You’ve researched, written and self-published your masterpiece. Now what? You’re not quite ready to reap the benefits. Unfortunately, you can’t just sit back and wait for sales to start coming in. You must promote and market your book.
Potential readers will not read your book if they don’t even know it exists. It is crucial you use any means possible to get the word out about your book. Build a FaceBook page, if you don’t already have one. Open a Twitter account. Sign up for Google Plus and join circles. Add your information about your book and your author profile to Goodreads. Set up your Author Central account at Amazon. Send out a newsletter to all your email contacts. Print business cards and hand them out to everyone you meet. Join authors’ forums you can participate in discussions pertaining to your book’s subject or genre.
Some of these tasks can be overwhelming, especially for first-time authors. We can help with everything from establishing accounts at social media sites to managing your virtual book tours. We also design, host and maintain WordPress websites or blogs for authors who don’t yet have an established online presence.
A website or blog is important for engaging in online promotion and marketing – more so than a FaceBook page. You’ll reach a much wider audience (believe it or not, there are still quite a few people who refuse to join FaceBook!) and you’ll have the ability to promote your OWN products – not be forced to show ads for other companies or authors! Then, we’ll help you link your website to a personal FaceBook page, the Amazon Author Central page, Goodreads and more. Each website can function as a virtual office, providing promotional and biographical information, reader/fan engagement, links to the book’s page on the online retailer websites and more!
