Lots of Competition for Your Book

.

.

In 2012 an estimated 10 to 15 million books will be published. Lots of competition… 

Life as an author can be a lonely one. You can feel overwhelmed by all the choices and options available to you, not sure which direction to go.  Ask yourself: “Are you as well known as you could be as an author?”  “Are your books selling as well as they should do?”  Learn about the difference between the top 3% of bestseller authors and everyone else!

.

You worked very hard to write your book and now it needs to be introduced to your readers. In the last two blog posts I explained how I can help you in individual sessions – customized to your needs – how to establish an author platform, learn the ropes of social media and promote your book at a “next to ZERO” budget.
.

Additionally to this intensive one-on-one Book Marketing Training you will get an article about your book, which will be posted 5 times / week for 3 months to Social Media outlets and blogs – see a complete list in the “About” section – approx. 500 x in total and to at least 125,000 readers, reviewers, followers and friends – and for sure, they will send it to their friends and followers as well.
.

Why should you take advantage of this Book Marketing Training offer?

ONLY sign up when you are really serious about the success of your books!
Please, NOT because of its incredible low introduction price.  And only, if you REALLY want to get professional help for the promoting-part of your book(s)!
.

And here is how it works:

You will be introduced to the seminar page.

1. Step: Click on “Sign up” for this Book Marketing Training
2. Step: Send me your online book sales page link, synopsis of your book & to whom you want to sell it
3. Step: I will buy your book, read it and …. (surprise
4. Step: Write your list of questions and give me the best time for an initial consultation
5. Step: Two or three phone consultations (for a total of three hours)
6. Step: You implement the first steps, and we will have more consultations via phone and email
7. Step: You will receive my new e-book, and an individual to-do lists for further book marketing
8. Step: The article about your book will intensively be distributed via Internet
9. Step: You will be interviewed and this article will be well publicized
10. Step: Your book will be “Book of the Month” as recommendation on a major book lover site

.
Finally: ENJOY YOUR SUCCESS! And don’t forget to tell your fellow writers about this learning opportunity and marketing help, thanks.

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:

  • Three hours of one-on-one “Book Marketing Training” phone-consultations (all topics regarding publishing, promotion, platform & branding, social media, learn about free book marketing possibilities etc.)
  • Unlimited book marketing consultations by email for three months
  • Unlimited social media help by email for three months

How to Bring More Fun in Promoting Your Book

.

The Road to Success – Photo by Michael Gras

.

Planing to write a book – or having one or more books already on the market?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone helping you to promote your book and show you: 

  • How to navigate all these Social Media sites?
  • And teaching you successful book marketing? 
  • Making it all fun – and not a daunting task?
  • Publicizing your book on all major social media sites for you?
  • Having someone you can ask all the questions you might have about self-publishing and book promotion?  

.

We will show you how easy it can be, once you learn the insider tricks!  

And most important: You will get this professional help for  just a dollar per day for a full three months! Actually only $98 for the whole package during the next three months! We are offering all this to authors, new and experienced. Besides writing useful free blogs and books to help authors navigate self-publishing, we are providing seminars and workshops. However, not everyone has the time to come for a whole weekend or longer to attend these courses. And there are writers everywhere in all parts of the world who cannot attend seminars easily.

For those we created an individual ONLINE BOOK MARKETING SEMINAR with one-on-one instruction over the phone (Skype) and through email, plus three month of advertising your book several times a day on all major social media sites.  To introduce this new marketing help, we are offering it for almost “next to nothing”.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post, when I explain

in detail how I can help you to achieve your goals

Begin the Life You Have Always Wanted

.

.

Sheila Callaham writes for sure one of the best blogs I know.  In an earlier posts she explained:

“One of the characteristics that separate happy, successful people from all the rest is their ability to look into the future with curiosity, excitement and knowing that the best is yet to come.

.
Let Go of the Past!
And, the only way to do that is to let go of the past.  That does not mean discount the life you have lived; rather, it means learn from your hardships and mistakes and then let them go, so you can move forward to create your perfect future.
.

The Past Can Be Haunting if You Allow it.
Failed relationships, bad business decisions, trusting someone unworthy of trust.  When you break it down, what people fear most is rejection and failure. This fear often keeps you looking over your shoulder, always on guard for the past creeping up to derail you.
.

Don’t Let You Hold Back
Fear cripples your ability to move successfully forward. When you live your life, looking over your shoulder fearing the past, you can’t see the opportunities right in front of you!  The good news is that fear doesn’t have to hold you back.”
.

Find the five simple steps for a successful professional and private life in her terrific article.

More Options to Freelance: Writing for the Web

Use your skills as a writer, which allows you to continue working flexibly from home, here are some freelance writing opportunities which are often overlooked:

Writing Blogs
Get paid to write posts on someone else’s blog to help them build their business. These jobs are consistent and often payed really well. Find blogging jobs on Craigslist or blogging job boards like
BloggingPro or Make a Living Writing.

Writing for Social Media
Many businesses don’t have the time to spend on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook and would rather outsource this part of their marketing. Find out what the company is doing and keep Twitter and Facebook up to date with them, and get paid for updates and occasionally asking questions to their following. How do you find a social media job?
Use Kijiji.com and Craigslist.com, even http://www.Elance.com. Or use Google Alerts www.google.ca/alerts to be notified when new possibilities appear.

Website Biographies 
Self-employed, artists, small companies – they all need a professional biography and they would rather have someone like you collect the facts and make them shine.

.
How do you get a job writing for these biographies? Again, sign up with Google Alerts or check out the latest posts on www.Kijiji.com, www.freelancewriting.comwww.Elance.comwww.freelancewritingjobs.ca,  www.academicexperts.us/freelance_writing.html, or www.Craigslist.com just to name a few.
