then this article will be very helpful. There are pointers you will get on what areas you are weak at and what you can do to streamline the process. 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. Unless yours is a household name already this is not what will happen. 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 your book is in, there is likely to be more than 2 million copies on Amazon. That competition is very stiff. The odds are in your favor as opposed to launching a Youtube channel but better than being chosen to be the president of the class in high school. Amazon will not promote your work unless you have amassed at least 25 reviews. If this is not happening and you are not marketing your book, chances are you will be at the end of the pile in the genre. 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. 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 all about connecting with other people which is why you need to do that all the time. If you follow many established authors you will realize that they mostly talk about the things that happen in their daily lives. Whether it is about their dogs, failures or even opinions, it all goes up.
