What’s Your Book Marketing Plan? 6 Crucial Steps to Include
Traditional publishers are far more likely to take a chance on an author when they know that he comes with an engaged following. If you’re planning to self-publish, a strong online platform is even more critical because you are entirely dependent upon your own ability to promote and distribute your work.
- Start early
- Build your website around yourself
- Focus on growing an email list
- Be generous
- Use social media strategically
- Seed early reviews
I can’t overstate the importance of those first few weeks after release. To improve your book’s discoverability on Amazon, it’s critical to have a handful of solid reviews — aim for 10, at a minimum. It’s ok for some of these to come from family and friends, but it’s even better for those to come from top Amazon reviewers and verified buyers.
On Sunday, we are going to chat about three kinds of Revision.
- Revising for Story.
- Revising for Craft
