Hot Tips For Marketing Books For Self Publishers

With careful planning you can market, promote, and get (free) publicity (publicity is always free) on a limited budget; you can take the cheap and easy way. Whether you’ve just published a book or have a book that isn’t selling, now is the time to get to it; start marketing today! This article will provide you with easy, free, and cheap book marketing, promotion and publicity tips to get you headed in the right direction fast.

Send out the same press release to the editor of your local daily newspaper every week until you are called for an interview or are written up. Your book press release should not be written as you would a sales letter or flier, it should be written for the editor and tell about your book in a factual way, no opinion or glowing remarks. Make sure your press release spells out the ‘who, what, where, when, and why.’

Make sure you have at least one good press release, written in AP style that you can send out for the lifetime of your book. Mail a press release to all the trade journals in your field over and over again; you can use the same release. When picked up by wire services, a press release can easily end up generating hundreds of mentions for your book.

Press releases can generate thousands of dollars in sales when picked up by national trade or print media. Don’t underestimate the value of a good press release for making book sales.

Find a non-exclusive distributor with a good reputation to carry your book for the book store trade, as well as for other retailers. Contact any companies, corporations or organizations that might use your book for promotions; offer significant discounts for volume orders or for thousands of copies offer a specified amount above book production costs. Place free ads periodically for your book’s website on Craigslist in different categories to drive even more traffic to your website.

Contact non-bookstore booksellers and offer to leave books on consignment. Be your own publicist and send a press release along with a review copy of your book to publications in your book’s genre and to book review magazines. Offer to trade writing a monthly column in a trade publication in your books’ genre, in trade for display ads on the same page.

Your sales letter or flier should include an eye-grabbing headline, the benefits to the buyer, the book features, book sales information and testimonials. Remember to make sure your book is listed in Books-in-Print; don’t assume it’s already listed. Every day it’s important to focus on a variety of marketing approaches.

Make sure not to overlook the Internet; get yourself interviewed or profiled for sites both about writing, publishing and about the topics covered in your book. Market your book to your number one market first, and then go after the secondary markets. Try giving away one of your books in a raffle at a local function to get more book recognition.

Get as many testimonials about your book, as possible, from experts in the field relating to your title, not customers; use on your fliers and back of books. I’ve seen publishers lose a lot of money paying for expensive display ads, so beware if you do this; I don’t advise it in the beginning — get your feet wet first so you know what you’re doing.

Make sure to promote and market your book each and every day, both online and offline. Create an online contest and list it in online contest directories to drive traffic to your website.

Use your book promotion and book marketing dollars wisely; go after the free and cheap resources daily. Make sure to test, test, and test some more before you lay out large sums of money. The success of any book marketing effort depends on a good book and just plain hard work; its been done many times before and you can do it too.

Which is the best company for custom book publishing?

I want to publish a book, so I have searched on the net and I found the following: www.outskirtspress.com, craigspress.com.

Do you know if those are the best or do you know which company is the one to go to publish a book? Thanks.

I suggest you look over this site. It lists a bunch of publishing scams:
http://anotherealm.com/prededitors/pubwarn.htm

My suggestion… If you really want to be successful with your book, is to take the traditional route of publishing. Get an agent, and sign on with a major publishing company. This is the safest way, and if you have an agent, he or she can give you advice on which companies are the best and try to sell your book for as much money as possible. And then when you sign on with a company, they help you with covers and marketing your book.

If you wanna take that route, first get an agent. 🙂

What are some good easy-to-understand online writing sites?

I’ve been a member of the Critique Circle and Fiction Press, which I lasted for a few months and about a year, respectfully. I always enjoy other people’s input and have been wanting to try a new writing site, especially since Summer Vacation is just three days away. If you could post a site that you’ve heard of or belonged to a little bit about it, if one can post as many works, or if one has to review other’s works in order to post. Thanks in advance.

You Can Work From Home Online – Change Your Life With Profits on the Internet

For most people, living paycheck to paycheck is a long term reality – which is fine, until that paycheck stops coming, or simply is not enough to cover the bills! Luckily – we have the incredible power of the internet available to us – all you need is the right direction…

The very best news is that there are more people than ever with a track record of success online. What’s even more exciting is that those same people are publishing all the details of what they have done, usually in the form of a blueprint, so that you can follow them. If you’re like me – your next question is “why would they do that?” – well, more on that in a minute…

Before that, let me address one of the biggest challenges facing the new internet entrepreneur. Chances are, you don’t have 40-50 free hours each week as you get started! In fact, chances are that you have kids, or a job, or 2 jobs – in fact, your life is probably pretty full exactly where you are already. I can relate to that – starting my current business, I am working 40-50 hours per week and sometimes away from home for days at a time. So trying to fit in a new business can get a little complicated! Whatever your situation – the good news is that you are not the first person to start an internet business like that – and you can absolutely be successful.

There are two things that set the internet business apart from a traditional business – and both of these work in your favour – use them in every way you can and this will catapult your results:

Firstly – the internet is 24/7 and global! Meaning that anything you do online keeps working for you all the time, automatically, whether you are working or not. Take this article for instance – I am actually writing it at 5am because our 3-year-old decided that was a good time to be out of bed this morning! It doesn’t matter what timezone I am in, or if anyone else is even awake – because this article will be posted on websites around the world over the coming weeks – and will keep working for me, whether I am awake or asleep. So – when you are struggling to find time to work your business – be creative about your schedule. I do a lot of advertising early in the morning, or late at night – I have no problem losing a few hours of sleep in return for years of financial freedom to come. This is what is known as leveraging your time with a system.

Secondly – and this is the great secret that all the successful internet entrepreneurs know – make sure you are bringing other people into your business! Remember – the fact that you have just learned these two secrets means you know more than someone just getting started – so you could mentor them. For your business – find yourself a mentor who has been successful in the way you would like to – if you want to make $50,000 per month – you don’t want a mentor or a system with no concept of how to do that! Just be sure that they are in a system that will give you step by step training to achieve your goals.

So why would all these successful people be prepared to teach you what they know? Simple – by showing you how to become successful, they become more successful. And as you build your team and teach others what you have learned, your checks will grow too. That’s the power of leveraging other people’s time in your business.

So – how do you get these easy profits? Use leverage! At every chance you get – leverage your own time and efforts massively and you will be amazed at the results!

How To Synch Your Book And Web Site For Maximum Sales P1

Are you an author that wants to sell more books? Sure you are. We all are. I can say that with such confidence because if your message was important enough to be written; it is important enough to be read. Read by as many people as possible I might add.

In the new millennium the web must play an important role in your book’s marketing plan. Your website address should be included in as many places online and offline in your marketing materials as possible.

To develop your brand and increase your profits include your website address on all your printed media. Here are ten top ways to make sure your book and website are synched as precisely as your palm pilot and computer are:

1. Create a separate website address for your book.
Follow the lead of the best-selling authors in non-fiction publishing. Jack Canfield and Victor Hansen are not household names but their book series Chicken Soup is easily remembered.

Make your book site a direct response website. The more focused your book’s site is the better. It will be easier for your web visitors to locate and since there’s nothing to distract them they will buy faster. You can always link your book’s site to your concept site, if you have one with all your services, forum and general web community.

Additionally, make it easy to connect your website to your book. When you want to go to the Chicken Soup book series website, guess what you type into your browser’s web address box. You guessed it; simply type in Chicken Soup.

This principle is most effective with a concept title but it will work with any. Just make sure the web address is short and easy. Don’t try to use your whole title. Keep it simple and use the concept. Another good example is the Rich Dad Poor Dad series used RichDad for their web address.

2. Give Away Sample Chapters
One of the best ways to promote your book using your website is to give away 1-3 sample chapters or a mini e-course based on your book.

Fear of the unknown is one of the biggest impediments to sales. Even though the internet is growing leaps and bounds, there are still tons of people that are afraid to trust someone online. One of the best ways to get rid of that fear for the visitor is to offer them a free download of your sample chapters.

You can offer the free sample chapters in several formats. The most popular is Adobe PDF. Readers can download a free Acrobat Reader. Don’t forget your privacy statement promising not to share or sell your visitor’s email. Post your free sample offer in a prominent place and the privacy statement underneath.

3. Emphasize Testimonials.
Immediately below your free sample chapter, put lots of reader and authority testimonials. Hopefully you solicited pre-publication quotes from your readers as you were writing your book. If not, begin to gather testimonials from your readers. Showcase your best testimonials. Prospects want to know someone else has read and liked your book.

4. Focus on Relationship Marketing.
No one likes being sold. People want to know who they are buying from, especially since you are missing the face to face factor. Strive for a relationship with your readers instead of just a sale. Don’t be shy allow your personality to show. A client of mine was stressing over whether she should allow her picture to be posted on her website. Finally, she bit the bullet and her visitors rewarded her with increased traffic and sales.

The truth is people like to know there’s a person behind the website. Another client post a page of his favorite things on his site similar to what Oprah Winfrey does on her show; all with the purpose of connecting with his audience. While another post her family trips to personalize her site. Be real, be yourself and you’ll get more life long readers, customers and friends.

5. Offer Useful Content.
Have you begun writing articles in your field? If not, you should consider it. Writing articles (article marketing) is an easy way of getting free publicity. Publish a useful easy to read article in your field and you gain almost instant credibility. You may be saying I don’t have time to write articles in my field.

But wait, before you throw away this method of marketing. Have you considered transforming some of your book excerpts into short articles? It’s a simple way of making your book go the extra mile to help promote itself.

Leveraging your profits by synching your book and website can be rewarding and profitable journey. Implement the tips above, synch your book to website and prosper!

Free Writing – Four Tips to Make Blogging Work for You

Do you blog? If your answer is “No”, start blogging today, because if you’re a freelance writer and your name doesn’t show up in Google, your credibility is zero. Here’s how to get the most from your blog.
There’s more to blogging than you think. Forget considering your blog an online journal: your blog is a professional tool.
I could spend hours talking about the benefits of blogs for writers (and often do), but here are four tips to make blogging work for you.
1. Establish Your Portfolio Blog: Your “Name” Blog
The first blog (yes, you should have more than one) you need to establish is your “name” blog. So if your name is Milly Emmeline Smythe (which I hope is a fictitious name; I’m not referring to a real person), your blog would be titled Milly Emmeline Smythe.
As soon as anyone types your name into Google, your name blog should appear.
Big tip: please forget creative, cute names. Google and the other search engines are software programs; they have no concept of cleverness for the help www.bloggers-guide-to-profit.com. Your sole aim is for your name to show up as the first result in a search engine when a writing buyer types your name. If it does: instant credibility.
2. Use Social Media to Share Your Blog Posts
With millions of Web sites online, your blog needs links pointing to it so that people can find you.
The easiest way to get links is to use a couple of the many social media tools. Pick your favorites: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn… These tools can help you to get known via links, fast.
Another way to get known is to frequent forums.
3. Get Known on Forums Where You Can Get Hired
Stay away from writer’s forums. Your fellow writers, charming as they may be, can’t hire you. They may even harm your nascent career if you take their advice too much to heart. You’ll rarely find professional writers on writers’ forums: they’re too busy writing. However, you will find pro writers on forums for business owners, Webmasters and Internet marketers.
Adding a link to your “name” blog in your forum signature is an easy way of getting a link, and getting hired too. Capable freelance writers are in high demand on the Web.
4. Write About Your Favorite Topics (the Ones You Want to Get Hired to Write About)
New blogging writers tend to write about writing: it’s top of mind, and it’s what you know. However, it’s rarely the way to get hired to write.
Write about the topics you want to be hired to write about: parenting, business, technology…
Remember the search engines. Over time, your name should appear somewhere on the first page of the search results whenever someone enters search query terms like “writer”, “freelance” and “your topic.”
For example, if your pet topic is parenting skills for the help www.feed-reader-links.com, your name should appear whenever anyone types “writer parenting” into a search engine query field.
Use these tips to make blogging work for you to build your freelance writing career. There’s never been a better time to be a writer: you can make a great income, thanks to your blogs.Do you blog?
