12 Reasons

.

Writing a book and then promoting it, are two different things… Don’t forget: Writing is an art – publishing a business!  You are a very talented author who has written a fantastic book, or even several – but the publishing / promoting process is an adventure and it can take up quite some of your valuable writing time. So it is smart to get professional help, especially when it is so easy and inexpensive, and when you can learn a lot about publishing and publicizing your future books. 

.

12 Main Reasons to Choose our Valuable Book Marketing Help:

  1. Introduction of your book on dozens of Google+ reader communities with a 60,000+ audience
  2. Unlimited book marketing consultations by email for up to three months

  • “Thank you so much. You are amazing, so helpful to all of us who are starting down the road of self publishing. I just printed that blog post off this morning and will start to act on it today. You are an inspiration. Thanks again for everything.”

We will explain you the benefits of various steps in building the platform for you as an author and how you can establish a brand without incurring extra cost, such as expensive ads or how to avoid costly POD’s.

Even if You Landed a Publishing Deal…

.

In my last post I explained the reasons why I created an individual online Book Marketing seminar for authors, using one-on-one instruction. To get help in promoting a book is not only important for self-publishers, but also in case you landed a publishing deal.  Your publisher will NOT place ads in the NY Times, book promotion is up to YOU!  The first questions a literary agent or a publisher will ask you: What is your platform? Who are your target readers? How will you promote your book?
.

.

Are you one of those writers, hiding behind your laptop, terrified at the thought of “marketing”, because your skill is writing – not marketing? Authors need BOOK PROMOTION, but don’t want to appear like a “used car salesman”.  However remember: “Nobody ever made money writing a book – only by selling it”.
The Most Valuable Book Marketing Help You Can Get ! 

Individual training and customized marketing consultations for your book at an amazing offer!!! Register now to get started on your road to success: Book now, in November or December, and get 3 months of individual marketing training & promotion for your book – for only $59.00.   Regular price after December 31, 2012 will be $98.00.
.

This extensive training / consulting package which gives you:

Do Book Distributors Market and Sell Your Work?

.

Sue Collier:  The short answer is NO… They are delivering your book from where it is ordered.  Actively promoting is the job of the author – even at most publishing houses, where your book is one of thousand others among many, often famous and established authors.  And if you have written only one book, marketing is so much harder.  Even if someone buys the book and likes it, they are expecting the next one soon from you – or they turn to other authors.

Book Marketing must not be costly,  we gave you lots of tips in this blog already. Type “Book Marketing” into the search function (upper right hand side, next to the headline, with the magnifier glass symbol) and you will find dozens, if not hundreds of valuable tips on book marketing “on a shoestring”.

Read this eye-opening blog by Sue Collier from Self-Publishing-Resources.

She tells you the hard truth about first-time, one-book-authors and book promotion. However, she also tells you
how distribution works and how you, as an author can boost book sales by converting it in an e-book and
using all these free promotion tools including social media, the Internet offers now.

And if you have any tips and success stories how promotion for your book worked, let us know here.
