We write, we edit, we revise (and revise, revise and revise) and when it’s finally time to publish the book we’ve spent so much time writing (whether via a publisher or on your own) we begin to panic. Why? Marketing!
With the ever changing landscape of social media, savvy readers and a plethora of books available, it’s essential we stand out from the crowd, right?
Here’s my number one tip you’ll hear me tell authors time and time again….
Here’s what I recommend…
- Download it.
- Go through it and learn.
- Find a few tips that you can use for your next promo and ones that will fit you and your brand.
- Don’t stress over trying to do everything…just try one or two ideas at a time. If it doesn’t work, try another tip…
The best thing about this is that it’s not a one tip fits all approach. We all have different writing styles, different readerships, write in different genres – you get what I’m saying, right?
I especially love this quote from Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda:
There are a lot of great tips – 50 to be exact! Let me know which one resounds with you the most! And…join the conversation on twitter too!
