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 Nonfiction Books
To help you get up to speed quickly, I've developed a new audio-visual training program designed just for authors of nonfiction books.
One of the keys to selling nonfiction books is to find ways to showcase the expertise of the author. In the How to Sell More Nonfiction Books training program, you'll discover the best ways to do that.
Here's what else you'll learn:
- 7 things that make nonfiction books appealing to buyers
- How to define multiple target markets for how-to and narrative nonfiction
- The top 10 promotional tactics for selling nonfiction books
- 12 other promotional tactics for nonfiction books
- How to get paid for promoting your book
- 4 kinds of promotional campaigns you can use to sell more books
- The pros and cons of using Amazon's KDP Select program and how to maximize its effectiveness
- 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 nonfiction books, not just general information.
Another special feature of this program is the information-packed 37-page Nonfiction Book Marketing Resource Guide, filled with links to 100+ websites, how-to articles, and tools that will give you an edge in promoting your books. 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 Nonfiction Books program comes in.

How is this program different from the Savvy Book Marketer's 5-module Ultimate Book Marketing Plan Workshop?
This program is a condensed version of the Ultimate Book Marketing Plan Workshop and it's specifically tailored to your book genre. This is fast-track program to get you started quickly, but it does not include all of the planning content, worksheets and checklists that come with the more comprehensive program.
If you'd like a more in-depth training program on how to create a customized marketing plan for your book, take a look at the Ultimate Book Marketing Plan Workshop.
What if I write more in than one genre?
Please contact me to make special arrangements if you write several different types of books - fiction, nonfiction and/or children's. My email link is below my photo in the right column of this page.
Which version of this program should I enroll in if I write narrative nonfiction?
If you write factual information told in a story format (such as biography, memoir, true crime, or history) you may find either the Novels or Nonfiction version of this course to be most useful, depending on your book. Please contact me if you're not sure which one would be the best fit. My email link is below my photo in the right column of this page.
What if this program doesn't meet my needs?
My training programs are 100% guaranteed. If for any reason this program doesn't meet your expectations, just let me know within 30 days and you'll get a full refund, with no hassles. If you have any questions about the program or any problems in placing your order, you can reach me through the link beneath my photo in the column to the right.
