One of the most common questions authors ask is "how can I sell more books?"
I'll be honest with you – there's no magic bullet. Book selling success comes from creating a good book that people want to read, developing an effective book marketing plan to reach the right target markets for that book, and putting the plan into action.
A good book marketing plan includes a series of strategic promotional activities that build success over time.Think of it as a blueprint to guide you along the way – no more drifting along, wondering what to do next, or feeling overwhelmed by your options.
But where do you start and how do you develop an effective book marketing strategy for the type of book that you write?
Learn How to Sell More Novels
To help you get up to speed quickly, I've developed a new audio-visual training program designed just for authors of fiction.
One of the keys to selling fiction is word-of-mouth recommendations. In the How to Sell More Novels training program, you'll discover the best ways to get people reading and talking about your book and sharing it with others.
Here's what else you'll learn:
- 6 things that make a book successful and how readers choose novels to read
- How to define multiple target markets and find promotional hooks within your book
- The best type of website for novelists and what should be on your site
- Why book reviews are important through the lifecycle of a book
- The pros and cons of using Amazon's KDP Select program and how to maximize its effectiveness
- The top 10 promotional tactics for selling fiction and how to use them most effectively
- 7 other promotional tactics to consider
- Dozens of websites where you can promote your book at no charge
- 4 kinds of promotional campaigns you can use to sell more books
- Tips for developing a customized book marketing plan that works for you
What's Different About This Program?
While some marketing strategies apply to all types of books, there are some real differences in the most effective ways to promote children's books, novels, and nonfiction books. In this program you'll get book promotion advice focused specifically on selling fiction, not just general information.
Another special feature of this program is the information-packed Novel Marketing Resource Guide, filled with tips and links to more than 100 websites, how-to articles, and tools. The resource guide alone is well worth the price of this program.You'll save hours of research and frustration having these resources at your fingertips.
Sure, you can find lots of book marketing tips online, but you need to know what works and pull it all together into a strategic plan of action to get results. That's where the How to Sell More Novels program comes in.
