Getting a acim published is a lot easier, and simpler, than in years past. From idea to publication it can be a matter of weeks, even days.
As in the past, publishing is the easy part. Sure, in the eyes of the author, that may seem farfetched. Yet, ask any author who has made money from their books and they will likely say the marketing takes more effort.
You see, once the book is written, it’s done. With marketing, it’s an ongoing process. One that must be attended to on a daily basis, if you want to get the best results possible.
The main thing you have to do is generate interest in your book. There are countless ways to generate interest including media releases, email broadcast messages, blog posts and paid advertising. One of the best, and often overlooked by an author, is reader reviews.
Reviews give readers a sense of what the book is about thus increasing sales. Reviews are also excellent social proof that the book is worth reading. Granted, some authors get bogus reviews, but ethical authors do what they can to get “real” reviews.
To give your reviews a lot of weight, avoid paying for them. Actually, your book can be banned from some sites if it is found the reviews have been paid for.
