Alright, so we have written our book, designed our cover, self-published or had it published and now all we need to do is sit back watch them sell like hot-cakes? Ya, no, I didn’t think so. There needs to be some marketing somewhere.
Personally, I have yet to pay for marketing because I am very cheap. But I know that I need to for my book that I am working on. Duh, if I am going to be in Oprah’s Book Club, then I need Oprah to actually see my book, right? But how? What is the most bang for your buck in the world of books?
I have friends that are marketing Queens, but me…I am not even a marketing pawn. The best that I have is this blog that automatically sends posts to my Facebook and Twitter. Yup, that is it. I know, I know, you are so very surprised that you have never heard of me. I know, me too. ha ha ha Kidding aside, I need some serious marketing advice.
I am willing to put out a little bit of money for my book, but I want to make it count. I know there isn’t a guarantee of sales or anything, but I would like to get it in front of people’s faces that would actually consider buying it. I have mentioned the virtual book tour previously and am thinking that will run me about $299.00. So if you guys think that I could do better somewhere else for that kind of money, then please share with me. And I am not very familiar with some of the marketing terms, so please keep that in mind and keep it simple for me! 😉
Thank you all very much!.
