In a recent book signing, homosexual published author and I was talking and she commented that she did not feel like her publisher had made enough for her in the market perspective. The conversation went something like this:
Creator X: How do you like your publisher?
Lori: It has been great!
Author X: Well, I liked to change and cover art but I'm not happy with their marketing. They have not done anything for me.
Lori: When did your book come out?
Author X: Last year.
Lori: Do not they put up with any bookshops and things?
Author X: Yes, but that's all they did.
Lori: What have you done with your marketing plan?
Author X: What do you mean?
Lori: For example, I have contacted women, churches and nursing homes. I have been making a lot of social media online. I send out more than 10,000 emails to potential readers. I have driven around to install airplanes / push cards in a paperback. Have you done anything?
Author X: no.
Lori: Well, I think it's the responsibility of the author to be active in promoting and selling my own books and I do at least 5 calls a week, 5 emails per week and 5 inboxes a week to try to come get in touch with people and get the audience.
Author X: No, I have not done anything like that.
Lori: Well, you should. The publisher is getting us into the distribution system for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. and make national content; It is our job to introduce ourselves locally and develop loyalty groups and relationships with local bookstores and things.
After this conversation, I wonder what kind of unrealistic expectations the authors had about the success of the book if she did not invest in her own time and money to introduce her.
Yes, I have read a few hubs, blogs, and other articles out there about marketing and especially the marketing of a library, but it's not like I had a mentor who gave me a list of things to do or ready-to-do list to do. Some of it is just common sense and most of it is just footwork and follow-up with people.
BUILDINGS: Your publisher can get you into the bookshop for booking and other promotional events, but you can contact owners or managers of local bookstore to conduct booking permissions yourself. I scored three of my signed books on my first three cold calls to the bookshops and asked if they would allow me to have one. Another opportunity with local bookstores is to offer your books for sale to them on shipment. There is work / work order for them because they do not pay for the books unless the books sell and they finish the price with the author 60/40 (60% of the sales price goes to the author, 40% goes to the store).
FLYERS / PUSH CARDS: Well, it's not a glamorous activity, but there's no harm in mapping your way or targeting a division and placing a pilot or postcard in a paper box. My guess is that you get about 25% return rate (1/4 of 1% of those who get a pilot will actually buy the book) but mileage is tax-free or if you're in the neighborhood, you & # 39; will benefit from exercise. I was pleased to find out about a recent book signature when a woman came up to me and said, "Do you know?" I got a pilot for your book in the paper box for a few weeks and I ordered the book online and you're here! "I confirmed that the drive would have been be worth it. You can get these types of content for free in Vista Print – you only pay for the shipment.
OPTIRLÍFSBÍRAR. Unfortunately for me, my local authority will not allow me to create a booking or bookstore at any of their branches. While most libraries will allow most authors to do that, free libraries in the area returned to my book because it was "religious and may violate people and we want to be a worldly organization."
Work / school. In addition, I contacted all current and former employers and universities to request permission to register a library event on-site. All but one of them read agrees, with only one to turn me down, again because the book is a Christian book and they were afraid of breaking people.
Having just been introduced to Facebook, and only for personal use, I was surprised to find a host of social media available for presentation and contact with readers and potential readers. Among those I'm using are now:
H O L I D A Y C A R D S is @christophersbooks, @charliescornerbookstore, @dayonebaby, @russianhillbookstore and last day today @_carmelblue. Happy now the last few days to shop. 🎁

Statistics show that only 20% of published books sell more than 100 copies. A big problem is that most writers never think about marketing and sales, which is great if your reason for writing is purely literary. However, if you write a book to build your business or create additional revenue, you can not afford to think about marketing.
Creating a marketable book does not mean you have to violate the book of the brain. Managing marketing from the outset can help you create a better book. So, before writing the first word, think about the market, which includes:
Readers (the people you expect to buy and read your book). First, make sure you know who they are. To say that they are the owners of the company is not enough. Paint a clear picture, ie. age, sex, race, geographical location, industry, income, professional relationship, etc. This information will help you determine how and where to reach them. You also want to identify what appeals to your audience. What style of writing is most likely to get? What gets their attention – hype, facts, controversy, celebrities, etc?
Contestants (Successful and Inappropriate Books Similar to You). Check out your competitors so you know what books are selling; identify elements that work and use them in your book; identify missing elements that can analyze your book from current versions. Also check the publisher, agent and editor (you may want to contact them in the future). Third, review their marketing efforts; what technology did they use to collect media and create sales?
Managers (if you are looking for a traditional publisher, you may need an agent). Do your research to identify drugs that specialize in your particular brand. Do you want to contact the agents need a query letter, a book proposal (for nonfiction books). Both documents are selling tools. Your brightness boost increases when you use these tools to reach the top of the Ombudsman's interest. In order to do that, you must know what appeals to the Ombudsman.
Editor (if you decide to go directly to the publisher and release agent). Approximate editors version is similar to approaching agents. Most often you start with a query letter; Again, it must be written in a way that increases the interest of the editor. Write a boring questionnaire that simply tells the facts or information about your book and it will probably end up in the trash.
Literature Publications. Before your book hits the market, you want to send a copy of your book or book a literary version for review. Library, libraries and readers often make buying decisions based on reviews. So before your book is published, find out where you want to send your book for review and be sure to follow the instructions for submission.
Bookstore (independent and chain stores). When the book is written and published, it must be marked by bookkeepers. Each library has different needs and priorities for the books they sell. They also have different requirements to determine which books they live. Understanding their needs and requirements improves your ability to convince them to publish your book or set up a book signature.
Business books are available to appeal to all parts. It needs to understand what each part needs and need and develop a market area or a hook that meets their needs.
