Congratulations on writing your book! Now that it is written, it is time to promote it and make some sales. Let’s look at some tips to help your promote your book.
Make the most of the sales channels
Launching your book can be a busy time. When you are ready to launch, make sure that you are making the most of the sales channels available. We have all heard of Amazon, and want to be seen there, but with the help of tools like IngramSpark you can be seen in even more places with a simple file upload.
Have a reading or launch party
A book is a big thing, and if you have the budget for it, a reading or launch party is a great way to celebrate and make some sales. It also gives you the opportunity to say thank you, and from a PR point of view, a great event to invite the media too.
Share the “why” with the media
Get attention for your book by sharing it with the media. Your why behind the book will give it a human angle that journalists and their readers can relate to.
You need to grab the journalist’s attention with a catchy quote or two from your book, and support it with feedback from readers.
You can also offer the media – especially book reviewers – a copy or two to review for word of mouth media.
Guest Speaking is a great way to get in front of your new readers. By sharing your expertise, they want to know more about you and your book is a great takeaway for them to do that.
Don’t Give Up
You might be sick of your book, and it might seem like the time to stop. BUT the marketplace is big, and it takes time to reach it. So, keep telling your story and sharing your book.
