So tonight I'm going to share tips on Marketing Your Book! We can all use that, right?
The book is Smashwords TM Book Marketing Guide - How to market your book by Mark Coker. The introduction gives a background to Smashwords and how they help authors and publishers market their books. The best part is the 37 Marketing Tips that are all free to put into action.
Here's a list of the tips I've already implemented.
Tip #1 - Update your email signatureTip #2 - Post a notice on your web site or blogTip #3 - Contact your friends, family, co-workers and fansTip #4 - Post a notice to your social networksTip #5 - Update your message board signaturesI've checked a few more off the list, too.
Some tips I would never have thought of:
Tip #25 - Encourage your fans to become affiliate marketers of your bookTip #27 - Do a sample chapters swap with another authorEach tip is expounded and explained with at least one paragraph, and links where applicable. It's concise, to the point and FREE! Yea, free help for us! I'm excited to try out more of the tips in the coming weeks.
