Summer is upon us and it’s easy to get derailed with your book marketing; but there are actually simple ways to keep on top of how to sell your books with minimal time spent!
Our Book Marketing Tips and Author Success podcast has a pretty solid library of minisodes, essentially sales and marketing tips that you can soak up in 10 minutes or less.
So if you commit to spending just a few minutes a week listening to a minisode, and then a few more minutes following through with our recommendations – you can rest assured your author platform won’t just survive the summer, it will thrive, and you’ll be proactively carving out a bigger piece of the summer reading pie!
Here’s a recap of just some of the minisodes you can access in our podcast library:
Not all keywords are created equal. Some of the search terms you’re using are costing you more than they’re offering in return. And book marketing can be pricey, so you’ll want to save money wherever possible!
When learning how to sell your books with Amazon ads, it’s crucial to figure out what keywords you should be using to draw in your desired readers.
Goodreads features, like book marketing in general, are constantly evolving.
Strategies that were a go-to for many years may have seen their time come to pass. Be protective of your time, and get to know which features are still worth the effort and which aren’t.
Having a large list of newsletter subscribers means relatively little when you don’t have an open rate to match. Once a quarter, I sort through my list and remove subscribers who aren’t opening my newsletter. It’s hard — but it will free up seats for those who truly want to engage with your content.
Collaboration is the future of book marketing. Writers within your same genre are not competition, they’re resources — because readers don’t buy from only one author.
Network within your genre and collaborate with authors who have a shared target audience. This is how you can expose yourself to new readers and build your following.
