25 Book Promotion Tips - Part Four in the Smart Author Podcasts Six-Part Series on Book Marketing

Today in Episode 13 of the Smart Author podcast, I present part four in my six-part series on book marketing.

In this episode, I share 25 book promotion tips.

The tips are presented in logical order to roughly correspond to the different stages of a book’s marketing - from pre-launch to launch to post-launch, but most can be implemented in any order at any stage of an author's publishing journey. 

Some of the topics covered include:

  • How you can use preorders to keep loyal readers on your train
  • How to find and engage in specialized communities where your prospective readers are hanging out
  • How to leverage blogs to build your author brand and collaborate with fellow indie authors, plus how to organize a blog tour
  • How to use Smashwords Coupons to build readership, engage with readers and incentivize list-building
  • ... and much more.

If you haven't yet listened to my series on book marketing, I recommend you start with Episode 10 of the Smart Author podcast, which was part one in this series.

Next week's episode will explore social media strategies for Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

How do you skyrocket your book sales without a bigger platform, email list, paid traffic, or PR?

It starts by understanding how your readers buy books today, and how you can reach them (without a huge marketing budget).

I've found something that can show you how.

Bestseller Ranking Pro provides authors and publishers with live data on every single bestseller list on Amazon for eBooks and physical books (all 19,669 of them and counting), as well as advanced video trainings on how to maximize your sales and sales rankings on Amazon.

If you haven't met Tom Corson-Knowles yet, the author who created Bestseller Ranking Pro, I think you'll find his story inspiring.

Like most authors who have been in the game for years, the only signs of interest Tom got from publishers were rejection letters. After six years of trying to get a traditional publishing deal, he finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012.

It was a life-changing decision.

Just twelve months after publishing that first book, he had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone!

You can learn how in this video. These strategies have also helped him and his clients become #1 Amazon bestselling authors.
