How to Create Excitement Regarding Your New Book:

19 Mar


Once your book is finished and is in your editors hands to be “fine-tuned” you can use the time to prepare for your book launch and to improve even more your marketing efforts:

  • Transfer your book cover-photo to Pinterest.com and Flickr.com and other free-photo pages with a link to your website.
    .
  • Create a short book trailer for YouTube, using images, words or even scenes from your book*
    .
  • Write about your upcoming book launch and post small bits and pieces
    .
  • Get Marketing help at Fiverr.com
    .
  • Ask your friends to “Thumbs up” & “Listmania” your book on Amazon
    .
  • Announce your new book to the Independent Authors Forum
    .
  • Let your followers on Google+, Twitter, Chime.in, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media know about the books “birth”.
    .
  • Create as many free Author Pages as possible, on Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, Wattpad etc.
    .
  • Join even more forums, such as Kindle Forum or the AbsoluteWrite Forum
    .
  • Set up e-Book Launches:

An e-book launch is when you get several (at least 10 – 15) website owners together to promote YOUR e-book all on the same day to their lists by sending out an email or write an article on their blog. The idea of a book launch is to turn the publication of the book into an event.

The key is to find the right joint-venture partners who can get your ebook in front of a lot of targeted traffic, readers who are interested in the kind of book you are selling. Each of your partners gives a bonus that buyers can get when they purchase, which allows your partners to collect names and emails and build their lists with buyers who are more valuable to them than prospects.

    Great ideas! I’m finishing up the final edits on my book of short stories and must soon come up with the courage to let it all go.

    Thanks for the help.

      Hello Bill,
      congratulations!
      Best thing is to start marketing right now. Are you member of any of the writer / reader forums? If not yet, get a Twitter account and sign up for Google and FB. As earlier you start to make friends as easier and faster your book will be known. Once it is printed or e-book formatted send a description and photo from the cover and I will announce it here on this blog.
      I am publishing an e-book with short stories in April. The author is German and I will publish it on Amazon.de, Amazon.co.uk and on Amazon.com.
      Cheers, Doris
